Wow, the new owners, Lisa and Adrian, are making their mark early! Only been in a couple of weeks and already making a difference. New chef has revamped the menu which now gives a light menu choice for the bar or something more restaurant style if you want. Great food, can recommend the beef fillet and the butternut risotto.

we first found this hotel and restaurant while looking for somewhere for dinner on the way back from Devon. An excellent find and we enjoyed dinner so much that we booked an overnight stay the next time we returned from Devon. Excellent food with very friendly and attentive service. All the staff are very welcoming and the owners are fully... More

Fantastic food, large portions and reasonably priced. Good choice of drinks, excellent staff who explained that due to a large party there would be a slight delay in service and tended to us as soon as possible. I highky recommend this establishment, at only a minute off the A303 it must be considered on the trip to Cornwall.

I stayed at this little Jewell in Somerset whilst working at the Glastonbury Festival. Gina and Pete were very welcoming and friendly, they could not do enough to make my stay enjoyable. The room was clean fresh and very relaxing, everything you could ask for, the breakfast was amazing, set me up for the day, I ate in the Rosewood... More

We stayed at the Walnut Tree whilst in Somerset for a friend's wedding. Throughout the entirety of our two night stay the staff made my wife and I feel as if we were practically at home. They were extremely welcoming and accommodating and we couldn't fault the service. The restaurant food was extremely well priced considering its excellent quality, none... More

My 2nd visit here and somehow was better than my first! The hotel is in a beautiful country village, very warm welcoming from who I assume were the owners. It was a very hot day and the room was lovely and cool with a suntrap little garden at the back of the room. Great garden to sit in and have... More

Food was great. Staff attentive and friendly. Definitely a keeper to stay at when in this part of the country. Fairly priced. Parking on the premise. Rooms excellent for a country inn. Will stay there again.

I would not stay at the Walnut Tree Again. I felt that the price of the room did not reflect the facilities or services on offer. The food was poor and overpriced with very little choice. The breakfast was cold and when I complained about my scrambled egg being hard and dry, the cook shouted that all the eggs were... More

Found this venue after being stuck on A303 in traffic. When driving West take the turn for West Camel and The Walnut tree pub, restaurant and hotel is about 500m on the right. The place was very well decorated, clean and inviting. We only stopped for lunch and a driving break but the food really was top drawer all is... More

loved inn style hotel about 10 mins outside Yeovil. I would describe this more as an inn with bedrooms (located adjacent to inn/restaurant) with external access from courtyard / gardens - rooms a little old fashioned, but comfortable and the owners hospitality and attention was fantastic - businesses such as these need to be supported!
