My wife (Liz) booked dinner at the Walnut Tree Blisworth (late notice) to see what the hotel/restaurant was really like. Main reason being that they had live music and comedy nights. We arrived to find a hotel located next to a very busy rail line and fairly close to a canal (less noisy LOL). Lots of historic interest for rail... More

Very comfortable bar and eating area with a good short menu and quick service. Plenty of space and a choice of sofas or proper tables and chairs. We stayed for lunch, but the dinner menu looks very good.

Another excellent dinner at The Walnut Tree. The food was delicious. I had a seabream risotto and my husband had steak. Both dishes were presented really well and all the ingredients were really fresh and tasty. We shared a bread board with homemade pesto and dips and then had the homemade ice cream for desert. Everythng is really good quality... More

a late night check in was no problem, the night porter was expecting us, a great welcome shown to our room, which was spotless, large and a great shower. Breakfast was in a lovely room, and has to be one of the best in recent years, the owner told ne he sourced only the best, and it shows, breakfast service... More

Nice building but tired and needs a refurb. Very close to mainline railway so very noisy. Rooms need a refurb they are old and basic. Restaurant / bar seems more like a locals pub than a hotel bar. Average

My Daughter wanted a small and intimate wedding and selected The Walnut Tree Inn. We visited from the West Country a short time before the day for Sunday lunch and were impressed with the food and the service immediately. Come the wedding, things could not have been better, from arrival the staff were extremely proffessional and went out of their... More

I led my walking group from the Walnut Tree Inn for a short walk followed by lunch. There was a warm and smiley welcome for us when we arrived to pre order lunch....it was obvious that the staff was organised and everything was going to be spot on. After the walk, we were sat with our drinks and well done... More

Staff here are very helpful. Hotel could do with a good clean and overall refit. Our room was freezing on arrival as window was wide open and we arrived quite late. Luckily there was an oil heater we could plug in. Bathroom definately needed a good clean. Shame the clea liness was such an issue because hotel in general is... More

Charming hotel with character. Mind your step as you enter! Parking round the back! No issues. Great friendly and understanding staff, some still to learn their trade. Compact comfortable room with shower Good food, both breakfast and dinner! Good selection of ale. Room was furthest away from bar and railway line! No noise on a Saturday night.

We got married here on 20th March and it was perfect. Nothing went wrong, staff were incredibly helpful, especially Harriet and Tina. Wedding breakfast and evening buffet were superb, staff remained attentative to us the whole day. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that due to the nearby train track I barely got any sleep the night of... More
