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

The room was warm and comfortable, I was a little worried about the train line but the trains stop in the night and I hardly noticed them. Food was good, though the selection for the evening meal was limited and a bit expensive, it was good quality though. The room I had felt a bit tired, but it was OK.... More

I have been meaning to submit a review of the Walnut Tree for some time. I struggle for places local to me that are of a standard my parents are happy with, but the Walnut never disappoints! The service is always polite and personable, yet professional, and the food is always superb. But the best testament I can offer in... More

We went for a meal at the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. The negatives were the parking and the sound of the trains passing by every few minutes. I found it a little bit expensive and the menu is not very vast.

Stayed the night as my partner booked it as a last minute treat for valentines. The staff were friendly, atmosphere in the pub ok but a few locals dominated the area. The meal was nice but had limited selection. The room was clean and comfortable, however we had a room at the front and I don't think it's ever a... More

I planned this trip last minute and the hotel were very accommodating and we got a room and dinner in the bar area. On arrival I realised the scenery was a train track and we were greeted well but laughed at when I asked if breakfast in our room was an option. The room was small and views of trains... More

Came here for dinner Saturday night, staff and service was excellent but the food let them down. Halloumi cheese starter was one thin slice on a bed of tasteless melon. Pate was a very small portion too with just 2 crackers. Overall not very good value for money,
