Stumbled upon this fantastic establishment whilst trying to source a new 4x4 ,we were far from home and needed a place to recuperate from the selection of "mutton dressed as lamb" that we had viewed. Martin the landlord runs what i reckon to be one of the finest small bespoke inns in the uk,and that's coming from someone who has... More

What this pub offers is a refreshing journey back to when pubs were pubs, where you can drink locally and intelligently sourced ale, and eat good food freshly prepared at a leisurely pace with no intrusive sports TV, music, or games machines, served by local slightly eccentric characters with a vast knowledge of the beautiful local area. Long may Martin... More

Whilst away for a weekend we booked this local restaurant for an evening meal and were so impressed on our first visit that we returned the following evening. Staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming and food was cooked to order, fresh, delicious and of a high standard. We would definitely recommend eating here when visiting the area.

Yet another wonderful stay at the Walter de Cantelupe. We stayed a couple of nights in a large spacious room with a recently added ensuite. The pub's atmosphere is always friendly & cosy with customers being greeted by name by the landlord, Martin, which is a great personal touch. The menu didn't extensive but varied & it's so obvious that... More

Thank you so very much for your appreciative comments and useful feedback. I'm really glad you like the accommodation and the latest improvement ie the new en suite. The fact also that I'm able to cook dishes that are not currently on the published menu ( but will be soon ) shows customers that unlike many places, the menu reflects... More

We had a large family gathering at the pub for lunch. The service, especially from the older female waitress, was joyless and amateur. She was not only surly and unhelpful, but also got our orders wrong. And sadly the food was presented without much love, let's be honest. Even though it's local we won't be going back there again. A... More

Dear Sean777 Tthank you for posting on Tripadvisor. Firstly, I am disappointed you did not enjoy your recent visit to Walter de Cantelupe Inn. You decided, for reasons yet unknown, not to seek and speak to me before leaving after lunch, choosing instead to air your views on the internet anonymously. Maybe your past experiences of complaining directly have proved... More

We had dinner with some friends at this pub. Despite the fact that we'd pre-ordered it took about 2 1/2 hours for us to complete a three-course meal. This was due entirely to the long wait before we started to eat, which was then repeated between courses. The place wasn't exactly crowded, either: I reckon there were only about 15... More

We visited for lunch on Saturday. The service, and food were excellent, far better than the average with delicious freshly cooked vegetables all very attractively presented. The food was excellent value for money. Steak and ale pie was rated as particularly delicious by the company. We will certainly return. The atmosphere was extremely pleasant and could not really be faulted... More

'The Walter' is a genuinely lovely country pub with a warm welcome for us and our Labrador puppy, After a long day travelling and visiting a nearby dog show in Norton, we booked in to stay for one night Bed, breakfast and evening meal.

I'm really glad you had such an enjoyable stay here at Walter de Cantelupe Inn last weekend. Having also Stella, your fun-loving black lab to stay brought back memories of my late lab, Monty.

Guest reviews are always useful, however, positive reviews are especially welcome. The staff and I realise that satisfied customers are what we are here for and there's never a moment that we are not considering what visitors might want, whether they are just dropping into the Bar for a drink or staying for one or two days.
