The walnut tree is my local pub and this weekend I went with a friend for a good old sunday roast. The staff are welcoming as ever, and the chef always comes out to say hello. We decided we would have starters, the leek and potato soup was delicious and he opted for the duck pate which was scraped clean... More

A large group of my family and I visited The Walnut Tree for Sunday lunch after it had been highly recommended by friends and it did not disappoint! In the past when we have dined out as a big group it has sometimes felt as though the quality of food was compromised however this definitely was not the case here,... More

Went to the walnut tree as part of a works Christmas party at the beginning of December. The Christmas menu gave a good choice of starters, mains and desserts and all very reasonable at £19.95. I started with the mango and crayfish cocktail which was lovely and fresh with a citrus mayonnaise, this was followed by a pork fillet cooked... More

First time we had decided to ditch the conventional overpriced Christmas dinner in a hotel and instead go to the local pub near work. We all paid £10 each for buffet. it all looked freshly prepared when it arrived. There was a choice of three sandwiches', two quiches, a couple of salads, spring rolls and some fish. To be fair...

As many other reviewers have indicated it is advisable to book. On the evening we visited there was a large booking in the actual restaurant and also a large contingent of people having a buffet in the bar area. This all made for a friendly and lively atmosphere in the place. Staff were friendly at our table and behind the... More

This is a pub where the staff and landlord (perhaps the manager?) are all friendly and accommodating, the food was lovely and portions were large. Fish & chips in particular I reckon can 1 portion can feed two people :). On weekends evenings it's recommended to book in advance, the restaurant part is good for families, groups and also for...

Very welcoming, sticky toffee to lie down for. Emma very welcoming as are her "helpers" We visit here at about 6 weekly intervals, and always find the welcome super. As other reviewers say though, it is better to book to avoid disappointment.

Friendly staff and amazing food, try the burgers.. very welcoming, will definately go again! The co-owner came and took our order, she was very helpful and would have bent over backwards for us and the food was all on time, giving us chance to soak up the atmosphere and converse.
