A party of 12 of us enjoyed an evening meal on 4th July, having pre-ordered at Sue's request. The meal was served promptly and with great good humour and everyone found their food delicious. Sue even emailed us the cashew nut loaf recipe afterwards. The atmosphere was pleasant - it's clearly a popular local for many people. Don't miss out... More

The Walnut Tree was recommended by the B&B where we were staying. All 6 of our group agreed it was one of the best restaurant meals we had had for some time. The menu choice was just a little bit different with plenty of choice and Sue, the chef, came out to offer us different sauces if we wanted. The... More

Went here with a large party. The service was excellent & the food so tasty & interesting. I don't eat meat/wheat, so I was pleasantly surprised to see the range of meals I could have. I chose the cashew nut, prune & almond loaf! Gorgeous, moist & tasty! We had a great evening. Everyone enjoyed their food. Will return next... More

Having eaten here on several occasions now the food is always of good quality and locally sourced and the homemade chips are a must!! The themed nights are great, especially fish and chip Friday! Nothing is too much trouble for the chef and she is happy to make alterations to the menu to accommodate different dietary requirements. There is always... More

Tried the Sunday Lunch 1 course for £9.25 & £6.25 for kids. Adult meals were Pork Loin and Mushroom and Pepper strogonoff. In short both adult meals were disappointing with the strogonof particularly poor. Without the rice (which is how it is served on a Sunday) the strogonoff was more a case of soup with very little actual pepper or... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was delicious. Happened to be pie night the night we came and the pies we chose were worth it. Chips we're yummy too. Wished we could try other options from menu, but didn't have time to visit again on this trip.

I occasionally visit this pub and am always let down by the average service, expensive prices and extremely unfriendly regulars. I decided to visit the pub last night to sample their new 'speedquizzing' as i regularly visit other speedquizzing franchaises. It has to be said, this is by far the worst ine so far. Very very slow quiz, despite the... More

This is our local pub. We had never thought to eat here previously possibly because I had made an assumption based on the slightly dated decor. We went for Sunday lunch - 4 adults and 2 children. We booked just prior to going and were greeted with a really warm welcome. The lady who looked after us could not have... More

We've eaten here a few times now as it's just down the road. Tried to eat one Friday without booking and there was no availability, which shows how popular it is. The owner is very passionate about her pub and it shows. This is not fine dining, it's just good quality, hearty food in a relaxed pub. Only a 4... More

We used to use this pub and beer garden when we lived in York so finding it was still there and had a good reputation for food we gave it a go. We got a very friendly welcome and a very helpful waitress who mixed and matched the children's dishes for us and the 2 empty plates said it all.... More
