Great welcome to 3 generations of our family on Mother's day

Went for dinner on Mother's Day this year - what a great choice for all the family. Clearly was a busy day, but we were made to feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We were all served quickly and even the eccentric tastes of some of our younger eaters were happily taken care of... read more

My wife and I visited this pub for lunch having travelled to York from Sunderland for a funeral. When we walked in we nearly walked out again as there was some decorating going on but we were quickly and warmly welcomed by the lady behind the bar and shown to a table in the conservatory. We ordered a cheese and... More

To save Mum cooking yet again, after Christmas, we went for an evening meal here. Very friendly and welcoming pub, good atmosphere and nice and warm. The pub was quite quiet for a Saturday night, but it was the day after Boxing Day so many regulars might have been away. Drinks beforehand, and then two starters, prawns in garlic and... More

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...
