Evening Meal

We came here for tea on Saturday night and was fitted in by the staff as they had quiet a few bookings. The staff where all lovely and attentive and made us feel very welcome without hassling us. The food was also great and would come here again. x

We came for dinner and loved the atmosphere! The food was absolutely delicious, the staff made us feel really at home and were very welcoming. I noticed that there were no fruit machines etc. and the regulars didn't swear, weren't loud or aggressive...such a pleasant surprise for a traditional pub! I would definitely recommend for the civilised atmosphere and relaxed... More

I visited this pub the other day with a friend of mine. We've been here before but usually just have drinks. We decided to have lunch and I must say it was excellent, it was definitely worth the price. After we decided to have a pudding, syrup sponge. We was charged £4.50 per pudding, we expected a good size and... More

I witnessed some pretty horrific bullying by the owner, rude, arrogant and just a shameful way to behave to anyone let alone a customer. After my partner politely asked if we could get served after waiting for over five minutes and other parties (regulars) getting served first, the owner snapped and asked to leave and he 'Didn't care' about what...

This pub was recommended to us by the owners of The Ascot B and B just down the road. The food was wonderful and we were looked after so well. The waitress was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Ignore the comments from the lady who was so upset about her experience. Don't think she was in the... More

Have been in 4 times now and on three occasions have been utterly disappointed by the beer. This time I actually returned my pint because it was rancid and was still charged for the gin and tonic that I had as a replacement. Such a shame as the pub has so much potential.

This is a local pub to me and have gone here on and off for years. Went today for some food and to watch the football but was met with the worst treatment I have ever experienced in my life. We were left waiting to be served for longer than is reasonable and were first in line when the owner... More

As is sometimes the case a spur of the moment decision often turns up trumps and so it was to our very recent visit to The Walnut Tree. Initially we went for a couple of drinks and a chat but as soon as we went in the smell of cooking entered our noses and a meal as well it had... More
