We had a super meal at The Walnut Tree recently and were looked after very well by Emma and her team. Being Friday it was fish night ... and what a fish it was :-) Beautifully cooked and in the lightest of beer batters, and with homemade mushy peas too! The fact that we could see torrential rain thundering down... More

Had supper there last evening , the steak was brilliant, in every way, succulent and cooked to perfection . If you book make sure you advise them of your requirement before your visit as they sell out pretty quickly. Staff extremely accommodating

Took our grand daughter for her birthday lunch. Food was great, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Been back several times, and each time the service was excellent.

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
