Went along to the Walnut Tree on a lovely sunny Friday evening to sit in the beer garden. The outside area is great and offers good facilities for the kids! Knowing that the food is excellent here decided to eat and as it was Friday its 'fish night'! Wow we are so glad we did! Fresh haddock in beer batter... More

Been here before and have written a glowing report. Came here again and am still writing a glowing report, with one sad regret. The Sticky Toffee Pudding I praised highly is no longer on the dessert menu. Sob sob! All earlier remarks however still apply.

Staff were very friendly with efficient service. Good value for money too with the lunch prices cheaper than many other pubs around York. Have an... More

Brilliant!!!! Thankyou Sue for putting on an outstanding buffet for the other halfs 50th. Everyone commented at how different it was from the norm. Thanks Richard and his staff for a wonderful evening and nothing was too much trouble. We will be back.

I booked in advance as I was travelling from Aberdeenshire and meeting friends in York. There was a great selection go Gluten Free food on the menu and the cook was clearly knowledgeable about this. She had remembered my request for GF food and came out to reassure me about the menu. I also was able to order a variation... More

Found this on tripadvisor only a short walk from our hotel. Nice friendly pub atmosphere, food surprisingly good and better than most pub fare. Staff were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we (and other guests as we overheard) had a good experience. Also good and very tasty vegetarian options which was a...
