I booked a week before to have a Mothers Day meal with my family, there was 9 of us in total and we had booked for 6pm. It was very busy as we expected, but despite going over to ask when our table was ready, and being told someone would come over, we were left waiting until I went up... More

Yesterday we said goodbye to my 49 year old husband with a wake laid on by the wonderful staff at the walnut tree. The fire was lit, the food was more than ample and a great selection. Dave, the relief manager was kind, caring and the perfect gent. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. For us yesterday was a traumatic... More

We visited on Friday evening and anticipated the worst - expected, in view of other reviews, it to be very busy. We arrived early for a 6pm booking (when serving starts) and enjoyed our meal with it not being busy. Some tables were in use, but a lot were empty. So, if you want to avoid the crush, go early....

Regular visitor, never disappointed. A superb and varied menu choice to match both tastes and budgets, decent beer and choice of wines. Whether in a larger group or just a few of us, the food arrives hot and on time. Always made to feel welcome and never rushed. Good sized portions so don't fill up beforehand ! Tip : For... More

We were a party of 30 and had pre-booked and pre-ordered our selection, this worked well and resulted in the food being served promptly, it was well cooked and everybody enjoyed the experience Looking forward to another visit soon

Food was very nice plenty of it and all served streaming hot. Plenty of choice so something for all taste buds. Service was good and didn't feel rushed. Tip if you have the camembert to share it is more than plenty for two would serve more 3-4. Will definitely visit again.
