The Walnut Tree in the outskirts of Chichester was just amazing and the choice of food on the menu will blow you away.

I live just down the road so to pop in and have a drink and a snack/meal is great. Attentive staff and great food.

I was disappointed with this pub. We went there for Sunday lunch. The pub is in a nice surrounding and it's nicely decorated inside. However the service was absolutely opalling.. We've never been asked to order drinks .. We had to ask ourself after a good 30 min wait! After finishing food, again no one bothered to clean out the... More

We apologise for the "lack of service" on your recent visit. We try to maintain the best level of service and of course the quality of our food. Unfortunately we were hit by staff sickness and fell short of our usual high standards, it is always very difficult to deal with such problems, particularly on a Sunday. We are looking... More

Fantastic meal. Great, fast, efficient service and friendly staff. Made to feel very welcome. Couldn't be happier with our family celebration. Plates were all empty, everyone had perfect food and the quality is second to none. Not had a meal this good in a very long time. None of the food was microwave/ready made. All fresh and menu choice huge.

Called whist passing on the way to where we were staying nearby which is always a risk when you don't know the restaurant but were pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly, the gastro food served quickly and of very good quality and quantity. The lamb shank cooked perfectly as was the fish.

Good quality and priced pub food. Recommended by family who live locally and thankfully they knew where to order food - apparently you order at side of the bar before being seated. A sign to indicate this would be really helpful especially when the bar is busy. Waitress was friendly and then you pay at the bar

Food is average and therefore expensive. Vegetables were not served with two of the mains courses we ordered even though we asked the waitress. Ordering and paying was chaos. We mentioned the missing veg when we paid and the owner shrugged his shoulders. My 88 year old mother in law then complained and we were asked to wait outside. Eventually... More

There is no doubt that the temporary manager has done an excellent job in improving the service and the quality of food at this restaurant.
