Went last night with family group and we were all impressed. Very extensive menu, found the choosing and ordering 'system' fine and no problem. Efficient service and food of good quality. The twice cooked pork was delicious and the gravy was to die for. Second time of visiting (had fish and chips first time and would recommend) and will definitely... More

Visiting area and happened on this pub by accident having being recommended a pub around the corner that had stopped serving food when we arrived. They pointed us in the direction of the walnut tree and we were bowled over by the quality of the food and size of the portions. This is truly excellent pub food using top quality... More

We often visit this lovely pub, usually on a Wednesday evening, blackboards display the menu and once you have chosen you order at the bar/servery and are shown to your table. The food is very wholesome and fresh and we have been going here a number of years with no complaints! Which I must say is quite a rarity for... More

We went to this restaurant yesterday for lunch and wandered into a room with a fire where people were having food. We passed no servers on the way in and sat and waited and waited. There were wine lists on the table and dessert menus but no food menus. Finally my husband got up and wandered into the bar where... More

I have visited the walnut previously and felt the service was very poor. Previously I had hoped to have lunch at the walnut tree however they were no longer serving food. This was not a problem and not their fault as of course there must be a time that the kitchen closes. Yet they were extremly rude in the way... More

I was extremely concerned to read your report in that none of my staff received any complaint at the time and it is our policy to investigate any uneaten meals returned to the kitchen to establish the problem if any. It is also our policy to serve extra vegetables, at no extra cost, to any customer that asks. I can... More

Love this pub, went there looking for that country pub type atmosphere and was really impressed by their menu (quality of food was amazing) and the friendly staff. Massive recommendation!

After changing tables four times (our choice) we settled for a table in the snug. Food was excellent as was the wine. Though they did bring the main course before the starter, then brought out the same meal reheated once we had finished our starter. Could do better. Attention to detail please.

Once again, went to the Walnut Tree and had an excellent meal. Food good, staff friendly and efficient. The price of the choices on the cottage menu has stayed at £8.95 for a long time. I cannot understand why other places in the area can't get things so good for a reasonable price!!
