Good varied menu, food was great and staff polite and helpful. Would recommend booking at busy times, but plenty of tables available in the garden.

Went for Sunday lunch while on holiday. There are no printed menus, just a big blackboard with loads of choices. This meant a crowd of people round it at once - we gave up and just ordered the Sunday roast. This (roast beef) was delicious - good quality meat and plenty of it, 'proper' Yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes. The... More

Dinner, Thursday evening. Pretty busy with the Goodwood Revival. Reception very organised, order your meals as you arrive. We'd booked, but they were also able to accommodate those arriving on spec, with a short wait. Barmaid was super quick. Food hot, plentiful, enjoyable, service efficient although we didn't feel hurried. Liked the décor, the meal was not expensive, would go... More

Perfect steak and chicken. Wonderfully presented and a big bowl of veg with every main course which was unexpected. Good value and wonderful food

Really good food, spacious, big garden and parking... average prices, nice atmosphere. Good dining place for families but also for parties, business lunches or dinners... Two big dining areas and separate bar area. During Christmas all tables are nicely decorated. It it is weekend I would rather book a table, they might be very busy. Service is very nice.

This was our third visit to The Walnut Tree as we are regularly in the area because we own a Church Farm caravan. However it will be our last. We visited at lunchtime on Sunday 31 August and sat outside as the weather was pleasant and we had our Labrador with us. Having waited for over thirty minutes for our... More

Have been a regular at the Walnut Tree for many years and have always had great meals and service. Hired it out for my Mums 70th Birthday. Once again excellent service and quality of food, especially as the party size was so big. Would highly recommend.

We visited on a very wet Bank Holiday Monday. The pub was very busy and it was gone 2pm but despite this we were found a table. Considering how busy the restaurant and pub were the service was pretty good and the food came up very quickly. We ordered some starters - garlic bread which was very delicious and some... More
