Used this restaurant while on holiday in the area, excellent food and service despite being extremely busy. Would recommend the lemon tart it was delicious. We were told no need to book but very glad we did.

Visited the Walnut on a recent visit to the goodwood FOS. So good we returned the following evening. Great menu choice on boards in bar area and food was first class on both evenings. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Certainly will return on future trips to the area.
