On arrival we were welcomed to the cosy bar area by friendly staff and took a seat by the open fire to make our choices from the menu. As I enjoy fish I chose the monkfish for a starter followed by the dover sole. Both dishes were beautifully cooked and the excellent quality of the ingredients shone through, although I... More

Visited here with my husband in December '14. Cannot rave enough about it. My husband is a coeliac, absolutely no problem for the incredibly knowledgeable staff at the Walnut Tree. Amazing food, lovely wine and a great meal out.

We have come to expect very high standards here and yet again we had an excellent meal. One of our friends said his pheasant and chestnut [I think] soup was wonderful which he followed with delicious Dover Sole. My husband had the Kerala Curry to start. He has had this before and immediately chose it again as it is so... More

Really good food, well presented and served, though limited choice for evening meals for larger groups. External toilets not ideal in winter or wet weather, but generally to be recommended!

I was in Abergavenny picking my son up from the train station and we called in for lunch, it was on spec and there were five of us In total. As I expected the Walnut Tree was busy for lunch, we were offered a table in the bar and it was ok, a bit crammed in the corner next to... More

Went to the Walnut Tree again last week and had the most superb food - Monkfish, served on a bed of tomatoes and onions, followed by Veal Sweetbreads - the most divine we've ever eaten anywhere with a superb range of vegetables to complement the dish and roast partridge. Excellent wines. Rather rustic but if you're interested in sensational food,... More

A few of the past reviewers have mentioned issues getting a table, booking early is essential for the Walnut Tree! We booked two months before a Saturday evening visit and even then we offered only three times for a table, one very early, one very late and 8.30pm. We arrived at 8 as the geographic location is such that you... More

Went to The Walnut Tree for my fiancées 30th and I'm happy to report it was well worth the trip. First thing to note is the food is cooked and presented to absolute perfection, with the taste combinations being truly top notch. From the first bite to the last you could really appreciate why The Walnut Tree has the Michelin... More

My husband and I came here for lunch and were very much looking forward to it, given that the chef here is very accomplished. Our reservation was quite early in terms of the lunchtime service and we arrived at midday for a 12.30pm table. We were met on arrival into the bar by somewhat 'haughty' staff who made us feel...
