We have had a few family evening at the Walnut room. The service is polite and attentive. and the food is good and well priced. The venue is charming and old world and the private rooms perfect for the larger groups. The Crepe Suzette is a real treat!

Splendid meals for a lovely family reunion. Our waiter, Allen, was absolutely wonderful. Meals were well priced and a reasonable size.

Listed as a fine dining restaurant, the restaurant itself is very nice, and when we poked our head in early in the day was shown around by very nice staff member. Not sure about the fine dining though, and have done a few. Meals were pleasant, but certainly not the wow factor, and service was very good. Lamb wellington was... More

My wife and I have eaten in many hotel restaurants, but nothing comes close to this. I have never wanted to lick the plate as much as I did tonight. If not for my wife, I may well have done just that. Exceptional food and service in a beautiful period restaurant that is classic in every sense of the word.... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed an evening away and enjoyed the most beautiful dinner in the restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant to both locals and those from out of town as a lovely dining experience. The food was beautiful and the service excellent.

Amazing experience at the walnut restaurant. My partner and I stayed in house in the honeymoon suite over the weekend and experienced some of the best service from the team. During a luxurious afternoon in the exquisite executive suites enjoying the grand views across the park, we ordered an amazing cheese platter to our room. After copious quantities of cheese... More

staying in the hotel so popped down the the Walnut Restaurant for breakfast and dinner over a few days. The service was always good and quick but the dinner menu was rather uninspiring and a bit traditional but VERY tasty. I expect they would do special events well as they do have a high attention to detail. Every time we... More

We were out celebrating an early Mothers Day at the Walnut Room. The decor is lovely and we had a nice table by the window. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very good and I noticed that everyone went to the effort of dressing up, something you do not see anymore in restaurants. The food was delicious and although we...
