I have visited the Walnut restaurant for breakfast before, with a client and with my mother. Both times the breakfast was well presented, and well cooked so I felt confident recommending it for a special event. Last Friday night we had a private dining room booked for an elopement. They were the only venue in town happy to accommodate varying... More

Really good wine, lovely food. Entree and main perfect. The chef even came out to see how it was. My duck was so good, great sauce and duck cooked very nicely. Old fashioned styling but still welcoming and not too stuffy. Would love to come back. Pretty pricey. Rum baba was flamed at my table, very theatric and fun!

What a great restuarant. Fantastic service, menu and food. We were tremendously impressed as were all the other diners we heard complimenting the staff. Go for the Scallops in the Entree!

Great atmosphere, food and service. Thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meal of plump juicy prawn Caesar salad and fresh lightly battered fish and chips. Enjoyed a nice glass of wine to top it off.

Joined the walnut room with colleague. The decor is elegant and romantic with Egyptian chandeliers. The service from rudy was very attentive and prompt. The eye fillet just melted in my mouth. I would definitely recommend it.

We came to this restaurant for the set menu on New Year's Eve. The staff, and particularly our waiter, were anxious to please and attentive. The food was what you would expect in a high-end restaurant on a special occasion - imaginative and provocative with delightful surprises in every fine detail.
