3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We just returned from a 4 night stay and have mixed feelings, We were treated very well by the friendly, attentive and hard working staff. The room (We stayed in the "Sycamore" ) was clean, very well appointed and had an excellent en~suite bathroom with high quality fittings. The Food was top class and very well presented.
The negatives were more irritating than anything serious.
First, that lovely bathroom, because the room is not connected to the main waste system, ALL waste water from bath, shower, basin and toilet pass through a noisy macerator. Then, the subdued lighting in the bathroom is very tasteful but not ideal for shaving.
The bedroom itself is too small for a chair or sofa so apart from a stool at the dressing table, so we had to sit on the bed to read or watch TV.
The road outside the Walnut Tree is by no means a busy main road but on warm nights, the windows need to be open (No Air con) and the traffic noise is very intrusive, tractors and lorries completely drowning out the TV or radio, to be fair, there is not much the owners can do about this. Again, to be fair we had a decent nights sleep Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday BUT Thursday night was a bit more of a challenge, There was a lot of "bumping and banging" going on between 10 and 11 pm, the noise seemed to be from directly below our room. I got dressed, went downstairs and asked about the disturbance, the staff were very apologetic and said the noise was probably from the kitchen and they sorted the problem immediately. 30 minutes later, a fire alarm sounded, this turned out to be an electrical issue that took some time to resolve.
The next morning, a letter of apology had been delivered to our room and I genuinely felt that the staff had done all they could to rectify an unfortunate couple of events.

Just returned from a 3 day 2 night break at this very nice pub style hotel.

A little out of the way. But! well worth the visit.

Recommended for a short break with No! hesitation

Room Tip: All rooms equally as good as each other. We had the Walnut suite.

We stayed for two nights. We were expecting a village type pub; this one is not a typical village pub. It does seem popular with locals. The staff were friendly.
When we booked in, there were sweet wrappers in the bin in our room, and only half a toilet roll.
We booked a table for food for 8pm. At 9pm we were told that the order had not gone through, but that all three chefs were working on it now. I wished they hadn't bothered. The chips were barely cooked, nor were wife's new potatoes - a very poor start. Booked a table for 9pm the following night. The chips and potatoes both under-cooked, steak quite a poor cut, the pepper sauce was too runny, and the pastry on the vegetable pie was hard. We were offered a "half" by way of compensation.
I must say though that the breakfasts on both mornings were superb.

Room Tip: The Sycamore room is at the front. Sleep is disrupted by noise from road, patrons outside and noisy...

Very friendly, good food, good breakfast and good value for money. The room was very clean, spacious and the bed comfortable. My only minor criticism is that the shower was small but the room and bathroom were both of a very good size.
We stayed here when visiting Stourhead which is a 5 minute drive away.
I would recommend staying here for sure, we were well looked after! Thankyou

Nice friendly welcome greets you here - and it's not a one off either because this has happened every time I have arrived. Excellent food and reasonably priced. Well worth a detour off the A303 for a great lunch or supper.
