Took some visitors from the south to the Walnut Tree and they were knocked over by the friendly welcome and efficient service which we have become accustomed to over the years. Food was mint. Well done everybody. Elaine and Henry

I have been today with a friend and we were assured that they were serving food until 9pm. When we arrived there was obviously a child's party going on and we had not been told about it. The bar was deserted and others had been waiting far longer than we had. After a search we found someone to get some... More

Lovely pub, but unfortunately we called in Sunday and they had finished serving meals at 3 so didn't get to eat there, plenty of parking, lovely staff etc, but no food Sunday evening.

The seafood starter was just right and my husband said his fish and chips were really, really good. We have contacts in Heworth and will... More

Decided to go here last minute for dinner as it was pouring with rain and the pub was only a few minutes away from our Hotel. It was an excellent decision too! A lovely little pub with amazing food and friendly staff . Ended up staying a couple of hours for drinks too

The restaurant area was also very comfortable with nice views of the garden. The food itself was superb and the service was fantastic. Thank you Emma and... More

However, after having a drink on the Tuesday we sampled the menu on both Wednesday and Thursday night and were not disappointed. The chef Barry produces wonderful... More
