A hidden gem

We have eaten many times at the Walnut Tree and it is just like being at home. The food is nicely presented, cooked just as you like it and the portions would satisfy even the biggest appetite. Long may it be a hidden gem

Came here for Saturday lunch. Staff were friendly and helpful, nice seating area away from the bar. Lovely outside space great for when the weather is better. The steak pie was lovely and good chips. The prawn and salmon salad was also good. Will definitely go again. Food and service both very good.

We choose the '2 Course with dessert only' meal of Steak and Ale pie with chips followed by Apple Crumble and Custard, excellent it was at only £8.45 its a very good deal too. Surrounding in the dining room are bright clean and airy, service polite and efficient. Plenty of off road parking. Recommended. Lat/Long: N53.96711° W1.05510°

We had just had a full day doing the touristy thing in York. We were staying in Heworth at a B&B and stumbled across this pub whilst looking for somewhere to eat close by. It looked very busy with a party going on but luckily we met with the pub landlord on the way in and he could not have... More

June when we last visited and sobbed about the sticky toffee pudding. This time, having booked earlier in the week, without asking, the pudding was on the menu with MY name on it. Well I could hardly wait to finish Sunday lunch,(which of course was the best) to sample it. Full marks to Emma and Sue in providing such a... More

We chose to visit The Walnut Tree as we were unable to book a table at some recommended city centre restaurants, and we were very glad that we did. We were given a very warm welcome by Sue the chef. I chose from the main menu and my wife from the specials. Despite there being a large private party going... More

Fish, chips and mushy peas is a great English standard and Friday night is fish night at this great pub. When we had visitors who could not make the Friday night we phoned to ask if the traditionl beer battered fish would be on the menu on the Saturday. Despite the fact that the place was very busy with 2... More

As always a super lunch and the kids enjoyed playing outside. They are so friendly and accommodating. Only wish they served food earlier on an evening and we would be here more often. They start serving at 6 but this can be late for the kids especially after a busy day.
