Went to the Walnut Tree with my family and I can honestly say it has been the worst meal out that I have ever had. We did not get as far as eating the main courses we had ordered as one of the starters had a hair in it. We politely complained and it was sent back to the kitchen.... More

On investigation it was found that there was NO HAIR in the food, rather a sliver of mushroom mistaken for a hair. This was obviously repeated in the replacement meal, but the staff were unaware of the second complaint. We would ask this review to be removed and there was no basis for the complaint. More

Good country pub, always busy. Great cottage menu for £9.95 for a main. Sunday lunch is £11.95, £15.95 or£18.95 for 1, 2 or 3 courses. Lots of exposed beams, good parking, outside seating. Highly recommended.

There was no waitress service to take orders as they were taken in the entrance off a blackboard. This led to queues and on a cold day most people would of gone elsewhere. The sea bass was superb and the chips were the best I have had - crisp and golden on the outside, soft inside - and not a... More

This is the third time I have been th the Walnut Tree recently the last two times whilst the food has been good the service both times has been very slow indeed and a long wait between courses. This last time too the staff were a little Aloof - a smile goes a long way. The pub was very busy... More

Stumbled upon this pub, popped in for drinks tried the Otter Ale very nice, very friendly, nice atmosphere, clean, considered eating - prices on the menu board seemed a little high for us so did not eat, did not see any food being served so cannot comment on value.

A regular haunt for locals and more distant members of the Chichester Camera Club (originally from 1893). On this occasion 8 of us needed a break from a day's deliberations to choose images to represent our club in various competitions throughout the year. We weren't due to be at the Walnut, but more on that later ... I went for... More

We had a table booked at a pub close to The Walnut Tree, but were badly let down by them. Feeling hungry, cross, and slightly dejected, we decided to stop at the next pub/restaurant we came to. After only a couple of miles we spotted the Walnut Tree. The car park was full, and all the tables except one were... More

Visited here again it been a few months since my last visit. And again great service. I had the slow roasted Pork Belly. Which was cooked to perfection and very tasty. My wife had the Lamb shoulder and it was huge. I definitely had food envy! But sad time after speaking to the manager Ryan he told me he is... More
