If you are after a fine dinning restaurant in a beautiful environment then this is the place. Try there 6 course degustation menu. We did and it was by far the best and tastiest menu we ever had. Everything was cooked to perfection and presented in a nice way.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Walnut Restaurant and had the most wonderful degustation meal. The service was superb and Rudy the maitre'd was an excellent host. The wine matching to the meal was perfect. Terrific night - thanks to Rudy and the Walnut Restaurant

Dear Guest, The Royal on the Park Hotel has just completed its long-awaited renovation. The Lounge Bar now has a floor-to-ceiling bookcase that includes objects d'art and unfettered access to the Walnut Restaurant. The sleek and cosy fireplace is housed under the original 1969 archway (discovered unexpectedly!) that now affords a peek into the Walnut Restaurant through smoked glass panels.... More

As well as having a an excellent à la carte menu the Walnut also offers a choice of three quite different and delectable degustation menus, all of which periodically change. Recently, a new choice has been added, a special degustation menu being trialled on Saturday nights which outdoes the regular degustation menus for taste, course mixture and value. Each special...
