Great food, service and value. Always friendly and welcoming staff. Locally sourced food, just great for all ages and a short walk from home, what more could you ask from a local pub and eatery? Lovely and relaxing place to be. Never had a bad experience here. Lots of gluten free meals too, which a lot of places in the centre of York do not even offer.

Went to The Walnut Tree for an evening meal with the family on a Saturday night. Truly excellent service. A good choice of decent, reasonably priced food on the menu, which came quickly, was hot, had very large portions and was well cooked by the chef. Good pies and several vegetarian options were available. The pub had a nice conservatory for diners which over looked a large beer garden. Only negative was that the Gents toilets needed a refresh and could have been cleaner.

We had two dinners at this establishment last spring. It had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The menu had a very good range of reasonably priced items. The food we had on each night was delicious. The staff were very conscientious and friendly which is a very hard combination to find. Good food, good prices, good service - what more could be required?

We stayed here after completing day 2 of the way of the roses - we booked a table a few days before, we were served promptly and the and the waitress was very polite. The decor is a little dated yes but hey who cares when the food is so delicious ! It is an old country pub what would you expect....I had the steak and ale pie which is the nicest I have ever had, very light pastry which melted in your mouth! Lovely evening and would recommend
