We stayed at The Walnut Tree on New Years Eve for the 2nd year running and we go on a regular basis throughout the year to eat, it was as always really good!

Great staff + great food + great entertainment = great night!

This surely has to be a must for the traveller or just an evening meal.
Family meal on Christmas Eve was stunning. Excellent chefs, staff and the management.
Cannot fault it. Special 3 course Sunday roast at a very reasonable price.
Check overnight stays and prices. Also 2 minutes from M5 junction No24.

Room Tip: Not stayed recently but from memory all rooms ok

Well I came to stay at the Walnut Tree by chance because the Holiday Inn I had booked had failed me (see my review of that hotel), it turned out the Holiday Inn did me and my colleague a great favour by relocating us to the Walnut Tree.

This hotel is fabulous - we moved from a state of the art corporate hotel, clean & modern but soulless to this place - a lovely example of a quality hotel with it's own identity and character, with a bar stocking fine hand pulled ales rather than major chain beers.

So, the rooms - large, comfortable, flawlessly clean, yes not new, but certainly still in fine condition. The beds were very comfortable, tea & coffee making with biscuits too, trouser press and iron, and nice decor you'd have to be very picky indeed to find fault - I found nothing to fault.

Communal areas including a pool table were all lovely areas with great furnishings and pleasure to be in, as was the bar and restaurant, which I might say are well worth visiting even if not staying. The bar served hand pulled real ales that were excellent, and the food in the restaurant was probably the highest quality you could hope for outside of a Michelin starred restaurant.

If you read my other reviews you'll see I rate the staff an important part of the overall experience, and the staff at the Walnut didn't disappoint, I expect high levels of service in US hotels, but it's often not something we do well in the UK. They DO do it well here, all the staff were brilliant - really friendly and exceedingly helpful - from the moment we stepped in the place to checking out.

We were due to go back to the Holiday Inn express for our second night in the area, but within 5 minutes of arrival we had made arrangements to stay here instead, a much more enjoyable experience, and we'll be staying here as first choice next time we're in the area!

Psst - it was also cheaper than the Holiday Inn ;)

We stayed at the Walnut Tree for one night as we were attending a wedding nearby. Our room was very clean with a king size bed and a large shower room. The bar had a welcoming log fire and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We came home wishing we had stayed longer and will certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in this area.

As per all the previous reviews this month, and indeed last, no fault could be found.

We stayed at the Hotel for the night in order to be able to enjoy the North Petherton Carnival without the necessity to get into the car thereafter to drive home.

From the moment of our arrival yesterday afternoon, until our departure today, everything was just perfect. The Reception Staff were extremely helpful, the room beautifully clean, spacious, luxurious and very comfortable.

Enjoyed a drink at the Bar where there was an open fire which added to the ambience of the Hotel. No waiting, no hassle and very relaxing.

The evening meal - a 'Carnival Menu' - was thoroughly enjoyable and all the Restaurant Staff apparently thoroughly committed to their job of keeping the 'Guest' happy, providing impecable service throughout the course of the meal.

An 'amazing' breakfast this morning! Absolutely everything, - even down to the Black Pudding -which I haven't tasted in years, beautifully cooked, and served with so much choice too!

A wonderful evening with the Carnival, and a splendid stay in an excellent Hotel which I would be delighted to recommend.

We booked in to the walnut tree a few weeks ago as we were going to a friends party in the village. Very good website and easy to book on line. Friendly welcome, beautiful room, clean and smart. Spacious bathroom with huge shower. Delicious breakfast with excellent service. Would love th stay again for longer.

Room Tip: Our standard room was fine. I think there were more expensive ones. We had number 16 and I think it...

My wife and I have just enjoyed a wonderful meal in The Lemon Tree Restaurant at The Walnut Tree Hotel in North Petherton. I had the Pan Fried Breast of Duck and my husband had the Grilled Plaice with Mussels & Clams.

Our meals were cooked to perfection (our compliments to the chef) and the staff, as always, were attentive and friendly. We will be back again soon to try more of the same.
