Food was extremely good. Both mine and my friends meals were all of the same quality. We weren't going to have pudding but after the main I was persuaded as it was so good! Portion sizes were average but I think the quality and taste were well above average. Happy to pay a little extra here and there for something nice. I felt Pudding was a little steep at £6.50 but again it was delicious!!! Will definitely be going back!!!

Great pub, serving staff were very attentive and helped my wife with menu choices (celiac). Very unfortunate as the head chef was sick and agency had to step in. We had to wait

Lovely food polite staff would be nice if they had a wider range of non alcoholic beverages, these so many gins and botanical drinks out there it would be good to include in range x

Service was attentive, probably a little too attentive during our main course. Pudding took 30 minutes which was unexpected. Overall it was ok. We will give it another go in a few months to see if it has improved.

Good Sunday roast for the price. The Yorkshire Puddings were burnt and not edible and the roast potatoes were rubbery. But great gravey and the roast chicken was good. I would go back.

The food was amazing but the service was really really slow. We booked a table for a specific time but when we arrived we was told to go outside and wait for a table to become available as “it’s a bit of a free for all”. Once seated we waited 30 minutes for drinks and then another 30 for the menu and then food took an hour to come out. I would go back again but maybe when everything had a bit more structure and it’s not freezing cold.

The service was pretty quick and very friendly. It was a little cold as it was outside dining due to the pandemic, so not the restaurant’s fault at all. The food was really tasty and were large portions, definitely no complaints from me or my friend. We would recommend The Walnut Tree to anyone 🙂

Wasnt given food menus on arrival and took a while to receive, however once we ordered and the food turned up it was incredible! No staff to be seen when we were ready for the bill so had to wait until somebody came out but apart from that everything was fab, would definitely recommend and would visit again!

Lovely meal in the garden at the back of the pub. service was good, menu was varied and food was delicious. We sat in a table of 4 with 3 of the table choosing chicken and the other steak and we all enjoyed our meal, drinks were also good and coffee at the end. The bill was £112 which I feel was reasonable to include 4 main courses, drinks and coffee.

I attending on Saturday and it took an hour for our drinks to come out and 1.5 hours for the food (3 mains). The staff were very apologetic but there were a lot of waiters and not a huge amount of customers.
I also attended on Sunday just for drinks - the first round came out in ten minutes and the second took half an hour.
It is a shame because the food and drinks are really nice here but I won’t be coming again due to how long you have to wait. There needs to be some better organisation within the team - it shouldn’t take an hour to serve three drinks.

Waited over 3 hours for the food, the. Just the starter comes out 3 hours later.. attitude of staff members wernt apologetic at all. Took on to much and the restaurant customers suffered.
Manager wasn’t to bothered about loosing customers either.
3 very hungry and ratty children after a visit here.

For our first date night out of the lockdown we went to the Walnut Tree - and what a place for it! The food was unbelievable and the service was grand.

Bit cold so bring a blanket if it’s under 10 degrees outside haha!

A cosy pub, great menu and good food, the only thing that was lacking was the old gin bottle on the table with some greenery stuffed in it! It looked rather underwhelming
