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

It was our first Sunday lunchtime roast post lockdown as we were apprehensive regarding dining arrangements. We needn't have worried as The Walnut Tree had thought of every precaution necessary. The food was great and the staff were attentive and very welcoming. We were given a 25% off voucher for a return visit so we will definitely return this autumn.

Good beer. Reasonable choice of wine and the prices were not too high. We enjoyed both our starters and main course especially the home made pie. The service was good and very friendly. Overall, enjoyable and we will be returning.

Great food, price was good (especially as we had a 25% off voucher). Staff friendly and welcoming. Obviously they were busy with having to do table service only but wasn't really kept waiting at all. Lovely evening.

Freezing cold and very noisy. It was our 10th wedding Anniversary. Only stayed an hour because it was freezing. Dishes were tasty but small and not good value . No garnish to burger - just burger bun and tiny portion of chips. Hubby had belly pork - not worth £15.

Six of us had two courses, two bottles of wine and a few drinks from the bar. Total cost was £134, thanks to 25% off on the September offer.
Food was delicious and cooked extremely well. Service a little slow, but I believe the staff were all new and still learning, so not complaining.
We all had a lovely evening.

Disappointing- long wait for drinks - starter was good . But roast dinner was cold was also told pigs in blankets not available as sold out - but customers who had come after us - got served them.

The roast potatoes were hard and cold as were the roasted veg - no one came to ask if food was ok!
Paid £90 which was not worth the price- even tried charging for the pigs in blankets - had to request refund.
How hard can it be !!

Staff were very helpful and polite. Placed out order after 45 mins I asked if they have forgotten about us. They said the kitchen was busy..I personally think they forgotten us. They did give us a bottle of wine wine. It’s a real shame as my son is moving into the area and we had high hopes Never mind :(

Had a lovely time and pleased to see there was sanitizer inside arrival but was concerned that staff were not wearing visors and the pub were using reusable menus. Made me feel a little unsafe. Otherwise everything was lovely.

Given the current covid restrictions it’s probably unfair to put anything other than 5 stars. Sunday roast was nice, service was pretty good and generally all good. Not quiet outstanding but very good

Honoured the surf and turf offer that was great, but only watercress as salad and meals very salty with fish in very fatty batter
Eton mess only one piece of banana no meringue and too creamy
Nice venue and staff very quiet and welcoming would return to give another chance as it was nice otherwise

Sat outside in patio area, very nice. Waiting staff very efficient and regularly checked if we needed anything and were very polite and friendly. Food was good standard and very tasty, portion size fair. Cost wise on eat out to help out deal was fair

Menu was fairly limited and they had already sold out of sirloin steak (surely a pub food staple) by 7.30pm. We ordered cod and chips which, to be fair, was good but despite our food arriving almost too quickly and being asked what we wanted for dessert when our plates were cleared, we did not see a waiter/waitress all evening. No-one came back to take our dessert order so we went without, we sat with empty drinks glasses and then had to stop a waiter to order coffee which was watery and weak. The meal was good value for money but only because we ate on the ‘Eat Out Scheme’ - not deliberate on our part as were out for our wedding anniversary and would have paid full price. We have eaten at the Walnut Tree many times before but it lacked the warm, cosy intimacy of previous years (maybe due to social distancing) The restaurant seemed quite bare and sadly lacking in decor, character and atmosphere.

Although everyone was very friendly, our arrival drinks got forgotten & one of my friends received a different pie to what she ordered. Luckily it was still tasty. Fish & chips were lovely.

The coffees were luke warm & not very nice. We have eaten there before & remembered that the coffee was bad that time. They need to give this some attention.

It is in a good location for us as it’s 1/2 way but would not choose to eat there otherwise.
