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!

Great village pub with fantastic food

Great atmosphere in the cosy heated terrace

This is a little gem

Service good If a little a
Slow, but good food should not be rushed so was happy to wait. Proves everything is prepped and cooked fresh

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

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.
