Called in for drinks only recently. Just had a refit and it really has benefitted the place. Quite large inside and very popular for good value pub food. Outside seating area at the front and a large grassed area beer garden to the side. I think The Walkford must offer the best value drinks for miles around.

Visited recently and the service has improved. At last managers who speak to customers. The food can be hit and miss . Sunday though seems to be good . Menu has burgers, steak and fish and chips dishes . They do have special days and food offers during the week . Prices are not to expensive

Nine of us visited and we were all really pleased with our meals. It's a new menu, and everything we had was delicious. We will return next time we are in the area.

We have been regulars at this pub twenty years and have recommended lots of people over the years but since new managers have taken over we will not go again. The waitresses are great and always friendly but the managers are known by the regulars as The Glums!! They are not welcoming at all and can hardly be bothered to... More

We hire the skittle alley every year which has received a much improved revamp, along with the evening menu. A good choice of food which was very good, all the different dishes arriving hot and together which was not easy given there were nearly 30 of us. Excellent value for money. Surprising the pub was so quiet on a Saturday... More

This is an unpretentious eating place in a busy pub. The food was well cooked and good value. We have been several times.

Really has gone down hill over the last year. Service is very slow once food has been ordered. Tables left dirty for a long time - this was on a mid-week lunch time as well so hardly peak operating hours
