We had a good little late lunch here - the brie with mixed salad each and shared the extra side of fries. Nothing remarkable but gratefully received after a stressful shopping trip to buy bedroom furniture. Our minds were spinning so it was good to sit down, have a quiet drink, good food and service from the landlord who was... More

Pub is run down and in need of a good clean. Man behind the bar (landlord I think) was just so rude and looked like he didn't want to be there. Will not be returning.

Visited The Walnut tree with my family a few weeks ago and was appalled by the behaviour of the staff. The landlord appeared to be running a social club with his regulars swearing and shouting disgusting, offensive jokes, comments and slurs before allowing and even laughing at his regulars making inappropriate comments to me as I walked past to the...

The chips are fantastic! So tasty! A really nice side salad too. Good service, slightly cold sat in the conservatory but apart from that very impressed! :)

So it was lovely not having to double check anything with the waiting staff, they knew our choices & checked when we wanted to... More

I visited here this Thursday for lunch and drinks afterwards and was impressed by the building and beer garden. The food was delightful and I would eat here again, however, when paying my bill the member of staff behind the bar failed to acknowledge me as she was on her mobile phone.

Had a mid week meal here whilst staying at Ascot House Guest House. I had chicken kiev and my husband had the cod. We were pleasantly surprised by the food as the pub looked like it could do with a refurb. They were very good at tweaking the menu for us eg chips instead of new potatoes. We would go... More

Good Sunday lunch but could have done with more vegetables, asked the waitress for more but didn't bring any. Bit slow at the bar had to wait a good 10 mins to be served our drinks. Food was good and would go back.

We have had some very enjoyable meals here accompanied by good beers. Great staff, good car parking and only a short drive from the center.
