Mrs E and I have been meaning to visit the Walnut Tree ever since reading Elizabeth David's enthusiastic comments on it. At last, 30 years or so on and 2 or 3 chefs later, we managed it to mark our 40th anniversary and it did...More

Lunchtime is the time to go and have a great meal, the evenings become too overcrowded nowadays. The staff are fantastic and very helpful.

We first ate Shaun's food almost 30 years ago when he was head chef at Gidleigh Park. His food was exceptional for the time, so how well does it stand up in 2017? Well, a good plate of food (as they call it on Masterchef)...More

Very enjoyable dinner with friends, a bit cramped, highlights were the veal shortbreads and scallop soup for starters, lamb and rabbit for mains. Cheese amazingly good. American house red wine not so good, portuguese rioja-style red was better. Staff were friendly and mostly helpful, it...More

Located in an old inn, the building has an unfussy decor with some local artists work on the walls. We were given the choice of having a drink at the small bar or to go straight to our table, we took the latter and was...More
