Our Tripadvisor Reviews

Dont just take our word for it, here are some of our reviews

During a nostalgic trip around parts of Kent, we decided to pop into The Walnut Tree for lunch. What a great choice. The pub was very nice, we received a warm welcome, were spoilt for choice re lunch menu and the food we enjoyed (Lambs liver / Rare Breed gammon) was delicious. Nice atmosphere, great food , great service and reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning.

We came for lunch and had oysters and various main meals …. The best oysters we have ever eaten and the main meals you could tell had all been made fresh from scratch and the added bonus of locally sourced meats and veg The staff where extremely helpful and nothing was too much bother and the landlord Sean a great host with a huge character … We would recommend this village pub to anyone it has a real great feel of village life supported by fresh amazing food and a great team to deliver an excellent dining experience We can’t wait to return



This is my son and Daughter-in-Law’s local pub so, we have eaten there on more than one occasion and, have never been disappointed by the great quality of he food. Very pleasant service and comfortable seating. Their menu is probably slightly more sophisticated than the average ” Pub Grub” but well worth spending the little extra.



Social group of 20 people had dinner here (pre-booked) which was most enjoyable with excellent food and service. This is a charming old pub/restaurant with a good selection of draught beers and a very good and varied menu and food superbly cooked and presented and served by friendly staff. I am happy to recommend this establishment, and would certainly advise booking for the restaurant.



Stopped on the off chance and made very welcome. Excellent service, fantastic food. Will definitely be back with friends and family.

I wrote a review of The Walnut Tree last week when I was in the UK but I’m not sure it has been published. Now back at home in Normandy, France I wish to confirm my submission. My wife and I plus my sister-in-law were on our way to Maidstone from Bexhill-on-Sea and happened upon The Walnut Tree in Yalding. Foodwise, it was like arriving in Heaven. Staffwise very much the same. We all ordered the Luxury Seafood Pot. What we were given exceeded all expectations by a long way. It was beautiful, it was tasty, it was generously proportioned and a treat to consume! The Chef, Sean appeared at the bar and I asked if it was he who cooked our food. My wife and I have been privileged to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world over many, many years and this man’s food was right up there with the best. Well done Sean. Vivienne and I wish you well as you take over.
