Pop in, get comfy and have a drink

The Bar - Traditional hospitality with a sophisticated twist.

Welcome to the vibrant and stylish heart of the Walnut Tree Inn! Having just undergone a major redesign and refurbishment, as part of a wider programme of improvements to the main customer spaces across the ground floor, we invite you to come and experience the quiet sophistication and retro elegance of our new main bar.

Drawing on the themes of the railway and mercantile heritage that were so important in first establishing our hotel in the nineteenth century, we have created a modern space with a unique atmosphere in which to relax, meet friends, enjoy a drink, or have a bite to eat. With our popular ‘Brewery of the Month’ promotion for real ale enthusiasts and regular tasting events to highlight our extensive range of wines available by the glass, there’s always a good reason to pop in for an hour or two.

Mid-week Offers

By contrast, and with a hint of the Mediterranean in a tasteful, courtyard setting, why not enjoy the great outdoors courtesy of our spacious, beer garden. With an enclosed, open air terrace and heaters to ward off chilly nights or winter days, here is a tranquil space in which to enjoy the best of British weather! It also provides a comfortable, environment for our customers who wish to smoke.

From local real ales, to international lagers, together with extensive selections of carefully selected premium spirits and a range of wines from around the world, we’re proud to offer traditional pub hospitality with sophisticated twist.
