We’ll have many happy memories and beautiful photos for years to come.

We just wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for all your input for our wedding day. It was an amazing day and everything was so perfect. We have received many compliments on the wedding breakfast and BBQ and how efficient and delightful all the staff were.
It was truly a memorable day. You most certainly went above and beyond what we hoped for. We will certainly be recommending anyone getting married to consider having The Walnut Tree as their venue.
Denise and Nigel
This place is lovely! We just had our wedding reception on Saturday 10th of September. Staff all friendly. Bex wedding planner is very friendly, efficient and organised. It’s in a lovely location and hotel is decorated nicely and clean throughout. Very pleased. Thank you and it will now always hold a special place in our hearts.
Suzy and Martin
We booked our daughter’s wedding here and from start to finish the whole day was absolutely superb. The organiser, Bex was brilliant. She had the day planned out to perfection and exactly as my daughter wanted it.
From the arrival of the registrar and the wedding ceremony itself to the wedding breakfast for 30 (with 10 children) and then to the evening entertainment and a barbecue for 70, the whole event ran like clockwork.
This day had to be special for us for so many reasons. I’m pleased to say that the Walnut Tree and its staff made it VERY special.
Hospitality was lovely, the food was perfection, the rooms great, overall this was an amazing weekend and the perfect place for our son and new daughter in laws wedding, could not fault a single thing.
I would recommend this place and if possible would give a higher star rating, again AMAZING.
Thanks so much to The Walnut Tree team
Bex is completely amazing and a huge credit to The Walnut Tree! Our wedding on Thursday was just amazing and the whole time Bex and her team were so attentive! We honestly had the most amazing day and massive credit to Chef! Everyone kept commenting on how amazing the food was! We will be back next year for dinner and a stay over for our anniversary!

May we especially thank the young ladies who served us, who were efficient, polite and very pleasant throughout. So, our sincere thanks to all concerned, and we look forward to seeing you again on September 30th, when our daughter Catherine will be celebrating her Wedding.

Hi Donald, Caroline and all of the team,
Roger and I would like to express our thanks to you all for a wonderfully managed wedding on Saturday. Everything that you promised us happened and I think we just about managed to keep our side of the bargain and kept more or less to time. Top marks to all the waitresses and to the bar staff – they were polite, efficient and service was prompt at the bar etc, excellent. Once again, congratulations to your chef on a very nice meal. We all understand it is necessary with larger numbers to keep things as simple as you can but we felt that the lamb and mash combination made a very pleasant change to the usual chicken and roast potato mix that most get offered at weddings. Fiona and Chris opted to go for a smaller venue- a good choice I think, much more personal and I know that their guests felt that the whole place was very homely. We all had a great day and a fabulous party in the evening. Once again, our thanks to you all.
Kindest regards, Dot and Roger Cheshire.
If stars are to be awarded for good food and hospitality they would shine brightly over the Walnut Tree this Christmas. Many thanks from all that came from the Bakers Arms last night 6th December. A special thank you to your staff that looked after us well. “We will be back”.
This card is just to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at The Walnut Tree Inn. You have a lovely property, the food (breakfast and bar menu) was excellent and your staff are a real credit to you. We found them all to be polite, helpful and friendly and we would not hesitate recommending your hotel and hospitality.
Kind regards, Paul and Ginny.
Thank you very much for helping us organise our wedding reception. The service we received from you was excellent. The venue was fantastic and the disco was just what we wanted. The food was lovely and the soup was just what was required on a cold day.
Thank you once again, Sherilyn Gardner.
To Caroline and the staff of The Walnut Tree Inn,
We both thank you so much for your diligence, professionalism and all round great person!!

Just to say thank you so much to you and your staff for the lovely evening we had at The Walnut Tree. The pig roast was delicious and folk from the party are planning to use the idea for theor own family celebrations. We had dinner in the bar on our actual anniversary and it will become a regular venue when we have an evening out in future so The Walnut Tree has proved a ‘find’.
Best regards, Cathie McCarthy.

Just a quick message to say what a nice overnight stay we had at The Walnut Tree in Sat 14/12/13. Please give your staff a well deserved pat on the back as they provided us with excellent and friendly service which I find is rather lacking at some places today. I would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel to others as it was very clean and well presented. Well done again and I look forward to staying with you in the future.
Kind regards, Mark.

Many thanks again for your hospitality, Mark.
A belated thanks to all at The Walnut Tree that made the Ratliffe family from Canada’s stay there the epitome of English hospitality. This generation of Ratliffes, part of the old Northampton brewing dynasty, were making their first visit to their ancestral home as guests of Phipps NBC. The warm welcome, the sunshine soaked rolling countryside and the history, all combined to show them our area at its best.
Dear Caroline and all at The Walnut Tree,
Thank you so much for helping make our special day so wonderful. We both had a fantastic time and everything from the food to the organisation to the fabulous entertainment was just perfect!
With love from Tessa and Dermot.

Thank you very much for your exceptional organisation and making our wedding breakfast and reception go so smoothly. Everyone had a great time. The food was amazing.

All the best, Andy and Elaine Allen.
