Great food and attentive service. Good menu and wine list. However £200 for a meal for two is rather too much for this area.

A famous inn and restaurant since the early 60’s, The Walnut Tree sits two miles east of Abergavenny. It offers proper dining and drinking in an informal setting. There are around 20 tables simply laid. The restaurant seats up to 70 diners and we open from Tuesday to Saturday, lunchtime and evening. The food is an eclectic mix, based on Shaun Hill’s personal taste, paired with sound cooking techniques; rather than a particular country's cuisine. A unifying feature is the core of excellent ingredients.
