Nice old style country(ish) pub, wish there was more like this left, good selection of ales/ lagers etc, not too expensive, good service at the bar.
Nice food too, very tasty and reasonable prices .
One thing though was how quiet the restaurant area was though- I mean its very well layed out, tastefully decorated, space between tables was good too as I dont like being overlooked too much if you know what I mean. I guess as I write at lot of people just cant afford to eat out as much, and thats a shame as this place is really making the effort and deserves more. We were there on a Saturday night 8.30- 10.30 and only us and two other couples that eve.

The sort of pub that looks like it's going to be a good one as you approach, and appearances don't deceive. Sensible split between the restaurant and bar area meaning that the left-hand side (as you enter) retains the atmosphere of a traditional village boozer. Four real ales on, including a fine pint of the locally-ubiquitous Harveys. Bursting at the seams last night during the Yalding Yuletide celebrations, but the staff were making a good effort at getting everybody served reasonable quickly.

Restaurant layout very good, with tables not too close together. Starters were mushrooms and goats cheese (good) and chicken liver pate (OK but a little dry). Main courses taken were scallops (excellent), pheasant (excellent), pasta (OK but could have used more sauce as it was a little dry) and fish pie. Wine - NZ pinot noir - was excellent, and good value t 19.50. Will definitely go again. Treacle pudding was outstanding.

Until a few years ago, Yalding had 5 pubs. Now it's down to 3, and of those The Walnut Tree is by some margin the best. It starts with the advantage of being a very attractive old building, but that alone's never going to make a decent pub, and The Walnut Tree's certainly that. Normally an interesting choice of cask beers, usually in pretty fair nick. Good food -cooked on the premises, and excellent value (especially if you're an OAP; the lunchtime bargains are amazing.
It can get pretty crowded , but basically it's a genuine locals' pub, and a pretty good one.
