MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Walnut Tree is an iconic restaurant with an illustrious past. It was under the leadership of Franco Taruschio for 30 years and now experienced chef Shaun Hill has also broken the two decade mark.

Located in the rolling borderlands of Wales, it's a destination kind of a place, but the loyal band of regulars is testament to the quality of the cooking. The understated bistro-style room suits the food perfectly, as does the relaxed, friendly service.

Shaun's experience and travels inform his cooking, so expect a classical French base with the occasional influence from India or North Africa. Sauces are a strength – ensure you've plenty of buttermilk bread to mop them up – and the flavours just work: this is unfussy, bold, robust cooking using first class ingredients. The fixed price lunch offers good value but for greater choice head for the twice daily changing à la carte. The concise wine list is a connoisseur’s selection; look out for modest mark-ups on some of the finer bottles.
