“soft play is a danger zone”

Written on: 17/11/2014 by huLake458 (1 review written)

I will never come back to this establishment again. My 2 year old son was ganged up on by older boys, kicked and had his trousers and socks taken off. By the time I got up there the kids had scattered. We both were in a right state. What children do that to other children? I complained and the staff were sympathetic but they do not have cctv in that area so couldn't do anything. I'm mortified. But will never take my eyes of my boys again and never attend this soft play area… Read Full Review

Very disappointed with the food, childs pizza came with garlic bread, wanted to swap this for chips but the answer was no. The pizza was a chicargo town microwave one, very poor. Also the childs sunday lunch was bigger than the adults. Food was very dry and very poor quality. certainly wont be going again… Read Full Review

“Really disappointed with the food. Childrens meatballs...”

Written on: 22/12/2010

Really disappointed with the food. Childrens meatballs with pasta looked like they came from a tin, really poor quality, I wouldn't give them this at home. My chicken tikka was really watery and tasted like a ready-meal. Also service really poor. Staff hanging around chatting and ignoring customers.

Won't be going back there again… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2010

I have just returned from spending a lovely afternoon at the walnut tree. As the weather was bad and cold we thought we would take the kids to the wacky warehouse to burn off some energy. It has been a while since we had been to the walnut tree and I was pleasantly surprised with the standards. The wacky had been updated, even had a small climbing wall, which the kids loved and there was plenty of seating and a small coffee area for us adults to chill. It was very clean and the staff were great… Read Full Review

The Walnut Tree, on the face of it is good value, and you can customise your meal without problem, but the last two times we have been we have experienced unwelcome additions to the meal. Have to think hard before we go again… Read Full Review

“After my daughter said she went to The Walnut Tree...”

Written on: 21/11/2004 by natalieflo (5 reviews written)

After my daughter said she went to The Walnut Tree Restaurant in Wakefield and it was nice, we thought we would give it a try.
Firstly, I could not believe how greasy the seats were, they had a thick black sheen over the worn out fabric, the restaurant reminded me of a cross between a Caravan park clubhouse and a Supermarket cafe and it was definitely in need of a refurbishment. Even the menus were sticky and dirty.
The starters came 25 minutes after ordering them, which is not too bad to say… Read Full Review

Katecb's Response to natalieflo's Review

Written on: 22/11/2004

I agree completely! We had a meal there last year and the ceiling started to drip, and then collapsed - my husband joked that he hadn't wanted a table in the deep end. The food was poor, the service poorer....really sad actually - the Walnut tree used to be a Porterhouse restaurant, the finest steaks, food and service were available - the demise of this wonderful restaurant into a 2 for 1 if you're desperate is so sad :(
