2 for 1 at The Walnut Tree Inn

Located just outside the historic village of Blisworth near Northampton and Towcester with easy access from the M1, the A43 and the A508 to Milton Keynes, the hotel is an ideal location for good quality informal dining, enjoying one of their music or comedy nights or just relaxing in their bar.

The Walnut Tree Inn formerly known as The Blisworth Hotel, opened after significant refurbishment in May 2005. Independently run by Donald and Bernie Turnbull, the inn offers 11 guest bedrooms, a well-stocked bar and a restaurant providing modern British cuisine as well as lighter meals and snacks.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available on Sundays due to the a la carte menu not being served.

  • Taylor said: "Told Of Surcharge After Finishing Our Steaks
    We have eaten here nearly 10 times each time with no difficulty for the tastecard. Every time we call and make a booking before and say we have a tastecard. Unfortunately this time after we sat and ate our steaks and had completely finished we were told there would be a 7£ surcharge for the steaks. Frustrating that this wasn’t communicated BEFORE we had eaten the entire steaks and had no alternative to order something with an extra 7£ charged. May have considered not getting the sauce to go with it or ordering something else. The charge is understandable and the food amazing but waiting until after you have eaten is not the time to tell people "

    Took my friend for lunch to the referbished place. Decorated really nice, looks clean and fresh. Sunny day so decided to eat outside.
    Area clean and tidy, very nicely done.
    Opted for the veggie burger, but asked not to have the bun as gluten intolerant. Waitress explained it doesn't come in a bun. Strange
    use of the term burger, not very well
    explained on menu very well. Had thrice fried chips, yummy. The sweet potato fries my fried had where great.
    Great pub staff attentive, would visit again "

    Brilliant evening for myself and my partner. The "tapatizers" were small portions but really were exquisite and did not leave you too full for the main. The Ribeye Steak was perfectly cooked to order and the vegetables that accompanied were very complementary. Would dine here every chance I got if I lived a bit closer! "
