I was recommended the Walnut Tree by a nearby hotel that was full. It turned out to be a very good find and I shall definitely stay there again. It was an easy 2.5 miles from where I needed to be in Bridgwater. Access from the M5 Junction 24 is excellent. I booked a single room, 'room only', online for...

Plush lounge , friendly service lovely turkey with freshly roasted potatoes. Sometimes choice is limited in the evening if lunch was busy on a Sunday but well worth a visit. Will definitely be returning.

We called in for lunch just before Christmas. Despite the holiday season the service and food could not have been surpassed. A beautiful tastefully decorated dining room. No over-intrusive seasonal decorations. Peaceful and tranquil. Cheryl (I think) the wairess and serving at the bar could not have been more helpful and charming. The food was flawless for both courses and...

A warm welcome is assured at the Walnut Tree Hotel in North Petherton, Somerset. The staff are extremely friendly and the food is excellent (although portions are a little on the small side if you have a large appetite!). It is great to find somewhere where one is guaranteed to enjoy good quality food in a relaxed but casual/smart environment.

Lovely friendly staff.. whom from the booking to the arrival, where always polite and professional. The staff couldn't have been anymore helpful, friendly and genuinely concerned.

This was a package, two nights to cover the Bridgewater/Petherton carnival, November 2016. This was our third visit to see the carnival. The hotel offered a complete package to accommodate seeing the carnival, which takes approx. 2hrs plus to pass the front of the hotel. Super food, excellent friendly staff.

My friend and I needed a hotel room late in the day, but every hotel we came to was already booked! Somehow, we got off the M5, and found this gem of a hotel. We went in hoping for a room, but sadly, they didn't have one. That could have been it for my story, but I wanted to put...
