A famous inn and restaurant since the early 60’s, The Walnut Tree sits two miles east of Abergavenny. The Walnut Tree has been known as a food-lovers destination since the early 1960s when it was owned and run by Franco Taruschio. Shaun Hill, previously chef owner of The Merchant House in Ludlow, arrived in 2008 to begin a new era for the restaurant. After nearly 50 years in the kitchen, Shaun Hill is still found in the kitchen every day creating the sort of food he likes to eat himself with a deep knowledge of culinary techniques and showcasing excellent seasonal and local ingredients. Our elegant dining is simple furnished with eclectic and changing art curated by our sister business The Art Shop & Chapel in Abergavenny.
