Its not really a pub more a restaurant the staff did not really have any interest in the bar there was a few ales nothing spectacular but nice.

Obviously this is a new build gastro pub and of course feels like it so nothing really to expect there.

Would I go back? No
Would I tell a friend? Probably not

A family/children’s restaurant style pub with little character and staff who seem to have little interest in the bar.
But, the pub does sell a good range of beer, but not always well kept nor well served.

As I understand it the pub does do a lot to be part of the local community and so that is very commendable.

A new pub serving the local community very well.

Whislt this definately is a new housing development pub devoid of the charm of a typical thatched pub as other commentaries suggest. However it does have a great selection of ales and lagers, on tap and is always a very welcoming environment. Guest ales usually include one of the smaller local breweries and are always worth a try, as you will often find some true gems.

The landlord excels at looking after the local community and getting them involved with the pub.

The Food is good honest pub grub and doesn't pretend to be one of the new aged gastro pubs. Consequently the prices are good old fashion pub grub prices not new aged gastro prices., and provide excellent value for money.

A couple of ales on display but I did get the impression that this was more of a restaurant than a pub. The food did look good and even though I did not eat any of it myself, I did have a look at their quite extensive menu. The atmosphere was pretty non existent (which is what I what have expected from a restaurant style pub) even though it was reasonably busy, especially for a Tuesday night. Go if you cannot be bothered to walk into Mere town centre for one of the other pubs in the area.

I feel a lot of the comments about the Walnut Tree miss the point. That any pub exists is testament to the progressive policies of the local council and the sensible, sensitive developers. I should state I have no connection to either. The 'new' pub might lack interior 'character' but ultimately this takes time to develop and evolve. Why should we expect all new build pubs to be banal pastiches of rustic country pubs? Surely if the British pub is to have a future, then it must evolve. As it happens, this particular pub serves an ever-changing range of well-kept ales and offers good, if not great value, food.
