user reviews of the Walnut Tree, Sandal

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Externally, one of the ugliest pubs I have ever seen. Originally an half decent, brick built Tetley’s house in the 1970’s, it has been unsympathetically extended several times, over the years, to become the vast, sprawling mock-Tudor monstrosity it is today.
Internally, it is a huge, split level open-plan space, with little soul or character. A vast chunk of the floor space is given over to a dining area.

Make no mistake this is a real ‘Marmite’ pub: You’ll either love it or you’ll hate it.
That will depend on how you feel about only smooth-flow beers and cheap lagers being available and a food menu that largely features the words ‘dippers’, ‘combos’ and ‘steaks’. In short, the fare is various combinations of saturated fat, lumps of protein and chips.
The pub proudly offers a ‘2 for 1’ deal whereby the cheaper of the two adult main courses is free. However, you don’t have to be Stephen Hawking to work out that the cost of a meal is artificially high by at least 50% to accommodate this.
The pub also has a ‘Wacky Warehouse’ soft play area, for children. Birthday parties are commonly held here with their meals been eaten in the dining area. It can get pretty noisy.

One real plus is that the young staff are friendly and welcoming.

Debatably, a fantastic family pub, or a corporate hell hole? I do know it’s definitely not for me.
