My boyfriend and I are both vegetarians so we ordered the vegetarian mushroom pie, but were served a chicken pie, only we didn't realise at first. I haven't ever eaten meat before, and am really disappointed. Won't be going back here.

We were attending a funeral at the Woodlands and having arrived early, decided to have a mid morning coffee at the Walkford. We found this to be a very friendly pub with a nice atmosphere. Very relaxing.

Been here before and have always enjoyed my visit. Good food at extremely good value. Friendly and attentive staff and welcoming environment. Would certainly recommend for a lunchtime visit but have to admit I have not been for an evening meal.
