The Walnut Tree -
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.
The Michelin Guide
describes The Walnut Tree as “an iconic restaurant with an illustrious past. Its location in the rolling borderlands of Wales makes it a destination kind of a place and its loyal band of regulars is testament to the quality of the cooking. The owners run it with heart and soul and, with its cosy open-fired bar and dining room hung with colourful art, it’s hard not love it too.”
