I visited the Blue Walnut on a business trip with some local vets. The staff are really friendly and the food was delicious - cooked fresh and delivered without a long wait. Lovely setting and I would like to visit the quirky little cinema there...More

The Blue Walnut is a cafe in the daytime but on selected evenings each month we become a live music venue, host Poetry Island's Performance Poetry evening's, The Jocular Spectacular Roving Comedy Club and The Mickelodeon Film Club. Home cooked soups and a selection of specials available daily. Gluten free cakes and brownies. We serve Origin Coffee which is roasted in Helston, Cornwall. We also pride ourselves on using locally sourced products when possible John Shambrook's Butchers, Hallett's Bakery and Riverside Poultry Farm. There is a private 23 seat cinema which we use for the film club and we also take private bookings for people to use. There is also a private garden which can be a suntrap. We are also licensed and have a good selection of ale & cider may from local suppliers.
