Some 10 years ago we started as The Veggie Red Lion at Great Bricett, then in 2017 we moved to The Walnut Tree at Thwaite.
We had been searching for our own premises for a number of years, so were delighted when the opportunity to buy the Old Buck’s Head arose. We wanted somewhere close enough that our regulars could still visit, for the existing team to stay together and where the business could be allowed to grow, free from increasing rents and beer-ties.
The move to the Walnut Tree was the end result of fantastic support over the years creating the demand for a bigger space to cook more vegetarian and vegan food.
We’re passionate about the food we create, and ensure it is all created in a 100% meat free environment. But don’t let this put you off if you’re a meat eater! We are certain that we will be able to surprise and satisfy your tastebuds.
With a wide range of homemade dishes, using fresh and locally sourced ingredients, proprietor Jan has achieved her dream of creating top quality food in a relaxed atmosphere.
