The Blue Walnut is a relaxing, fully licensed Café hosting regular Live Music and Performance Poetry events together with an Art Gallery featuring the work of local artists.
Breakfast and lunch is available in the cafe which serves freshly cooked food and a selection of gluten and dairy free homemade cakes. Local Butcher John Shambrook provides the best quality bacon and sausages and to compliment our food we serve Origin organic, fairtrade coffee, a blend of coffees from Nicaragua, Honduras and Ethiopia which is roasted in Helston, Cornwall.
The bar is stocked with a variety of bottled ales, including ales from Hunter's Brewery in Ipplepen, food and refreshments can also be enjoyed in the quiet beer garden.
The Blue Walnut hosts a vibrant Film Club, which meets on the first Thursday of each month to view and discuss their own choice of film. We occasionally have spare seats available which the Club will release for £5 per seat, please contact us for details.
Infrequent Friday Film nights have resumed with the Cafe open from 7pm for drinks and food - booking is essential for food in advance of the film. We do ask for donations to ensure that the Cinema can continue.
We open for private functions on request. Prices vary and are tailored to your personal preference depending on whether you wish to combine a meal with your film choice or whether you simply wish to hire the cafe/bar area for a party with buffet.
Please see the Cinema or Events sections for details of films, music and performance poetry event.
