returned to eat there after a few years away. It has stepped up a league. Friendly waiter with wit. Food was tastey and well presented. Two menues, one with sunday roasts the other with a wide choice. Recommend the goats cheese and beetroot starter. Give it a go.

We decided to have lunch at the Old Inn on Sunday 12 th march,when we arrived at the restaurant we found it very difficult to find a parking space but eventually managed to squeeze into what seemed to be the last one. I'm glad that we did because the food was worth the effort. I had the rare roast sirloin...

Stayed overnight for a family birthday celebration. Staff very attentive. Delicious food although the vegetarian option tasted bland. Breakfast the next day was fantastic. We had a standard room overlooking the Main Street. Heard cars in the morning but otherwise ok. Old fashioned sash windows. The bed was very high off the floor which is ok if you are tall...

Dear Littledippy F, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. We have taken your feedback on board and have changed the bed bases in question, which has resolved that issue. On the issue of breakfast, this is trickier to overcome. We have been heavily criticised in the past for being too slow at breakfast and...

Having visited the hotel for meals on a number of occassions, my husband and I decided to try an overnight stay in February. The room was beautiful, comfortable and spotless.

The setting and decor of this restaurant is lovely. The bar is also cosy with coal fires and comfortable seating - you can also eat here. However, the Early Bird menu in the restaurant was very disappointing- only 3 choices and one of them a sandwich. You get a glass of wine or soft drink included for £12.50. We chose...
