Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We held my mums WAKE at the tavern last night after her cremation. We hired the room to the left of the bar which was just the perfect size for what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble. Their care ,compassion and thought to detail...for our situation was lovely. They prepared the room as asked and the food was served not long after we arrived. The food was very good, many compliments were given and for what we paid, there was just so much of it! Shaun and his team were amazing and we will definitely be using their services again, Great job and thank you again👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻More

Great place to go for drinks. Usually have karaoke on a Friday night which is a good laugh. Food is great too! The little blonde lady behind the bar is really welcoming. Genuinely a great pub with great service.

New rules re covid are hard but staff need to be more observant so customers are not waiting too long especially when not busy... then the staff member becomes defensive with smart comments !

My husband and I visited The Old Hall Tavern to try out their menu as we had been recommended. We found the pub to be quite busy with other customers but it would seem we were the only people eating there. Should this have been...an omen. We ordered the beef and ale pie with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The meals arrived after about a 15, minute wait ,which was fair. It was quite a substantial meal but the crust ont the pie was hard and overdone. The contents were tasty. The runner beans were 'all dente' which is how I like them but my husband complained they were not cooked enough. The staff were friendly but the general appearance of the pub was not very clean. Also part through our meal some members of the staff began moving tables and chairs I guess getting ready for the evening entertainment, if in fact there was one which made us feel a bit uncomfortable as we were sitting on the stage area We would not go back there I'm afraid but at least we tried it out.More

Looking for somewhere to eat, stumbled across the reviews and decided to chance it... what a lovely surprise! Offer on a bottle of wine set us in right frame of mind- buy 2 glasses and get rest of bottle free! £11 for a bottle of...Pinot ? Dont mind if I do... we had mac n cheese and breaded mushroom starters- both delicious and piping hot with a beautifully prepared side salad. Mains, I had the steak pie and pete had the bacon chops- both lovely. Found the locals very chatty and friendly and Emer was great and welcoming from the moment we walked in. Had a lovely meal and we will be back soon!More

As a family pub its wonderful, the food is lovely, the decor is lovely, always kept clean. My concerns are, language and vulgarity of customers, the use of drug paraphernalia used on the premises, which I noticed inside/outside of the building, and drug paraphernalia being...sold outside and marijuana being smoked, which i noticed when taking my family home. Didn't need to see that after consuming a lovely meal. Bar staff are lovely, management are lovely, just need to keep an eye out.More
