This is a super "bistro" which I think unstated the food that is served here. We had delicious food reasonably priced for the quality. Serve was friendly and efficient. Of particular note today was the sea trout and fish pie - we will be back!

I LOVE this restaurant. I love the staff, the chatter, the menu, the drinks. But the food! Oh the food is sublime, tasty, different. Beautifully presented and everything on the plate complements the main part. Have never had a poor meal here. Great work Pete...More

One of my favourite restaurants. The food is always of the highest standard and they always try new things with their menu. Save room for dessert as their baked goods are so scrumptious.

Nice selection of cafes and good coffee. Some people were having more substantial meals - quite a fe wlocals eating there which is a good sign. Very nice service and good value.

I have seen many young children at the Old School House. they have high chairs and from I have seen they have catered very well for the children. I've seen some parents bring their tablet for the kids to watch something on.
