We've stayed at Old Poets twice now. The most recent last weekend and again not disappointed. We went last weekend when the Beer Festival was on which was great especially for real ale drinkers! We particularly love Old Poets as it's a great atmosphere, dog...More

The no children almost anywhere policy is ludicrous, as is the miserable blonde barmaid. We walked in for lunch + dog + child (6yo). Ordered drinks. Had to stand in the 'children's zone' due to no tables despite there being 4 empty tables elsewhere...at 3pm...More
