Shower also fine; tea and proper coffee available in room. Breakfast was mainly from locally sourced ingredients. We ate in both evenings and food was reasonable... More

Nachos as a starter were fantastic, the rest of the food was poor, worst steak and salad ever. Pie... More

A dad walks in to a bar with two children .....no this isn't a joke and the food, service and atmosphere were all seriously brilliant at this old coaching inn. The place is rustic and ' oldy worldly ' with lots of areas to find a quiet spot to relax. Real fire in the conservatory and stone flag stone floors,... More

Called in for lunch on a dismal day. Both had pies with different fillings. They were very tasty. Really like the building and the gardens are well kept. Always feel relaxed here.

We stopped by for a simple coffee but the afternoon stop off lasted into 40 minutes thanks to the relaxing surrounding and fine friendly service. The food menus suggest another visit sometime soon. Thank you, Old Court.
