Booked a table for two and arrived in time at this attractive Inn. First impressions were that this was a typical old coaching inn and expectation was high. However the "restaurant" part was full with a hen party and we were stuffed on a small table in the bar. Soon to be buried in noisy teenagers who totally ruined the... More

Although the pub was not very busy that lunchtime, the service was extremely slow. We waited for almost 45 minutes for our... More

I was meeting up with 3 friends and we had booked a table. We arrived early and the staff were very helpful and allowed us to choose where we sat. We had drinks and a range of well cooked food. Thank you. I gave a four out of five because the area we sat had quite a bit of food... More

Called in after a long journey. Very warm welcome including the dog. Food took a while but absolutely worth it. The best fish pie in years! A lovely pub :-)

Tasty, hearty food and friendly staff. Really nice on a cold evening even just for a drink. Good and varied menu, if not a bit random!

We visited the Old Inn for Breakfast after we had got married at Cranberries. We both ordered a large full english. It was perfectly cooked, not greasy, and kept us full until dinner time. Will be visiting again as live nearby.

Thank Becky W
