“Amazing atmosphere with amazing food.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Visited the restaurant on numerous occasions. Wednesday steak night is amazing. Steak cooked beautifully and generous portions. The chicken burger is my favourite with hand cut chips. The seasoning on the food was on point. Also has a fantastic selection of wine. Service was exceptional, very friendly staff.

“Try the afternoon tea....it's fantastic ”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Have had various afternoon teas recently, including local restaurants and even The Ritz and this certainly gave a fantastic experience.
The service was excellent, food presented beautifully and an additional £2.50 provided us with a huge glass of Prosecco to make the meal even more of a treat.
The sandwiches were very tasty and the ingredients clearly carefully chosen,all accompanied with vegetable crisps. Lots of petit fours inc tiny macaroons which were amazing. Beautiful homemade scones, lemon drizzle cake and as much tea or coffee as we could drink.
The afternoon was perfect for a romantic treat, but equally I would have loved to come with friends or my Mum.
I can recommend Old House enough, it's a great choice for both a daytime lunch, afternoon tea or gastro treat for evening meal... I believe breakfast to now be available and can't wait to try it out!

“Old House -Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I've had meals here before and enjoyed what I've ordered so thought I would try the afternoon tea which they have just launched. I went with three friends, 2 of us have had the tea at Beckworth Emporium so had that to compare it to. At £10 per person or £12.50 if including a glass of Prosecco I thought it was good value.
The price includes a platter of sandwiches with various fillings and vegetable crisps, a platter of scones and cake and a platter of sweet treats. All were very tasty and nicely presented. You also could have as much tea or coffee you could drink.
We had great service and in such lovely surroundings it made a perfect girlie treat after a shopping session. As it is on my doorstep I will be definitely go again and may even buy it a birthday gift for people in the future.
Comparing it to Beckworth Emporium it was cheaper and the food was as good. If I had to be picky I would have liked less scones and maybe a selection of small cakes.

“Excellent Food & Clean Toilets!!!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Eh?

What's with the toilets remark?

Well, these days I'm tending to judge an establishment by the quality if their loos!! I'd go so far as to say if you check these out first it will tell you everything you need to know about whether the service will be good or the beer and the food on the spot!!!

Here, they are clean and have been tastefully (ok, perhaps a subjective comment) designed. Plenty of black, white and chrome. But most importantly - CLEAN. Other establishments should take note.

This is how to do a Loo!

GF and I had vegetarian burger with chunky chips (with skins on). Have to say - delicious, really tasty.

Also, like the way they have done up the outdoor section out the back. Looks and feels good.

Not too many signs of any riff raff pub louts that could lurk in corners of pubs on the two occasions vid been in.

Definitely one to repeat. I hope soon.
