“What a great package”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is just the type of pub anyone would want to be within walking distance of. It has an olde worlde relaxed atmosphere, friendly service, nice beer garden, big fire in the grate and great pub food. I am a regular visitor and, if I didn't live 60 miles away, would frequent the inn far more often. The menu has a mixture of traditional fare such as fish and chips and steak pie with some more exotic choices such as fajitas and vegetarian haggis in a creamy sauce, and all at an affordable cost. This does "local pub" better than any other place I know.

Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Been here several times with no complaints. First time ordering a kids meal. 4.70 for a bit of mash with a sausage stuck in it. Not happy

Hello
Thanks for pointing this out and although we have never had any complaints in the past we are now upgrading our "Little Persons" menu.
The sausage and mash dish for the kids will now have two sausages and we will have a more varied option available on other meals.
Your feedback has been great and we hope to see you at the Inn soon.

“Poor portions”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

My 2 friends and I had dinner at Ye Olde Inn and I was shocked at the small portion of fish and chips that we got . Was also disappointed that there was no peas. Thank goodness my husband wasn't there as he would need to visit The Corbie before going home . Service was very good from a very smiley waitress .Just getting tucked into some toast now not long after my dinner at Ye Olde Inn .

Hello
We are sorry you did not feel the portion of food was adequate during your visit and have passed your comments on to the manager although we would point out the light bite option on the menu does not come with any peas and is a smaller portion.
Our new menu has been well received by locals and new customers - and as a valued customer, we hope to see you back soon.
Thanks for your comments about the staff - we have a great, dedicated team and your warm words will be passed on.

“poor easter meal”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

my sister and i went for easter lunch i am afraid we were both very dissapointed with our meal although the waiting staff was pleasant enough the food fell short value for money we were told there were three main item on the menu that were not available and this was only 1.45 we settled for bangers and mash with side of veg that was very overcooked and the mash was not fresh potatoes i asked the waitress to inquire about the mash and she returned with the answer that they are bought in and cooked from frozen so i asked her if she would let the chef know that i thought they tasted awful we left our potatoes and most of the veg and will not be returning and i will be letting my friends and family know it spoilt ouf easter day

Dear Rose
Thank you for your response and for taking time to point out your disappointment with your meal. We have passed your comments on to the manager as well as the head chef.
The Ye Olde Inn was to launch a new menu last week and the kitchen had been running down certain stock. This is extremely disappointing and we can only apologise.
You will be pleased to know the management have also addressed the other issues you raised which did not provide you with the best customer experience on the day. Thank you for that valuable feedback.
The Ye Olde Inn serves meals to hundreds of customers each day and we can only thank you for pointing out this dip in their usually high standards.
We hope to see you and your family in again.
