We have eaten here before and had vowed never to go back due to the poor service and abysmal attitude of the owner. Having heard it had changed hands we decided to try it for lunch on a Saturday. All is forgiven. The rooms have all been redecorated. Lunch was extremely good value. The staff and the restaurant manager extremely... More

We booked at very short notice (within half an hour) when the nearby Marriott Hotel messed up our booking. Our room was large, comfortable, and full of charm, complete with a wooden floor and oak beams reflecting the age of the building. The en-suite bathroom was clean and bright, with a large bath and shower. What particularly impressed us was... More

We stayed for three nights around the time of our son's wedding at nearby Park Place. Various friends and other family members joined us for either one, two or three nights. We stayed in one of the garden rooms, very spacious and peaceful - fortunately the weather was fine so there was no need to make use of the umbrella... More

We could not thank the staff at the Old House Hotel enough. Our room was perfect, they were so kind and helped us to get over the stressed caused to us by the appalling behaviour of the Meon Valley Marriott Hotel and Country Club

Went to a lunch party here recently. Delightful pre-lunch reception on the lawn featuring delicious Pimms and excellent hors d'oeuvres. That's where the fun ended. The food at lunch was very poor. Chicken Milanese would have been good as table tennis bats. Dessert even worse. All a shame as the location is quaint with great potential.

Had a fantastic meal at the Old House with my wife and our parents/in laws. All the mains were delicious, the john dory and lamb 3 ways particularly so. Also really impressed with the attitude and customer focus from the staff, I had a problem with my desert but it was dealt with without fuss! The alternative deconstructed lime cheesecake... More

Everything was excellent for our big day. From the extremely helpful staff to the absolutely perfect setting. Dawn and her team made sure that the day ran smoothly and that everything was correct to the finest detail. The room at the end of the night was amazing, as was breakfast the morning after. Thankyou so much for all your help... More

Our first visit since the makeover, it is a while since we have dined here though we used to come several times a year, especially on birthdays & anniversaries, this time we brought our staff for a company lunch. We have always enjoyed the food but the last couple of times thought the service wasn't quite of the high standard... More

An overdue return to this rather lovely part of the world provided some unexpected branding and a revamped reception on arrival. Gone is the 'old' private dining room at the front of the hotel - it is now a formal reception area. I expect there was a need for it, but the 'new' private dining room lacks something in comparison.... More

Dear DJS_7_17, Big thank you for taking the time to review the new Old House Bar and Restaurant. The Old House Hotel has become part of the B+B Collection and there has been a wonderful period of re-branding to make the property part of the B+B family. The bar area at the front of the property was inherited from the... More

Attended the same event on Sunday 26 July as one of the other reviewers and I agree with the comments. The quality of the roast beef and lamb was very good but there must have been a desperate fish shortage that day, despite the fact that we ordered in advance. My smoked mackerel starter consisted of three small pieces that... More

Dear Sirs Sincerely, it is never our intention that a meal is not enjoyed. Every plate of food is prepared and served by knowledgable, well trained, passionate individuals - please accept my re-assurance that we do not compromise service and delivery for any tables - groups included. We have a long standing reputation of looking after big groups well. Apologies... More
