Dined here for a 'quick bite' whilst catching up with some friends. Ordered a sandwich but was informed they don't do sandwiches after 5pm but not a problem as they had a good choice of food on the 'deal' menu. Choose ham egg and chips whilst my friend had a pasta dish - both priced at £4.99. My ham was... More

The family staff here were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was very large and well appointed. Food was excellent and service was always with a smile. Having stayed in a couple of other Old English Inns before, this far exceeded my expectations and is certainly the best I've been to. Definitely worth a stay!

warm friendly hotel. This is an old building with a lot of character. The room we stayed in was larger than your average hotel room, very clean and comfortable. Restaurant food was excellent and good selection on menu. All hotel staff were very friendly and had some good laughs. Will definitely book this hotel again.

This is a nice old hotel with lots of character, comfortable rooms that have been well furnished, and nice food on offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bathrooms are probably not as high quality as the bedrooms and it can be a bit noisy if your room is overlooking the car park and there is music playing in the... More

Stayed for just one night while attending a family function. Nice welcome and good service at breakfast. Room was very pleasant and clean but a bit bland. Overall a nice stay. The hotel is located on the high street and close to the town centre.

Nice large room with all the amenities. An excellent cooked breakfast was included in the rate. The pub had a wonderful patio which was great as it was a warm evening. The Staff from reception to restaurant were very friendly. Had some delicious bar snacks with an interesting find, Pimms Cider.

Pleasant Staff and nice clean surroundings made this a perfect evening. The menu had a good choice at reasonable prices, service was very good and I was impressed by our waiter who, produced 3 separate bills (as requested) and with no prompting had the correct food and drink on them all. I did find drink prices a bit steep but... More

We stayed at this pub/hotel/restaurant whilst attending a wedding nearby. The room we were given was well presented, clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had a quick lunch which wasn't as it took the kitchen 25 minutes to prepare 4 sandwiches. The sandwiches were very nice when they eventually arrived. Breakfast the following morning was adequate albeit pretty... More
