Good old girls evening out at The Old Cottage. The waitress had no idea what lagers were available and had to be prompted by another member of staff. But we passed this off 'maybe she was new'. Excellent menu choice. Plenty to choose from and a fantastic price 3 courses 19.95. Food was very good and I would definitely visit... More

Went here for my sister's birthday for a treat. We are a big fan of tapas food, and the old cottage didn't dissapoint! Lovely setting, Spanish themed music played live from a professional guitar player which actually made us feel like we were on holiday ! The food was superb and there was so much of it ! Different dishes... More

I was one of a party of about 20 who enjoyed a meal here last week. Everything was perfect: friendly, polite, helpful staff contributed to a lovely evening but most of all the food was superb. I had sardines and then lamb tagine - both were delicious and I'm feeling hungry all over again just writing about it! My friend... More

Have dined here twice and both occasions had a great meal. It is a little on the pricey side but lovely for a special occasion. Town centre based and parking available but no car park belonging to the restaurant.
