The food was excellent. We went at lunch and the menu was varied and the quality of what is served is great for the price. The portion sizes were also excellent. As a veggie my options were varied and I really enjoyed what I had. Good service- friendly staff and they were very helpful. The waiter was attentive and chatty.... More

Having heard good reviews about the restaurant, I decided to give it a try. The stains on the carpets and walls should have alerted me, but I thought I would stick with it. Having asked for a table for one, I was informed that there was availability, however, to my horror, I was sat at the table of another party... More

Disappointing. Went for a Sunday lunch but, despite "booking", they seemed to have no idea we were coming. Ushered to the upstairs section on arrival, we all found the place very untidy and messy. The carpets were extremely dirty and stained. There were stains on the walls too. It didn't look as if any cleaning had taken place since closing... More

Dined at the Old Cottage for the second time, and must say this was one of the best meals we have had in a long time. We eat out regularly and like to try different restaurants, what makes this place stand out is the friendly attentive staff and the excellent quality food in a nice setting. We will now be... More

We all ordered off the set lunchtime menu (all various meals) and all meals were lovely, hot and tasty. we all had the Trifle for dessert and I must... More

Went here for Sunday lunch after hearing how nice it was. We sat upstairs in the restaurant and the first thing we noticed was how dirty the carpet was. It looked as if food had been tipped on the floor on more than one occasion and not cleaned up. If they had hoovered it I don 't think it would... More

Great food but not much atmosphere. Lunch time value is exceptional. More a family meal time venue than party night.
