Hearty food & beautiful surroundings

This is a very beautiful castle-like building serving hearty meals. Lots of nooks & crannies to sit in away from the main areas and a wonderful beer garden for sunny days.

Decided to stop off for some dinner and was not disappointed. Great choice on the menu and was totally delicious when it arrived. The Old Court Hotel seemed most popular and the staff were very friendly too. We would definitely go back and try something else on the menu.

This is expensive on the onset, however only slightly and worth it if you want a lovely old hotel with warm staff who are always happy to help. Rooms vary in size but if you book early ask for them to provide what you want. May be slightly more money. We have stayed her a few times and loved location,... More

We ate here as a late lunch after a day's canoeing and both enjoyed superb sandwiches! Freshly prepared, chunky bread, tasty and plentiful fillings, it was just what was needed. The setting is fantastic, and the sun was shining, so we sat happily out in the extensive gardens, enjoying the views and ambience. Friendly and prompt service.

I came with a group of friends for afternoon tea and was really disappointed. For £10.95 I had expected dainty sandwiches, cakes, scones etc served on tiered plates as I have had in numerous other restaurants. Here we had chunky sandwiches, which would have been great for lunch, and scones already cut and covered with a spoon of jam and... More

We stayed here last year and found the same, but we didn't use this Trip Avisor thing then. The place promises, and the staff are attentive enough if a bit too sure of themselves when it comes to how good which ale is, when they don't even drink it. Anyway, food ok, big enough portions but lacking in quality. Underneath... More

Lovely garden, Dogs allowed on lead. (Water bowls provided without prompting which was nice) Good value pub food- good size portions. Came back this year having eaten here last year as a large family group. Lots of birds of prey spotted over the hills- lovely to watch. staff polite and good service.

Beautiful old building with huge beer garden and terrace, play area. Friendly staff. Excellent food. We had the steak and ale pie with fresh veg and chips. Couldn't have cooked it better myself!
