We've had many, many meals here and, hand on heart, every single one has been a pure delight! Visually, beautifully presented food - almost too good to eat! But, you gotta eat it!! And then comes the pleasure! Flavours and mixes of tastes that I would never have considered, or, have tried elsewhere and hated. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly... More

As a regular at the Old Inn for more years than I can remember I have enjoyed many excellent meals. However, in December last I noticed a big decline in choice and quality of the lunch time offerings. I put this down to being the Christmas period. I was therefore, disappointed when on Saturday my wife and I had the... More
