My family and I have been very frequent visitors to the Old Inn over the last 30 years and through many changes of management, however, our experience on March 18th may well bring our custom to an end. It was my Mum's birthday and she chose the venue. I should point out that throughout the meal, we were all very... More

I am sorry we offered you poor service when you dined at the Old Inn. On this occasion, my mother was in hospital after having a major heart attack. The member of staff who was covering phoned in sick, leaving my wife to run the front of house. I was on my way back from visiting my mother at East... More

Have only recently moved into the area & wanted to seek out a great Sunday lunch venue. We found it at the first attempt! What a gorgeous pub/restaurant! As a non-meat eater, there were loads of vegetarian & fish options to choose from - a pleasant change! I opted for Thai curry mussels & they were amazing; large plump mussels... More

Have been back here 5 times since my initial review. With no complaints Booked again tonight and brought my daughter and her boyfriend with us. How very disappointing it was! Lovely mussels but bland, tasteless juice, sauté potatoes which were so over cooked and hard they were inedible, flavourless chilli but overpowering heat at back of throat, liver and bacon... More

I am sorry to ready we did not meet your expectations last night. I was on duty and the restaurant was packed. After I cleared your starter plates, I asked if everything was ok and you and your guests responded with a yes. There was no mention of the disappointment with the mussels. In fact it did not stop your... More

We went to the Old Inn for a lovely meal using a voucher we had bought from living social. We enjoyed a lovely meal of chateaubriand with chips and salad. The staff were lovely but we felt the atmosphere lacked a little but it was a quiet evening. Overall we will certainly go back and hopefully it might be a... More

Visited for lunch with the family. Service was great, nice and friendly staff. Food was good. P.S. The house red could be better quality for the price.

We called in for lunch as it was somewhere we had not visited before. The food was high end pub grub, good quality although a bit pricey. One thing we noticed was the vast amount of salad served, which is not to every ones taste. The beer is well kept and the pub is well presented. We hope to revisit... More
