At first the Old Inn seemed like a good option as it boasts a rustic appearance in a fine location along with some friendly staff and a promising menu. However the food served did not match expectations and of the starters served the goats cheese was nothing that couldn't be done at home and the langoustines were embarrassingly small and verging on insulting. The mains produced a marked improvement with the seafood platter representing the best dish on our table but from the others the scallops were inconsistent with some over cooked and ruined by a burnt flavouring from the searing. In addition the monkfish was very basic and simply served with a poor quality sauce, salty mash, and soggy boiled green beans.
Desert was probably the highlight of the meal but due to there being no vanilla ice cream available it was a little odd sharing a plate with strawberry ice-cream and creme brulee. A final negative being that a couple of wines we wanted were not available and the Australian Sauvignon that we opted for turned out to be from New Zealand - not a bad thing but maybe gives and idea of the attention to detail at the Old Inn.
