“Pleasant, dependable restaurant, good beers and well cooked meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Last night was the second time we've been to the Old Hall, both times with friends and both times it has delivered. Very pleasant dining room, attentive staff, large menu; a very accomplished place to eat. This is part of the Bunning and Price chain who own several "gastro-pub" type places, they have clearly hit upon a good formula of well styled pubs serving "safe" options. That isn't meant to be derogatory, it's a winning proposition which they have replicated with great success, the old hall delivers in the same way as the the others in their chain. In summary, a very accomplished offer very well executed.

“Christmas Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We had a table for nine the week before Christmas. It was really busy, great buzz about the place. The waiting on staff were young but really pleasant and efficient. We pre ordered from the festive menu the food was lovely and served piping hot and all together. Great service for Christmas. We were also all given an envelope for a minimum 25% off for a revisit in January. Really looking forward to trying it again. A big fan of the Brunning & Price pub/ restaurants I have visited; all consistently good.

“Atmospheric dining in ancient building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We were a party of four having a meal in early December.
Although food is normally ordered at the bar, the facility to order at the table is available. We took advantage of this and the staff duly obliged without any problems. Little extras were requested from time to time from the serving staff but they obliged willingly.
The food was excellent and a nice evening was had by all. The manager, who lives on the premises, came round to the table and all concerned had a good laugh together ! Very nice evening.

“Beautifully restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Brunning & Price can do no wrong, great food, good beer and good atmosphere. Unfortunately we've noticed the prices are creeping up but they are everywhere.
