“Nice food in truly special surroundings.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

As you approach this restaurant you know that you are in for a treat. The surroundings are impressive. Once inside you will receive a very warm welcome from the owners Madeline and Nick. The food is all sourced locally, and cooked to order. There is a Think Tank menu on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, at an impressive £35 for 2 people and that includes a bottle of wine!! You should take note that it is now know as The Todmorden Vintner.

“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

The overall experience was lovely. It was Valentines day and they'd decorated the rooms perfectly, rose petals on the table and a chocolate each.

The food was wonderful, although a set menu the options were great. It was a wonderful service and neither of us could complain about anything. The drinks were great, the food were great and the staff were wonderful.

It was very cosey, dimmed lights (not too dark however), there was music quietly playing in the back ground and the dining room was lovely and quiet. I even forgot that there were other people there sometimes.

I would highly recommended the Vitner (formally known as the old hall) to anyone. It wasn't cheap but you certainatly get what you pay for.

“Good quality food and excellent hosts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

The Old Hall serves good quality, local produce in a very welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. The building itself is impressive and inside the decoration really compliments its history. Service is excellent and the hosts make a real effort to ensure you enjoy your meal. A lovely selection of bread is given at the start of the meal and the choice of dishes available changes according to the seasons. This is the only place to go in Todmorden if you want a more formal meal and setting so treat yourself!

“Tod Vintner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

Lovely to walk up to the Old Hall (now Tod Vintner) and see the wood burning stove, the warm lighting, the array of bottles on the shelves and the wood panelling through the leaded windows ....
... and that was just the start.
Very friendly, helpful proprietors, tasty bread basket selection, great starter (black pudding with spicy apple and pear in filo with a chive dressing) delicious bouillabaisse, spot on wine (last bottle of the verdejo they had in at the time.)
Marvellous.
