This is a charming old building with lovely oak beams and a nice atmosphere. The food was excellent, and so were the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We were well served but not hurried.

Always reliable and nicely done up in muted cream and grey. Excellent service. Good menu. Food very good, not outstanding but reliably good. Lovely old building with log fire and quaint loos. Area for pre meal drinks. Book to avoid disappointment.

Excellent. Canape's with drinks, followed by a 3 course meal with wine. Canape's had only just been made and had good crisp bases. Salmon and cheese and patè were scrumptious. Lamb was particularly well received as was the turkey and sea bass.

My wife and I went to the Old Moot House for a celebratory dinner. We had a really good meal served by friendly staff in newly refurbished surroundings. We thoroughly recommend this fairly intimate venue.

We dined here on a Sunday for lunch, and as per British tradition a Sunday Roast. I choose the beef and I wasn't disappointed as this came with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, seasonal veg and cauliflower cheese. The meat was succulent, moorish, and didn't disappoint....More
