I was in a group of about 20 people celebrating a colleagues' retirement. The atmosphere was pleasant and we were seated in a good part of the restaurant. However, this was the only good part of the evening. The service was very slow, we even had to go to the bar to get our drinks. We had ordered our food... More

We decided on the Old School to have a drive out for Sunday lunch. Well worth the effort, food was fantastic, I had the seared venison, delicious, and my wife had the chicken supreme, perfect. The staff were really attentive, could not have been a nicer meal. The place has been sensitively refurbished with a classy feel, even in the... More

Wanted to go out for a bite to eat with the other half but fancied somewhere outside Scunthorpe. Saw the menu for the OSI and it wasn't too expensive so decided to give it a go. Wasn't very busy at all when we got there at half 12 so was able to get a table and be served straight away.... More

We visited this Sunday for the Sunday lunch menu and opted for the full 3 courses because it was such good value at £19.95. Between us we had the mussels, chicken liver parfait, two roast beef dinners and two chocolate fondant desserts, with a bottle of Chilean merlot. It was busy, had a lovely atmosphere and the service was faultless.... More

Called in on a Thursday and saw a deal for any burger or salad for £10 on a Wednesday or Thursday so thought we would give it a try. We both opted for the beef burger with mushroom and Stilton topping. Lovely homemade burger, nicely cooked, served with homemade onion rings, skinny fries, creamy coleslaw and a tomato relish. Far...

A most enjoyable experience, very good service with an excellent choice of drinks. We had the sunday lunch which was brilliant, that is all three courses, at very affordable prices. I and my party of 9 recommend The Old School Inn. To all

Brought friends from York, we have been before and had a great night and have recommended to others, however this won't happen anymore. Went on a Friday night, not busy in the restaurant, however the service was shocking, slow, ignored to say but a few things. The room was cold and dull. The food, well, a friend found a hair...

Visted for dinner. Food was excellent and home cooked. Would have gave a 5 but the lighting is far to bright and zero candles were lit, ambience is very important for a bar and this failed at every level due to lighting only and zero music background.

What a fantastic night out. 5 stars for everything. The place looks like it has just been refurbished very clean and neat. Very polite and helpful staff and we didn't wait to long between courses. I think the food could possibly be the best I have ever had eating out. Although they were very busy with Christmas parties we were... More
