Excellent vegan menu, it’s always a welcome sight when you are given your own menu to choose from. Excellent starter of mixed mushrooms on toasted bread followed by a main course of a coconut curry served with boiled rice. Too full to try dessert!

We have been here many times and it is a lovely place and staff are friendly and helpful, however they are clearly stretched, condiments never arrived nor a glass of water asked for. Can understand. Starters were lovely but the Sunday roast was luke warm...at best. Perfectly edible but not warm enough. Could have asked for it to be microwaved but took a view to just get on with it. Some of our group had fresh cooked stuff and all very good. On this occasion, sorry guys for the Sunday Roast. Average at best. We will be back and would recommend the place but will order off menu next timeMore

Cold food all round, raw leeks that were unpleasant for everyone and to top it off an unsuitable child's dinner with small bones included. Complained to staff that it was dangerous for a 3 year old and they did not apologise or even care. Never...going backMore

So lovely to be back at the Old Cottage for a post-lockdown family meal and birthday get together - really great food (thanks to Leon and Kelly) and a friendly welcome and great service from Sophie. Safe and clean too. Highly recommended!

Despite the hail stones, wind and rain we were well looked after under a large umbrella with heating. The service was friendly and helpful, the food was lovely. I had the dirty burger, my friends had the chicken and my wife had a salad. We...all enjoyed it.More

Went for lunch with some friends. Weather was a bit cool, but the intermittent hail showers didn’t spoil our lunch. The staff did a great job, managing to keep cheerful and serving us at the table. We all enjoyed the food. Just great to be...out.More

As long time regulars we have to commend Sophie and her team for providing a warm welcome, great service and excellent food,on a very chilly afternoon with the odd shower. The garden is well served by umbrellas and the main one has heaters above. We...were dressed for the temperature and brought blankets for knees. An enjoyable afternoon was had.More

delicious 3 course meal - enjoyed by myself and 2 other friends Had salmon/ prawn, pork followed by eton mess. Others had turkey dinner. Special online sign up offer so we had 50% off the festive menu which was real bonus.
