A dad walks in to a bar with two children .....no this isn't a joke and the food, service and atmosphere were all seriously brilliant at this old coaching inn. The place is rustic and ' oldy worldly ' with lots of areas to find a quiet spot to relax. Real fire in the conservatory and stone flag stone floors,... More

Called in for lunch on a dismal day. Both had pies with different fillings. They were very tasty. Really like the building and the gardens are well kept. Always feel relaxed here.

We ate in the restaurant on Saturday night. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend.

We stopped by for a simple coffee but the afternoon stop off lasted into 40 minutes thanks to the relaxing surrounding and fine friendly service. The food menus suggest another visit sometime soon. Thank you, Old Court.

I recommend this place to all my family and friends and they always tell me that they have had a lovely time too! I will be back very soon... More

The setting is lovely which is what drew us to this place on the final day of our holiday. The food was awful, the children's pasta was too much for an adult let alone a child and it was watery and bland, and tagliatelle isn't really the easiest pasta for a child to eat. The fish fingers were large but... More

Thank you for your review which I read with great interest and sadness. The day you visited was sometime at the beginning of the children's holidays when we were exceptionally busy. On the day itself (some 8 weeks ago or more) you said that your husband "enjoyed" his pie and that your problem was with the vegetables, there was no... More

Being a local it's somewhere we pop occasionally for a Sunday dinner as you don't need to book. We ordered starters which came out quite quickly, however for deep fried Brie you would have expected it to be warm but it wasn't, we carried on and ate it any way but it was also over cooked. We then waited ages... More

Our 2nd time visiting the Old Court Hotel, we were staying on the campsite at the end of the road in the T5 and wandered up to the restaurant. Beautiful 16th century hotel with a lovely cosy feel to it. The outside area to the rear was pretty with plenty of seating to catch some rays. Menu has a large... More

16th Century hotel set in lovely surroundings right next to campsite and the river wye. Have been here before in the past so was happy to come back again. Great choice of traditional pub dishes that are reasonably priced. Also good choice of Local ales and cidres. We would happily return in the future next time we are down this... More

We stumbled across this pub whilst visiting the butterfly farm, the food was served quickly and was a nice sized portion. Staff were friendly and the food was nice. We paid £40 for 1 adults and 3 children's mess and drinks which is fairly priced. Lovely gardens to sit in. Thank you
