Took my Mum for lunch after finding that our favourite pub was closed ( it was a monday)I had passed the hotel on a few occassions and thought it looked very nice, but assumed it would be very traditional and a bit too mainstream. We got my wife to check the reviews on Trip advisor which suggested something better and went for it. We are glad we did. The restaurant was at the rear in a delightful conservatory with a view onto the small but pretty gardens. The restaurant was plush in a minimalist sort of way. They had a very good fixed price menu served with a carafe of house wine, but we went a la carte. We were not disappointed. The bread was very tasty and I had whitebait with a sweet chilli sauce and silverskin onions. The whitebait was - in my mum's opinion-who is a whitebait afficianado- the best she had ever tasted. I wasn't sure about the accompaniment but it worked surprisingly well. For the main course we had whole fillet plaice in a beautifully creamy chowder sauce. The wiater was very attentive, knowledgeable and proud about the food and the wine list. A good selection of wine by the glass and coffee was nicely prepared at the end of the meal. Would definitely return.

The bigs bits like the location, the rooms and the service are a given. It is the detail that sets it apart. Free and easy wifi. Under floor heating. Enough power sockets including enough by the dressing table mirror for straighteners etc. decent water pressure for showers. All channel Sky TV. King size bed. Moulton Brown toiletries.

The food. Let me tell you about the food. I have sat at the table with the Queen, I have eaten in many famous Michelin Star Restaurants but the food at the Old House is the best. The breakfasts are epic in quality but the dinners are world class. Whoever the chef is, should be paid double! Spectacular.

We stayed through a Living Social offer, so a very good deal for 2 nights B & B. We arrived in time for Sunday lunch, a set price, and it was the best Roast Beef I have had in years. The Cheese Souffle starter was heaven on a plate and I could have eaten it every day for a week! The chef or chefs here are excellent - everything we had was better than great! Puddings and breakfasts wonderful too. We stayed two nights in a lovely room and nothing was too much trouble for anyone. Everything was spotlessly clean. I only wish we could have stayed longer and cannot wait to go back!

We stayed for one night last night and had a very enjoyable overnighter. The dinner was very good with excellent service and breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked, which makes a great change, as most hotel breakfasts are kept warm nowadays. The room was a good size and very quaint!! We would definitely stay again.

Stopped here for one night on business. Great staff - really friendly. Ate in the restaurant. Shouldn't be hard to cook a steak properly but you'd be surprised how many can't. This was perfect. Wine (as ever in Hotels) was expensive but they have a good range. Breakfast was superb. The hotel is in Wickham Square and is a wonderful setting with picturesque buildings all around. Thoroughly recommend a stay here.

I booked a table at this hotel's restaurant for a Birthday lunch for my husband. On arrival, we were met by a very cheerful and helpful waitress called Leona (hope I've spelt that correctly!). Unusually in this day and age, I was handed the menu without prices but as I was paying, my husband and I swapped! We decided on the Menu de Jour which was a very reasonable £18.75 for 3 courses and £15.75 for two courses. This included a carafe of wine and coffee. We had 2 courses, which was ample, particularly as we had a basket of bread which was replenished when my husband ran out of crackers to go with his starter of pate, which was delicious. We both had the toad in the hole which was also good, although it could have been hotter and this was pointed out at the time. Nonetheless, it was enjoyable. I had the cheese platter to end the meal, which was adequate and indeed we both had just the right amount to eat for a lunchtime. We both really enjoyed our experience and a lovely touch was a plate on which Happy Birthday had been written in chocolate with some little biscuits and chocolates and a couple of candles. I think it was very good value for money and we will be back for dinner some time. Thank you.
