“Eating out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

Although the food was very nice the service was so slow that we waited over 40mins for the starter, another 40mins for the main and the same again for the dessert and the food was only warm when it reached us and if the plates had ever been warmed you wouldn't have known it by they time they got to the table. The people on the next table left before the dessert was served because it took so long. The King Prawn cocktail was very sad, appox 6 king prawns on a couple of different green leaves with a seafood sauce, two pieces of bread and some butter, served with a paper serviette on the plate so that it stuck to the butter. Neither of the mains were particularly pretty but they were very tasty. The desserts were extremely nice.

Very nice friendly hotel. Pub downstairs, but very little noise. Fantastic room (room one) - lots of period details but very spacious. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

We'd never been to tutbury but really enjoyed it. Couple of cafes and newsagents nearby, as well as takeaway and Indian. About half an hour to Alton towers too.

Free wifi and fridge in room.

Room Tip: Room one overlooks high street, but very quiet. Very nice period features and large spacious room. B...

Some people like glass boxes and exercise bikes and swimming pools. You won't get that here but what you will find is a traditional timber framed English pub, an interior of warm, rich tones, from the wooden beams to the gleaming brass. Check out Room 4 with its twisting staircase, segmental doorway and adze-cut beams. This is an authentic late mediaeval building, yet one which boasts all modern trimmings from air con to plasma tv. My one and only caveat is the nocturnal noise emanating from a revolting-looking take-away on the other side of the road but if you close the windows it will sort this noise out.

It's quite simply the quintessential English hostelry and I love it.

It is definitely the staff that make this place. We stayed here with our baby son whilst attending our friends wedding. A cot was provided and they even went to buy a brand new cot bumper for him! All the staff (check-in, bar, waiting and cleaning staff) were incredibly helpful, friendly and polite and couldn't do enough to help. Our room was clean and the room rates were also very reasonable. Breakfast was tasty and parking was free. All in all, we were very pleased. Many thanks!

Myself and my husband stayed at the Ye Olde Dog & Partridge for two nights, with all of our family and friends for my brothers wedding at Tutbury Castle. They were very hospitable and the food was really nice, our room was comfortable and nicely laid out. I thought that they couldn't do enough to help, us and on the day of the wedding all of the staff came out to wave off the bride.....Thankyou

Found this completely by chance on a 'drive-by' wondering whether to extend our stay in the area or make for home - spotted the 'Good Night Inns' logo. Given a super 'heritage' room, spotlessly clean, nicely furnished in character but not overdone. Very welcoming and approachable staff. Good evening meals in the busy restaurant, and lots of choice at breakfast - also 2 breakfast prices, for continental and for traditional Full English. Good idea - I don't eat a big brekkie!
Hope to come again!

Room Tip: Only 9 rooms, but try it!
