“Friendly, Pleasant and Welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

I stay here a couple of nights most weeks for work and have done so for the best part of a year. I keep coming back because it's a nice place to stay. The atmosphere is as my title. The food is great value and the beer is good. What more do I need? Fancy hotel decor? Nah! Haut cuisine food? Nah! Fine wines? Nah! I do enjoy and can afford all those but without a friendly welcome it's meaningless. It's not the Hospitality trade for nothing. And 'Mein hosts' are exactly that! Cheers, Garrath.

At the Olde House there are a wide range of drinks available aswell as a comprehensive food menu with meal's to suit everyone. The quiz on a Tuesday and Sunday run by Gary Senior is definitely worth going to and the atmosphere in the pub is always warm and welcoming. Staff are always helpful and the food is well priced and tasty, particularly the steaks which are always cooked to an excellent standard. I would recommend the pub and hotel to anyone and visit it whenever I can.

My father in law took us here for a family meal. When we ordered I found the lady taking our order to be a very miserable woman, to the point of rude. The glare she gave another member of staff while she was serving us, made me most uncomfortable, if looks could kill! Our food was served in good time and was pleasant enough pub fayre. The menu had a good range and there was something even for my fussy vegetarian children to eat. It would just have been nice to have had a smile and a welcome while we ordered.

The Olde House is a pub offering a range of beers, wines, spirits and usual pub drinks supplemented by good, honest food at a fair price. The hotel facilities are comprehensive and offers exceptional value.A wide range of functions can be catered for, (Meetings, Conferences, Weddings), The hosts Gerard & Julie Wood maintain a well run establishment, supported by a great team where everyone is made to feel valued and important. where nothing is considered to be too much trouble.
I have stayed here many times and thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: All rooms are fitted to the same standard although as the Olde House is a working public house you m...

We have just moved to the outskirts of Chesterfield and after a hard day of lugging furniture we set out to find a takeaway and drove (almost) past The Olde House....I'm pleased we stopped!!
They serve a wide range of drinks (including a very drinkable Rioja!) and the meals were more than reasonable for the price. They seemed relatively busy but service was swift and very friendly (if this is typical of the Chesterfield people, then we made the right choice of where to move!). There was a nice atmosphere in the place and it is very spacious, with many different area's and 'cubby's' to suit all.
Our overall experience was very positive and we will be back! Apparently they are part of Marstons and if we sign up for email offers we can also get regular money off a free drink vouchers (as the friendly Manageress explained)
I have to say I was a touch surprised having come on here to write this review to find that some other people had had such a different experience and wondered how much provoking they had to do to get the response they claim to have received!

We arrived around 16:00 and placed our order (of 3 sandwiches) after waiting at the bar for a good 10 minutes and been ignored, over a hour later and our table had not been cleared of the previous diners plates and our food had not arrived, my partner went to the bar to ask when it would be ready and was told another 10 minutes and 'what would we expect when they only had 1 member of staff working' we decided to wait and bite our tongue, another half a hour passed in which our table had been cleared by another rude member of staff who said she could only do what she could do (we wasnt disputing) we then decided to leave and have our bank holiday snack elsewhere but not before letting all in listening distance know how annoyed we where, we then found that several other tables had also been waiting hours and not very happy, all in all a complete waste of time and the staff need a lesson in customer care
