“Good pub grub...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Went to Owd Nells for a meal on way back home from shopping...
It's a good location in between lots of towns, so good for a meet up.
Food is pretty good, I had a fish platter and ordered chips as didn't think it'd be much, but it was a good little plate full of different fish served with a nice chunk of bread.
Other diners enjoyed their meals. The ice cream is excellent value, lots of choice and plenty for the price too.
No complaints from us. It must be doing something right, it's always busy!

“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Regular visitors to Owd Nells with the family. Great relaxing location, Good service and helpful staff. The steak and kidney pudding really nice.
Only criticism after our meal went outside to have a drink and there was ice cream on the floor and bins over flowing, with wasps all over it.

Second visit to Owd Nell's, enjoyed the food as much as the first time 2 years ago. The Steak and Kidney Pudding is yummy. Not had it before mmmmm. Generous portions. Can't fault it.

“Great location, tired, poor standards”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

They are not shy with their prices yet the state of the place, litter left lying about, wasps gathering everywhere due to poor hygiene and tired tired looking smelly 'tavern'. High price and poor standards hmm. Food was ok but pricey. Brilliant location and buildings, such a shame. Won't rush back.

“Excellent lunch time value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Visited guys restaurant for lunch with my daughter. Restaurant very busy and lots of atmosphere. Menu was £7.95 for 2 courses which was excellent value . We had mushrooms and then sea bass. Both were lovely and plentiful !!! Waiters miserable and surly but waitress friendly. Would go again as value for money .
