Stayed here in mid Feb about two weeks after a major refurbishment of the hotel. Very nice rooms – by far the nicest & newest of the 6 or so Old English Inns we’ve stayed at. We had room 1 – not an overly large room but nicely decorated . Very high quality bed linen and nice soft furnishings. Shower was A1, extra-large cubicle – 1 ½ - 2X as big as normal UK size, with overhead “rain- shower” type shower head as well as more common hose showerhead, in a good sized shower room. There were a couple of teething problems following the refurb. but these were quickly remedied by helpful & friendly staff.
When we booked through central reservations they did point out that this is a “lively pub” which may also have a function going on which wasn’t a problem having been forewarned. So it must be noted for those not given that advise that this isn’t your usual type of Old English Inn as it is very popular and got very busy on the Friday & Saturday we stayed and has music at a “trendy” volume, not a quite cosy country inn. The restaurant was separate from the bar and didn’t have any music to allow conversation. The bar does have an extension, (to its opening hours) and as our room was right above the main entrance/exit we did hear people leaving the pub in the “wee small hours” There is double and secondary double glassing in the room which did seem to work very well to keep noise out but being “fresh air fiends” we had ours open. We eat in the restaurant on one evening and felt a little disappointed as we both felt the food let the hotel down a little. Nothing actually wrong with it but what we had seemed a little “lack-lustre” It is only pub food but wasn’t as good as other Old English Inns we’ve eaten at. The staff were very nice. However there are at least 6 Indian restaurants, a Chinese, a fish n chip shop and several other pubs all which seemed to serve food so there is plenty of “choice” elsewhere in the town. Despite the number of eateries in this quite small town, don’t expect to just walk in and get a table. Everywhere was packed on Saturday night.
