Stayed for two nights. Hotel is very old, parts date back to 1570, Diarist room on 2nd floor was fine, ancient, black and white, (although kingsize bed sloped out from the centre!) and warm. Shower also fine; tea and proper coffee available in room. Breakfast was mainly from locally sourced ingredients. We ate in both evenings and food was reasonable... More

Do not know how this establishment can charge over 11 pound for their ploughmans is beyond me. One small slice of apple, some salad leaves, a smallish chunk of cheddar, two small slices of ham and rustic bread. No butter and when requested was provided plastic solid butter pack that could not spread. For the price some rolled butter on... More

On getting out of the shower I discovered glass on the bathroom floor. 20 minute's to get served for drinks after a 10 minute wait to put food order in, only to be told we could have orderd drinks with food. Nachos as a starter were fantastic, the rest of the food was poor, worst steak and salad ever. Pie... More

A dad walks in to a bar with two children .....no this isn't a joke and the food, service and atmosphere were all seriously brilliant at this old coaching inn. The place is rustic and ' oldy worldly ' with lots of areas to find a quiet spot to relax. Real fire in the conservatory and stone flag stone floors,... More

Called in for lunch on a dismal day. Both had pies with different fillings. They were very tasty. Really like the building and the gardens are well kept. Always feel relaxed here.

We stopped by for a simple coffee but the afternoon stop off lasted into 40 minutes thanks to the relaxing surrounding and fine friendly service. The food menus suggest another visit sometime soon. Thank you, Old Court.

The setting is lovely which is what drew us to this place on the final day of our holiday. The food was awful, the children's pasta was too much for an adult let alone a child and it was watery and bland, and tagliatelle isn't really the easiest pasta for a child to eat. The fish fingers were large but... More

Thank you for your review which I read with great interest and sadness. The day you visited was sometime at the beginning of the children's holidays when we were exceptionally busy. On the day itself (some 8 weeks ago or more) you said that your husband "enjoyed" his pie and that your problem was with the vegetables, there was no... More

Being a local it's somewhere we pop occasionally for a Sunday dinner as you don't need to book. We ordered starters which came out quite quickly, however for deep fried Brie you would have expected it to be warm but it wasn't, we carried on and ate it any way but it was also over cooked. We then waited ages... More
