Service great, good atmosphere. Steak was a bit over cooked but flavour and rest of meal made up for it. Would definitely recommend

A stylish, modern gastro-pub with attentive and skilled bar staff, with a good selection of gins and wines. The restaurant is large but in cosy sections upstairs, great service and excellent food. I had the roast beef as part of the Mother's Day menu which was a generous portion and cooked to perfection. 2 courses at just under £20, good value.

Table of 3, starters took 1 hour to arrive followed by another 40 minutes for main course which arrived cold. However server did remove a round of drinks off the bill and also gave desserts free of charge.

Great food and service for a quick bite before the cinema.
Due to the time we ate as the only diners it’s not fair to comment negatively to the atmosphere. Very attentive staff and reasonable prices.

Really enjoyed our trip to the Old House. The place itself is immaculate, it has a good menu and the food my wife and I had was excellently presented and tasted wonderful. Service was superb too, a chap called Rhys looked after us impeccably, very attentive yet not at all intrusive. Everyone was friendly and extremely professional. Highly recommended.

Started with a drink downstairs in the bar then headed upstairs to the restaurant for our meal. Both the bar and restaurant staff were very warm and greeted us nicely. During our meal Rhys and his crew looked after us for all our needs. We will definitely return again soon.

Really good food, however it wasn’t made clear that because we were early we were in between menus. It was like the kitchen was closed but it wasn’t. Bit confusing. Think we were the only diners up there at the time we went. Staff were very accommodating though.

We went as a family of three for Sunday lunch. We were pleasantly surprise to find it was not overcrowded and looked very clean. The staff were very polite and attentive and although the menu is a little limited, I have to say that the roast beef was fabulous. My son had the double beef burger with bacon which he said was one of the best burgers he had eaten in a while. All in all a very pleasant and relaxing experience.

An afternoon tea surprise for my 90 year-old mother in-law. Great food, exceptional service. Staff went out their way to ensure we had everything we needed including a chair with arms moved next to the woodburner. Could not of asked for better service - thank you.

A very pleasant surprise, having not visited the Old House since its transformation. My husband and I really enjoyed the food, surroundings and service in the upstairs restaurant. We will definitely be returning.

Really enjoyed a lush steak meal here, great wine selection as well! Meal was cooked to how we had asked and as a massive carnivore I love my steak done a specific way and the chef nailed it! Only thing lacking was atmosphere as it was virtually empty, probably something to do with it being a Wednesday though so will have to try it another day! Definitely going back here for another meal and would like to try the cocktails too!

I liked the food but didn't have what was on the website menu so I was disappointed. Also no choice of chips you only had thick ones which were like powder, I was hoping for a choice like sweet potato or thin

First time at the Old House, nice setting and cosy. Simple menu so you could be disappointed if you wanted a lot of choice, with portions not for the big eaters. We had a issue with one of the meals, which was disappointing as we have read goods things before we booked.

As a party of 4 we booked a Sunday lunch at the Old House at Home. The service, food and value for money exceeded our expectations and would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to lunch. I expect to attend the Old House at Home in the future to sample their evening menu.

didnt rate the afternoon tea. thought it was overpriced, i dont drink tea but brought my mum in law for a treat couldnt believe they changed me xtra for a glass of lemonade when i paid £33 for the afternoon tea which probably cost £10 to make. other places iv been to give u a choice of tea or soft drink. did a groupon offr not so long ago where it was £17 for 2 and u got double the amount of stuff and alot more choice wouldnt go again

Great meal - lovely Sunday roast and dessert. Good service - smart cosy restaurant, nice ambience. Only niggle that the background music was a little too loud and one of the items on the dessert menu was not available, even though it had not been taken off.

Was looking for a quiet area for a business conversation . They gave me a great table but more than that, the service was outstanding. Attentive without being overbearing. The food was timely and tasty. Have been there before ( not for business). And will be there again.

Having been there for a birthday previously I was looking forward to another enjoyable experience
Sorry to say the food was poor I had roast beef which was so tough I could not cut it and the meal was cold
Two people who had burgers left a lot as they said they were too dry
A disappointing experience

Had a table booked for 7.30pm on a Saturday and the list of items they had run out of meant there was little choice for what to eat.
We were very aware we weren't the only table unhappy with this!!

the menu want extensive but the food was to a high standard. My only issue is that when we finished dining the waitress was waiting in view of us to finish, so the staff could pack up.
Having the open kitchen was Ok, until they started cleaning and whilst we were sitting finishing our wine, all I could smell was fat from the fryer.
