Delicious fresh food served by friendly staff, creamy pints of Guinness flowing and all enjoyed in a warm welcoming atmosphere. One of the top live music venues, with THE HOOLEY held on the 1st Monday each month. Highly Recommended by all the team at Top Traders Guide

Old Coach Inn is always extremely busy so ensure you ring ahead to book a table. Excellent value. Superb customer service. Good selection to appease all tastes and budgets.

A couple of my colleagues are regulars here and have been putting this place forward for the Xmas dinner for a few years. We all agreed this year and off we went for our booking at 6ish on a Thursday night. I was a bit nervous about it as the regulars had talked so much about it and I thought... More

Excellent food, excellent staff, great music afterwards. To say they went the extra mile is an understatement. They went above and beyond board to make the newly engaged couple feel special. The rest of us weren't waiting long before our food order was in front of us. After the meal we went downstairs to listen to the live music and... More

The starter of smoked duck was lovely but there was very little duck on it, my husband got just three wings for his starter, my main course was quite cold, no warm plates either. The veg... More

Had a couple of meals here over a weekend visit. The food was very good on both occassions and served promptly. The staff were very helpful. The bar area was better than the restaurant, but only because there were only two of us - i am sure the restaurant was fine for large groups. The bar area had a roaring... More

Great atmosphere, average to good ribeye steak, manager fixed me up with bed and breakfast in his place right across the road, cheap and cheerful which was fine as I had to wait half an hour to get his attention

We went to have a family feed. Service was good as there were a number of people looking after us. The food was very nice and we did not have to wait very long for it which was handy as we had a small child with us. He also got a pocketful of chocolate mints to take home with him.

Thank Sam518
