Had a booking but upon arrival found the venue closed in complete darkness with no sign of anyone or a reason for closure. Went elsewhere. Very disappointed, no one contacted us in advance to advise of closure either.

I booked on-line a week ahead, received a request to confirm my booking a day before, which I did and yet when we arrived after a 40 minute journey with friends I discovered that the restaurant had been closed for 2 weeks! Thank you very much for your wonderful customer service and a completely ruined day, not to mention the cost of the petrol. Are you organising the House of Commons Christmas do?

I have been here before and it was great. So I recommended OCH as a Sunday lunch treat. The atmosphere was soulless, no background music, empty wine shelves, cold. Limited wine list, limited bottled soft drinks, no Diet Coke. I asked for roasted chicken and was informed it was half a chicken. What came out tasted fried and it was quarter chicken breast. The waitresses were so apologetic and what was clear was that management had lost interest. I'm not sure, but either this is new management or OCH is closing down. We made the best of it as the waitresses tried to make good of a bad job. They were also clearly frustrated............Lots of parking though.

Had to send two out of nine meals back. One had plastic on the pork and the other was a fish dish and a piece of bacon was found inside.

my booking wasn't recorded so upon arrival the staff had to scramble to find and set a table for us and the kitchen had not prepared for such a large group. I would put it to inexperience and not mind much as it happens sometimes, however as I later rang 3 hours before the booked time to add an extra person to the booking and was told that it would not be a problem I was not only upset with the restaurant but embarrassed as to everyone else it looked as though I had 'winged it'. however, the staff did a very good job to recover from this mishap and the food was delicious, I would 100% recommend and defiantly return.

Service was really slow. Only one person working behind the bar. Had to go and find someone so we could place our food order. Ordered a side of onion rings which they forgot

Without a doubt the worst meal our family have had at the olde coach house. It has always been my favourite place to eat for birthdays etc. It was my birthday. No atmosphere, restaurant was virtually empty. One of my daughters had to send her chicken back, undercooked. Other meals poor value, burgers dry. My meal very small portion.Very disappointing

How poor to receive a call in the morning of our booking to say that the card machine was broken so bring cash. To then drive 70miles to meet a friend for dinner, pull into the car park to receive another call to say the restaurant was closed due to a fridge breakdown. Can’t understand why we were told so late in the day. Won’t bother going back here.

Myself and my colleagues have eaten at the Olde Coach House on several occasions with no issue. This time there was a lack of staff and we did wait longer than expected to order food. When it came though it was lovely other than the Lasagne being 'warm' not hot.

Great food, great service, however calling to say your card machine is down and not having a full current menu up on your website in these days when we don’t carry around large quantities of cash because everywhere takes card now almost made me cancel my reservation. Without the full menu there’s no way to know how much cash to bring and no other (legitimate) business expects you to turn up with around £100 in cash these days.

Please sort out your records. I have not made any reservations at the Coach House. I replied to your first email pointing out your error, and this is the second since then. Not impressed .

Much improved from last visit ( a good few years ago). Service very good, choice good but rather pricy, for example £14 or £15 for a small salmon salad.

Hi Really disappointed with the service and meal, but I booked it to meet friends and didn't want to complain at the time. The menu had changed and didn't offer the choicewe expected and had expereinced when we had eaten here previouslt. Not sure if the pub has changed hands, but won't be booking again will find an alternative venue for our next get together. Very disappointed and slightly embarassed as I recomended it. regards Jeannette

Thank you so much for a fantastic service and accommodating us all last Saturday! We’ll definitely come back for a meal! Everyone has enjoyed the evening at the Old Coache House.

Service was poor. Table next to us arrived much later but had their starters served before we’d been asked for our order We were sat in a side room and I was facing a window where the sun was blazing right in my face, asked to pull blind but it was broken. One of party ordered gammon - I would expect this to be hot but it was served cold (it should state this on the menu). We asked if bread came with oils and waitress said yes but when it arrived there was no oils. Really disappointing birthday celebration meal

It’s definitely getting better, we have noticed a lot of improvements including a more extensive Sunday menu, snacks behind bar, food specials and improvements to the decor. Thanks most appreciated, we will definitely use more frequently

Service terrible. Online menu was viewed before the booking was made and we were given a different menu on arrival, which was very disappointing. We were placed in the bar area, where we found the table was not set even though we were told it was ready for us. The atmosphere was not what we expected as we were sat it the bar area. We then asked to be moved to the restaurant area as expected upon arrival. Once we had moved we saw that the restaurant area was empty (bar one party) with plenty of available tables, which I am confused why we weren't offered a choice of where we would like to sit? As we were served our soup we were not asked if we required anything else to which there was no salt and pepper on the table, and I had to collect it myself from another table as the waitress just walked off after serving us. Staff took too long to clear our mains plates and to offer us the bill. I had to walk to the bar where I passed the waitress and politely asked for the bill. She acknowledged my request to pay at the bar but did nothing but carry on wiping a table. When we approached the bar there was nobody there which forced to to wait even longer. My wife and I chose the Old Coach House to celebrate her birthday and to spend a rare evening alone. We returned home very disappointed with the evening. I will never recommend or dine here again until standards can be met.

Awful, waited 40 minutes for a drink. Booked table for 9 people but altered it to 10 in the week, on arrival table still set for 9. No extra cutlery was brought! Pokey table for 10. Pub was empty, cold, no atmosphere. Food was rubbish! Potted prawn & crab, lacked both. Caesar salad was poor value for money. Deserts weren’t served with what it said on menu. When we booked it said table had to be available at 9:45 but there was no one else there! Service was diabolical Will not be returning Drinks are extortionate too, especially the soft drinks! I could go on & on!
