About Olde Coach House
Our restaurant is a character room with wood panels and low beams and is set on two levels, perfect for romantic tables for two or large parties up to 40 people.
Our main casual dining area is located in the main Pub and has loads of character with flagstone floors, real open log fires and low beams.
Unfortunately there was no gas so we had a very restricted menu. It would have been good to be informed on arrival of this problem.
Superb and reasonably priced. A family party of 7, we arrived early, table was ready, service was faultless and food excellent. Next time we need a meeting place, we will look no further than OCH
The starters were good. The steaks were great. The chips were the worst we have ever tasted. What really was disappointing was that (as guests of the hotel) we weren't told that service finished at 10pm on Sunday, and it was only when the waitress came to ask if we "wanted another drink from the bar before last orders" that we found out! We had invited family to dine with us, as we hadn't seen them for quite some time and had lots to catch up on. We didn't expect tp have to cut our evening short. The dining areas were cold - both in the evening and particularly at breakfast. That is why I have rated "atmosphere" low. Staff are friendly, and try to help where they can. Breakfast was lovely, and the lady serving breakfast was very pleasant and helpful.
Unfortunately we had to send our food back ( fish and chips) chips were black and soggy . We were offered a replacement meal which we decided to have Roast beef , this was first class. Also we were not charged which we didn't expect but was a good
Sadly we didn’t have a good experience. We were a party of 15 and I had pre ordered all the food even down to how the 7 steaks were to be cooked. One ordered the chicken ceasar dakd with no anchovies which I stated several times, it came with anchovies and when we pointed this out the waitress was very apologetic and took it straight back to the kitchen, it then came back and they had just picked a few out leaving others and the taste in the salad, not good. One of the steaks was very fatty and couldn’t be eaten. Our waitress was really lovely and very apologetic. They didn’t charge for the two meals and gave a complimentary ice cream which never arrived!! Although we did get a bottle of prosecco!
Wonderful staff. Great sevice.
Really nice place and the food was great.
Paper napkins are not classy! We were not shown the children’s menu so had no idea there were options for our 5 yr old. We’re not offered condiments with our roasts, had to ask for them. Is meat portion weighed as big (lovely) portion but how will that affect your costings Roasts very very good though but worried what paper napkins and omissions in service might indicate regarding management Staff very very friendly and helpful but just need more training in basic thing like offering kids menu etc
Generally good - Whitebait Great! Liver & Onions & Pork Belly Good.... ...but it might be an idea to offer the Jus in a separate jug on the side - allowing customers to add as little/much as they like..? (one piece of Liver slightly under/sinewy)
A great find. We met half way with friends and it was perfect. Very nice lunch menu, lovely staff, who were friendly and knowledgeable, good service and excellent food so we will be back.
Stayed 2 nights. Room was Ok, furnished nice but small if there was 2 people staying. Breakfasts poor. Coffee was cold on both mornings. Cooked breakfast was not good. 2nd morning they had run out of beans! Then go to the nearest shop and by some. Just NOT acceptable. Food last night was rubbish too. The saving grace are the staff, but the hotel is very poorly run by the Management team. You new it was a Bank Holiday. It didn’t creep up and surprise you. Get the bar stocked up so you don’t run out and make sure the food you serve is quality. Very disappointed. Beneath the nice facade is a shoddy hotel and you can’t hide behind that.
Very good service and food, Although was a reduced menu on Saturday night to the usual one, All good will return.
I booked a table for 4 and on arrival was quickly shown to our table had very prompt service and exceptional food . Jess H and Georgia looked after us impeccably. There are a few negative reviews on Tripadvisor though knowing how popular "OCH" is I think they are due to the "FEW" whom are never satisfied. Have been using "OCH" since moving to Barby 3 years ago and will continue to as love the experience always.Baggy.
A wonderful restaurant, serving excellent food using really flavoursome ingredients - thoroughly recommend it without hesitation
Lovely food, well presented... but the evening was completely ruined by the absolutely shocking service! When we arrived my girlfriend and I went straight up in the restaurant, but despite the dining room being full, failed to find a single member of staff. So we went down to the bar, and again although there were already several customers waiting, no staff in sight. Eventually one did show up, and after about 10 minutes I ordered our drinks, and informed her that we had a table booked. She said OK and that she would charge the drinks to the table, before walking away. Assuming that she was coming round to show us to our table, or get someone else who would we waited for several minutes... but no, she had just wandered off!! We then took ourselves back up into the restaurant and this time manged to locate a young girl who seemed to work there, and after telling her that we had a table booked, but that it seemed to be some kind of a secret as to its location, she found a waiter who showed us to our table. Now the menu and the food itself were both very good, no complaints at all, but unfortunately the shoddy service did not stop there... Despite our drinks being empty for a good 15 mins, twice, no one asked if we would like another drink, and then after our mains had been cleared away no one came back to ask if we would like to see a dessert menu (which we would have ordered) or a coffee, or even if we would like the bill! So we sat for another good 30 mins being completely and utterly ignored by the staff, who seemed a lot more concerned with setting out the breakfast cereal for the morning than actually waiting on any of their diners! In the end I had to go and actually ask for the bill, at which point the waiter asked if everything had been OK. So I explained how disappointed we had been with the service and how we had had no drinks or desserts offered and generally felt completely invisible... and as a final straw, his response was to simply say "OK." and then walk away!!! I can assure you that it most definitely wasn't.
Only gave the atmosphere a 4 as it wasn't busy, great Sunday lunch
One of the finest pubs in Northamptonshire
Omg we love this pub ! Not only because I lived there back in the 80,s but the food is to die for well done defo coming again
Food was not good at all! It was very over cooked. My partner was also very sick today after the food last night. Not impressed at all which is ashame as we came for Christmas a few years ago and the food was lovely
This was a very disappointing visit to OCH. We had visited for the first time a couple of weeks ago in a party of four. On that occasion, the food was on the whole good, though service was extremely slow -- 7.30 booking, mains arrived after 9 pm (the cost of a couple of desserts was taken off the menu in recognition of hat). My partner was so impressed by the steak and ale pie that she was keen to go back. Big mistake! The first serving of the pie had a crust that was impossible to cut with a knife. When we pointed this out, a second serving arrived quite quickly with a largely uncooked crust. To add to the unpleasantness, we spent most of the meal batting away flies. We were given a free dessert and a free coffee when we expressed our disappointment, but we still had to pay for the inedible pie. We won't be going back.
Chef is great!
Wonderful family Sunday lunch. We'll be back again soon!
Service and food quality not as good as previous visit 4 months ago.
Not the first time I have been. Excellent service and food. Lovely pub.
