Decided to book a table for dinner as we have not been to the restaurant in many years. Was definitely a good decision as the food and service was excellent. My wife has an egg allergy and our waitress Leah was very understanding and could not have been more helpful in organising what my wife could eat. Also it is... More

I highly recommend The Old Inn crawsfordsburn, the management and staff are trained to a very high standard. I visited this establishment a number of times recently and have been delighted by the quality and flavour of the food, selection of menus throughout the day with varied price ranges.

Stayed there recently - it was OK. But should and could be better. The food was tasty but at dinner one starter was missing the goats cheese - this was mentioned and a small dish of cheese was delivered. Mains were problematic too - fillet was ordered but sirloin was delivered . Again the staff were apologetic and fetched a... More

Dear Bob S, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. Thank you for highlighting your dining issues, these have been shared with both the front and back of house teams.

Dear arlenemcateer, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor.

Myself and my wife stayed here for a wedding and I have to say we could not fault the hotel. It was first class, the room was excellent and is very cost effective, well worth the money. The staff were brilliant all weekend and couldn't do enough to help with anything. I would go back tomorrow no questions asked.

I would just like to thank all the staff at The Old Inn, they could not have been more a tentative, they where fantastic, the food was very good, rooms very clean. An all round blinding experience. A large number of our party suggested making it an annual event, they where so impressed.
