The location is lovely especially on a sunny day. We turned up for lunch on a Tuesday and within 30mins the car park was full. We ordered off the main menu and the food was quick but nothing special. They serve proper home cooked chips just like from a chippy. Not sure why but on a plate of hot food... More

Minted lamb was good but steak sandwich was very poor, I have seen more meat on a dog bone. It was busy and I think threy take advantage of this, however if you are looking for meat avoid the...

We went in the side restaurant for their lunchtime menu. Excellent Italian meals. I had garlic stuffed mushrooms and gammon and pineapple with a variety of different vegetables. Best meal I had for ages. £22 for two of us including drinks.

In that part of the word and decided to drop in on Old Nells, we hadn't been there for a good while. Old Nells is a picturesque Thatched pub in a Thatched development by the canal. Inside it's very quaint and atmospheric. There was quite a wait for food, but it was very good when it came. The only gripe... More

Nice, very good atmosphere, I would go again. They are very busy most of the times, I do prefer to go when less busy. It's more than a pub, they do have very nice food, lovely. You can chose from a vast menu of good food, drinks, beers, etc. Every month they have a different theme going on, great for... More
