Children and minors
Old Hall is essentially an adult's environment, although children of the well-behaved variety are welcome. We do have baby changing facilities, and a few booster seats are available.
Prams and pushchairs
In our larger rooms we are able to accommodate prams and pushchairs, although some of the smaller areas are too constricted to allow us to do so.
We do take bookings, but we try to make sure that there is room for customers who are not able to book in advance, so if you have not made a reservation, it's not the end of the world. If there are no tables free we run a waiting list from behind the bar.
Please make bookings by calling or using our online bookings calendar link at the top of the page. Unfortunately we are not able to take bookings via email or facebook.
We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are on a first come first served basis.
Sadly due to our operation we are not able to cater for very large parties or groups.
First off, life revolves around the bar, so that's where to head for drinks, menus and to find out where you're sitting if you've booked.
If a table isn't reserved you're welcome to sit at it and have a bite to eat or drink. If you can't find a table, ask and we'll try to find one for you.
Inside - someone will pop over and take your order. Outside - please find a table, note its number and then order at the bar when you're ready.
Dogs of the well behaved and on-the leash variety are welcome in certain areas of the pub.
If you are booking a table and bringing a dog please make us aware so we can assign a specific table for you.
Private dining room
We have a private dining room upstairs. It is not a meeting room as such but can be booked for dining groups of up to twelve people by prior arrangement for either lunch or dinner. For further information please contact us.
We're afraid we are unable to accommodate wedding parties.
If you are eating outside it is a great help if you could make a note of your table number before ordering. By the way, could you please keep tops on and shoes on at all times. This applies to blokes as well.
As a little reminder, a Meal Ticket is received for each main course or light bite purchased at full price. Six tickets can then be exchanged for any main course up to £12 from Monday to Thursday (excluding Bank Holidays, set menus, ticketed events and click and collect).
