It's great to say... We have reopened our doors!
We find ourselves in Tier 2 which means we can happily open our doors to you, albeit with a few restrictions…
The latest guidelines mean that we’re only able to accept tables of single households inside the pub and up to 6 people from mixed households for those brave enough to sit outside. Also, as much as we wish you could just pop in for a pint, for now, we’re only allowed to serve alcohol when you eat with us. Last orders are at 10pm, so we’ll be ringing bell around 9.45pm and we need to ensure you’re fed, watered and heading safely home by 11pm.
Thanks as ever for your support, we look forward to seeing you all soon.
The Old Orchard must have one of the finest views in the whole of Christendom: you cannot see another building in the whole panorama, and yet amazingly, it lies within the M25.
We think it's pretty special inside the pub as well, with open fires, good honest furniture, a well-stocked bar at the centre of things and a friendly, chatty atmosphere.
If you'd like to join us with a larger party, we have a private dining room available. It can be booked for dining groups of up to 22 people by prior arrangement for either lunch or dinner. Just ask and we will let you know more.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
Thanks to our customers recommending us, you'll find us in the:
