Blackthorn _ left this review about The Old Inn

As it’s name suggests, a delightful old inn, tucked away down a quiet cul-de-sac. It’s certainly not one that’s going to attract much in the way of passing trade, but nonetheless seems to keep quite busy. Whenever we go in the main bar is invariably busy, presumably with locals who all know each other.

The main bar has a flagstone floor, plenty of wooden beams and rather unusually lots of leather straps hanging from the ceiling to grab hold of, like you get on some railway carriages. Useful if you’ve had one too many and are swaying a bit, perhaps? There’s a slightly cosier snug off to the left, and although this had a plasma screen up in the corner, this was not in use on our visit. To the right is a tiled bar with some wood panelling on the walls and several tables and chairs that is more geared up for dining, with all the tables being laid up for food. There’s plenty of pictures on the walls and some big old fireplaces, although I’m not sure if these are actually used or not. There’s a double sided fireplace separating the main bar from the one on the right that looks as though it may have been a bread oven at one time, and now houses some type of wood burner. There is a beer garden out the back, and usefully a serving hatch directly in to the bar.

Food wise, the menu offered a decent selection of pub grub dishes such as scampi & chips, liver & bacon, sausage & mash and so on as well as a small specials board. Most of the main courses were around the £9/£10 mark, and our lasagne and Hunter’s Chicken were both decent and tasty dishes.

Beers on tap were Young’s Special, St. Austell’s Tribute and Butcombe. Ciders meanwhile were a trio from Thatcher’s, with their Dry, Gold and Haze.
