Booked this as a anniversary dinner which was very intimate in lovely surroundings albeit a tad too quiet! Food was excellent and was made to feel very welcome by the owner. Can highly recommend this as a lovely place to eat and will definitely be back.

Some friends invited us to join them for Sunday lunch. When we arrived the car park seemed empty and when we entered the dining room we realised that it was just us!

I was on buisness in Swindon and could not find a premier Inn which I normally stay at and The Old School House came up on the search.

Between Christmas and New Year we had a family gathering here after having a walk just down the road in Lydiard Park. The booking was for 2pm. There were 10 of us (8 adults & 2 children). We were the only people eating which was fine because we were quite a large group and it allowed us to be more...

Stayed here on business and the scenery is outstanding. Very remote but this place has it all. Friendly owners and the food is out of this world no messing about here just really fine food. NOTHING is too much trouble and all for £45 per person.
