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

One of my favourite places and never been disappointed. Chose a midweek trip as it can get busy. We usually go into the main restaurant but after a tip decided to try the pizzeria. Any two courses off the main menu for £8. 95. I had garlic mushrooms and a steak sandwich with salad. My husband had duck pate and... More
