An outstanding guesthouse with an exquisite AA Dining Award winning restaurant, The Olde Coach House oozes period charm and a rich history.
Originally listed under the name ‘Ascebi’ (as in, ‘the settlement with ash trees’) in the Domesday Book in 1086, The Olde Coach House has seen more than its fair share of owners. Once bequeathed to Hugh de Grentemaisnil by William the Conqueror, this once proud estate has changed hands from revolutionaries like Robert Catesby, leader of the 1605 Gunpowder Plot, to aristocrats and nobles alike.
Retaining this sense of deep history, the inn's restaurant, The Olde Coach House is adorned with a collection of tools and utensils from the past, along with comforting open log fireplaces that, in the winter, are always burning. This splendid décor is more than matched by a superb food offering in the restaurant, which serves up a plethora of irresistible modern English, Internationally inspired and classic British dishes.
Awarded an AA 2016 Dining Award, along with numerous other recognitions and recommendations, the restaurant at The Olde Coach House is an excellent eatery, which uses only local suppliers for their ingredients. Diverse grazing boards, stone baked homemade pizzas, succulent steaks, juicy burgers, pub classics and exemplary main courses fill the menu, with delights ranging from the classic Portuguese Espetada, a rich selection of ‘hanging kebabs’ with marinated meats and fish, to the delectable Ashby pork tasting plate, complete with roast belly pork, bacon, potato terrine and grilled sirloin.
