The Old Store is all about experiencing an escape from the everyday. It's got a cheeky sense of discovery etched into the walls and well worn floors. Sit back and enjoy a complimentary port whilst enjoying the great sound of the retro stereo, whether it be in front of the fire or outside on the spacious deck. The kitchen can live up to most demands for service especially those of the entertaining bent. However there is no pressure to cook with multiple pubs and the city centre restaurants within walking distance.
