Staying Safe with Us


Updated following guidance on the 12th July 2021.
We will continue to review all changes weekly and adapt our service accordingly.



As we edge closer to the relaxation of the restrictions we want to remind you that our highest priority is the safety of our guests and the Troupe. We will continue to deliver the same attention to detail and personalised service that you are used to here at The Old Stocks Inn but will be stepping cautiously into what comes after July 19th.

We will retain some of the measures that have been adopted over the last year to keep you and our teams safe so that you can confidently enjoy a stay with us.


If you are joining us after Monday 19th July, we have retained a number of changes to make you aware of:

General Hygiene

Dining Changes

Operational Changes

All procedures and policies will be constantly reviewed and updated where necessary in line with government guidelines. We will try and evolve into the “normal” service as soon as we safely can.


When can I stay at The Old Stocks Inn?

We reopened on Monday 17th May 2021 for bedrooms and dinner reservations only. Please be aware that this is conditional and subject to change in line with Government guidance. We have opened up bookings until December 2022.

Please note: our Front desk is open daily from 8am until 5pm. 

After that, please drop us an email: and the team will be in touch the following day.


Can we book into The Bolt Hole?

In advance of the hotel reopening, we expect to reopen our Self-Catering property on the 12th April 2021. We have availability across the summer and have also opened up bookings until December 2022. All reservations can be made online for The Bolt Hole.


Can I book a table for dinner?

We will be operating with a reduced number of tables in our restaurant, so times and availability are limited. We are taking Dinner bookings only in our restaurant for non-hotel guest from 17th May 2021. We will not accept walk-in bookings, all tables must be reserved in advance. 


What happens if I need to cancel my booking?

Hotel bookings on flexible rates can be cancelled or transferred up to 48hrs prior to arrival with no charge. If you need to cancel or amend your booking within 48hrs of arrival due to COVID-19, we can transfer your booking to another suitable date, however rates may differ between dates.

Any cancellations or amendments within 48hrs, that are not as a direct result of COVID-19, will result in our retaining the charge for the first night of your stay.

Can I come in for just a drink?

Our bar is open Monday-Friday from 3pm and from 11am Satuday & Sunday. We welcome guests and non-residents who have booked a table in the restaurant to join us for a pre-dinner drink. If you would like a drink only, we will accommodate if there is availability of tables to be able to provide the required table service. We do not offer bookings for our bar.

Will everything be open as usual?

Hopefully, we can remove more of these restrictions in late Summer as more people become vaccinated. We will continue to review these changes each week against government guidelines.
