When can I stay at The Old Stocks Inn?

We reopened on Thursday 3rd December 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 2021.

Demand has been extremely high for all areas of our business and our team are working very hard to deal with all enquiries as quickly as possible, but we do suggest that where possible you make your hotel booking online. 

Please note: our Front desk is open daily from 8.30am until 5.30pm. 
After that, please drop us an email: and the team will be in touch the following day.


Can we book into The Bolt Hole?

Alongside the hotel we expect to reopen our Self-Catering property on the 3rd December. We have availability across the summer and have also opened up bookings until December 2021. 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 is limited. We are taking Dinner bookings only in our restaurant for non-hotel guest from 3rd December. 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 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?

We are not able to offer bar service unless you are dining with us at the hotel. We welcome guests and non-residents to book a table in the restaurant, we will then provide you with table service for drinks during your visit.

Will everything be open as usual?

Upon reopening in December, we will not be opening the Café or Cocktail Lounge in the beginning. This decision has been taken to ensure we can operate safely with our guests and also ensure distancing in smaller back of house areas. We will continue to review these changes each week against government guidelines.
