Used to be one of the best Pubs/Hotels around set in a lovely village, been going to the "OCH" for 25 years, seen 5 different Managers come and go, but it still was able to get the public through the doors. Now sadly possibly the worst Manager that ever took it on. Staff have always been very polite and helpful, over the past couple of months Pub has been closed from time to time without any forewarning, if you rang the Pub on a "closed" day voicemail said will come back to you as soon as possible. The place needs someone prepared to spend some money on the place, gardens are pathetic, some of the outside furniture needs binning, inside things have changed for example the furniture has been revamped for the better, overall Clair and her staff have done a very good job, sad to see it fall into a state of depression, maybe we need to go to the Hall and plot another gunpowder day. RIP
Only about 3 miles from home but not eaten here since major renovation some years ago. Early dinner for 2 on a Friday evening. Shortly after 6 pm the place was virtually deserted. First impression is modern, but cold decor and a little bit tired. We were offered a table that was in the draught from the door and subsequently moved to table 25 which is in a dark alcove, complete with a sad neglected plant on the sticky table with two water glasses (no water was offered). Menu arrived and orders placed, but the "beef hot pot" I ordered was only available for lunch so we changed order and went with one simple fish and chips and one ham,egg and chips plus bread and olives to start. Started was not a great start; a few olives, bread was one role and butter was straight from fridge and rock hard....£7 ! Mains arrived. Fish was a small piece and all batter. Chips were cold and soggy, peas just horrid. Ham, egg and chips was better, but ditto soggy chips. Overall nothing to recommend the "OCH" (OCH ??), not a great place to eat, transport cafe quality food (which is a disservice to good transport cafes) at restaurant prices and with service that was only just adequate. Feels like the owners have taken their profit after the refurbishment, allowed the place to decline in every respect and now it's a disappointment. Positives: Beer was fine. Ashby St Ledgers is beautiful small village
Turned up today at 12:30 and the car park was empty- except for a large skip. Sign on the door 'Sorry- cash only'. Walked the full length of the bar- no staff anywhere to be seen. Could hear voices of other guests. Eventually someone appeared- there's only one Menu- usually we've eaten from the lunch only menu. The seating in the bay window is in need of recovering- using black making tape to cover up the cracks. Behind the bar, looked pretty sparse too. Food was mediocre. I was last there over Easter & and the place was buzzing and food was great. So very disappointed.
I’m not sure that I have ever experienced a pub go so spectacularly downhill as this one has. This pub was incredible years ago, people came from miles to visit and Ashby was so well known because of the pub. The pub is now shabby, the beer is awful, the food is mediocre and the pub often shuts early or doesn’t open at all. The garden is a complete mess and it’s just so, so sad 😞 what an utter shame.
Stayed here a couple of years ago on our way back from Bournemouth. Thought it was great so decided to stay again on our way back to Bournemouth. Just cant fault the place. We stayed in the same room and it was just as good a few years later. The evening meal was excellent and although a small menu it was very good. We both slept really well and the breakfast was superb. Best scrambled eggs ever!! We booked at last minute and the price was very good. Great value, spotlessly clean and brilliant service.
Can Recommend. Have stayed here before. Staff very helpful and friendly. Our bedroom/ensuite in the annex was light airy and modern. Dinner and breakfast was very good. If you want to take a look at the chocolate-box pretty village of Ashby Saint Ledgers,The Olde Coach House is the place to stay.
All round excellent, from the lovely and friendly staff, to the clean and smart rooms and the lovely food, my colleague and myself had a lovely evening after a long day, I will be back. All in a quiet setting and a picturesque village.
I booked for 1 night as I was in meetings in Rugby the following day and I wanted somewhere different and relaxed, so booked the OCH. The day before I travelled, I read some recent reviews and tried to cancel without penalty, but could not. So was apprehensive when I arrived. I was met by friendly staff who checked me in and took me to my room. I was asked if there was anything else they could help with and I asked for a fan due to the heat and it was delivered to my door within 10 minutes. The room was well funished, in very good order and large size. The bed was comfortable and matress was good. The bathroom looked like it had been recently up-graded and the shower was a large over head one, couldn't fault it. The bar area was typical mutli rooms and the choice of beer, cider and Larger was impressive and actually my favorites. The menu was limited and a little pricey for what was on offer, but the food was excellent and I was asked if everything was ok with the food, which it was (see picture). The breakfast bacon and sausage were good quality and service was good. My only observation is the tean and coffee station needs changing and jam and marmalade were not offered (or asked for) with the toast. I have no problem in recomending the OCH and will stay again.
A short but lovely stay in a pretty village in countryside just outside Rugby. Quiet rural setting. The coach house is made up of a number of smaller, public rooms so there is opportunity for privacy if required.
Had one night in Augest the service was very bad waited over 10 min just to have a drink befor our meal as other people where saved befor us and when we came for breakfast at 8.40 to be told that cooked breakfast had finished at 8.30 when I asked to see the manager the girl told me she was not in intill 11.00 and then came back to say that the chief will come back down to make us some, when we came down to check out there was no one at reception had to go looking for her the staff do need some trining.
