Restaurant Review

In October 2020 Life Magazines paid us a visit to review The Old Volunteer Gastro Pub. Take a read of a few snippets from the article. Take a read of the whole article here.

“Even from the outside, it’s obvious that the refurbishment has indeed been major and that serious money has been spent. There’s a big outdoor seating area to the front and side of the pub with some fantastic furniture and plenty of planting. Go inside and where once it was rustic country kitchen, now it is sleekly modern. There’s a beautifully crafted oak floor, cleanly finished walls in a uniform pale yellow, some sleek statement light fittings and distinctly high-end furniture. The finish is exemplary…”

“The Old Volunteer is still very much a gastropub and this is reflected in the menu, which features a good range of contemporary British and European dishes. I should point out that if you want something a bit more casual, tapas are available along with pizza and barbecue menus.”

“On to main courses and with eleven dishes on offer there was something for everyone, even some tasty looking vegan options (I bet you never thought you’d hear that from me!). We were both in a mood for fish, so it was handy that there were three seafood dishes to choose from. I had Grilled Whole Lemon Sole with Maitre d’Hotel Butter, New Potatoes & Green Salad. Lemon sole is always a special treat. The key is to keep it simple and let the subtle flavour and texture of the fish shine through. This is exactly what the chef did – perfect! Penny opted for Fillet of Sea Bass, Crushed New Potatoes, Tender Stem Broccoli with a Buerre Noisette & Dukkah. Once again, the fish was perfectly cooked with a crispy skin and meltingly tender flesh. And no, I am still none the wiser as to what Dukkah is.” – Howard Clemmow

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT

We are happy to announce we are re-opening with a new General Manager.

Alex is looking forward to bringing The Old Volunteer back to the community and getting to know everybody in it.

The Caythorpe Pub Company have transformed our much loved pub over 2020 creating a stylish Gastropub.

From top to bottom we were transformed creating menus and dishes to be enjoyed in the newly refurbished lounge and dining rooms.
