We were seated promptly and the waitress took our drinks orders. I had the fish and chips with mushy peas, which wasn't very authentic British, but it was good. It was prob frozen fish sticks, but they were good. The peas were good too, as were the chips. My son had the chicken tikka masala which I tried, it was...

Went to Branson to visit my friend Ronnie today. Every time I take off for the day, we research and hunt down really good restaurants. Today we were at The Pub at The Inn in downtown Hollister, across the lake from The Landing. OMG. I'm giving it 5 stars. The chef is awesome, the waitstaff is friendly, knowledgeable, & professional....

This is a fantastic bed-and-breakfast and a spot for lunch! We had lunch in the pub where we enjoyed a wonderful hamburger and even more fantastic fries. Ambience is very British. We had a tour of the rooms which were very quaint and clean. This is one of the oldest hotels in the area and has been updated. Yet it...

We were staying at Holiday Hills, Hollister, Missouri and asked about places to eat without getting into the crowds in Branson.....advised Hollister did not not have but one restaurant. However, quite by accident we "stumbled" across the Black Horse Pub adjacent to the Old English Inn in Hollister. What a well kept secret! My wife and our guests were delighted...

What a treat to get away from the bustle of Branson and stay at this wonderfully charming inn with great people and great food. Very reasonable room rates and an atmosphere that is so refreshing. Looking forward to a return visit soon!

Went in for a Father's Day brunch. It was an absolute joke. No food. It was laughable this place was charging $20 per person and there was very few choices and what was there was empty. Staff was not around...stood at front door for 5 mins until someone in the back yelled to us to go seat ourselves. No one...

We stayed at the English Inn which is a 3 minute drive from Branson. The hotel, built in the early 1900s, was updated several years ago. There are several styles of bedrooms to choose from. Some of the rooms were smaller than others, but everything in all the rooms was top quality from the linens & towels, to the tile...

Stopped in for breakfast at about 11:00am on Sunday morning. We were told they were no longer serving breakfast, the server suggested we go somewhere else if we wanted breakfast. Should have taken her advise. The food was average but not bad. Because there was only one server, the service was spotty and slow. But the biggest irritation were the...

While staying nearby at a resort, my boyfriend and I stopped in to check out this quaint pub and glad we did. Just had a couple drinks at the bar & shared some fish & fries ($10.99, I think), They were the best fish and fries (I opted for fries over chips) that I have ever had. The beer batter...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience the nostalgic charm of one of the area's most recognized landmarks, The Old English Inn on historic Downing Street in Hollister, Missouri. First opened in 1912, the Inn underwent a full renovation in 2010. Enjoy a luxurious stay in one of 21 beautifully-restored guest suites complete with Elizabethan-style architectural detailing, magnificent wooden beds, fine linens and modern conveniences such as 32" LCD TVs, high-speed internet connection and free local calls. The newly renovated Downing Street Bistro, located on the lower-level, features fine dining for dinner and offers breakfast and a Sunday brunch. Next door, the intimate Black Horse Pub offers a full-selection of spirits along with occasional live performances by local musicians. Located just 3 minutes from the Branson Landing, the Ye Olde English Inn is a must-see piece of Ozarks' History. Bring your camera for a photo of the handcrafted staircase, beautifully landscaped courtyard and the carefully preserved mark on the stone walls of the lobby left by the overflowing White River in 1945. Nearby, see the Hollister Train Depot where many of the Inn's first overnight guests arrived eager to meet the friendly people and explore the breathtaking scenery in Harold Bell Wright's 1907 novel, The Shepherd of the Hills. Many of these 1900-era visitors star in The Inn's extensive photo collection. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, a place to reminisce with friends, military buddies or your extended family, The Old English Inn is the perfect place for any type group event, including weddings and anniversary celebrations. ... more   less

“If you are thinking about getting the suite to accommodate more people, don't. It will accommodate 3 at the most comfortably. The window bed and the ottoman pull out beds are not comfortable. There is a double bed and a standard couch. And you have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. So if someone is sleeping on the couch they will have to walk through the bedroom in the night. I recommend getting individual rooms.”
