About The Scole Inn

The Scole Inn is a former coaching inn that dates back to the seventeenth-century.

The Scole Inn is a pet-friendly property that has a garden and ample parking. Staff also provide packed lunches and luggage storage while there are meeting and banquet facilities on-site. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are available in either the bar or restaurant at this small hotel. An extensive drinks list includes local cask ales and fine wines from around the world.

Positive Reviews


Full of character

From the massive fireplaces in the bar to the old chairs and wooden features found throughout, you can't help but wonder what the history of this place is. It's what you would expect a coaching inn to look like and a great place for those looking for authentic old world accommodation.


Tasty pub grub

The bar and restaurant serve all the traditional pub grub classics, but they are far from regular. Many guests are of the opinion that all the meals are cooked to perfection and extremely satisfying. And all of it can be washed down with one of the ales served behind the bar.


Quiet location

Diss is an old market town, and you're only a short ten-minute drive away from it. It's not a major tourist attraction, but it's a nice place to visit with some good places to eat.

Negative Reviews


Old world gone wild

This inn is a beautiful building, but the old world charm of the place doesn't cover up the fact that pretty much everything is in need of replacing. With a bit of TLC, this place could be incredible, but there are too many cracks and too much peeling paint at the moment.


Service a little lacking

The people that work here do their best, but there seems to be too few people working to cover all the bases. Guests have arrived and been left waiting to check in while others have had their bookings lost by absent employees. Not great service overall.


Housekeeping issues

The rooms are quaint and very old fashioned and would be quite charming if they were kept in better condition. The problem is that they don't seem to be cleaned thoroughly in between guests. So there have been stains and rubbish found in the rather musty rooms.
