Myself and Sister took my mother to the Sorrel Horse, to reminisce on the area where our mother went to school and spent her early years of life. On arrival, my young hearted mother took a tumble in their busy Restaurant, this normally would have doomed our holiday, but thanks to the kindness and professionalism of both the Staff and... More

Having lived in the area for 5 years I've visited the Sorrel Horse many times. Probably once a month. We have never had a duff meal. The menu doesn't change very often and some people complain about this, but they are very good at what they do cook. The steak and ale pie is my favourite. A very generous serving... More

When travelling with our three terriers it can be difficult to find establishments that meet the needs of dogs and humans. The Sorrel Horse Inn managed both, the ground floor room offered easy access and was far enough from the pub to be quiet even on the night of England versus Italy. The room was clean and comfortable and well... More

A visit whilst visiting relatives in the area left us full, but not desperate to go back. Whitebait starters were good; chilli con carne/steak and ale pudding mains were OK; fruit crumble dessert we weren't overly impressed with. Kids meals were good, and the play area kept them entertained, but not sure we'll be visiting again in the near future.... More

We had planned to call in elsewhere for supper but to our disappointment found they stopped doing food at 6.00pm! So after a bit of re-planning we turned up at the Sorrel Horse, and was delighted to find them not only open but serving food and quite busy too! The efficient barmaid warned us there was a 40-minute wait, but... More

Camping in the area and looking for somewhere to cheer us in the rather dismal weather. The Sorrel Horse had been recommended by a member of the staff in another local Pub, that I obviously won't mention! Lovely friendly place, a good choice of comforting food, I can heartily recommend the chicken and mushroom pie, I try pies everywhere and... More

Rooms were very clean and presentable, the ladies found the beds to be too hard.Very nice breakfast in the morning, lots to choose from, all... More
