on holiday and unsure of where to eat. Visited at lunchtime. Great choice on menu. The food came and we were not disappointed. Fabulous. The service was great. Very friendly. Suitable for children also. Nice area to sit outside if weather is good. Will definitely return.

We stayed here as part of a wedding party. When we arrived we were taken directly to our room. The room was small but had everything needed for our stay, very clean with a view over the neighbouring fields. The bathroom was tiny but for a village B&B style lodging we were glad to have en suite facilities. We then... More

Visited on a Friday evening it was busy but not packed out. We were greeted promptly and shown to our table, the restaurant was homely and clean with a cosy intimate feeling to it. The menu offered a good selection of starters, mains and desserts all at reasonable prices. The food was tasty, hot and decent sized portions and served... More

We found the Pack Horse whilst travelling from Scotland down the A1 a little over a year ago. It was a Sunday, and we arrived just before 6pm, when service finished. We were served a fantastic meal. We enjoyed it so much that we have returned 2 more times since the, when travelling the A1. Today (Sunday) we were again... More

Third vist to the Pack Horse and we were not disappointed. The menu is always interesting and the quality of the food is excellent. To top it all they had Timothy Taylor's Landlord on draught. Great lunch.

We stayed here the night before a wedding at Ellingham Hall. The room was lovely, every need catered for. The staff were so friendly and it was a relaxing stay. The food was lovely, with excellent service and a pleasant pub to spend the evening. We would highly recommend the Pack Horse Inn and wished that we had stayed there... More

Fantastic food & friendly faces. What a treat to find such great service, food and atmosphere all in one pub! With the added bonus of being dog-friendly. Despite being relatively busy AND it being the chef's day off the food was wonderful and service prompt. We visited on a whim and will definitely be back for more!

Fabulous food at dog friendly pub - great meal, excellent menu choice that changes daily with award winning chef. What brought us here for my Dad's 70th was the fact that dogs aren't only welcome but you can book in the bar so a table was guaranteed. Staff were really friendly and accommodating. Would certainly recommend it, especially to those... More

Lovely little olde worlde pub in the pretty village of Ellingham 5 mins off the A1. This is a popular pub, even in mid-week, with "have you made a reservation?" being the first thing said to me & realised why soon after. Inspired menu & reasonably priced too. Food is freshly prepared, nicely presentated & exceedingly good - enjoyed goats... More

I dined here a couple weeks ago on a Friday night, it was absolutely gorgeous. The menu well thought out with a wide variety of choice. The staff were charming and the landlady a hoot. we were well looked after. The pub itself was idyllic and exactly the kind of place we like to dine. we were definitely not disappointed.... More
