My wife and myself have dined at the Pack Horse Inn on numerous occasions and have always found our experience to be excellent. The dinning experience is not to be missed, the food being of the highest quality, utilising fresh locally sourced produce, cooked and presented to the highest quality. The large portions are very filling, particularly the fish and... More

Sunday lunch. Were very fortunate to stumble across this small inn by chance. Knew nothing about it beforehand so had no preconceptions. Food very good and beef exceptional. Have to say it was still quite bloody which is actually just how I like it but can see if you don't you might be better to say as it was a... More

We were the only people in the restaurant for dinner which was served against a backdrop of well oiled boors in the bar. The result felt like a rugby club stag night a few feet away from our table. The waitress decided,having served our meals to start clearing and re setting the tables recently vacated by the people who now... More

Thank you for taking the time to review The Pack Horse Inn although I am, of course extremely disappointed and upset by your comments. I wish to express that that we are a country pub surrounded by a shooting estate. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to cater for shooting parties as they form a very important customer... More

We visited for a one course early lunch and were welcomed with friendly, efficient service and the food was delicious. A traditional country pub (with live fire to stoke!) yet it has a comporary feel too. Thank you, we will definitely be back.

Our second visit to the Pack Horse. Excellent Sunday lunch, imaginative menu of high quality food, well prepared and served. The refurbishment of the pub is really well done providing a comfortable and calm atmosphere. The service by the young staff was excellent. Will definitely return

We only visited for an evening meal. However we wish we had stayed here instead of the disappointing Purdy Lodge which is nearby. The food was excellent with a very good choice. The service by the young staff was friendly and efficient. The pub décor is modern but still in keeping with a village pub. The young landlady is very... More

Lovely pub with a cosy cottage atmosphere, and outstanding food. Sunday lunch is a little more expensive than some but definitely worth it. Excellent service and very friendly, we are looking forward to going back again.

Lovely, welcoming pub which was recommended to us by the landlady of our B & B - we were not disappointed and ate there three times during our visit to the area. The menu was interesting with generous portions - we both tried the fish and chips and on both occasions the fish was enormous! Prices were reasonable and my... More

A great find. A warm welcome from the quite young landlady, Belinda, and her staff. Very interesting menu with high quality food. For starters we had tempura tiger prawns and ham hock fritters with quail egg, and to follow vegetable curry and stir fried duck breast with stir fried vegetables. All excellent, and each dish was well presented with salad,... More

The pub appears to have been recently decorated as it looks very clean and fresh with a modern feel. Four of us dined but the food was only ok, i've had better at other pubs in the area. Service was good. The pub is situated not far off the A1 and would probably make a good base for visiting a... More
