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

From the moment we walked into the bar and were met by the delightful smiling faces of the all girl team at the Pack Horse the service was second to non. We hadn't booked and it was obviously a busy Saturday night but this didn't seem to matter a jot, we were treated like old friends. Asked to take a... More

Set in picture postcard village, this beautiful pub is a hidden gem. It is well worth the detour from the A1. Staff were lovely..and the food was excellent..a lovely place for a special occasion meal or just a sandwich. We had a long lunch....and will definitely be back.

Every month I go and have a meal at the Pack horse. Sometimes on my own and other times with friends. Entering this cosy traditional pub, with the log fire blazing and immediately met by friendly bar staff and the landlady. I don't book but even when busy they accommodate me perfectly. The food is of a fantastic nature, I... More

We stayed for two nights. Our room was spacious and the bed very comfortable, Everything was very clean and toiletries, hospitality tray etc well stocked. I am on a very restricted diet (which I informed them about in advance) and the lovely Linny bought in special supplies for me. Dinner was delightful - our only complaint (if you call it... More
