Fantastic Carvery

Fantastic Sunday Carvery; really good quality meat, and a nice selection of freshly prepared vegetables and sides. Left feeling very full, will certainly be visiting again!

You'd struggle to find a nicer pub. The food here is great. The service is fantastic. Great for a quiet drink.

Amongst other restaurants, we have been going to the Coach and Horses for a number of years for lunch and evening meals, in particular on a Thursday which usually is Fish Night. The food is always of a high standard and served by friendly, welcoming staff. The restaurant Manager, Leigh, and his team are always professional, accommodating and attentive. Saba

Visited for a Sunday lunch.. One of my favourites! Greeted by an indifferent bar tender.. Order taken quickly. Then we waited to receive cold food, dried out carvory & overcooked veggies. The place needs a good clean too! Sticky tables, very smelly toilets without toilet roll.

Traveling with three teens this was a bit of a stretch to our budget to eat here. Its a little pricy but the food did not disappoint. My older son had the chicken breast and my daughter had the duck which were both ambrosia. My younger son had the fish and chips which were very good as fish and chips... More

I have previous good experiences at this establishment, however, I was disappointed with my latest visit. Welcome was not too friendly and the food was just about ok! Yorkshire puddingss were cold - no excuse! The seating in the 'Snug' was rather grubby and stained. The disabled/downstairs toilets were very grubby indeed - the hand dryer did not work and... More

We had the meal deal and it was excellent, good quantity and good value too. Staff were caring, polite and welcoming. Not our first visit and we will continue to return. Recommended.

We have been eating at this restaurant on a thursday "fish night" evening for about 4 years and it's been a really good experience. There is usually a choice of 4 items for starters and 4 items for the main course, all fishy ones and the ones we have chosen have always been very good indeed. The staff are efficient... More

Not eaten here yet but the food always looks delicious when I'm in there! It's a nice old world pub! Great selection of real beers and a fully stocked bar! The real fire in winter must be amazing! I could easily spend all night in here. Have a great night!
