Nice food, poor service

Visited yesterday. Food was good, nice menu. Proper Sunday roast. However the staff were quite short with us, like we felt like we'd upset them but no idea why!

Booked a table for 15 for a family occasion a month in advance and double checked the booking 2 days before. Was reassured both times that everything was in place and tables were reserved. We arrived and the booking was a complete surprise. They had to move 2 diners out of their chairs, couldn't arrange some tables together, didn't know... More

Although this is part of a small chain, it really doesn't feel like it. My family and I have been coming here for a very long time. I really like the fact that they have good seasonal produce and the meals I have eaten really did feel as if the chef prepared them from scratch rather than other chains where... More

The Food at the Shire Horse was fabulous, this was our 3rd visit and as on previous visits we were not disappointed. On our previous visits the service was excellent, i have to say on this occasion the same could not be said, it was very slow and our server appeared to be a little forgetful, saying this it will...

On our way back from our 25th wedding anniversary extended weekend in Venice we popped in to the Shire horse for drink and a bite to eat. Their lunch time menu was absolutely great value. I had Stilton and peppercorn mushrooms and my wife had the farm house pate as starters. For our main we both had the hand battered... More

Have used this venue for nearly thirty years so have seen it go through several incarnations. A nice summer's evening so thought I'd (we'd) go back but really regretted it. The idea should be OK and the setting could be great but when you eat food, you expect it to be cooked not cremated. Wildly over-priced mixed grill... not the... More

I recently eat here with my Wife and Sister and can say that we had a great all round experience. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Bit of a mix up with our dessert order not being placed when ordered with the waiter but good service recovery resulted in an overall very lovely experience.

This is a lovely, quant restaurant and the staff are friendly. However, the food leaves a lot to be desired. Our meals were cold, the onion rings were fried to a crisp, In fact, most of the food was over cooked. Drinks were expensive too. All in all, such a shame because this restaurant has such great potential.

What a mess this place is since new management. Someone's had a 'go' at painting tables outside. Paint all over garden floor, tables and chairs look like a six year old painted them. Torn parasols. Tables left with food remnants and dirty. Id advise senior management to visit.

said the Manager when we asked what the house red was like! Manager seemed disinterested when we arrived and plonked us on our table. Had to carefully order as the waitress did not seem to know the menu but she may have been new. Food is average. Not sure why people go here when there is so much choice in... More
