The food was reasonably good, but took an awfully long time to arrive. The place was fairly busy, on a Thursday evening, but we were able to get about 15 people into a couple of large outdoor tables. There were some small children with us, and they were able to play in the garden, which was helpful. Not great, not... More

when we arrived at the pub we were told we had to sit outside as they had a lot of bookings, even though there were lots of empty tables that were not filled all night. We then tried to order draught bitter. We were told that they had run out and didnt have time to change the barrel. This is... More

This used to be run so well. Unfortunately the place needs a bit of freshening up. The garden is not kept clean. The tables were dirty and sticky and the umbrellas look messy. As for the food. It is below average, for pub food, and so pricey for what it is. I think they should really smarten themselves up.

My friend booked a table on Sunday afternoon for lunch for 14 people. When we arrived our table wasn't ready which wasn't a massive issue as we all got a drink and sat outside in the sun. A member of staff came over and told us our table was ready we all moved inside. Our table was not in the... More

Went for a meal on a Friday evening and ate in the garden. Ordered 2 gourmet burgers for teenagers which were rated as good, a seafood platter to share which turned up without plates, when we requested 2 plates we got one tiny plate and one saucer! The platter was missing the asparagus and no butter was brought. The fifth... More

Food is quite good and reasonably priced. It's a pleasant pub, though its setting close to a busy main road isn't too attractive!

Undercooked veg, burnt meat, congealed gravy and meal only just warm. Real ale was too cold. A real disappointment, will not be returning to The Shire Horse. My partners meal was disappointing too.

Went here for a girlie catch up. Never been before. Easy to find. Has a very large car park which is very convenient. Starters- Hoisin Duck. Described as crispy coated with Hoisin Sauce, coriander and sesame seeds. It wasn't crispy and no coriander. It was more like Duck wings or even possibly thighs in light sweet gravy. Edible, but wouldn't... More
