Dinner

We always enjoy coming here for lunch or dinner as service is usually pretty speedy and prices aren't too bad. I'm not sure the food is as good as it once was as the last couple of times we've left thinking our meals were just 'ok' which is a bit of a concern. Worth trying though.

Sunday teatime and fancied a roast. Friendly greeting by manager, food came out promptly. That's where the good review ends. Roast potatoes inedible and looked rotten? 2 slices of Turkey and a Yorkshire pudding that was so hard I couldn't eat it! So my first time was the last I am afraid. Get a new chef!!!

My husband and i wanted to treat our 3 kids to 1 last treat before going back to school, so we took them to the shire horse for dinner. It went downhill after getting our 1st drinks! My middle daughter ordered soup as her starter after being told it was mushroom soup. When i arrived it was pea mint and... More

A group of college friends, 9 of us ate here last Thursday and the Thursday before. We booked for this week as the weather was bad, glad we did as it was full in the restaurant. We were all really pleased with the food, the service and the ambiance at the Shire Horse. The 3 courses for £12 or £14... More

Unfortunately I have been here a few times, due to the pub's proximity to my office. If you have a limited time for lunch, don't come here as I have never waited less than 10 minutes (usually around 15 minutes) to be served at the bar. This is not because of long queues, it's due to either a lack of... More

I thought my first meal in the UK would be Fish and Chips, but reading about the Sausage and Mash on the lunch menu changed my mind. I wanted to lick my plate to enjoy every last bit of the brown sauce and I begrudgingly shared my sausage and mash with my boyfriend, who did order the fish and chips... More

Called in here for what we hoped would be a pleasant late lunch. Certainly looked promising from the outside. However it seems that appearances can be deceptive. On arrival we waited patiently at the bar to be served. And we waited and waited and waited. Stood beside us was a customer who was complaining to a member of staff. There... More

What a super place.Wasnt sure what to think initially as its a chain pub.But pleasantly surprised. I had the Belly of Pork which was mouthwatering and cooked to perfection.Complemented by the house wine what more could you want.Too full for a pud but did see them and looked perfect. Staff lovely and polite.Would highly recommend

I went with a group of 7 ladies for lunch. On the bar was a sign apologizing that food would take 30-40 minutes. We ordered food and drinks and waited 45 minutes. We mainly ordered sandwiches which came with a portion of chips on the plate. The amount varied on each plate. I ordered a chicken & bacon sandwich on... More

A good range of very tasty dishes which were enjoyed by my family. I selected fish pie of which I am a fan and it was served with vegetables. Good wine & good company made for a good evening. Staff very efficient & friendly. Maybe next time I will have a change with steak on a Thursday.
