Celebrated a family birthday here, Sunday roasts had just run out but otherwise the choice was wide. I had steak pie - and swapped mash for chips no problem,. Pie was huge looked like a giant pork pie with a small pot of gravy. The chicken pie also looked good. They made a custom meal of a chicken breast and... More

We visited the Shire Horse as a break point in our journey, and was very impressed with the service and quality. We took young children who were made very welcome, and there are gardens to the front side and rear, and a horse field we visited next door. The historic building is very welcoming with open fire, oak beams and... More

We visit this pub/restaurant on a regular basis and again last night for my birthday. The service is excellent whether they are busy or not they are always prompt with their meals and the staff are always happy and eager to please. We have never had a problem getting a table even though we book it, usually on the day.... More

I have visited the Shire Horse numerous times in the past and always had a pleasant experience, so I was a little concerned after booking this evening and then reading the handful of poor reviews prior to my own. I needn't have worried ! The restaurant is part of the Chef & Brewer chain and conveniently situated on the Bath... More

Thursday night is steak night at the Shire Horse and a weekly treat. Chris, the manager, goes out of his way to look after us, as does Anita one of the waitresses. The restaurant is always busy, with a lively atmosphere. The meals are tasty, and on the rare occasion that the steak has been sinewy and hard to eat,... More

We decided to try this bar/restaurant again as after our last review here we were contacted by an area manager and so decided to give then another go. We were seated pretty quick and probably got there just before the Saturday lunch time rush. The food was vastly improved and I tried the rump steak this time which was so... More

The two of us came here for an early dinner around 4ish, when we arrived the pub was completely dead so we got to choose a table. We sat down the other end of the pub away from the bar, it was freezing. The waitress gave us menus and told us she would come back to do our drinks orders... More

Ordered slow cooked rib of beef with sticky duck wings, sweet potato fries and salad. Beef very good, tasty and tender but the duck was AWFUL. Was expecting crispy wings coated with a sticky sauce but they were very tough, grey looking, -skin soft and fatty - looked as if they had been boiled rather than roasted or grilled and... More
