Understaffed= slooowww service

First visit here on way back from day out. Grossly understaffed therefore the service was painfully slow. It's a shame really as we found the menu quite varied and the food was good.wouldnt rush back.

I recently attended 'The Shire Horse' with my family to celebrate my birthday. I used to work around the corner for several years so this is a place I know fairly well. We arrived about 19:30 on a Wednesday, with a view that the post-work drinkers would be on their way and the pub would have moved more into 'restaurant... More

Having just moved into the area this pub has served us well over the months. As good as a mass chain pub can be and yes, there are other great pubs in the area but for a Friday night family meal this ticks all the boxes. Always get a nice table and the food and service has always been great.

From the outside ... Looks inviting. From the inside the service was not even average and extremely slow. This was both the bar service and waiting time for lunch. The food finally arrived however, stone cold. Salad was limp and dry. Chicken was dry and old. Burger came with very few fries. Wasn't even busy .., Whole place desperate need... More

We went here for a family meal. Having been before and had a great experience we were all looking forward to our dinner. Unfortunately didn't turn out well at all. We ordered our food and had to wait 50mins for it. There was no apology when the food arrived and to make matters worse it was stone cold. We finally... More

Had high hopes for this place, having had recommendations from friends. But was left wanting. No welcome a Rude, dare I say angry woman was stomping around the bar, a smile wouldn't of killed her!! Food was ok - slightly small portions than expected. No real atmosphere it was just totally missing the mark. Mediocre not worth a second visit

I hadn't been here for a while but the food had improved so much since my last visit over a year ago. Try the Indian curry, the daal is amazing and coming from an Indian family it was a pleasant surprise. Service was very good too.

Very pleasant place meet generally, and especially for lunch. They have a very good value lunch menu with a slightly smaller portion, which is excellent. I had the fish and sweet potato fries, but there were a a number of other choices. The surroundings are pleasant, the location convenient and the parking plentiful.
