Just before Christmas I entered a competition allied to "Chef and Brewer" and was pleased to find that I had won vouchers to eat at a venue of my choice . We decided to go to the Shire Horse which is on the A4 just before Maidenhead from Reading.. It is a while since we have travelled this far on... More

I visited the Shire Horse in December with approx. 10 female friends. The service was brilliant and the food was absolutely beautiful! I had the duck for main and was dubious about it but it was perfect! Everyone was pleased with their meals!

We have eaten here a couple of times now, and never had a bad meal! Food is consistently good and the Sunday Roast is awesome! Went in just before Christmas (with no booking) and despite the restaurant being very busy they made space for us - this also including moving us 3 times (at our request as some of the... More

On a freezing January Sunday we popped in for lunch having never been here before. The topside of beef and roast pork lunches were both really good. The meat on both was thickly sliced and delicious, as well as being very generous servings. Staff are really friendly, the young manager most of all. This is an attractive pub and probably... More

Went if for a Christmas meal and was impressed all round, except for the slow-cooked beef. No-one mentioned it was to be coated in a smoked/BBQ sauce; just what is Christmassy about that? Had the beef just been slow-cooked it would have been lovely but leave the sauce alone, chef. and make it a pot on the side. The service... More

Stopped here for a meal early evening. Extensive menu with something for all tastes, as other reviews indicate. Friendly welcome from the staff. As ever, with this chain, value for money does not feel great. Food is decent, but seems more expensive than it ought to be. It's always worth hunting down the vouchers you can usually find for Chef... More

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
