Nice enough venue for a causal lunch.

Reasonably priced and perfectly adequate place to meet a friend for lunch. Fair bit of choice on the menu and children catered for too. Nice outside area if weather ok. Friendly enough staff, shame the bar staff didn't know that the pasta dish was actually pasta!!

Our friend arrived from France for a short stay so we decided to have a welcome meal at the Shire Hose where we have dined many times before. As usual the service was very good, the staff extremely cheerful and obliging. We each ordered different starters and main courses, but all arrived quite quickly. The quality and quantity of the...

Having booked on line as all their emails encourage you to do we arrived to no table with 2 elderly parents in wheel chairs. All areas with tables left had stairs. Squashed 8 of us on a table for 6. No gas through the pumps so no lemonade or mixer drinks. Food was greasy and thrown together and not very... More

Booked a table for 20 of us to celebrate end of term. We were put together in a seperate bit at the very end of the restaurant. There was a similar group in the other separate bit at the opposite end. The fact I pre ordered the food probably made this night far easier! We were allocated a lovely young... More

My friend was not that hungry so just ordered the prawn cocktail (with chips on the side) I ordered the so called sweet potato burger.... More

First time visiting here but it was dinner in a hurry. Service was good however a few things were not available such as the chicken curry and summer BBQ chicken at 8pm. I did not have a starter but ironically after dinner I was still hungry so ended up ordering one then! Main was a chicken fillet with brioche roll... More

It is. Read some of the other reviews. A general couldn't care less attitude, items on the menu not available and the order taking staff unaware. Great when several are ordering and waitress has to return to tell you you can't have some items ordered. Never again.

We visited the Shire Horse for a quick midweek meal and took advantage of an inclusive summer deal offering a main course and dessert. All started off fine with the main courses. But then no one came to clear our plates and no dessert came. We went to the bar to ask for the desserts after 20 minutes but nothing... More

Booked a table for 15 for a family occasion a month in advance and double checked the booking 2 days before. Was reassured both times that everything was in place and tables were reserved. We arrived and the booking was a complete surprise. They had to move 2 diners out of their chairs, couldn't arrange some tables together, didn't know... More

Although this is part of a small chain, it really doesn't feel like it. My family and I have been coming here for a very long time. I really like the fact that they have good seasonal produce and the meals I have eaten really did feel as if the chef prepared them from scratch rather than other chains where... More
