A very nice restaurant and great food

This restaurant serves a great carvery and has a good general menu. However it is always so busy and pretty noisy and I prefer a quieter place, so I don't go that often. The carvery section is always busy and tends to mean that queuing customers are standing over tables where people are sitting... read more

I have been coming to this pub a couple of times a years since 1988. It goes from strength the strength, which whilst this is what's you want from a restaurant it can also detract. It's so popular and busy now it can feel a little manic. But what do you expect from a place that serves a good selection... More

Thursday lunch with friends we had not seen for years was spoiled to an extent by the pub's system of ordering food and the lack of care for detail on the part of the staff. We knew in advance that there was carvery plus a separate menu and that we were likely to use both. Our friends only wanted starters... More

We have just spent two very soggy weeks caravanning in Sidmouth, Devon and if it hadn't been for the Horse and Hounds pub it would have been a total washout. They do a carvery every day and it is unbelievable. A really nice pub with fantastic food. All you ever need really. Would definitely go to Sidmouth again and would... More

Have visited this on several occasions and have never been disappointed yet. Four choices of meat and ample vegetable dishes. Decent price for carvery at £10.95. Advisable to book at busy times.

We go there regularly for the carvery, especially with friends and visitors. The food is always excellent and the service friendly.

This is the one of the few places we have been to that seem to be as good now as it was 10 years ago. Allot of places can vary massively from one week to the next. Carvery is consistently high standard. They have done some recent work improving the kids play area which makes it even more suitable for... More

We drive 50 miles each way to enjoy the carvery which is the best we have enjoyed anywhere. We have been doing this at least once a month for the past fifteen years. The food is well cooked, the four available meats all taste as they should and the large selection of vegetables are always cooked to perfection. There is... More

Me and my partner came here for a roast a few weeks back. It was late afternoon on a Sunday and the place was packed. It was difficult to find a table but we squeezed in on the bar! Staff were really friendly when we ordered, explained everything and food was absolutely delicious!!! Good price for the food, all well... More
