Loads of food!

Just got back from an early evening dinner with a friend. Nachos to start which were great followed by a Piri Piri Chicken Salad for me and a Fajita Chicken Salad for my friend. Portions were very generous, so much so that we both asked for a doggy bag! Service was very good and prices very... read more

A warm welcome was not matched by the standard of cuisine now widely found in Public Houses. The slowness in the food coming out from the kitchen was perhaps down to our being a family party of 12, but when it did arrive it was very average, and did not excite. A shame really as the serving girls were very... More

Great place to visit for a drink with friends. Locals are friendly and a good selection of ales. Under new management, so worth a visit!

Really disappointed, terrible service and mediocre food. On arrival we waited for ages at the bar until another customer had to shout upstairs so someone would serve us. They had dirty sticky plastic menus and other tables were served before us even though we were there first. My G&T was served in a half pint glass, didn't have any tonic... More

I chose to take a work colleague to the swan which is now closed so we ended up here. Our two favourite beers were off, leaving a limited choice. There was heavy maintenence work going on at the cellar trap door with a lot of grinding, so I was struggling to hear my colleague. I was amazed to see people... More

I had used this pub for many years. Great locals and always a good chat. Unfortunately the beer is very poor. The wine is from a tap and to get them to open a bottle is like pulling teeth. The food, oh dear! what has happened here? Our food was soggy and drenched in cheese. The chips were as soggy.... More

The Hoodeners Horse accommodated 9 family members for a local meal out to celebrate daughters birthday. Great food with good service in a busy but friendly pub.Also met well the challenge of some of our party arriving at different times due to work commitments well and whilst the pub demands a lot of the hard worked staff they were up...

Have yet to eat here as we have only been in for a drink while out for a walk but will definitely be interested in trying the food soon. We found the pub to have a traditional village pub atmosphere and the locals were friendly and even invited us to join in their Saturday afternoon pub games which really made... More
