Went for a quick bite to eat on our way home as a treat and ended up wishing we had spent our money elsewhere. Food was average, we had lasagne and garlic bread which was bland in flavour and not piping hot, I had beef burrito which was more like rice burrito. I raised the point with the bar staff... More

as a party of 8 we visited running Horse to celebrate my birthday. Starters were okay, mains except for the three burgers ordered was in the main okay. The burgers were overcooked and dry, and when we told one of the waitresses, she mentioned that she would speak to the chefs. As it was my birthday my family did not... More

Just out for a drive on Sunday saw the pub and decided to call in for a bite to eat. The staff were friendly and attentive food was good, portion size for me was to big but for my partner and son just right prices seemed fair to me will definitely come again .

Noticed this Pub which trades as a Hungry Horse while attending the hospital opposite. Large varied menu, quick polite service, good size portions, hot and well presented at a reasonable price. It is split into a family section and an over 18 section, nice idea. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, will be back to use the £5 off next visit voucher.

Amazing choice on the menu, and the quality was good, at very reasonable prices. Sadly the cutlery didn't reach the same standard, more attention to detail required in this area. Standard of service at the bar was mixed, but again friendly staff, but oh those glasses, very poor standard of cleanliness, there really has to be an improvement here, which... More
