Busy Sunday night

This is one of the worst places I have even eaten. The table was dirty and sticky, it had obviously not been cleaned for a while. The cutlery was dirty and had bits of food still left on it. The service was slow as we waited over 30 mins for food. When the food eventually came it was cold and... More

I have visited this establishment on a number of occasions and have enjoyed it each time! The food is always nice and there is a huge selection, so something for everyone! Atmosphere always seems to be lively buy maybe be wary of bad language etc especially at the weekends of bringing family or younger children!

We chose the Running Horse as it is child-friendly, and we had our 2 year old grandson with us. As part of the Hungry Horse chain the menu is pretty standard, and again child friendly., We made the mistake of going when live football was being screened, so it was hardly suitable for a quiet meal. However, there were plenty... More

Its a large pub which serves large portions of low cost / average food. Surfaces are tacky, and staff are mildly interested in serving you.. The massive portions of food is served quite quickly and is edible but the chip oil needs changing etc. Its a very average experience and could do with a lot of TLC before this venue... More

Me and my family went for a meal on Saturday and we got greeted by very miserable staff that looked like they didn't want to be there. We sat down and had a look at the menu which was sticky and the table was dirty and sticky to. After deciding what we would have to eat we approach the bar... More

We stopped on a Saturday evening after visiting Legoland. The prices were reasonable but the quality of food was not good everything tasted & looked like a ready meal from a supermarket & my meal of chicken breast was almost cold. We defiantly wouldn't go back for food maybe a drink as there seemed to be quite a few people... More

I have eaten at this pub several times and have found it very basic. This time I found it was terrible, the seats were dirty and the menus sticky. However we ordered our meals and bought drinks, the glasses didn't look very clean but it wasn't until I had drunk over half of my drink that I saw there was... More
