Nice refurbishment

We haven't visited this pub for several years; sorry to sound a snob but it does have the unfortunate reputation as being 'a bit rough'. We had heard it had been refurbished so went in this afternoon & it was the first day opened after the refit. First impressions were great - it looks amazing! The... read more

Visited the running horse Friday 24th July for a meal with my wife and daughter must say first impressions spot on looked like a 5 star american style restaurant the horses give that good local impression. But would have giving a better impression if the staff payed more attention to the customers instead of each other talking about the plans... More

Food was pretty awful today, they didn't have much in as there is an upcoming refurbished. Poor choice for vegetarians like myself basically had a choice of a potato pie (on a hot day like today - no thanks) or macaroni cheese. Went for the macaroni cheese, which was basically an overpriced microwave meal, not nice :-( partner got the... More

Visit often as its local. It has great value pub grub and a wide menu. Service can vary from time to time but never had a bad meal or sticky table. Week days are usually quiet and service prompt.

Firstly the food in the pub has always been fairly decent, well priced and good portions. The only issue I've had in there is at weekends. It's like societies grimmest individuals gathered in one place, and to call it rough is an understatement. It's definitely not a good place for genuine families on a weekend. I think it's ok mid...

After having a disappointing breakfast at the local harvester. We thought we'd try the all day breakfast at the running horse. It was fab. Can't fault it. The staff were very attentive and the food came out quickly. It was cooked perfectly, hot and delicious. Definitely improved here lately.

Things have definitely improved here recently. My roast was amazing for the price. It's a good place for a basic value for money family meal.

I think that the running horse is a really good place to go and meet up with friends or family. Great atmosphere and lovely food that you can actually afford. I hope that I will have the chance to go back there again and I would definitely recommend
