Following a recommendation, we went to The Coach and Horses for an evening meal and were not disappointed…indeed, although we were only in the area for four days, we went back a second time. The menu choice, our meals, the surroundings and staff resulted in our excellent dining experience there.

Great village pub/restaurant on the A515,looks the business, scrubbed tables,open fire, plenty of room, great welcome, outstanding beer. Sadly though the food was a disappointment, I went for the chicken curry dish off the specials at £12.95 and found it almost tasteless and not a great portion, plenty of rice though and served with a salad garnish of lettuce, carrot...

Stayed nearby and came on recommendation. The food was great and very reasonable. I found the dinning part of the pub a bit odd (bright and cafe like - went on a Saturday eve) and lacked the charm of the bar area. I would recommend though as the food was great :)

Had a lovely meal yesterday, I chose off the menu and Mum ordered off the specials board, it was a late lunch, so no Chef but this did not stop the food being lovely and the service was great, just the right time between courses. Had a sharing platter to start, then salmon and trout, too many potatoes and vegetables... More

This is a wonderful pub. We visited on a Saturday night. Got a nice table. Atmosphere was very relaxed. The service was really friendly and helpful. Food was superb, made from locally sourced ingredients. I had a particularly excellent steak. The Barnsley Chop they do is also highly recommended. Cheeseboard and desserts were excellent and a lovely end to a... More

Three of us went to the Coach and Horses and had a fab meal. Good selection of beers ciders and lagers. The gentleman who ran the pub was lovely, very chatty and made us feel very welcome. There is a main menu and a specials board. Plenty of sections to sit in and can accommodate larger parties. The food was... More

Had a gorgeous meal at the Coach & Horses on Saturday 29 Aug 15. My friend who often eats here said the food was good and she was spot on., it was delicious and plenty of it. I hate coming away from a meal still feeling hungry not on this occasion, the food was freshly cooked and plentiful. Price wise... More
