Not a tranquil dining experience.

Select what you want, note your table number and pay at the bar. Two courses for £4.49 don't expect too much. Soup and roll ok, but main of steak and kidney pie, mash and peas not very hot or tasty with lumpy gravy on the side. Children on the loose and noisy ambience, not rushing back there.

The hungry horse chain is known for its reasonably priced food and drink.which is of a reasonable standard. The old saying is true. You get what you pay for. However, having said that the food is good if you just want your usual pub fare. The popularity of the place speaks for.itself. We decided to try breakfast there and were... More

Sure, it's a chain, and it's very much of the "we'll give you far more food than you could possibly eat at a stupidly low price" variety, but if that's what you're in the mood for then they're hard to beat. Cheap, food is plentiful and better quality than you would probably have expected. Of course it's not fine dining,... More

I dint understand how this place operates. They don't seem to have anyone working there. I only enter saw two people that looked like staff but when I tried to speak to them to ask for a table for me and my 6 guests, they just looked at me as if I was bothering then and walked away.

Tried taking my family out to have a birthday dinner, and this sounded great according to reviews. Arrived and walked in and it just seemed like a circus. Kids screaming and running everywhere. Noise was unbearable. There was no one to greet or seat so we stood there for ages before we realised no one was coming. So we just... More
