We have been to this place a few times and went again for a Birthday Meal. I had the Prawn cocktail to start with and others had the deep fried squid. All starters were a good size and delicious. Everyone had steak for the main except one of us had the mixed grill which was huge! The onion rings are... More

Always the Sunday lunch is excellent, we eat there at least 6 times a year, the mixed meats is very good, but my wife always has chicken with leek and Stilton sauce.

Just got back from the 3rd meal I've had here with my girlfriend. Each time has been really good! They have a huge menu which is great! Because if your not sure what you fancy, the menu is so varied it will inspire you. There are also plenty of vegetarian options, which is important to us when we choose where... More

We have been eating at the Shorthorn pub for a number of years now and we have yet to ever have a bad meal here or ever complain about the service. We attended today with our son for the Sunday lunch at 1200 (when doors open). What I will say is make sure you get there dead on if you... More

Visited with friends in September & was very disappointed. Service was slow throughout even though it was quiet. Food was ok but not the best and normal standard they produce. Constantly waiting on staff to come to the table and we gave up on pudding after waiting more than 30 minutes to even see a dessert menu having asked twice.... More

It's not a bad spot at all - great drive out through the country, good spacious bar etc and lots of covers. Menu for Sunday is fairly standard roasts but came without too much delay, was hot and decent sized portion. Was busy with all walks of life and the place caters for the masses - and there's the rub.... More
