Really, this place is faultless. The pub is also well maintained and well presented. Bravo chef And brewer, particularly the team at the running horse. You've got a lot... More

Arrived and was pointed to a table and was told a waitress would be with us in a moment, sat at table over 20 minutes and many waitresses walked past us and we were never acknowledged, no drinks or menus were offered even though they were not overly busy. So we walked out and we will not be returning. Terrible... More

The service by the waitress was below average anytime she approached us she acknowledged only my husband - no eye contact my way apart from when she asked me what I wanted to order.... More

Here we have a lovely building in a lovely location, but a little disappointed with the service and long delay in our meal arriving. Fresh and tasty when our vegetarian risotto finally arrived but on a not too busy week night it took too long.
