Cosy little place - food a bit hit and miss

I've visited The Running Horse several times just for drinks, but also for 3 course meals. At all times the service has been friendly and welcoming, although at times a little slow. Food has been beautiful, home-cooked style and well worth the money on some occasions, but other times it has been a... read more

Booked for a meal Sunday, was seated quickly and served with drinks, food order taken and brought in good time, ordered one roast beef Sunday lunch and one rump steak. Roast beef lunch was delicious as was the steak, just one point, the steak came with mushrooms as they had run out of tomato, luckily we had no mushroom allergies!!... More

We are currently 'touring' the pub restaurants of Bewdley and Kidderminster every Friday evening as our regular 'local' has recently become less than satisfactory. We used to live near to The Running Horse in Bewdley but haven't visited for some years and we had mixed feelings about it as we have had both amazing and terrible eating experiences there before.It...

My wife and I visited today with our one year old. The manager claim straight over and asked if we were ok. He found us a nice table and sorted out a high chair for the little one. The waitress claim over with menu's and asked us for our drinks order. So far so good. When the food came, it... More

I really cannot understand why this restaurant is rated 34 out of a possible 40. Its totally ridiculous. The food we had today was, although basic, absolutely lovely. However, the apple pie was probably the nicest I have ever tasted. Sarah and Dawn as usual were very friendly and professional (service with a smile). These guys always aim to please.... More

We had our dinner during our summer and Christmas holiday here because it is child friendly, food served from 12 til late and it has a good selection of food. We enjoyed the risotto, lamb shank, burgers, and of course the desserts. All of which were good. We will come back for more in our next holiday in February.

Sunday Roast would suggest meat but here you will be looking very hard for the meat, I paid the premium of £13.99 for Lamb shoulder and there was hardly any meat. The only reason I've given 2 stars is for the veg which was quite good. If they spent more time on quantity and quality of meat instead of trying... More
