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.

Ok so we have always not favoured this Chef and Brewer pub. However living 5 minutes away we thought we'd give it another chance. Thankfully it paid off. We were greeted promptly and our daughter was given a drawing pack which is much appreciated to help entertain small children. Food arrived and was delicious, we could not fault it, empty... More

If you're heading towards the royal forester then stop, turn around and come here. Better food better value and fantastic service. The game menu which was on promo at the time was fantastic. I WILL be returning to this pub when I'm next passing through and look forward to the return of the game menu.

Dined with friends at the Running Horse on Friday 6th March 2015. Sarah and Marie looked after us with the usual professional service. These people have become our friends. I would add that these 2 ladies always make sure everything is in order and always check from time to time to see if we are ok. The food on this... More

Have visited The Running Horse several times, however this one was not their finest hour, ordered the Gourmet Burger which had zero taste and the Creamy Fish Pie with mash, were still looking for the mash! Also served with cabbage and carrots, which didnt seem to fit the dish. We wont be rushing back!

We enjoyed another nice relaxing lunch here midweek. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is always of the same reliable standard. My only criticism is that it still says the pub opens at 11am on the web site but every time we;ve been it hasn't opened until noon, unless they intend to open at 11am in the... More

We have eaten at the Running Horse several times over the last 2 years, it has been OK. We had lunch there today and the experience was not good, we had to wait quite a long time for the meal and when it arrived the vegetables were only lukewarm, also the carrots were bullet-hard. Other diners were complaining. I guess... More

We had not been there for years and we decided to give it a go. We booked before hand which was advisable. It was a Sunday and so, as you would expect, roasts were on the menu along with a full bar menu and some specials. I am normally concerned by a large selection as I wonder how much of... More
