turned up at a very busy Running Horse today, didn't have a reservation, but was soon directed to a table for two. Lots of choice on the menu, but we both decided on the Sunday Lunch. Our starters and the dessert were outstanding, but unfortunately the trio of meats roast dinner was very mediocre and quite frankly not worth the... More

We went here for food after a trip to the Safari park nearby, as we were staying at a local campsite and this place was convenient. It also helped that we had Tesco Clubcard vouchers to pay for our food! There were 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 children, and we all enjoyed our food. We all had 3... More

We were here for a Birthday Celebration on my brothers birthday. We've been a number of times before and never been quite as disappointed! We were greeted on arrival and shown to our table. We duly ordered drinks at the table with the waitress... we waited and waited and waited.. Eventually we managed to catch the eye of one of... More

Me and my girlfriend visited the Running Horse for lunch around a week ago and both really enjoyed the food. I had the Stilton and Peppercorn Mushroom starter (£3) which was the ideal size and very flavour-some. My girlfriend then had the Pulled Pork baguette which again was very flavour-some and a good size. I had the Creamy Chicken and... More

It's been a while since I've been here for a meal. My daughter wanted to go for her 9th birthday meal. I arrived with the cake and asked the staff if they could pop it in the fridge. They allowed us to blow some balloons up and even took some away to fill with Helium. The meal was lovely. The... More

I visited the Running Horse with my family to celebrate a birthday. Our table was booked for 5pm and we firstly ordered some starters to share as soon as the waitress came around. We also ordered our mains at this time too. The starters took around one hour to arrive and to be fair were great apart from the lack... More

Have been coming to this pub on and off for 30 years and we have seen a lot of changes. It's never been haute cuisine but a steady and dependable (if a little higher priced than similar pubs). We dropped in on a Sunday around 5:30 ish after a long drive back from Plymouth and told there could be a... More

We waited over half an hour for a table. Then ordered our starter which was ok then it all went downhill from there . We had to wait 90 minutes for our main meal which we had to ask for and when it arrived was Luke warm and not cooked properly. We were so fed up we didn't bother to... More

Have always enjoyed eating here , great selection of food well presented in lovely surroundings. Have not visited for a while so really noticed how much smaller the portion sizes had become. Two of the meals were tasty but again no where near the size they used to be. My chicken Kiev was small, dry with no runny garlic butter... More
