Seriously couldn't fault our visit to the Horse & Chains. Friendly service and amazing food. The smoked short-rib was delicious - too much meat!!!! The only disappointment was the Apple Tart tatin. Would highly recommend.

Came here as a group of 8. Left very satisfied with the quality of food. Nice staff and restaurant. There were 3 choices of roast, plenty of veg, potatoes and the kids options were just as good. Will return!
