We organised for a small wedding reception at the Running Horses in the lovely back room, a quiet pub with great atmosphere. . I have to say the team put in every effort to make our 30 guests welcome, from the amazing canapés out in the court yard to the incredible 3 course meal with multiple choice of starters and mains. Our host Joao was simply the warmest and attentive manager of the team, making us and our guests feel special and fully catered for. A big thank you to Luke for his care and support during our event. With a lovely meal and a bit of celebratory dancing it was an incredible evening.
I must also say the rooms are lovely as we had all seven rooms for family and friends making breakfast a relaxed and sociable event without the normal bustle of people moving around you. Thank you Running Horses.
A village pub with rooms and a surprising
dining room. Service seemed slow at first
and then starters came including fresh
local tomatoes followed by a duck breast,
cooked rare as asked. The food was good
and for pub food it was very, very good
We arrived & waited ages to check in but it was Father's Day & they were very busy. Staff & we think the owner at breakfast, were helpful & friendly. Our room, Windsor, was comfy but a tad tired. Dinner OK but breakfast no gluten free bread, though we'd requested.
A fine pub with a long history. The bedrooms are comfortable, the bar convivial, and the food delicious and elegantly presented. I must enter one caveat, which concerns the room prices. This is a 3 * village pub, no matter how you spin it. £140 per night is overpriced and, in my opinion, unsustainable. For three nights in Mickleham you can have a week's self-catering in Portugal inclusive of flights. How does that work? English hoteliers are forever moaning about occupancy figures, yet they are the very people responsible for swelling the foreign holiday market. The ones who do keep their feet on the ground are rewarded with repeat bookings and high occupancy rates. So enjoy a wonderful weekend at the Running Horses, but be prepare to pay for it.
We went for an overnight stay and meal to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was first class and the staff very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We had a lovely view of the old church across the road from our room. We will certainly return again. My husband really appreciated the rang of whisky's available in the whisky bar!
