A large pub with plenty of parking, lots of seating and TV screens for sport if that's your thing, there are also tables and booths that are out of the way if it's not. They have a large menu with all of the usual suspects on it along with some additional stuff. There are offers on nearly every day for... More

Well, I'm not...why is it everytime I call in here between 4pm and 6pm there is only one member of staff working. AND taking food orders as well. You'de think there would be more staff to cater for those calling in on their way home from work.

No service at all. Most of tables reserved but nobody used them. Waited over 40 minutes for tables to be cleared. Food cold. Waited over 30 mins for desserts. Toilets had excrement smeared on floor

The restaurant area smelt terrible, the toilets were smelly and freezing cold. The food was average and although there was a child's menu they had to eat with giant sized cutlery and when I asked for something my child could use I was given a teaspoon. Not once did staff approach is to ask if we were ok and the... More

The runner is quiet close to where I live so iv been their a number of times for food and I can genuinely say that I have never had a great experience here. It's labelled as a budget option but I'm afraid even as a budget option it's expensive for what you get. Also being a budget option does not... More

I came with family to the hungry horse for a meal. I was served by Eve. She was incredibly polite and welcoming. Best service I have had in a while! Definitely coming here again!

If you are out for a lunch or coffee this place is okay but nothing special . It cannot help its location but the coffee is good and hot. The place is accessible if you are disabled and have good disabled toilets.

It's cheap food, what more can you say it's fine for families. It does get really busy though so choose your time to visit wisely as you may wait a while
