Having visited the Shorthorn only a few weeks ago with a friend and had a good pub meal, we booked this for my brothers birthday for 6 of us on a Wednesday evening in the restaurant. There were around 4 other parties in the pub, some couples and a four so not a busy night at all . The food... More

From start to finish the experience at the shorthorn was brilliant. Booked the table the night before but realised we needed to change it. When we called the second time the staff were very understanding and lovely on the phone. The meals were fantastic- brilliant quality! The parmo doesn't come with a salad but can be ordered (I believe for... More

Having been recommended this pub I decided to give it a try when relatives came to visit. The food was excellent and the portions were plenty. Very tasty we all agreed and shall go again perhaps during the week.

Came to this country pub for sunday lunch as it seemed to be reasonably well reviewed. But I forget most people don't have taste buds these days and can't prepare anything if they aren't putting it into the microwave or driving into a Macdonalds to poison their kids. Like a tin of Big Soup. It does what is says, you... More

I met a friend for a catch up and some good pub food and that's exactly what we got. Good portions and nicely cooked food. The disappointment was that there was not much to choose from for my friend with food allergies and she had to opt for the gammon as it was the most neutral dish with no dairy... More

Had been recommended this place a few times and finally got there tonight. And I have to say it didn't disappoint, the food was lovely and of high quality, veg and salad lovely and fresh, the two girls running the bar and restaurant were excellent, we have booked a table for next week and look forward to our return.

I love to visit the Shorthorn when we are in the area visiting family, it is one of the friendliest, nicest atmospheres around and the choice of the menu and the standard of the food is exceptional. We will look forward to our next visit!

Second review for this lovely pub, really nice staff and food is perfect, highly recommended. Had a lovely rump steak and my daughter the duck in orange and apricot sauce, huge portion of fresh veg and really nice side salad, had to wait a little while but it was worth it.

What a beautiful Sunday lunch. Massively busy but still excellent service and the food was perfect as usual. Veg done to perfection, with the meat plentiful and beautifully moist. We were all a little sinful and had pudding: Chef Special bread & butter pudding was the best he'd had according to my husband. Never had a bad meal in all... More
