Had a wonderful lunch here. The food was excellent, as was the service. Add cosy surroundings in a delightful setting, it could not be improved.

The entrance up a back stair to our bedroom was dirty and the carpet stained, it also passed the kitchen which was noisy and none to clean. The bedroom itself was poorly equipped, sheets clean but unironed. The shower room and toilet should have been gutted a long time ago. The toilet was not only stained but had clearly been... More

We had the most splendid Sunday Lunch here - 3 roast beef and 1 chicken.The portions were more than generous and accompanied with an excellent selection of vegetables including cauliflower. Cheese, orange and purple carrots and cabbage. It was wonderful, such a great find!

Had a lovely Sunday lunch with family having been at a family wedding at Ellingham Hall the previous day (we were staying in the beautiful Ellingham cottages). We booked on the same morning so were pleased to be acccommodated at short notice. Absolutely fantastic food and ales and excellent service in a great little pub. Highly recommended

Visited the Pack Horse for the first time in many years today. We received a warm, friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent as was the wine. The Pack Horse was the perfect place for our lunch and it won't be long before we go back to try something else from the menu.

Popped in here for a quick snack whilst spending the weekend away for a birthday treat, forgetting it was a Sunday!! Ended up with a roast beef baguette for the husband and I plumped for a half portion roast chicken dinner, as it sounded like the smallest option (after a full cooked english breakfast and a 3 course evening meal...

We went to have Sunday lunch here by default, as I'd phoned another pub in the area, and twice they asked me to call back to make a lunch reservation. We then found The Pack Horse online, and how glad we were to change our plans. The bar area is small, and inviting with a cosy log fire burning in... More

we went here when staying in Ellingham. A cozy environment with good pub food. Lovely wine and great service. And we could walk there from the cottage!
