“Burger and a pint lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Less than a fiver for burger, chips and a pint of Strongbow - excellent value. Burger not gourmet cuisine but certainly better than a BigMac

“Good pub grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We go here a lot as it's local - the menu is a hungry horse standard - good service, food hot and nicely cooked - nothing overly special, but nice for a "can't be asked to cook mid-week meal". Can be crowded on match days as it's just up the road from Cov City ground.

“Just had a meal there save your money and go to the chippy.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

Just had a meal there save your money and go to the chippy.
Chef can't cook suppose to be well done steak came out raw, ordered mash and they brought out chips. Also the chef does not know what the meals come with most of the sides where missing no sour cream not salsa no peppers.
Service was ok but meal was horrible thank you for making my birthday meal so so nice.

“didn't seem bothered”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2011

visited here on a sunday late afternoon. there was football on the tv. the eating area was not busy but not empty. it looked as if business was steady.
we all had a roast dinner. not much wrong with it even if it was the typical 'strangely all cooked in 10 minutes dinner' you always get at this sort of place.
where it falls down is the service. when you order at the bar, they just don't seem interested or bothered. they don't point out any specials or offers you may have missed or have any information about anything. it wasn't the most comfortable i have felt in a pub.
the portions were too small for the price too. we have been to two 'Hungry Horse' pubs now and have been underwhelmed both times. we won't use a hungry horse pub again.
