I don't know where the last reviewer was on about but it almost certainly wasn't here! We popped in off the cuff & were greeted like regulars, extremely warm welcome & friendly service made us feel comfortable straight away.

We ordered a lot of food ranging from side dishes to the main courses because we weren't aware of the portion size, lets just say the sides were not eaten!

I think people get carried away when reviewing, this is not Hestons restaurant nor does it claim to be, however if you want a brilliant meal in a great venue with lovely people then this is for you.

I'd say the only negative was that I didn't have space to eat it all!

If we are ever in the vicinity again ill make sure we stop here.

Don't make the mistake of thinking The Racehorse is just another run of the mill pub with chips spilled on the side yes portions are huge but this is one of the few places that can mix quantity with quality also 13.75 for a 16oz rump is incredible value

We visited the Racehorse inn on the 23rd of December for our 23rd wedding Anniversary as a treat from our children. A very warm welcome from the owner and other staff, the food was excellent and we all left with very full tummys. Recieved a free bottle of wine as a gift for our Anniversary. The pub itself was decorated for Christmas and really got us in the Christmas spirit! A lovely treat, will definitely be returning and would recommend a visit to anyone.
