“Bad food, horrible service :(”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Party of 5 on a Friday night. Server mixed up all drink orders. Then the servers attitude changed quickly, like no use in stepping it up....already screwed the drinks up. The Brie was excellent. 2 steak orders came out cold, then they were reheated and returned. Meal done, food bill given, server took over 20 minutes to return for check....and only then when I tried to pay the barkeep. A few hours later, I was sick to my stomach. Sick all night until mid-morning. Bangers and mash and one roll.

“Horsey Set”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Locals place with a happy hour crowd of horsey folks. Rustic, comfy decor. Friendly vibe. The spinach salad with poppyseed dressing was good. The guiness white sauce for the mussels was heavily salted (so much so that we almost sent it back). The shepard's pie with cheesy crust was good. The rest room was clean. Good service from Robin. I would have given this a very good rating if it weren't for the salty mussels. Will defintely visit again.

“Good food, but pricey!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Food and service were good, but for the price, we expected bigger portions. However, some dishes can be rich, so choose carefully! Servers were friendly, and atmosphere was pleasant. I would recommend it for lunch. It's less expensive then, for the same good food.

“Its a staple of Ocala, but I don't know why.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

I have been here a couple times and it does have it strong points (their salad) but they also have alot of bad aspects. Their menu is lacking variety and is pretty expensive. But most importantly their service is always bad. Even when they are dead, the still are too busy to give good service. If their service was better it would not be so bad, but seriously it sucks.
