“bad”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

i used to both work and occasionally eat here, but never again. glasses are left on the side of the bar, tables take ages to get cleaned. the kitchen isnt the best kept but decently clean though. the staff are ok but not overly friendly. so you wont get much of a conversation from them.

id say dont go, go to the highway man

“Last visit to Hungry Horse”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We've been a frequent customer of this chain for several years and noticed out regular pub has been in steady decline for some time, so when we were presented with a leaving do, we felt this was a good opportunity to experience another pub in the Hungry Horse chain,

Unfortunately, it just confirmed what we already suspected - the food and service in these establishments is going down the pan. We went as a group and some had finished their meal before ours arrived. despite ordering within minutes of each other, plus when the food came it was either dry, burnt or reheated.

We then had to wait 20 minutes for the dessert for the kids, which was explained away as "we are really busy" or "the ice cream machine has a delay".

Don't bother wasting your cash on this place. Pizza Hut et al are starting to raise to the challenge and actually starting to deliver on the standard of service and quality expected. Unfortunately, Hungry Horse will not be getting any more of our loyalty in future as was once a very good chain of pub grub has now reached a new low.

Kitchen can get very busy, food is sometimes overcooked and left waiting on hotplates in the kitchen... Ok if you are happy with that

“Poor food, no matter the price.”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

These places tend to be large quantities of so so food. However, the couple of times I have been dragged here the portions are small; which to be honest isn't a bad thing as the food was very poor.

If my mates want to eat here again, I'll grab a pint and then a few packets of crisps rather than ordering from the menu!

“Pub grub!”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Typical Hungry Horse style establishment. Service was top notch for this type of restaurant. Food was well cooked, and tasty. Great place for lunch at the weekends.
