My husband loves it because of the beer they brew. I have found the meals there hit or miss. It is often hard to find a good vegetarian option. Great for a brew, not my favorite place for dinner.

Food service took a very long time & then the entrees were mediocre. Absolutely do not recommend. Amherst has better restaurants at more reasonable prices.

The high horse is a decent place to get a drink (mostly beer) and a meal in downtown Amherst; very close walking distance to the Lord Jeffery Inn. I went there on my first night in town in search of a late-night beer and found...More

Came in a group of four during the week, and the place was quite empty - so not a great atmosphere. A number of items on the menu were 'not available', and surprisingly a few beers were not available either. The food was fine -...More

I'm not sure that anyone who works for the restaurant watches this website. You'll have to call them on the phone.
