This review is covering three meals: two dinners and one lunch. All have been superb! The evening pizzas are beautifully cooked, with plenty of ingredients and great combinations. My mussels the other night were some of the best that I've ever had with some a rich, creamy sauce that had an almost overwhelming depth of flavour whilst not being overwhelming.... More

We stopped here as a threesome on our way westwards. The atmosphere here is pleasant, with a real fire and sofas as well as tables. The menu is very imaginative and we had three delicious choices of US deli inspired warm sandwiches. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pub has been extensively revamped, but obviously some time ago. There... More

Enjoyed the pizza here (and the beer too!). The Horse seems to be very popular so make sure you reserve a table.

Been here many times and the food is always good. I'd like it to do a better range of beer but that would be quibbling. I'd also like proper plates rather than slates but so good is the food, it isn't that important.

We were staying locally overnight and were recomended to come here due to the speciality - Pizzas. Thankfully they just managed to fit us in, as we hadnt booked. The focaccia starter was a real treat, chosen as I'd seen a lovely large loaf as we went past the kitchen area on the way to the table. We had a... More

A local venue for us and we opted to take 5 people out for a Saturday night meal. We all enjoyed three courses and there is a good variety to suit all tastes and ages. Owners are very welcoming and staff excellent - we were served by Alex and she is a great asset to the business. We were not... More

Best pub I've ever been to. Beer's brilliant, food is bloody superb, especially the fish and seafood. Pizza's are legendary and you can also order those to takeaway.

Lovely old pub. The back has been modernised so that I think the old yard and stables make an exciting venue. There were 18 of us. Although I had booked the food in advance I made a coupe of mistakes. No problem at all for the owner who handled my error with humour and grace. The starters of Tapas were... More

Had the pleasure of having rather nice pint of ale in this pub. There is an extensive food menu. Although booking is advisable. Nicely decorated, and furnished, and very helpful staff.
