Decided to try the High Horse after a recommendation from some colleagues. Unsure what they saw because none in our party of 4 were impressed. We decided to dine outside after noting the dark, dreary, interior. It took about 45 minutes for our meals to...More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on our way home. The server was very attentive and the food and drinks were good. We would definitely recommend!

On a lovely spring evening in Amherst, we were seeking a fine outdoor dining experience at high horse. Sadly that is not what we received. We were a party of two that both ordered salads, and our food took almost an hour to come out...More

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

I've been to High Horse many times through my four years at UMass. I personally have always enjoyed their food, pretty standard pub feel. Good burgers, salads, sandwiches (My personal favorite is the blackened salmon), and overall a very cool hipster vibe. Although a bit...More

Awful. Greasy fries, burnt from the bottom of the barrel. Mushy veggie burger with no flavor. Clam chowder w/bacon (weird) and it tasted bitter, sour and smoky. Tomato soup was like it was tomatoes in a blender and heated up. Watery, odd. I won't go...More

Solid food and good drinks. Menu is an interesting mix - some traditional bar food and some more unusual things like Moroccan meatballs. Service as good, not stellar. Nice atmosphere. Would go there again.
