It's a very friendly pub and the food nicely presented . Outstanding for me was the "sharing platter", either with meat fish or vegetarian, with lovely fresh bread.

Unfortunately the service was below par. Yes the pub was very busy and yes the staff were rushing around - but I honestly feel as though we could have... More

Was hoping for a better experience. Basic food. Prices were OK. Good choice of beers. The pub has been recently been refurbished and the food needs to improve.

The rampant horse is the oldest pub in the town and has been beautifully restored and very cosy. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. We will be going back . In all five... More

Called in here for lunch. Staff friendly and attentive. I would have liked jacket potato which they don't do, so went for chicken salad instead, was lovely and lots of it! My friend had the brunch, wasn't overly large but again was lovely meal and served hot. Staff asked several times if everything was OK or if we needed anything... More

This charming comfortable pub has a warm and friendly atmosphere, the staff were pleasant and helpful, the food was of a good standard and well cooked, they also serve a nice pint of real ale. For the comfort and quality the Rampant Horse provides we found the prices reasonable and will return when next in Needham Market.

We serve the amazing craft lagers and ales brewed fresh by Calvors just a stones throw away, alongside a great locally sourced menu. After aquiring the pub in 2012 we set about refurbishing the charming 16th centuary building into a warm and welcoming freehouse. In July, soon after opening; we were delighted to win the Best Turnaround Pub in East Anglia, in The Morning Advertiser's pub awards.
