We went on spec to dine at this pub and on a very cold night the warm open fire and friendly atmosphere were very welcome. The menu was varied and the food when it came was well cooked and most enjoyable. I recommend it for a small number of diners

We had lunch here on a Friday between Christmas and New Year. I made a reservation and I am glad that I did because it got very busy and we probably wouldn't have got in otherwise. Our lunch was delicious, I had the Baked Camembert with toasted Focaccia bread and a fruit jam - yummy. My husband had the Sausages... More

After many good recommendations to eat at The Coach and Horses, we booked for a birthday treat. Chose two starters: Chilli beef was nice but the Chilli Tigers Prawns with Pak Choi turned out to be shredded lettuce! Main course of sirloin steak was good but unfortunately the pheasant was dry, chewy and very over cooked together with over cooked... More

This popular pub can get very busy at weekends and in the evenings but for lunch mid week it is excellent. We like the bar to the right of the entrance and as it is dog friendly it is ideal. The choice of food is limited and simple but well cooked and imaginative. The lunch menu includes dishes such as... More

We enjoyed a Sunday lunch here last week, it was the first time we have been here and were not disappointed, the location is beautiful and quaint and the food was delicious. It's a good local, cosy pub that gets busy so would advise booking.

Had a nice meal there were six of us we all had meals from the Christmas Menu in fact we all had the Turkey it was very good the only criticism is there were no sprouts I know everyone doesn't like them but Christmas Dinner without them doesn't seem right.

Met with 2 friends for Friday lunch. The short rib beef on the menu was the best I have ever eaten anywhere. I found it so difficult to decided which pudding to choose as they were all a little different and all sounded delicious. I need to return to sample the rest! Congratulations

Had a great lunch in the cosy bar . Gorgeous food well cooked and very welcoming staff. Water bought for dogs and roaring fire to sit by. Very relaxing would definitely return!!

On Monday night we had a memorable meal, cooked to perfection, with a fine wine chosen for us. Just us and a table for 10 as it was Monday, but it wasn't at all a Monday meal. First class and delightful young lady served us.
