Meal quality was good, surroundings were comfortable, and staff were friendly. The menu had a good selection of mains, and the daily specials are very good value.

Review collected in partnership with Greene King

We were passing by, visiting family and stopped off for a meal. Massive lovely pub from the outside, and we weren't disappointed when we got inside. Very friendly and efficient staff, very warm and welcoming, (new friendly owners) great atmosphere and decor made us feel we had made the right decision to visit. Our meals came out in no time...

Often visit the hungry horse as either a late group for birthdays or just our family of 3, always great food for the price, tasty meals and large portions! Only ever received poor service once when the restaurant were extremely busy and admittedly by them were short staffed other than that very good!

Friday night could not have come sooner. Therefore neither of us, the better half and I could be nothered to cook. Hence a trip to the Oxon. The husband is on a diet but really wanted something substantial but low in fat. I just wanted the lovely fish and chips. Hubby had the megasauras rump steak cooked medium rare. I... More

I visited here last week for lunch having given it a miss following a poor report from close friends about their visit. They had complained about the poor service, standard of food and attitude of staff so I was a little apprehensive. I am pleased to say that the food was of a high standard - plentiful and hot. The...

We visited the hungry horse oxen and we were pleasantly surprised after reading the reviews! Food was timely, hot and really good value for money. The staff were helpful & friendly and appear to have a good leader after over hearing a bit of a motivational speech from the manager. Only thing that could of been improved was the volume... More

Called in here on the way back to our caravan after a look around Shrewsbury. Service was OK. Food was mediocre, and they forgot the onion rings on one meal, which consisted of five things. It was remedied after I went chasing the waitress. Nobody came to ask if the meals were OK. Probably had too many bad answers.

We booked a table of 12 early in the week for 7pm as we had small children. Arrived @ 6.45 and told they'd given our table to someone else so had to wait. We ordered food straight away as we wanted to feed the kids, after buying 4 more rounds of drinks we gave up and asked for a refund.... More
