Not only superb food but very friendly service, a must if your near, small but very cosy, lots of little rooms, a nice welcome as you enter and a cheerful goodbye as though your a local all in all a lovely evening

We are regulars at the Coach and Horses and have never had anything other than a great meal. We can thoroughly recommend the steaks that are excellent and always cooked to perfection, however required. Ollie is a brilliant landlord making sure anyone who visits has a lovely time.

Had Sunday lunch with the family ranging in age from 14 to over 80. There was something on the menus to suit everyone from burgers to a choice of roast's and steaks. Some good starters and a large selection of sweets. Portion sizes good and a selection of seasonal vegetables. What you expect from a good traditional country pub.

Visited on our way to a nearby holiday rental, what a place ...stacks of character with a real village pub feel. Service was excellent from the landlord to the waitress could not fault anything, between us we ordered many varying dishes...it was obviously freshly cooked, with not too long to wait it arrived and what a meal it was.... not...

Very busy on Sat night but service generally good until the end of the night Good choice of food including 5/6 blackboard specials Perhaps our choice of food was unlucky as on 2 meals the meat was tough. Very good portions and choice of vegetables Worth another visit

Looked at Buckland Brewer today and found the The Coach and Horses. What a lovely old pub. The few locals in were jolly and welcoming and the food was ample and good. A special recommendation would be the Beef and Stilton Panini, served with a huge portion of really fresh salad it was scrumptious.
