Meal for me was average but family with children loved the whole package which was one adult one child eats free ! What a great savings on a Monday night - some meals were really good others average but overall a good experience

We have been here many times. Its always been fine family fare. Always adequate, sometimes excellent. Unfortunately, this Saturday, the place was fairly empty and we soon discovered why. The menu has been streamlined, no pizza for the kids. Just fish fingers or similar with chips. My steak was fine. But very pricey. Everything was fine. Except for the cheesecake.... More

Service slow , staff that just don't care, gluten free options non exsistant (not even gluten free bread)This place needs to move into the 21st century or the business will not survive

Been here before and was awesome. Very disappointed this time. Service very slow. Had a long wait before our drinks arrived. Childs food was all chips and 2 chicken tenders. Chicken parmigiano was obviously bulk cooked... Burger with side of 2 eggs.. eggs arrived 5 mins before meal. Didnt look like enough staff on. Very disappointed. Wont be back.

Easy to book at table, lovely friendly staff, they cater for the whole family, delicious food and the kids are entertained with "draw a picture" on the menu while you wait - which isnt very long - the service is switched on and quick! excellent prices, we love sitting by the roaring fire or in one of the cozy booths...

Description
The restaurant, One Good Horse, has a feel reminiscent of the by-gone era of early 1900's horse racing days. Its early 20th century-infused decor holds an echo of the times when prosperity and the great horses had people flocking to the races; taking their chances on the big names and champions like Phar Lap, Seabiscuit and Cardigan Bay.
