This is a nice chain pub and breakfast was quite nice. I think the prices were ok too. It is in a good location also.

Visited here for Saturday lunch. The restaurant was busy but service was pretty good. The food arrived in reasonable time and was very good. Improvement on the last time we visited over a year ago. We will certainly return here soon.

Looks nice, staff could be a little but friendlier. Food average, but better than going to a fast foods place. Seating was comfortable

My partner and I decided to visit the Hungry Horse as we had a gift voucher to use. I am not a fan of chain restaurants but what a lovely surprise it was. The restaurant was bright and very clean and well laid out with an over 18 area for folks who want to dine away from children's. The menu... More

Don't think people would go back to this place if they've tried the food. Frozen, microwaved, all ready made, not even cooked properly. Dirty table, dirty cutlery, staff as if in come, not responsive, not interested. I mean seriously?
