A really nice pub with a great atmosphere. Nice and airy and staff welcoming. I will say though that I’m really not a lover of Hungry Horse food but it’s ok once in a while. It’s what I’d call ‘brown food’, tasty but unhealthy, full...of fat, sugar and salt and often fairly dried up. I also don’t like ‘plastic chips’ or microwaved meals. But it’s good value and am happy to visit at times. We had a great family gathering and enjoyed our visit. Until next time 🤪More

First visit to this Hungry Horse pub/restaurant chosen mainly as it was serving breakfast from 8am on a Saturday. Full English was quite substantial, 2 bacon, sausage, beans ,2 Hash Browns, mushrooms and a fried egg cooked perfectly. I paid extra for toast and tea...but it still only cost £5, fantastic value. Pub itself is large, bright and has a medium sized garden next to the railway line. Covid procedures followed, I saw the tables and menus being given a thorough cleaning while I was there. Staff very efficient and pleasant, I shall certainly returnMore
