Great tasting tapas with good service.
We visited with parents on a Saturday shortly after the tapas menu had started.
Portion sizes were adequate & filling. Recommend max of 3 per person.
Quality of the food was great. Especially the ox cheek @ £8.95. Slow cooked for 8 hours & delicious. Much of the food was made on site as well. Which makes a change to the Bidvest fare available at so many restaurants.
Most tapas were c. £5.50 / £6.00 each though.
Fantastic cleanliness throughout & good spacing between tables also made us feel comfortable inside.
Service was also prompt, attentive & efficient.
The only small criticism I have is that is that some of the dishes we’re unavailable as they’d sold out.
Thanks once again.

This evening, we decided to try the Tapas Menu at the Coach and Horses. We were keen to get out after ease of Lockdown and keen to support a local pub.
We were not disappointed.
Staff are friendly and keen to please.
Whilst there is a good choice of dishes, we went for the 'Pick any 5 tapas dishes for £24.95'
Albondigos.
Spanish meatballs in tomato sauce
Pollo con Sumac
Chicken in a cream garlic sauce topped with sumac
Judias verdes y puerros
Green bean and leeks in herb butter
Pasta Alicante
Chicken and chorizo in tomato sauce
Patatas Braves
Diced potatoes topped with a paprika chilli and garlic tomato sauce

The Tapas exceeded our expectations.
Very good value.
The portions were of ample size and absolutely delicious. Compliments to the Chef

We will certainly be returning.
Thank you.
Good to see the pub open again.
Good to see Landlords visible.
Well done to Tommy and Chris and the Team.
Every success and see you soon

We booked a table for 1pm for 4 people and arrived at 12.45. We placed our order at 1pm prompt and eventually got out meals at 2.15pm! Despite 8 requests they did not take our desert order until 3.30pm and by 4pm I had to ask what was going. They came promptly after I chased. Fearful for the time it would take to get the bill I went inside and was presented with a bill that was over double of my estimate, it seemed they had got the wrong drinks and food levelled against the tables. It was a total mess. The food was excellent, the serving staff were very friendly and chatty but boy was it disorganised!

Went to the coach today for my first post lockdown lunch with friends. Car park at the rear. Sat in the lovely beer garden which Is a secluded, sun trap. Friendly greeting by staff. Quick service with drinks order and given menus. Ordered BLT, it was really nice and served with chips, salad and coleslaw for £6.95.
Efficient, friendly staff, really nice food at a reasonable price and the new owner was going round seeing everyone was ok.

Think this will be our new monthly lunch meet up place.

I didn’t have my children today but noticed a play area for the kids in the garden and also a gate and fence around the garden so very child friendly too.

My husband and I were staying in Dersingham for a long weekend. We had eaten here on previous visits over the years and had always enjoyed good food and drinks. Before we booked we were aware that new owners had recently taken on the Coach and Horses. Would it be the same, as good as previous visits? We pre-booked an evening meal and we were not disappointed. The food was superb - good portion size, flavoursome with lovely fresh vegetables, excellent quality and value for money.
We had the steak and kidney pudding and chicken and leek pie. We were so impressed we booked again for the following evening. Again, we thoroughly enjoyed our food, this time opting for the lamb shank and steak and ale pie.

All of the staff were helpful and friendly.

If you find yourself in the area I highly recommend a visit to the Coach and Horses.
We can't wait to visit again when back in Dersingham. Oh, and the craft ale isn't too bad either - well a very decent pint in fact.
