My meal was cold but my partners was hot yet we had the same meal. Starter came after our main as they forgot and I had to ask them for it. Also no butter with the starter.

Although very quiet when we was there (early evening) & plenty of staff, service was very slow. In fact we had nearly finished our meal when they found they forgot to bring my grand daughters food to her. I was about to get more drinks when the waiter said he would get them, I thanked him and left him to... More

When to wacky warehouses for children's party went down a treat kids loved it. Went upstairs for a meal afterwards. The food was excellent came quickly even though quite a lot in the group. We had box of deserts others had icecream from icecream parlour loads to choose from overall experience was great. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

A nice location for a family meal, those with younger children will like the facilities. Choosing from a standard menu that has all the usual favourites, it`s easy to order and service is generally quick. It’s not find dining but worth a visit for the family.

Visited the Hungry Horse on 10th December with 17 family members. Everyone's meal was piping hot, well presented and extremely tasty. All the staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be going back.

This was our first visit and we would certainly visit again. The food was great value as the portion sizes were large. Had the doughballs and chicken wings for starters, which were big portions for a starter. Had the chicken and rib feast and chicken tikka. These were great value for the size and quality. Loved our meal and will... More

Went here for my sons birthday this evening. He has used this place many times before, so was happy for us to try the newly refurbished hungry horse. We had eaten at a hungry horse in Telford the week before & it was excellent food & value for money, so we too were looking forward to it. We noticed when... More
