Food was good but the offers are very limited in my opinion. We enjoyed what we had and the atmosphere is lovely, very comfortable. The staff are helpful and cheery which would encourage a return visit. Just need bit more choice on the menu.

This is the type on bar restaurant that is very busy on weekends as the bar and restaurant are only separated by a few stairs going up one level, on the afternoon we visited the bar was not to busy and the noise level was okay but I can imagine that on days or evenings when they are very busy...

I recently visited the Houston Inn for lunch with my wife for the first time. We both had chicken fajitas which were excellent. The prices on the menu did appear expensive at first but we were pleasantly surprised to find that there was a special meal deal on Mondays. We will definitely make a return visit.

Distinctly average pub grub served at inflated prices. During our visit the waitress missed an order and left one of us getting our food 10 minutes after everyone else had eaten. Also the fish dish was full of bones even though the manager assured us the chef had checked the fish himself. Somehow I don't think this was true, there... More

A nice typical pub in Houston, with a garden to take advantage of the sun (it was there !). Inside a little dark. Good local beers, classical pub food.

Even at 5p short of 9 quid.....my chicken & leek pie was a tad watery with fries straight out of the... More
