We enjoyed this pub so much that we ate there three days out of four while staying close by. The welcome was friendly and the food was excellent each time. Good pub grub and good prices! Highly recommend it.

We recently organised lunch at The Flying Horse for a group of eighteen people and can say that, in spite of people ordering different dishes on arrival, all went well without a hitch. The food was good and the service very friendly. Thank you for a great lunch in a cosy bar.
