    Staff were welcoming and friendly. There was quite a wait for our food, considering it was not that busy.

    Sunday roast was poor. Roasts weren’t roasted enough, poor watery gravy and beef wasn’t pink. Quite cold food as well… my wife had a really nice chicken pie that I wish I ordered

    We booked our table only a couple of hours before we were going to eat. On arrival we were given a choice of sitting inside or outside in the garden. At my choice we sat indoors, close to the open patio doors, so we could benefit from the breeze coming through. The staff were all polite, welcoming and attentive. There was one waiter there who took a shine to my 9 year old grandson and made a little more fuss over him, Which of course he lapped up. The starters were quick in coming out and when we asked for extra bread for the cheese, they brought some out, nothing seemed to be a problem here. The 3 adults all ordered the Sunday roast (well, it is Sunday after all), there was plenty on the plate and we all asked for extra gravy. Now this is only my personal feelings, the potatoes were over cooked, I like my beef medium rare, not well done and our Yorkshires were way too crispy. The desserts, the plates were all cleaned, none of us left anything. All in all, would we go back? Yes definitely, I just won't be ordering a Sunday roast again.

    The team were very low on numbers and the manager was visibly stressed, the staff were not unpleasant but lacked good customer service skills and the experience was awkward. There were huge amounts of unavailable dishes from the menu, which were not explained until we were placing the orders (disappointment all round). Such a shame as it is such a nice looking pub and the food was so good.

    Too many dishes contained cheese, which does not encourage me to make another booking. I accept that this is personal to me and may not discourage others.

    It was extremely relaxed and the young lady who served us was very pleasant, kind & professional, we have been many times before. The food was Ok but not the best we’ve experienced at the Shy Horse.

    I have used this restaurant many many times and this is the first time I have been very disappointed. The service was very slow and as we were sitting near the kitchen it appeared that there were more takeaways being taken out and the customers in the restaurant not being served. The restaurant wasn’t even really busy. The food was good once we received it but it really has put me off going again

    Like the venue and the general feel of it. On a personal level I do not want peppers with my Sunday lunch! Nice lunch is a good environment and looked after well.

    The Sunday lunch was very good. Lamb was tender and tasty. Quick and attentive service. Very impressed and will definitely go back.

    Lovely food, nice ambience but wanted window seat only to be told rather brusquely that that part of the restaurant was not open. Also when we arrived and stood by the "Wait here to be seated" sign we were kept waiting quite an uncomfortably long time while the staff busied themselves behind the bar; we observed that this also happened to several other subsequent arrivals. A good reputation is hard won and easily lost.

    The service was a bit slow but they did have a lot of people in there. The food was disappointing for me as the gammon was so salty it was not really eatable. I have said this before about the gammon but you are still apparently using the same supplier, perhaps you ought to look elsewhere for your gammon steaks.

    Very happy that we found this pub. Looking for a dog friendly pub and this popped up. Lovely old coaching inn tastefully decorated. The staff were great, chatty, and fun. The food was lovely and everything was spot on. Had a good chat with the manager and the chef after we had eaten too who were great.. Couldnt fault it and as it was my folks 64th wedding anniversary we were delighted with everyone and everything. Thanks to you all for making it a great day.
