Our visit was unfortunately a mixed bag weather wise but we wrapped up and received a warm welcome by the landlord whom showed us to a table under a large umbrella in a lovely garden area. He even went to the trouble to position our table next to heater to take the chill off. The landlord was a well presented gentleman and obviously proud of his pub and for very good reason as it appears The Horse & Cart Inn was purchased and saved by the local community for him to run. It looks like a lot of work has gone to the refurbishment. He gave us a run down of the menu which was a list of traditional pub dishes with many mouth watering options and it was apparent everything was made fresh to order using local produce. I went for the soup only to warm me up and it was tomato , ok sounds dull but it certainly wasn’t to taste, freshly made tomato soup and absolutely splendid. My wife had the mushroom bruschetta which she adored and was very well presented. For mains I had the pub burger which was a lamb burger freshly made patty with home made cut chips and my wife had the fish and chips which she said was the best she has ever had. This really is a fantastic hidden gem of a pub, could not fault it, great service, fantastic fresh food at reasonable prices. Although not local to us sadly, we will no doubt be back regularly here. Well done to the landlord and staff of The Horse & Cart Inn, spot on !

Colleague and I stayed in Dec 2020 (area in Tier 2) for 3 nights. Rooms 1 and 3 very comfortable. Room 1 has self-catering facility (but ate Inn Food). Room 3 amazing bathroom with enormous bath and separate very good shower. Good choice of food, which was presented well and tasted great. Only slight niggle was that breakfast is from 8.30 and we needed to be away by 7.45am but the Landlord arranged cover for us to have cereals, toast and coffee at 7.15am (totally adequate) so Thank-you. Covid situation was being respected and so we felt safe. Value for money the Horse & Cart was excellent. Certainly it will be our first choice when in the area again.

My wife and I went in for a lunch there. Parking was easy and the welcome was very good. They had just had problems with the electrics (power cut) so the menu was slightly shortened. We chose the Roast Lamb and Pork. Both were delicious and had a nice glass of cider to go with it. Would definitely go there again.

My family has a little reunion break away to celebrate my Mums birthday, we stayed at a hotel just down the road from here & as my brother had his dog with him we wanted to find a dog friendly place for dinner, this was walking distance so ideal & dog friendly. The staff couldn’t have looked after us better, they accommodated they fact that my husband was joining us later, looked after my mums coeliac diet extremely well, in fact when they offered for my mum to have grilled fish 2 of us asked for the same & it was delicious. We had such a good evening we decided to book for breakfast the following morning, again this was so good we booked for breakfast again the next morning! Tao (I hope that’s the correct spelling) was such an amazing host (and owner) he really cares about his customers, his staff were also fantastic. A great menu, every meal was exceptional & clear plates all round. Location, setting etc perfect, the log fires just make it such a stunning setting too. We had such a great time my hubby & I have booked to come back to stay 2 nights in the rooms & of course to eat here at the start of October & we can’t wait! Thank you for helping to make our family break a memorable one.

Excellent all round pub/B&B/restaurant. Very reasonable rate and did not expect it to be as lovely as it is. Traditional old pub modernised tastefully and traditionally Room not big but comfortable, clean, great products and good facilities. Staff could not be friendlier. Food delicious (dinner and breakfast) and made a special effort for food intolerance and vegan diet. Great choice of beer and wine. Would recommend to anyone
