The restaurant area smelt terrible, the toilets were smelly and freezing cold. The food was average and although there was a child's menu they had to eat with giant sized cutlery and when I asked for something my child could use I was given a teaspoon. Not once did staff approach is to ask if we were ok and the... More

The runner is quiet close to where I live so iv been their a number of times for food and I can genuinely say that I have never had a great experience here. It's labelled as a budget option but I'm afraid even as a budget option it's expensive for what you get. Also being a budget option does not... More

I came with family to the hungry horse for a meal. I was served by Eve. She was incredibly polite and welcoming. Best service I have had in a while! Definitely coming here again!

If you are out for a lunch or coffee this place is okay but nothing special . It cannot help its location but the coffee is good and hot. The place is accessible if you are disabled and have good disabled toilets.

It's cheap food, what more can you say it's fine for families. It does get really busy though so choose your time to visit wisely as you may wait a while

The Running Horse is a no frills, standard fayre, pub grub place with very reasonable prices. The burgers were hot and edible, nothing amazing but they did exactly what it said on the tin. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here but if passing, I wouldn't say no either.

absolutely disgusting. stay well clear. food was cold, took an hour for starters, mains had clearly been sat around and heated up - veg was shrivelled up, source was dry. wrong deserts turns up. then the staff were rude, and accused all THEIR mistakes of being OUR fault. it was a total joke and i will never spend another penny...

Excellent service from behind the bar and the waitress who served the food. A tasty meal, reasonable price and large portions. Well worth a visit.

Thank John B
