Our daughter and future son in law will hopefully move to Brixworth in July so I wanted to start checking out the local facilities. I said we'd just go for a drink but we walked into the Coach & Horses restaurant side. They'd had a cancellation and we suddenly found ourselves at a reserved table straight away. Great Wainwright beer,... More

The fixed menu was "ordinary" pub food, but the specials board had some very good choices. Good wine selection too

The real ales were very good. Appearred to be over staffed however seemed to be a very popular place to eat.. so... More

Our kitchen is being refurbished so we decided to take in a local eatery. It's a lovely old pub with a real local feel. The food was freshly cooked though my husband had expected vegetables with his pie and just got peas and a rather inappropriate salad. My jumbo cod was exactly that.

Cannot speak more highly of this place and how great Les and Anthea's hospitality is. I've stayed here a few times now with friends and it's never let us down. Would definitely recommend to anyone. From a well laid out bedroom with all the necessities provided. To a fantastic cooked breakfast custom made ready for you by Anthea or Les... More

When entering i found it really awkward as it seemed every member of staff was just hanging around staring me and my family down but we got taken to a really pleasant booth. I have to say that the way the specials menu is presented was annoying and inconvenient as it was on a board right behind another table with... More

Positives. We were welcomed by two young lads behind the bar on arrival. A credit to the pub. They were very polite and attentive. The open fire looked inviting. Negatives. We felt a chilly breeze on our legs and back during the meal as the main door didn't seem to stay closed. Even though we were sat right next to... More

My family were visiting so we went for a Sunday evening meal. We were seated by a roaring fire in the bay window. We eat here relatively regularly, but I tried the "Salt Beef" from the specials board for the first time. I still think the blade of beef is the best thing on the menu but this is not... More
