Lovely lunch today with mum and dad, we had fish and chips, mixed grill, chocolate brownie and sticky toffee pudding, with cappuccinos. Food was good, hot (which is always a bug of mine) and well priced. Very quiet lunchtime but nice lunch out with very friendly staff. Thank you x

Visited for Sunday lunch, not eaten here before but have heard positive feedback lately - didn't disappoint. Grabbed a sharing plate of olives and pitta/houmous while we waited for lunch, great portion and actually the food arrived far quicker than expected! Both of us had the lamb shank for lunch, really well cooked and huge portion. Came with roasties, yorkie... More

Just been to enjoy Sunday Lunch just wonderful the selection and quality of our Sunday roasts was perfect. The lamb, beef and the pork were generous in their portion sizes and cooked very well. Friendly staff and good food what more can you ask for on a damp spring Sunday. I know that the new owner has had to contend... More

I've visited the Coach and Horses at Croxley a few times and always been greeted by friendly faces and served good food. I'm not a prolific Facebook or twitter poster, in fact for me to be moved to post is an achievement in itself. Anyway, I ordered a Burger with cheese and bacon - it arrived like a dish served...

Limited menu on a Sunday lunchtime which wasn't good so I had to make a submission. The steak I had was as tough as an old boot (hardly medium rare like I ordered) and everyone else's meal was just as bad. They deducted meals from the bill but the quality was so atrocious we shouldn't have had to pay anything.... More

I visited the Coach & Horses with a friend for lunch. It was years since I had been there, having been seduced by the local 'chain' restaurants, like the Carter & Miller, Vintage Inns etc, but I am glad that we gave it a go. Our welcome was warm and we were soon settled in a very atmospheric dining area... More

I took my friend to this pub last night for an evening meal. I am local to Croxley and have been to the pub plenty of times for food and drinks. However I was extremely disappointed last night! On our arrival there was no one to seat us in the restaurant, or even any bar staff behind the bar to... More

Dear Katie, I am really sorry to hear of your disappointment with regards to your visit to my pub last Sunday. I can only apologise about the food situation on Sunday. Due to our increasing popularity, we have recently reduced the menu on Sundays to help improve the efficiency of service, and to also include roast dinners. On Sunday, we... More

Early lunch with a friend. Warm greeting from owner and offer to bring my drink over to table. Menus given and adequate time to read and decide. Friendly young waiter who was polite and very efficient. Food was excellent, served in timely manner and with care. Excellent food and drinks and first rate service. What more can one ask for!

We had never been here before but visiting my father who lives not far, he recommended the restaurant. My sister has been a vegan since last year and finds it difficult to find things to eat when out. Well, the chef came out and spoke to my sister, explaining what she could do for her. Yes it was a plate... More

Description
The Coach and Horses on The Green has always been associated with travel and has been providing the families of Croxley Green with journeys since 1744. Whether enjoying lunch on the decking or a beer on the patio, dinner in the restaurant or a quiet pint in front of the fire, The Coach has something for everyone. The larger of the two pubs on the famous Green, it has been lovingly restored to former glories and enjoys an enormous outdoor seating play area for families where you can bask in the warmth of the friendly service. The food served is simple, tasty, hearty and nostalgic with an emphasis on sharing and there is a wonderful range of cask ales, continental beers and a fabulous wine list too.
