My British cousins live in Bishops Stortford and they took us to the Coach and Horses Pub for two (2) dinners. We had a Sunday roast and a weeknight meal. The service on both occasions was outstanding. Our first server was Jazz (?). She was polite, attentive and very efficient. Our second server was a young man from Australia who... More

Had a family meal with two young children on a Sunday night. The service was very good friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere and ambiance. Good choice of meals including Sunday lunch and children's meals. We shared the four starters which were varied and value for money the children shared the calamari again they enjoyed. Main meals all looked well presented... More

Hello Derek, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry the roast potatoes were dry and hard, our roast potatoes are cooked fresh throughout the day, so I don't know if maybe the batch of potatoes we had were not a good quality. Please be assured our roast potatoes are usually delicious - they get us... More

What a transformation for this Pub its so welcoming the staff extremely helpful. They had a log fire burning the smell made it so cozy. The meal was excellent as were the drinks.We certainly recommend this Pub now. It had its problems in the past as far as we were concerned but my God what a difference.

I dined here on Sunday evening with four family members looking forward to a Sunday roast. We were only given a Sunday roast menu to be waiting 30 minutes to be told they had none. We also waited at least 15 minutes to be asked for our drinks order to only then receive the wrong wine. The food was delicious... More

21 of us came here to celebrate a 90th birthday. Everything was first class. The waiting staff were fantastic - friendly, accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and considering what a big party we were, there was no long wait for food. I really couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Well done to all.

We called into the Coach and Horses pub restaurant and received a friendly welcome. We were attended by Hillary who was a pleasure to be served by. The beef and Rioja pie was amazing. I would certainly recommend this establishment and have no hesitation in returning in the future.

I've eaten here twice and both were not very good, very average food which is a pity as they have spent allot of money on the decor. Great for a beer sitting inside or out and very family friendly
