The racehorse is always fantastic. We always pre-book a table and pre-order food. The service is always fantastic and the food came out as we arrived. Great food and good pricing.
really nice; good sized portions, lovely staff and tasty! Relatively quick service for lunchtime.
First class service from mgr, girls need a bit more work...trying to clear table whilst still eating
Dispite the pub was very busy the food came up very quickly. Good food. Lots of birthdays, hen night so coukd be hard to hear but face to a good atmosphere.
So as you know we visit most every week for the quiz. This week things didn't go so well with our food order. Two of us ordered the quiz pizza deal - one marguerita with extra mushrooms (£1 extra) and one carne. My daughter joined us this week and decided to have the salt and pepper squid starter with a side of chips. The pizzas arrived and the side of chips. The carne pizza not up to usual standard with just a bit of ham thrown on the top but cooked and edible. The marguerita with extra mushrooms had 6 pieces of button mushroom (for £1 extra!) so it got sent back. The pizza came back again, unfortunately it went back again, the base was not cooked. Oh and the squid had still not arrived so we reminded them that we were waiting for it. By the time that the pizza with mushrooms and the squid arrived I had finished my meal! The squid was a generous portion and very hot so had clearly just been cooked, the pizza had lots more mushrooms and was cooked through. Not the best week from order to actually eating but what we eventually ate was hot and tasty. Hopefully the next time we visit all will be back to the standard that we usually experience at The Racehorse .
A lovely evening was had at The Racehorse last Saturday. The place was very busy which is always a good sign in my books. As a table of 10 we had a range of different meals, but 2 that stood out were the Boozy Lamb and the Old Spot sausages, they were delicious! The food was delivered in good time, considering how busy it was and the atmosphere was great with several large tables and a birthday table too! The puddings were also delicious, portions being very generous indeed. The only slight niggle from a couple of people was that the size of the pies were a bit small, compared with other main meals. But all in all a great night, thank you all.
This week my friend had a burger ... all good, hot and tasty. I decided to have a change from the quiz pizza deal and chose the superfoods salad with chicken, bacon and mango with a side order of skin on fries. The fries were good, crispy and hot. The salad was tasty but incomplete .... no quinoa or sugar snap peas and no mango!! Thoroughly enjoyed the meal but when I mentioned the omissions to the lady who appeared to be managing on Thursday evening she said she didn't know what the kitchen had in stock! Surely if it's on the menu it should be in stock and if you've run out that should be notified to the customer at the point of sale (the till) so that there is an opportunity to revisit the menu. Always a good meal, lovely food and good service but sometimes the standard slips.
We visited The Racehorse for my Dad's Birthday as both my parents have visited twice before and enjoyed it. Safe to say I doubt we will be returning after the experience we just had! We arrived for our meal on time and was shown to our table straight away from there on nothing was on time...it took 10 minutes before a waitress came to take our order for drinks and then when we finally ordered it took nearly 50 minutes for my brother's starter to arrive when we were told it had been sat on the wrong table! Turns out it wasn't very tasty anyway so he wished he hadn't bothered ordering it! Then the mains came out 1 hour after ordering and they weren't hot plus it took another 5 minutes for the vegetables to go with our roast dinners! All of our roasts were disappointing to say they least my chicken was so small I thought it was a starter and my Dad's was tasteless! We were never asked during our meal how the food was once which was also poor. We complained to the waitress and she said she would see what she could do and £10 was taken off the bill by the manager who then apologised for our experience and asked what he could do to help he offered a free meal on the house next time we visit but nothing in writing so we would have to chance our bets that he would be there if we came back and also him remembering promising this to us. Doubt we will bother as it ruined what was supposed to be a nice family Birthday meal and the wait times and poor quality of food and service were abismal!
Sunday lunch at the Racehorse was fabulous thank you, a little pricey but very tasty and good portions. The staff were all very friendly and happy and there was a good atmosphere with good volume background music. Highly recommend, would definitely eat there again I haven’t been there since the summer and it’s the first time I’ve eaten there since their refurb and it’s a vast improvement. Shame most of the racing memorabilia has gone though and what happened to the old brown horse from outside? 🙁
We went recently for a Sunday roast and a charity quiz. The Sunday roast was very good as usual with plenty of food and nice selection of vegetables. There is always a pig in blanket plus Yorkshire pudding on the plate, which is must for our family’s roasts. The quiz was interactive using a tablet or smart phone. We had not taken part in this type of quiz before. We enjoyed it and look forward to doing another one in the future.
