Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Coach & Horses is a nice clean warm restaurant, staff friendly. Myself and my husband decided to treat ourselves to a nice lunch/dinner. We ordered a rump steak, with sauce, & a pan fried chicken with Stilton & bacon sauce. Both meals were well presented...& lovely and hot. The meals were delicious, steak cooked to perfection, I asked for it med-rare. The only problem we had with this visit is that I paid the bill without checking it properly, there should have been 20% taken off the steak meal ( it’s a Tuesday offer) & it was not taken off. I will check my bill more carefully in future. Overall a good experience.More

Visited here the Friday before Christmas with a big group of family and friends for a Christmas drink. Everything was fine until 7pm when we asked to leave because we had children in our group. As I looked around the pub every other group that...had children with them were leaving. Apparently it’s the landlords policy to not allow children in after 7pm. In all he must have evicted 40 plus people. The place is advertised as a family friendly pub with a play area inside and out and sweet machines for kids. It is anything but! In fact the landlord genuinely despises children! We had family and friends travelled from Nottingham to meet for Christmas drinks, the children in our group were sat well behaved playing on their iPads in a back room being no trouble to anyone, as were all the other children in there. Despite this the landlord was rude and obnoxious when I questioned him about is having to leave.More

We have been going to the Coach and Horses at Markfield Thursday early evening for the last 3 weeks. The foods been great all 3 times, but last nights ribeye steak was superb one of the best ive ever had. The service is friendly and...very professional with a great sense of welcoming. We rang on the off chance Thursday evening for a table due to running late and was able to reserve a table. Great range of beers, wines and other assorted drinks. we will be back, Thank you for the great food and service.More

This place has really gone downhill fast since Covid. Very average quality food, poorly trained staff, and a ridiculously overpriced wine list for bargain basement supermarket wines.

Basic pub food at restaurant prices. If you want to call yourself a restaurant then you should at least have a wine list. I like to know how much i am paying for a bottle of wine before I order. Also if you are going...to have special deals on certain nights then perhaps you should make sure that your system deals with this. I was charged full price for something that was on offer. Very disappointing night out and I won't be back.More

We visited The Coach today for my mother in law’s birthday treat. What a lovely welcoming atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. My father in law has considerable mobility issues . We were able to park close to the entrance in the...disabled area, access was easy and the waitress came out to assist us. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and has a lovely ambient atmosphere. Staff were polite, professional and very friendly. Service was superb, timely and competent. Our waitress was amazing as were bar staff and the chef. Food was brilliant, fresh , well cooked, beautifully presented and hot. Portions are very generous. Lots of variety on offer and special requests were no problem at all. We were checked on by staff and drinks ,when ordered were served promptly at the table. My mother in law was treated to a rendition of happy birthday by staff and even presented with a candle in her desert. A wonderful afternoon out. We will definitely be visiting again.More

Booked for romantic occasion, couples night, as parents - not that often! Sat in the large room with kitchen, with two other couples in total. No atmosphere, as no music was playing, we were all whispering as we could hear each other’s words. Planned on...having the special 3 courses for £30. Very small prawns looked like they had been through a mincer, had lost original shape, no sauce, except water in prawns. Unable to eat due to rough texture and chewy, fed back to waitress who apologised. Mixed grill, was just that - fried meat. No flavour. Dry. Lamb shank had a gravy, but small meat portion. Ditched pudding idea as food disappointment, no atmosphere and all couples had left! So two drinks, two starters, two mains -£70 spent in 80 mins; they charged for the prawns despite feeding back. Should have stayed at home. Not enjoyable. It was like, the place wasn’t supposed to be open, but the lights were on, if you know what I mean. Won’t be returning again!More
