After a morning stroll on Hay tor we decided to go for a drive and ended up at The Horse in Moretonhampstead. A warm welcome on entering and even though we had not booked, a table for four was quickly found despite the establishment being busy. I tried one of the real ales and a very nicely kept pint it...

Not the cosiest of settings as we were sat in a sort of corridor. Service although friendly was very slow. Took over 1/2 hour to get a basic lunch served. Food portions were small for the price and my mozzarella and tomato salad with pesto was totally tasteless and tiny.

Lots of choices on the menu here; all very fresh and expertly prepared. Great place for a nice ale or lovely glass of wine. The pizza has a crisp crust and tasty sauce lots of topping choices, thought the classic Margarita pizza was perfect for me. Watch out though - lots of garlic! While the Italian themed choices are excellent... More

This review is covering three meals: two dinners and one lunch. All have been superb! The evening pizzas are beautifully cooked, with plenty of ingredients and great combinations. My mussels the other night were some of the best that I've ever had with some a rich, creamy sauce that had an almost overwhelming depth of flavour whilst not being overwhelming.... More

We stopped here as a threesome on our way westwards. The atmosphere here is pleasant, with a real fire and sofas as well as tables. The menu is very imaginative and we had three delicious choices of US deli inspired warm sandwiches. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pub has been extensively revamped, but obviously some time ago. There... More

Enjoyed the pizza here (and the beer too!). The Horse seems to be very popular so make sure you reserve a table.

Been here many times and the food is always good. I'd like it to do a better range of beer but that would be quibbling. I'd also like proper plates rather than slates but so good is the food, it isn't that important.

We were staying locally overnight and were recomended to come here due to the speciality - Pizzas. Thankfully they just managed to fit us in, as we hadnt booked. The focaccia starter was a real treat, chosen as I'd seen a lovely large loaf as we went past the kitchen area on the way to the table. We had a... More
