We went back here following my previous bad experience in October 2016 as there is apparently a new manager, however nothing has improved, still numerous items not on the menu leaving very little choice particularly with starters and long waits for service. The main courses were all luke warm, the fish and chips was small and the sweet potato with... More

Enjoyed fish & chips with lovely crispy batter plus possibly the best mushy peas I've ever tasted and yummy tartar sauce too. Nice glass of red. Friendly, helpful staff and a great atmosphere. Couldn't have asked for more and will be back to explore more of the menu.

Been here twice. The first time was about 3 years ago. I was disappointed the first time, as much of the menu was unavailable and even worse it seemed that customers were an inconvenience whilst they chatted at the bar. The pub has recently come under new management, and what a difference. The staff are focused on the customers, giving... More

Must confess this wasn't our first choice, it was a Sunday and the pub we always use was full and couldn't fit us in, 4 Adults, 2 Children, so went to the nearest pub, Coach & Horses and had a truly wonderful meal - feel disloyal about leaving our old faithful haunt but the food was truly exceptional here, the...

I visited with friends tonight (have read posts / reviews since the establishment was taken over) and have to congratulate the new owner / landlady. It is difficult to establish a "new" pub in an area with so much good competition. The food was delicious, the staff attentive and service good. The menu gives many choices. My guests had the...

Family meal, eight adults and two very young children, catered for extremely well. Excellent food, drink and service. Mixed grill very good indeed. Very pleased to see dogs in the bar!

With a cold heavy frost you would expect the fire to be lit. After a long wait for deserts we were quite chilly!!!! Main courses were good, puddings disappointing (possible overuse of a microwave???) and the wait between courses far too long. This could have been so much better that it was a shame especially as our group is new... More

Hi there Angela, Many thanks for your feedback. I took over the Coach on The Green on 13th December, and one of the first changes I did was to clear out all of the candles from the magnificent fireplaces in the pub, hire a chimney sweep, and get the fireplaces ready to light! Unfortunately, we were all new to lighting... More

Can not thank the manager Luke enough for looking after us and all the staff. It was a family birthday celebration for 14 of us. Food was delicious and even got a free bottle of bubbly for my mum, who enjoyed being spoilt!! Will be back soon...

I have been going here on some Mondays and Tuesdays recently as my Son has County Cricket at the local school.

Apparently the lease has now been sold - but the manager remaining. This is good news. For some years it has had less attention that the other pubs in the group - but we will be watching with interest. Beer well kept and staff good.

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.
