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. Food is quite nice (the steak and ale pie was especially good) There has been a few stock issues on Mondays with both beer and food being in short supply. The staff are very pleasant. I understand it is... More

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.

Will try to avoid in future. Second poor experience in a row. Slow service with meals coming out in 10-15 minute intervals. Asked whether the peas with the scampi were supposed to be icy cold and got an 'I dunno, I'll ask in the kitchen' response. Said peas then took 15 minutes to arrive, by that time the scampi and...

It was rubbish! They only had one chef and two barmaids so everything was slow. They should have told us from the start but instead we waited over an hour for our food. When it finally came it was cold and burnt. There were no managers to sort it out. People were walking out before their food turned up. Not... More

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.
