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.

Went with the family. There was 9 of us. 8 adults and 1 child. We all really enjoyed our food was very nice. We had starters, main and dessert on the Sunday lunch menu and looking forward to going back and trying other meals very good price. Would highly recommend this pub

It seems that some people who have only ever posted 1 review have not been entirely truthful, but this is the world we now live in. The Huntsman & Horn is very welcoming pub, all the staff are extremely helpful, and more importantly the Covid safety is in place. The food is well prepared and always excellent quality, the beers are well kept, and there is plenty of outside seating to allow social distancing.

I was staying in the local area for a few days and found this place on google, I phoned ahead just to check they were doing food and that my dog would be allowed to come in. I arrived and there was a table set up for me with a doggy water bowl and biscuits all ready. Jacqueline and Dylan were extremely attentive and I enjoyed their friendly and warm service. They made me and Alf (my dog!) feel very welcomed. the food was delicious and the service was just brilliant. I’d recommend this place to anyone in the area! Thank you Jacqueline and Dylan for making my evening meal so lovely

Absolutely disgusted at the service I have received this week when I attended a wake. The staff were neither professional nor knew what they were doing, on numerous occasions getting orders wrong, the hygiene was poor, dust and dirt through out the pub, sticky tables and overal poor service. The buffet was shocking a few tray of sandwiches some sausage rolls and scotch eggs costing no more than £20 yet cost the customer hundreds of pounds. Diabolical. Used to be a lovely family run pub. Didn’t feel welcome at all and will not be rushing back

Ordered 3 roast dinners which were unfortunately served cold, I telephoned the pub later rather than causing a scene or embarrassing the staff. The lady on the telephone was apologetic and said she would ask a member of staff to call me. I never received a call so I telephoned the pub back after a couple of weeks. The landlady I presume said thanks for the feedback and that was that! I was a little gobsmacked to say the least. Village pubs are built on reputation and friendlessness, very disappointed!

Unfortunately we had an awful Experience with the landlady who is not welcoming towards children at all. We had a family lunch and all children were really well behaved, tables even complimented us. The owners were very aggressive when talking to the kids and not welcoming at all. We paid our £480 bill then she decided to come over and tell us that they had complaints, these so called complaints she couldn’t say what they were and never told any of the adults at the time they were made so it could be rectified. She did this in front of the children also which I think is awful. She then proceeded to accuse one of the adults of something awful and said she could check the cameras. We said please do as this is an awful accusation and most importantly untrue. This was all said in front of our children and not once handles correctly. Made to feel very unwelcome after spending a lot of money. This also isn’t the first time we’ve been made to feel unwelcome with the kids but it’s local so we have continued to support

Hi Maxine Thanks for your review of your experience, we unfortunately have different recollections of the day. We would not recommend our venue for children for a 7 hour visit as yours was, and we do ask that all children are supervised at all times by an adult which was asked of your groups adults on the day. We wish you all the best and hope you have found a venue more suited to all of your families likings. - Lindsay

Went for lunch today with two friends. Service was good, waitress gave advice on menu when asked. We wanted a traditional Sunday roast. Pleased that we had a choice of full size or smaller portions. We all chose the smaller portions, which were still generous and satisfied our appetites. Delicious. Desserts were yummy. We also had lager, wine and a soft drink. Then coffee (which came with choc mints) to round off the meal. The dining room was busy but the staff were helpful and we didn’t have to wait too long to be served. The cost of our meal was extremely competitive considering what we had. I would highly recommend the Huntsman and Horn. Joanna

The food we ordered was inedible,really greasy and hardly touched it and if we had of been offered anything else we would of had to of said no as it seems that it's all deep fat fried and I don't think they have ever heard of a salad. The whole place is very run down and dated and the toilets are enough to put you off and if you're lucky enough to experience meeting the landlady that's un savoury too. Definitely wouldn't recommend or go back

Service was perfect in these circumstances we are in, even though the weather was on our side sitting outside, food was delicious worth the money, staff were friendly and helpful. Extremely well run with sanitising stations, track and trace etc. Well done to you all 👍

We had an absolute amazing roast dinner, plenty of food and piping hot. One of us is a coeliac, and the chef understood exactly what was needed. Jackie our waitess was superb 👏 👌 She was friendly, attentive, an absolute credit to this pub.....we will be back.

Delicious hotpots can recommend the Madras and the Vegan meatballs. The beef in the Madras was very tender and the sauce wasn't too hot just right. The Vegan meatballs were tasty and lighter than original beef ones so you didn't feel heavy after. Service was excellent and restaurant comfy and cosy.

We go on a regular (every fortnight) basis for Sunday Lunch and take the dog. He is usually welcomed with a handful of biscuits and a bowl of water. We are welcomed almost like old friends. The food is always -without exception -lovely. It is always hot as is the plate and it mostly stays hot to the end. More to the point all the vegetables are cooked from fresh, never frozen. Another good thing is the fact that they do small portions for small eaters i.e.senior citizens, but the portions are always enough. We do try other places on the alternate Sundays but this is by far the best so am starting to wonder why we dont go there every week.

We’d heard very good things about this restaurant! A warm welcome and we sat down early. A lovely Irish lady served us and she was great. A few menu choices were unavailable so there wasn’t a great deal of choice left. 2 of us chose the beef, it was awful! Very very poor quality! I had to ask for a steak knife to cut it but it was impossible to chew it! I complained and was told it was because it was well done. No offer to make up for the poor quality. Also 2 small slices of meat. The vegetables were average, and the cauliflower cheese had run out. The puddings were very good and freshly cooked. A cheapish lunch but quite poor quality. The waitress and puddings were a saviour.

We hadn’t booked but the delightful land lady was able to accommodate us. This was our first visit to this lovely pub and we were not disappointed. We both ordered the steak and ale pie recommended by the land lady and I have to say it was the best pie we’ve had in a long time and the best pub meal we have ever had. The whole meal was well cooked, the meat in the pie succulent, the gravy defiantly made from meat juices and was amazing. Potatoes perfect as were the veg. The portion was so generous. We are local but it has taken 6 years to make it to this pub. We will be back without a doubt. Thanks for a New Year lunch treat.

Wow fantastic experience. Delightful roast lamb but gorgeous vegetarian and vegan options (which we are looking forward to trying next time) cooked in our view to perfection. Something special not run of the mill, especially cauliflower cheese! Desert scummy salted caramel blonde cheesecake and brownies what a treat. We usually go away for our anniversary but due to circumstances stayed at home to celebrate 35 years, celebration could not have been more special, staff excellent absolutely great service thank you.
