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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stopped off here on the way to Sheffield from Sussex. Food was great, good choice of ‘pub’ grub in a pleasant atmosphere with welcoming staff. Will look out for it again when travelling up.

Stopped here a few times on our way up North! Excellent food and superb service. Just stopped for lunch - outstanding! I had the Philly Steak flat bread which was delicious. Great coffee too!

Lovely place, nice interiors & staff seemed friendly, but we went for the lunch menu in which was not available, so disappointed. We ended up with pizza & sides between us. Pudding plated really well looked delicious, unfortunately the white chocolate & vanilla cheesecake with...blueberry jelly on top, only tasted of vanilla, meringue was nice and also presented well.More

3 stars is purely down to the slow service and the small portions. Sadly for those two issues we won't be returning. The service could have just been a case of a bad day at the office but there's no excuse for small portions being...over pricedMore

Lovely pub. Very helpful when booking as I had questions about our dog coming. Staff are lovely and welcoming. Food was outstanding. I recommend the ‘ham, egg and chips’ starter! Great quality food and large portion size. Well presented and a broad menu on offer....Cannot fault anything about our experience - just wish this was my local.More

It was a very good evening. On reflection it is possible to say that the staff at The Horse were faultless, from the owner, to the crew they were all very pleasant, engaged, intelligent, polite, friendly and all contributed to a really nice evening. The...food and drink was superb. There is a lot of competition in a 10 mile radius of this pub, touching on Charnwood villages. The Horse is amongst the best. When I say "faultless", I can think of no aspect of the evening that was not "spot on".More

Lovely accommodation in a good location with plenty of parking. On the main Ashby road, but rooms set back aways so no noise from the road or the pub. The breakfast choices were good and ours was yummy (full english).

We had an absolutely delicious breakfast at the Horse on Saturday. The staff are so professional and friendly, the food was fresh and we all had a different brunch that was different but equally as good. They even offered to do a mini version of...the porridge for my baby. Would absolutely visit again.More

Oh what a charming place with amazing food, all locally sourced. I went with my family the children were well catered for. Staff polite and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. I suggest making a reservation as the restaurant gets extremely busy. Even at 5pm...on a Saturday evening with a reserved table in a packed restaurant our meals arrived quickly. The food was out of this world, top quality my steak cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Staff clean smart polite and on hand to help at all times. Decor has an oldy worldy theme, but somehow remains modern and appealing. My visit was super. Thank you so muchMore
