I am a fairly regular customer to the hungry horse, have been for many different occasions. I visited yesterday (1/08/14) to have a catch up with some friends I haven't seen in a while. It was pretty busy as usual. IT did take a while to get served at the bar when we first ordered some drinks but I put this down to customers not too sure on what they want and how much they should be ordering for everyone else at there table. There was few staff on the bar but plenty of staff on the floor, rushing around to clear tables and constantly bring food out.
We ordered starters and mains when we went back to the bar and was served pretty quickly, service was pretty good and was advised waiting times for food considering it was very busy it wasn't long. They came out before the advised time and was very hot and very nice. We were asked by two members of staff if everything was ok and if we needed any extra sauce etc.
Mains were brought out soon after and all food was great I had the 5oz steak with chips peas onion rings tomato and mushroom, all was cooked perfectly and steak just how I had asked for it. My friends food was also very nice, one had the half chicken with rice topped in bbq sauce and the other had the Bombay banquet(chicken tikka) portion sizes were good also. Tables were cleared quickly after and we wasn't rushed to leave even though they were very busy this was good as we were chatting and catching up. Only had one pudding which was yummy as always had the warm chocolate brownie with ice cream topped with marsh mellows malteasers and chocolate/toffee sauce.This is a must try!!!
I don't know why this place gets some bad reviews as the staff are always polite, informative and very busy but always give it there all. For the price you pay and the portions you get you cant go wrong with the hungry horse, We will be returning.
