    Staff were great but had to complain. Nearly an hour between starter and main, then the food was average at best, not worth waiting for. They gave us 20% off which was a good response.

    I have visited the Coaching halt twice before this visit and had a good experience , but when we visited on October 28th it was not so good . There were 4of us on this visit and we chose to eat from the special £6 meal plus £2 for a starter . We ordered our food and drinks . The first problem was that they brought the wrong soup to one guest . It was changed , but the soup was not nice , the guest thought it was a packet soup , as it was lumpy, and they were given an ice cream sundae spoon to eat it with !The prawn cocktails that two of us had were passable , not especially good . When the main meals came the person who had gammon was given an ordinary knife to cut the gammon steak with and the others had to ask for cutlery ! When we got the bill , we were charged the full price for the meals as from the menu . We queried , and it was altered , but they then charged us as for 5 people , so we queried again before it was put right , finally ! I am afraid that the food and service was very average and we probably will not return or recommend it .

    Service very slow. I booked online for 5pm 2/10 my party of three arrived 10mins early, so didn't expect to have a table before the time I had booked, but did expect to get a drink while waiting for our table to be cleared. With only one member of staff at the bar I waited the 10 minutes, by then our table was ready, so thought ok waitress will take our drinks order whilst looking at the menu. We waited another 10 minutes to get drinks, another 10mins for our food order, and the food arrived 50mins after being seated. We thought we would try the Sunday roast. My husband asked for beef (a popular meat for a Sunday roast) so popular it seems it was unavailable at 5pm! The waitress didn't apologise, just said didn't have the beef. After the waitress cleared the table after our meal, we waited several minutes again before being asked whether we wanted dessert, coffee etc. When declined and asked for bill, again another long wait. Very disappointed. We have been going to the Coaching Halt on regular basis since it first opened, with excellent food and service, but the last 12months the service has been very poor. Up until now I have just said it must have been an off day, but I'm afraid there has been to many 'off days'. I will not be going back to Coaching Halt

    We have been here a few times. Food is good, service is good. Its a nice clean pub. The atmosphere is pretty relaxing even when its busy. My favourite meal is the rotisserie chicken. My son is vegan so its difficult to eat out but he had the edaname bean burger which he really enjoyed. We will certainly return.

    The roast dinner was average, the Yorkshire puddings were lovely but unfortunately the roast potatoes and vegetables tasted like they had been cooked from frozen. Puddings were lovely. Unfortunately our visit was affected by "travellers" children swearing at our 2 daughters and a friend's daughter. But a staff member kindly spoke to them as he came over and asked if everything was OK and we explained what had occurred and he said he would speak to them. We thought the staff were great, very attentive but our visit was blighted by this unfortunate incident. We thought the facilities/play areas for children were very good.
