    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.

    The service was really slow but the restaurant didn't appear to be full. when we asked to move tables as we were sitting in the kids zone, we never had any children, again we were told no, as they were fully booked. One walk around the pub we saw lots of vacant table. Once the food arrived it was Delicious could not be faulted
