Hudson’s Ale House is a historic pub that first opened in 1840 under the name of ‘Hudson’s Noted Ales & Stouts’. Back then the pub was listed as a Brew House, which it remained as until the early 1900’s. In the 2000’s the pub changed hands and became ‘The Tally Ho’, its sign appropriately depicting a hunting scene. The original brew house name could still be seen however, emblazoned across the front of the building. At this time a car park was added at the rear of the pub, which was also often used for inter-pub Boule tournaments. In 2015 the pub underwent an exciting refurbishment. Hudson’s Ale House now boasts a more modern, up-to-date look. Comfortable booth seating has been added with interesting features such as a bespoke map wall of the local area and a distinctive deep blue bar. Quirky, colourful elements contrast against raw, urban design features creating a contemporary feel, while original fireplaces remain a cosy reminder of the pub’s rich history.

We were very grateful for the air conditioning on a hot day, but the customer service could have been much better. One member of staff spoke very poor English, which made communicating orders to her very difficult. She also 'forgot' an order for a drink, despite us standing right in front of her. The other member of staff was clearly in a foul mood - didn't smile at all, moaned about the possibility of having to open multiple tabs for our party (a pre-booked birthday gathering of 8 people), kept disappearing for long stretches leaving the other member of staff to try to deal with everyone in spite of her poor communication skills, and even slammed a door in her mood! Not the nicest of atmosphere to celebrate someone's birthday. The food was mostly good - the curries in particular seemed to to go down well - but it would have been nice to see some more veggie/vegan options, and anything gluten free at all. Overall, the pub was a fairly pleasant environment and provided tasty and well-presented food, but the experience was, unfortunately, let down by the staff working that night.

A  lovely family PUB!

VISITED this lovely pub on the Wednesday lunch for the first time with friends. Welcomed by the staff and some of the locals, a warm friendly pub with good beers, esp good for those who like real ales.
We decided to have a bit to eat, myself having the cheese burger, and my friends having the peri peri chicken and Lasagnia. The burger was delicious, very succulent, a pleasure to eat, and my friends said the same of theirs.
Overall a lovely pub whom I would be glad to visit again!
