Very busy pub could not get to the bar as was so busy and noisy. The menu was very minimal with no chicken dishes and fancy monkfish. We had the steak it was very dry and over priced you get no tomatoes and only a few chips. Would we return ? No thanks.
A very well appointed pub restaurant with rooms in a charming village near an exquisite packhorse bridge. The food was very good, well priced - we had the lunch menu - and excellent and appropriately attentive service.
We will try an find a reason for visiting again!
Food was really lovely, I was expecting a more fine dining style restaurant. However it was still very nice. I will be going again
Always a top spot. Never disappointed with food, service nor ambiance.
Wonderful food and excellent service. Service means everything to us, and the staff delivered. A very warm atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed.
Great experience, service and food exemplary.
Lovely breakfast for Mother Day, staff efficient and friendly and food delicious as always.
The service was very casual, the noise level very loud and the food was overly fussy and lacking in vegetables, I would not consider it good vale for money.
Quite expensive for a standard Sunday lunch. Place itself is pleasant enough
Pleasant venue, cheerful staff and a nice menu. Traditional roasts, home made bread and desserts were all really good, vegetarian option rather bland though.
Thanks for very pleasant lunch. The scotch duck egg was outstanding. It was very noisy and I think our table was strangely too large for four as we had to lean forward all the time to hear each other speak... and chairs excruciatingly uncomfortable. I think the retro look had taken over comfort. But great food and attractively served.
I was meeting a friend for lunch who I hadn't seen for a long time. The staff were great as they kept any interruptions to our non-stop conversation to a minimum, but still made sure that we were well looked after. The food was very nice, particularly the treacle tart which was very light in texture but still very treacly!
First visit for many years and it did not disappoint. Limited menu but what we chose was very good. Wine by the glass was excellent and the staff were attentive throughout.
Just fabulous, as always.
Great food, lovely atomosphere, brilliant service.
We’ve been for many a Sunday lunch here. Good atmosphere and lovely waiting staff. Food however is dipping somewhat. Three Sunday lunches and two fish mains plus starters and puddings. Sunday roasts were Lukewarm and toast potatoes were the very worst - wrinkly-hard in the middle and cold. Pre done starters -trout & charcuterie board ok. Puddings pre done - chocolate tarts ok also. Passed on our thoughts on the roasts. Two adults - 3 children£190. Should be better than that.
Disappointing and mediocre meal with a far-too expensive price tag. Would not bother to return.
Went for date night Saturday and had the Valentines set menu! £55 per person and we got ALOT of food, which was all delicious! Friendly, attentive staff and a gorgeous building!
Our meal was a pleasure from the initial courteous reception when we booked to the last parting drop of wine as we put on our coats to leave. We ordered Cotes du Rhone and Sauvignon Blanc, middle of the road varieties that can be liquid to swig or wine to savour. These were modestly priced but richly enjoyable., which is as well as our attractively presented and delicious meals deserved a decent accompaniment.
Thank you Packhorse Inn for an enjoyable repast in convivial surroundings. Are you the best the area has to offer? Probably.
Lovely pretty gastro pub. Great decor. Staff were very friendly. The only low point was that the food was a bit lack lustre. I had the soup. Which was nice. Just nice. Then I had the scotch egg which was average. It had no flavour and I didn’t finish it. Staff took half of the price of the scotch egg off the bill. I think they should of just taken the whole price of the bill. The food is not cheap so I just felt for the price it should of been allot better. Good wine list but again pricey. £9.50 for a cotes du Rhône. Nice atmosphere though.
Delicious food, helpful staff, lovely gastro pub
An excellent lunch - top marks on all counts! Highly recommended.
The first time I came here it was for Sunday lunch. I had the roast beef which was very rare and tough. However the ambiance was good and service good so decided to try it again for lunch. I have been twice in the past month once during the week and once on Saturday and my food and the service was excellent.
Meeting old friends
My wife and I went to the Packhorse for Sunday lunch. We were immediately greeted and shown to our table by friendly staff. The roast beef was perfectly cooked and the yorkshires are huge. We both enjoyed the food and the we had a lovely table by the fire. We've been here a few times now and have never been disappointed (except for the time we went there without booking, hoping to get a table for lunch mid-week and it was fully booked!! - we won't make that mistake again!). It's a lovely pub - the only thing I would say is that there is not a lot of room at the bar if you just wanted to have a drink but other than that, it's great.
Having been here for a Christmas work meal I was excited to try it again and it did not disappoint. The meal was faultless, the service good, and the ambience lovely.
Quick business lunch - really impressed with the set menu, adapted to be dairy free. The haddock crust was delicious and unusual - will attempt (!) to recreate it at home.
Ambience great. Service very slow. Portion sizes ridiculously ( some would say cynically) small.
Overall not good value.
Comfortable, spacious, great food-just right for a special lunch occasion.
A delightful experience.
I'm sure that we shall visit again in the near future.
Sited in a lovely village with picturesque surroundings.
Excellent service nothing too much wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend.
Second time here and really enjoyed it both times. The food is delicious and the service is friendly and attentive without being obsequious or fussy. Care is taken to ensure that all diners are comfortable and you are given the impression that notbhing is too much trouble.
Ignored on arrival - Sat at bar for 45mins no menu , no greeting from FOH , ordered and got smallest starter ever , although it was only Beetroot it was “rationed “ as if it were
bars of gold - Steak arrived with one huge carrot and small cup of over cooked hard tasteless chips
I complained as my wife and I + friends have spent hundreds of pounds in this restaurant - front of house disagreed with complaints argued about Carrot and fries , no apology offered /gave Free cheese course ( my wife does not eat dairy ) Bill with wine well over £100 ( for two)
Restaurant busy as always don’t believe complacent staff care if we come back or not
As usual the food was excellent, all perfectly cooked and presented. Very friendly staff. We eat here at least once a month. The menu is due for a change as many of the courses have been static for month's. The fish and game cooking is superb. The ginger custard pudding has a slightly strange aftertaste.
Anazing food, good service and lovely atmosphere highly recommend a visit!!
Being ex residents of Moulton it is always a pleasure to come back, perhaps we would not have moved had the Pack Horse been open !! in our time it was the Queens Head.
Outstanding as always! We always love it here, and it was a lovely evening.
Lovely restaurant of decor and cosy.
However, took ages for anyone to come take our order and felt abit forgotten about as didn't even get eye contact from anyone to even say “we know your there”.
Once waitor came, he was nice and helpful and the complimentary nibbles are a really nice touch.
Food came very fast. I had the lamb roast and was disappointed with it as I had asked for well done meat as the waitor told me was no problem.. I couldn’t be bothered to send it back because my husband was already eaten. And I couldn’t eat it much anyway as was all small scrappy fatty cuttings.
Veg and potatoes nice and presented lovely however gravy was awful. It was bitter and very watery. It ruined my Yorkshire pudding as it made it soggy and bitter.
Brioche pudding was incredible and wish I just had that two times over to be honest.
Overall nice but wouldn’t rush back for a Sunday lunch. Hasn’t put me off going back.
Great food, nice atmosphere, enjoyed Sunday lunch here very much.
Fabulous food and amazing service. They really looked after us and our friend who is in a wheel chair with specific requirements. We were thoroughly impressed and absolutely adored the food
