Very good food great service nice and quiet for a romantic meal
Another wonderful dinner at this wonderful restaurant this weekend. Excellent menu, atmosphere and friendly efficient service even when busy. Highly recommend.
Service and food were excellent, with a slightly different twist from normal pub food, very well presented.
As always, top notch food, perfect service and a lovely night out :)
The main thing we would take away from the experience was that it was incredibly overpriced for what you got. A medium glass of wine cost £8.50, a few pieces of broccoli cost £4 and the steak, which was around half the size of a normal steak and over salted, was served with 1 (yes, 1) carrot and a dollop of purée, and cost £25. In my opinion, the meal was barely worthy of half the cost of it.
However, the staff were lovely and very attentive. The restuarant was incredibly warm, but in fairness it was a rather warm day.
Basically, it was a nice meal and the food was fine, but nowhere near worth the price.
Third time we have been and the food is always excellent. Everything is beautifully prepared.
Anniversary stay and expected a nice meal. The menu is very limited and very expensive. I ordered the Ribeye and although 24 pounds is a lot, for a good cut of meat nicely cooked...it is worth it. I received a small slab of overcooked meat with most of it being fat. NOT AT ALL what 24 pounds should buy. My wife went to a veggie option as the menu did not offer another meat option besides a burger or prawns. The veggies were ok, but not what one would expect for a nice meal out.
Overall, not that great and overpriced.
As for the hotel, the pub was open till about midnight and the noise is LOUD when trying to get some sleep. Also, makes for a bad atmosphere when on an anniversary date getaway.
We had booked lunch at the Packhorse on the recommendation of friends and as a result of it's rating in Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Despite the high temperatures the temperature in the restaurant was comfortable. The atmosphere was good with plenty of room between tables. The food was excellent and we will look to return when the opportunity arrises.
First time here- The pub itself is stunning. High quality finish and staff very good. Personally I felt the main menu was a little limited in choice but I do understand that the fresh food element plays a part. My husband's scampi was very tasty but the portion was too small as disproportionate to my burger which was bigger. £18 for the scampi and he had to order a Meat platter to feel full, which left him feeling quite peeved. The burger was very nice however the chips already had salt on and for someone who doesn't like a huge amount of salt, it's a little gripe..
I would visit again as the surroundings are lovely but I'd make sure my husband ate something first to ensure he didn't leave hangry!
Very nice food, nice place to have a meeting and quiet discussion, no music blaring away. We were given time to eat our meal without being hurried. Certainly recommended.
Great lunch time meal and the sunshine was a bonus.
Another excellent trip to this lovely restaurant. Friendly staff and excellent food, couldn't ask for more. Garden lovely for a drink too. Highly recommended.
We have eaten and had occasional drinks in the packhorse on many occasion. The food, drink and ambiance always comes up trumps. The garden is good although lacks size to cope with many people and if we were very picky then we would say be prepared for a wait at the small bar because locals hog the bar and gain priority over getting served for drinks. On the whole a thumbs up and 8 out of 10 score overall.
Ps dogs are alowed 👍
Great food and friendly, professional and efficient service as ever. Good to be able to sit in the garden.
I met family here for a Fathers Day lunch, the bar is small and was full; although the pub was extremely busy. Once we were shown to our table it was much more relaxed. The food was good and the service was excellent, I would recommend the Packhorse
Would have liked more choice options on the set lunch menu.
Lovely fresh food. Relaxed atmosphere and location and friendly staff. Our second visit and we were well pleased.
Fantastic food .... Great menu. The fish dishes were superbly cooked. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were made to feel very welcomed.
Ran out of ice cream. Replaced with chocolate Mousse didn’t tell us...
Delicious al fresco Sunday supper. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming throughout the evening which just makes for a great dining experience.
We had the most delicious roast beef & Yorkshire pudding (huge and perfection!) accompanied by the most sublime gravy. The wine selection is fantastic, varied and good value. A lovely relaxed evening; the perfect way to spend a Bank Holiday Sunday.
We had a lovely meal on a Friday night, very friendly staff, great menu. We left just before 11pm and it was still buzzing.
Great Sunday evening dining. Attentive, yet unobtrusive, staff.
We went after a days racing, enjoyed the garden then had a delicious dinner - the desert I had was creative and so tasty.
Overall the meal was superb and my foodie friends thought it was brilliant.
So this restaurant comes highly recommended.
Lovely lunch in beautiful garden. Highly recommend.
Nice place, friendly staff but very slow service
We had a voucher from Xmas so this was our first visit. well worth the wait and we will be back!
Absolutely excellent location, food, and service. Service in particular was stand out, they did everything possible to ensure we had a special evening. Thank you.
Just as good as ever! Delightful staff and great ambience!
Food was lovely. Nice setting. Today dinner was lovely. Garden is lovely in the summer.
Had a lovely meal here whilst staying in the hotel. I have to say the highlight here is the service - very attentive when needed to be. The restaurant manager was excellent, truly excellent at his job. Looking after everyone in the restaurant well. Food was also very good but in my opinion not standout (other than the bread course which was insanely good). Would recommend and come here again.
Our first time at The Packhorse. Okay Sunday lunch, nothing to make us return. Failed to impress our guests - except the location.
A really nice venue with welcoming staff and service. However, food bland, pretentious and overpriced. No option for dairy intolerant.
Sorry we won’t be returning
Excellent evening meal which was served speedily and with much humour. The whole staff were excellent to create an very pleasant evening out. Doubt could have been better unless FOC.
Relaxed comfortable atmosphere. Great welcome. Fantastic food.
Great lunch with friends as we have come to expect. Good food served with just the right amount of casual friendliness from the staff without losing any formality.
We went to the packhorse for a my girlfriends birthday and was very happy with the service and the food, as a birthday present for my girlfriend they gave her a free espresso martini with her dessert, I would definitely go back again!
Totally perfect - again. We travel from Norwich for a meet with friends from Royston... good food is important to us and the Packhorse has never let us down
Service was at a snails pace to almost non existent at times. We ordered a specific beer and was given a different beer as the ordered one ran out but the waitress did not say anything hoping we did not notice. We only found out the reason when we returned it. It then took half an hour before anyone took our orders and we had to asked for some bread a few times before it finally turned up with fanciful small pieces swimming in oil. When we asked for just plain bread and butter the waiter bought one piece but quartered saying it was lightly toasted when in fact it appears stale and possibly left over from the morning’s breakfast. The starter finally arrived 45 mins later which was nice but the quail we ordered as a main was tough as old boots and had to be returned. There were quite a number of waiting staff but doesn’t appear to be doing much. In fact one of them took a look at the room and turned her back. There weren’t many people eating as they were all waiting for their food. Will not be going there again and will cross this restaurant off our list!
Great addition to our weekend in Newmarket, lovely decor, authentic vibe, attentive staff and delicious food (not your average pub style, a notch up) - loved it.
Very good food, and impeccable service. Only negative is the table we were seated at is very close to the bar and it’s a little off putting to be stared at by people propping up the bar, but it’s a minor niggle, and not enough to detract from the overall experience. Well done, your staff are a real credit to your business.
