    First time visit to Chestnut Horse for food and was a good opportunity as I had been given a Tastecard for Christmas. So glad I made that decision. The food was amazing! Wasn't sure we could manage three courses so just had a main and dessert. Quality all round, large portions for the main and the desserts were works of art! Will definitely be returning, sooner rather than later. "

    " Having had a taste card for a number of years you will see I am not one to write reviews - So this is my first.
    After the travel down the long single track road, that leads from the main road to the village. We found the pub with smoke coming out of the chimney. Inside every nook and cranny was full with jugs, pots, bottles etc. We were shown to a table and when another became free we asked to move and this was completed without any fuss.
    Once the food arrived we were surprised at the quantity and quality of the starter and main courses we had. Having spent £30 at Zizzi's the night before. The £40 cost of our meal was a surprise and we will be back again soon. "

    A quaint and cosy country pub in a lovely village setting. Friendly and attentive staff. I was disappointed with my choice of Thai chicken curry which came with boil in the bag rice, a stale tasting poppadom and flavourless chicken in a Thai soup. Perhaps my fault for ordering Thai food in an English pub. My husband had no complaints about his meal at all. Will definitely be back to give it another try as we loved the ambiance of this place. "
