My wife organised her Arts Club Chistmas lunch for 40 persons at the Shire Horse on Friday 21st December. The food , service and ambience were first class and I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue .Food was served hot ( and on hot plates which is a must for me) and the service by friendly cheerful staff excellent.Well done to all at the " Shire".

Friendly 'can do' staff a joy

My mum decided she wanted to celebrate her 85th birthday with a group of friends at the Shirehorse. I wondered if this was a good idea as we had been told we could not book; she has a severe allergy, is now quite frail and has very rigid ideas of how 'things should be done'.
On arrival we asked the staff if we could sit together and within minutes a few tables had been pulled together for us. The staff happily took the cake we had brought and offered to light the candles and present it to her at the end of the meal. They showed great patience and nothing was too much bother. Everything we needed they had already anticipated. Despite their obvious busyness they even carried her meal from the carvery to the table for her so that none of her guests had to postpone getting their meal to do this. All this was carried out with a genuine smile and a 'can do' attitude. The food was good too and wonderful value!
All in all she had a wonderful time and the whole experience was pleasant and much less stressful than anticipated thanks to your staff.
