We were staying just down the road at Newton House in early August 2014 and were recommended to eat at the Coach & Horses. In fact we ended up eating there three nights running as the food was so good and the staff very friendly and helpful. Good range of beers for those who want and we were offered a jug of excellent tap water when we requested a glass. The outside may not look special but inside is welcoming and well maintained.
After a 25 mile cycle ride and a recommendation from the Good Pub Guide, The Coach and Horses was a welcome vision on the horizon! The pub area was quite small with most space used for diners. i had a pint of really tasty pedigree (there were only 2 cask ales on which was disappointing). However, the one thing i will remember about this visit to the Coach and Horses was the lady behind the bar - a smile at least would have been nice! 0 out of 10 for customer service!
Exceptionally good food at very reasonable rates, good choice of local ales and a what's on next chalkboard is a nice touch. Welcoming and knowledgable landlord, nice cottagey feel in what is a large building. Very convenient for Ashbourne and the good walking countryside around. Highly recommended.
We were glad we followed the 'Good Pub Guide' and visited the Coach & Horses. We ate early on a Friday evening and already the pub was busy. Nice mix of people eating and those just popped in for a drink. Food was excellent, service fiendly and efficient. Not pricy at all. Defintely worth going to.
