After a poor experience a few weeks ago the last 2 weeks have been very good with all staff going out of their way to help make the dining experience a very enjoyable one and the food has been lovely... thanks to Morgan for her kind manner behind the till and to Kaye for her amazing attention to detail...

I have been a long term diner at Flying Horse over many years... last Thursday was not great... was put outside ... was the only person there... even though I booked online way in advance... was very cold... the lovely lady from Plover Security offered me a gas heater but sadly it was not working... she even tried to get me moved inside but alas all spots were taken... my waitress promised to get me my 2nd wine I had paid for... said she had it sorted... really!!! 10 mins later I had to ask where it was...oh.. sorry.. I forgot!!!! Not good enough!!! Then a patron came and closed the door to where I was sitting.. felt very neglected... was dying for sweets... nobody came near me for ages so just went home... deserved way better than this from your staff... I have now moved away from the area and it will take a lot to ever get me to go back there again... and the steak I had was pathetic... what a pity Zach wasnt on duty as he certainly knows how to look after patrons...

It was a bit of a disappointment really. For an establishment not have Proseco was really annoying and surprising. The house champagne which I had instead was awful.
Pizza very average, really hard base which was inedible.
Other senior meals at the table so so.
Will give it another go though and order from main menu.

Lovely place for a meal. Although lining up to order could be an ordeal for older clientele. And in this day of Covid and social distancing table service would be a good idea. That means no lining up and waiting. Staff were excellent. Than you

The food was good value for money. I was a bit surprised they had a seniors menu. The food took a while to come out, but it was expected as it was Mother's Day.

Staff are very friendly and the food was good. However meals came out all different times and the table wasn’t cleared throughout the duration of our sitting, we had a large table with children so chatting amongst piles of dishes wasn’t too pleasant. But overall it was decent meal! Thanks.

We have been to flying horse many times and usually have a very good meal, but last Sunday took 3 other people with us and the meal was not up to your usual standard. My roast lamb was so tough I could not cut it, my sister has Caesar Salad, the croutons were just cut up soggy bread and bacon just diced bacon pieces and the chicken stringy.We complained to the lovely waitress who apologised, but in looking back I should have sent our meals back straight away as I could not eat the meat. I had veggies for lunch. Very disappointed
