    What happened to the Hungry Horse?

    For those who don't know, the Hungry Horse is a pub based restaurant and as you can imagine by the name, the meals can be quite sizeable!

    Is it just the Hungry Horse that I used to go to that has gone down hill or has it nationally turned rotten? Many years ago I used to pop in now and then with mates and order a meal that would proberly have fed three of us rather than one! Food was never outstanding but done the job for a dinner whilst in the pub. Over the years it seems that the quantity of the food, as well as the quality, has got smaller and worse. My last and final visit, the food and service proved to be so bad it was hilarious. My meal came first, which was small, but what was worse was we had to wait about half an hour after I received my meal for my partners food. What made us laugh was my partner ordered chicken soup, and she ended up with a bowl of chicken flavoured water as the soup was made via powder and hot water!!!!!! Surely if they don't make fresh chicken soup, tinned soup would have been an improvement on this!

    We won't be returning!

    Thats what I was thinking when writing, and you always imagine things to be bigger, better e.t.c. the longer time has passed. Its more the fact that an establishment, even a pub lunch, thinks that serving powdered soup is ok

    Ive been to a Hungry Horse once in Somerset about 3 years ago. The food was great!!! Maybe with the ecomomic decline they've taken a few shortcuts OR your chef decided to have a midlife crisis....

    used to use our local a lot, always well cooked, lots of food for money @ good price was always busy though

    When I was a kid Wagon Wheels were the size of dustbin lids lol etc etc

    That's really funny (not in a haha way lol) but I was only talking about it on Friday about how we used to go there (5 or 6 yrs ago) all th time but they've all closed down near me now!!

    we have one nearby but its not good there anymore the food is horrible and its never busy i wonder why !

    i think the one near us is still open. i know it got closed down a while back due to selling suspect meat, but they have been taken over by someone else now

    Visited one in Kirkcaldy, Fife about a week ago, it was awful.

    Food took 45 minutes to arrive, made a complaint and was told they were short staffed, not even an apology.

    Our nearest one used to be great but it was taken over about a year ago and is just not the same.
