The flying Horse Clophill

Postby Christy » Mon Mar 09, 2009 12:04 pm

It seems a shame that the flying horse will not be like many of the other pubs owned by Mitchell and Butler, ie a Harvester or Toby Carvery, in todays market the families need places to go and enjoy time together.

This area is crying out for good family pubs with places for children to play but not get on other visitors nerves. Being a mom I know that I dont want to hear my children screaming let alone any one else hearing them and having to pay for the privilage.

The Harveters are running great deals at the moment on their prices.

Has anyone tried the Grove in Barton have heard very mixed reviews
A hug and kiss for your child is a step to a brighter future.

I remember that pub,it was like an old fashioned type English pub,shame someone has gone and turned it into what seems to be what was once called a "yuppie" pub.
I thought it was a listed building?It should have remained an old English pub for families to go.I dont think this will work. :(

Glad we've sorted that out!

So has anyone tried out the Flying Horse yet - the exterior looked grey and somewhat univiting when we last drove passed.

I called in for a menu, and it is identical to The Wavendon Arms. Very modern inside, with food like a posh Beefeater.

loved the bit about posh beefeater - i can picture exactly what it will be like but doubt that phrase will be making it onto thier promotional literature :D

Have to say that the pics on their website look fab - much better inside than the dark & sometimes gloomy Beefeater setting that it used to be! :shock:

We're heading there for lunch over this coming bank holiday weekend to try it out, so will let you know what it's like - though if it's as good as The Fox in Harpenden (same chain) am sure it won't be the last time :wink:
