coach and horses

Welcome to the Coach and Horses, Bishop’s Stortford.

At the Coach you’ll find a beautiful country pub full of character, cosy compartmental dining areas, a roaring fire and garden allotment. When the weather is right, our secret decked outdoor space is ideal for alfresco dining and a few drinks.

We’re one of the “18 real ale pubs you need to visit in Hertfordshire” serving local McMullen beer. Our food is lovingly created by our chefs with a focus on British heritage and seasonal ingredients. Sunday’s roasts are championed with our homemade Yorkshire puddings.

The Coach and Horses on Thorley Street is directly on the border of Essex and Hertfordshire, located on the southside of historic market town Bishop’s Stortford, being a popular route with cyclists. If you’re looking for a near-by family activity, fruit picking at Cammas Hall Farm is always a summer favourite.

Sam and the team look forward to greeting you soon.
