About the Galloper

Welcome to the Galloping Horse! The Galloping Horse has served the community of Harrington for over 150 years, originally as a resting place for weary travellers. Then it was surrounded by fields, farms and pastures and, as High Harrington grew, so as did the pub with several additions, alterations and modifications made over the years.

Recently the pub became a privately owned free-house for what we believe is the first time in its history and received a major renovation and expansion which was completed in early 2017. Time passes though! and here in 2023 we’ve just completed a second major refurb of the interior, plus a major facelift of the outside garden areas to enhance the pub’s offering.

At a time when village pubs struggle to survive, we aim to maintain and cherish the Galloper’s place in the heart of the community and continue with our traditional values of great home cooked food and hospitable service. We hope you enjoy your visit and we would dearly like you to feel that you are;

“Always Among Friends”

We would like to thank you so much for your valued custom.

The pub has several distinct areas and here’s what we had in mind in dividing it up this way. This is YOUR pub and we hope you enjoy making these spaces your own.

Your new Galloping Horse is a great experience for everyone.

Drink after work or meal out with family or friends?

Call and see us soon.

Nigel’s Bar

The craic, the bustle, the friendly bar staff, the Sky and BT Sports on the big screen; our bar was refurbished in 2022 and reopened with a smart and cosy new look as Nigel’s Bar.

Nigel’s Bar for us is about not forgetting our roots as a community drinkers pub. Hang out at the bar or have a comfortable seat at a table. Well-behaved dogs on leads can come too.

It’s the place for people to meet for a quick one on the way home or for one of many on a night out.

NB! Under the terms of our licence, children are not allowed in the bar, although they are very welcome in the rest of the pub.

Wuky’s Nook

A comfy area of the pub perfect for gathering round the table; a great place to be in the day or the evening.

Wuky’s Nook is the place to relax over a long conversation and a barrista coffee, a glass of fine wine or beer. You can enjoy meals from our main menu here too of course.

Our Thursday night pub quiz happens here too and it’s also the perfect venue for your private party.

Wuky’s Nook, a quieter zone away from the bustle of the bar but still in the heart of things.

The Restaurant

The place to eat at a proper table with comfy chairs and banquettes and flexibly sized tables; for couples, for families, for groups of friends small and large.

See the menu and food service times and don’t forget to check out our specials boards.

Booking is recommended but not always essential. You can book online, or call or message us to reserve your table. You’re welcome to use any reserved table before the booked time but please be prepared to find another seat when we need it back.

The Garden

Our outside space was remodelled in 2023 and we’re really proud of how it’s looking now.

There’s more seating to make the most of our better days, refreshed planting and fabulous sheltered areas with patio heating(!) if the British weather is less than kind to us.

Come join us to eat and drink outside at the Galloper! The new garden area is a great extension to the pub’s indoor spaces and is justly popular with our customers. NB The outside tables cannot be reserved. Thanks for your understanding.
