About us

As the name suggests, The Coachman is a former coaching inn. Our strapline is “village pub and kitchen” and this is exactly what we are! Hartford has for a long time been crying out for a pub where friends old and new and neighbours could meet for a pint, meal, coffee or all three. This is exactly what we are providing. With our self-contained apartment and five en-suite rooms, we can cater for overnight stays – perfect for the business traveller looking for some home comforts.

In February 2013, the pub was totally refurbished with walls removed to improve the flow within the pub, creating an open plan informal lounge/dining area with lots of wood and leather and open fires. The coachman offers a wide range of excellent cask ale has a real ‘locals bar’ feel.

As well as the new look interior and exterior, a new kitchen has been installed enabling the Coachman to offer traditional home cooked food . See our mouthwatering menu. There is also a lovely beer garden to the rear, ideal for alfresco wining and dining.

Commuters using Hartford rail station can drop in for coffee and meals from Mid day. We also do coffee to go!.

First time we have called in for a while, and had a really excellent Sunday roast. Beef really well cooked, price reasonable and portion size good. Service top notch also! Highly recommended

We had a very warm welcome from the owner. The room is well set out,the bed was really comfy. We didn't have food here as we were going out to a party. The food did look and smell amazing. Great atmosphere in the pub,decent real ale options. Would definitely recommend the place to others.

a last minute decision to pop in for a quick evening meal, we weren't disappointed. James looked after us very well, he is friendly and cheerful and goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable, checking that you have all you need. Our meal was super, tasty and hot, and the service spot on. Keep up the good work as it's great to have The Coachman as our local.

My good lady and I went for a meal. The steak and ale pie was the best I'd ever had and my partner's lamb shank went down a real treat; all washed down with sumptuous Chilean merlot...yummy. Had the acoustics been softer, the rearranging off tables and chairs would have been less jarring. Apart from that, 5-star evaluation would have been spot on. However, owners and staff were extraordinarily friendly and professional.

The rooms were reasonably spacious with a tiny shower. Relatively clean but structural issues were obvious. The atmosphere in the adjoining pub/restaurant was good, with most of the staff being very friendly. The food quality was good, but overpriced. After the pub/restaurant shut down, there were no staff on site at all. When, at 2am, a pipe in the ceiling burst spewing boiling hot water all over the room - bed, wardrobe, floors all soaked - the fire alarm went off for all of the rooms but nobody arrived for the following 45 minutes at which point we called several numbers of staff from the website to convey this information. They then took 30 minutes to arrive and turn off the water and alarms. This meant we had no access to basic cleaning facilities in the morning and could not even drink tap water until the restaurant opened. More concerning was the fact that even though fire alarms had been triggered, no emergency services nor staff were immediately summoned to the premises. In the end, I slept on a cold floor so that my grandparents could have a bed that wasn't soaked through.
