This attractive village pub, is spoilt by the unfriendly staff. I can honestly say that a warm welcome was NOT received, hostile would be a better description! menus were thrust at us, and when ready to order, the waitress thought it more important to finish reading her booking's sheet rather than actually serve us! Even worse this particular member of... More

We visited The Four Horseshoes whilst driving around looking at churches in the area. The pub was clean and attractive, reasonably busy for a Thursday lunchtime. We liked the fact that they provided smaller portions as a lunchtime alternative. The service was ok, not particularly quick and we had to ask for a jug of water three times (!), but... More

Thank you to Tom and all the staff who made our weekend. We have stayed in many B&Bs and understand the limitations of excellence possible. We were warned that the room (above the bar) might be a little noisy until closing time, we were even offered a slight reduction as a result but we need not have worried. We found... More

The food was very good but I think due to where we had been seated (better for our dog) we seemed to be forgotten when it came to service. However the staff where very friendly and provided water for our dog.

As a classic car club we look for a good destination for a run - the Four Horseshoes was an excellent choice. There were 34 of us in 20 cars. A group booking was made in advance and we were allocated a room to ourselves. There was plenty of parking space for our cars. Even though the pub was very... More

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. I'm sorry you wasn't overly impressed with your food. Please note it is a side salad the fish goujons are served with alongside fries, however we are more than happy to give you a larger portion of salad next time if you let us know.
