Looked like a good, traditional village pub, but we didn't get the chance to find out. Despite being the only pub in this rural Vale of Belvoir village, we were informed by the staff that they do not allow dogs on the premises. There was a carpeted dining room, and we fully understand any reticence to encourage dogs into this... More

We arrived almost too late for Sunday lunch but were allowed to order, though one of the waitresses seemed a bit put out and said we should hurry up. The lunch was superb, and no problems with gluten-free provision for me. The general ambience was lovely; wish we had somewhere like this near home! We didn't stay here, so can't... More

Food quality fair only. Expected the staff but be good after reading reviews but found them surly. Toilets were dirty and in need of a make over. Won't be visiting again. The pub had lost its charisma that we remembered.

Stayed at The Royal Horse Shoes for one night on 7th July. It’s a.ten minute drive from Melton Mowbray. This is a great little place that is popular with the locals not only for the great beers but the top quality food on offer, it was friendly and had a good atmosphere. The night of our stay, Monday, was ‘Pie... More

We were able to pull up outside so he didn't have too far to walk and as soon as... More

Stayed here as no other hotels in the vicinity. Accommodation is in a separate block behind the pubs, an annexe of just 4 fairly small rooms. Really nice, warm comfortable rooms, bed was really good and nice hot shower. Excellent pub food and drink. Breakfast was a full English cooked by the owner, Mick. Would definitely stay here again, without... More

The first time we had been. Disapointed, bar meal standard not restraunt standard. Boring menu very unimaginative. Staff were slow. Meal average and too big. Needs more thought. Shame, the location is in the beautiful vale of Belvoir. Steph

We stayed in the hotel saturday 15th june. The lady that checked us in seemed nice, room 1 was nicely decorated although small, when we walked in the door i fell over a chair but there was nowhere else to put it. We went into the pub at night which stayed open quite late, the same woman was there from... More
