A Great Local Pub

This our local pub for work and every time we go in, we're greeted cheerfully and with a knowing of what drinks will be purchased. A lovely place full of locals and the odd walker from Donnington castle, with enough people you get quite a hum of life which is always pleasant. Great owners and... read more

Just eaten there today and it was very good indeed. Hospitable staff, good food and good collection of local beers made for an entertaining Sunday lunch for the group of 7 we were in. The menu isn't huge, but as they explained they'd rather have a smaller menu of sustainable, local produce of a higher quality that is prepared by... More

We were looking for a halfway house where we could meet up with our Son for the occasional lunch and came across The Three Horseshoes in Donnington. Having eaten at many Pubs that provide an excellent friendly atmosphere with high quality, well presented food, I would have to say this place is up there with the very best. Nothing was... More

Arrived just before 2 pm on a Thursday, an hour before closing time to be told that there was no food left. A shame because we had been told it was very good. The welcome was pleasant and very apologetic and the place looked good.

We took a trip out with our elderly mum and lads (aged 17 & 19) so happy to keep everyone happy. After a look at Donnington castle we found this pub and couldn't have been happier. A friendly welcome by a young happy lab (our boys missing our dog at home) and a welcoming sofa where we sipped away on... More

Walk through the door and immediately you are embraced in a warm, friendly and classic atmosphere. If your looking for a casual drink with friends there is a fantastic sofa area or if you'd rather eat (which i would recommend you do) then you can sit down in the dining area. The food itself is second to none, cooked fresh... More

It's great to see the Three Horseshoes back on its feet. It has been a remarkable transformation since Sara and Robert took over and their hard work is really paying off. After several visits over the last few months we decided to have a family Christmas celebration at the pub and we were not disappointed! As always we got an... More

This place has, apparently, got new owners (as of Aug 2015) and we were very impressed. It's pub food but it's very good. The lovely Czech waitress was charming.

Warm welcome and good food. Will visit again soon. Menu is smallish but is a nice selection. They seem to doing a small/medium selection of dishes very well rather than a large range of average. Dog friendly too.

Popped in on gourmet burger night and they were some of the best burgers we had ever had. Beer and wines were great too and really friendly people. Highly recommended and we will be back.
