Great seasonal menus and high quality food

Good selection of ales and ciders too. Good service and accommodating to dietary requirements. Felt like a great part of the village.

Heard very good reports from friends about this pub and thought we would try it. We only wanted a snack at lunchtime & pork pies displayed on the bar looked appetising so my partner had one with a "messy salad" and I had a BLT. She said the pie was quite disappointing with little taste and completely lacking in seasoning.... More

We called in for a meal to break up a long drive to Devon. We chose the Three Horseshoes after searching for a nice pub that was dog and child friendly. We could not have chosen better. The staff were friendly, location and garden are lovely, very nice beers and best of all was the fresh, well put together and... More

Two of us stopped here for lunch as we had to take a compulsory rest break during a navigational rally we were competing in. It just happened to be the nearest convenient place to eat; we didn't need, or want, anything special or "posh", just routine pub lunches. Between us we had soup and a BLT sandwich. I have to...

My fiancé and I visited the pub this evening on our way back from Bruton, and had a great time. We arrived at 1730 and with it being a Sunday, we knew food wasn't being served until 1800. The lady behind the bar seemed a bit flustered, but was perfectly polite. We were told the menu was being printed which... More

Bank holiday monday and my wife and I fancied lunch out. We had eaten at the Three Horseshoes before so thought we'd give it another try. I know it was a bank holiday but the menu limited to say the least. First impressions the place was filthy, god knows what state the kitchen was in. The staff looked like they... More

Firstly i would like to apologise for your experience here last Bank Holiday Monday - I am completely shocked, as we had a great day with many compliments. As we are unlikely to see you again, for the rest of the World I need to go through each point to clarify. Filthy - We have a cleaner who works very... More

Lovely large and welcoming bar with 2 fires/log burners either end of the room, separate dining area as well. Good choice of beers although my partner was a little disappointed that there were no Wild Beer Company beers on draught at the time but he enjoyed the real ale on tap. Glad we booked for Sunday lunch in the bar,... More

Stopped for a beer. Had a good selection and the Wild Beer Co Fresh from up the road was really well kept. Staff really friendly. Log fires were on. A proper, high quality country pub stumbled upon - an all too rare occurrence.

We booked and ate here last night. I could waffle on about how lovely the service was and the ambiance of the bar, but really all I want to do is rave about the quality of the food!
