Best roast lamb my partner had eaten for Sunday lunch

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.

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! I had the rack of lamb which was exquisite, cooked perfectly with a gorgeous port jus. My daughter had the chicken and... More

Cosy pub if eat in the main bar area and good atmosphere with friendly team . Food ; fish was good but the hamburgers tasted like they were bought in and other local pub/bar/restaurants fare better and so this suffers by comparison. Bar atmosphere was boosted my middle aged men who had finished their yoga and had fortunately changed out... More

Really glad you enjoyed your evening with us and we hope to see you very soon. I just need to point out that we make our own burgers - NOT bought in. In fact the night before we cooked and delivered 54 of them on request by a famous local restaurant in Bruton. More

New Year's Day and you're never quite sure whether an impromptu lunch will be a success. The Three Horseshoes got it right for us. A warm and friendly welcome, delicious foxy bitter from Warwickshire and very appetising food on offer for those who had a hankering for something a little different.after the Christmas indulgence. We had superb field mushrooms on... More

I confess I'm biased towards this pub. I live in the village, I'm friends with the landlord and it is my local. I don't have to write a review but they excelled themselves this weekend. It was my father's 80th birthday and the pub hosted us for supper on Friday, breakfast on Sunday whilst they had two couples to stay... More

Surely you cant go wrong with ham, egg and chips? 'Ham on the bone' sounded good and we just wanted a straightforward meal. What we got was shocking - clearly out of a plastic packet, slimy and cut in thick, shiny, squares. Both of us (good, non fussy eaters) couldn't eat it at all, so lunch was egg and chips.... More

I have just noticed this review, as we don't check TripAdvisor that often, hence the 3 week delay. Apologies you had a dismal experience. It seems that we have been let down by a relief chef whilst one of our regular chefs was on holiday. I had noticed that he had under cooked the pork shoulder that I hammed /... More

We spent a fair amount of time here over the summer and always had a lovely time. The service is always friendly and relaxed, the food is amazing and there's a great selection of drinks.
