Cannot understand the great reviews on Tripadvisor as the food was pretty average. Dined here with friends. The breaded prawns were ok---certainly brought in and not home made. The biggest disappointment was my main course---the mixed grill which was very poor despite costing a whopping £22.95. The portion was huge but the quality was not that good. I can forgive... More

Scenic location, right on our route. Pleasant interior and staff, great food nicely presented and generous portions. My baguette was a meal in itself! Just a shame the place wasn't busier.

Lovely little pub in scenic location, service is friendly and excellent. Has a great selection of fresh fish and their fish stew is absolutely delicious). Their roast dinners are huge so make sure you are hungry when you go there! There is only about 30 covers in the restaurant so booking in advance is advisable (especially on Sunday)

Our large group of 19 had a very pleasant lunch at The Horseshoes last week. Staff were very accommodating and looked after our every need. We had five children in our large family group, two of which were under two years of age - this was absolutely no problem and we were all made to feel extremely welcome! The Sunday... More

My girlfriend and I went for Sunday Roast, our first visit. The food was great because there was an option of S/M or L sizes! Also different meat options. Quality veg and meat etc, but my only complaint is that the presentation and delivery was pretty shoddy. I know a Roast isn't Michelin style food but my plate was just... More

Popped in for a spot of lunch and had the turbot with a brown shrimp sauce. the fish was well cooked still being firm and moist and the shrimp sauce was the perfect to accompany it. The portions were large as always and the service and staff attentive. I eat her quite a lot and is always a gfood experience.
