We visited the Horseshoes with friends. It is a lovely traditional old country pub in the village of Upshire just near Epping Forest (easy to reach just of the M25). The staff were very welcoming and bought menus to us in the garden while we had a first drink. The menu is fairly extensive and varied. All the food was... More

We stopped here by chance on the way back from Cambridge; had our dog in the car and were looking for a pub where dogs are allowed and with a nice park close by. The girl behind the bar was very friendly and our order arrived quickly- both ordered a Ploughman's. It just wasn't up to the standard we expected.... More

Great food from this warm little unassuming pub. No frills but great fish of gargantuan proportions and lovely beer batter on my Good Cod Almighty sized fish that tasted "Just out of the Sea fresh and softky flakey.Great home made Chips and garden (or mushy) peas. I loved it and cannot wait to take my wife there Yummie! Bon appetit!

I came here on the recommendation from my aunt. A small pub with lots of charm and a really nice menu. Big portions too. Well worth a visit. In the summer its nice to sit in the pub garden with a nice view over london.

The Sunday roasts on offer were excellent to eat and very good value. Good idea offering three meal sizes with prices that match the portions. Family group of five,all adults,of which four of us had the small meal and one a medium. The small meal was certainly generous with a large selection of vegetables and a large Yorkshire pudding! Very... More
