we drove 40 minutes to visit the shorthorn inn upon recommendation it was well worth the drive great menu and huge portions everything we ordered was lovely.... the waitresses were great helping with recommendations on what to choose and perfect service.. (The decor in the dining room decor is very different) will definitely visit again in the future...

We have visited the Shorthorn several times and always had a lovely meal so booked for my mother in laws birthday. Again, lovely meal, the only problem is that sometimes they get so busy they don't check on you during your meal as we would have liked some more chips!!! Would still return!!!

The service was swift, friendly and... More

Having booked this well in advance we were really looking forward to our meal at the Shorthorn. We have been several times and always enjoyed a good meal. We were not disappointed this time either. Our meals had been pre-booked so we were shown to our table and awaited our starters. Between us we had the Brie, Soup, Pate and... More

Lovely food,fantastic service and in a gorgeous setting, just a little out of the way from where we live and if travelling in rain or fog please be careful! But totally worth the journey!

Visited here yesterday. This place never fails to deliver and whenever i make it back here the food and service are always perfect. Portion sizes are always good and some may say too big, service is always friendly and welcoming Great meal again, can't understand the negativity for the shorthorn
