Good homely food.

Ate here twice and both times enjoyed the food especially the steak night held Thursday and Friday. The joints of beef are bought to the table and you can choose the size you want. The first night we ate not all things on the menu were still on which was disappointing.

We ate in on Friday night as it was steak night. Cooked to perfection as ever with some great real ales. Highly recommend the horseshoe Its defiantly the best pub in Shipston by a long way.

Reasonable price but nothing special. We stopped here for lunch. The interior was fairly traditional country pub. The menu was standard pub grub and not expensive. We had to wait a very long time for the food to arrive even though it didn't appear to be overly busy (we'd only ordered sandwiches), and when it did arrive they had missed... More

Visited this fantastic spot just last Friday evening, 17th July. It was warm and welcoming from the moment we entered the door. Food was just simply delicious, other customers so very, very friendly, staff so welcoming. Wish we were sitting in it tonight, but WE WILL BE BACK!! Can't wait. Thanks "Swampy".

We went to this pub on Sunday evening for a meal but they had finished service and told us about another lovely place. We returned to the horseshoe on Monday and had a beautiful home cooked meal, served by happy and friendly staff and very reasonable prices. .. recommend highly

The food range from different burgers which were excellent right through to a good range of meals and puddings. There is a children's menu there and they even allowed my eldderly mother to chose from it as she is not a big eater now. There is a good selection of real ales and they are well kept - if you...
