Great Friday Fizz!

A great way to see in the weekend if you like prosecco (at a discount!) and we've seen it in several times this summer! Living locally, it's a ten minute drive to this delightful inn. We've always enjoyed its ambience - both inside and out - for more years than we care to remember and it's a great... read more

This is a popular pub/restaurant with a fairly wide menu and very accomodating staff. The food on our visit was of average quality and according to our guests, who had visited before, not quite as good as they experienced the last time. Overall it represented reasonable value for money and a nice atmosphere. Our take away memory though was of... More

I really cannot understand the harsh, negative reviews on here. Is there another Three Horseshoes in Spellbrook?! I ate here on a Sunday around 17:00 in a party 6 adults, a 5yr old and 1yr old and we really couldn't fault it. My wife made a substitution on her meal, I asked specifics on a couple of dishes and the... More

Overpriced microwaved filth that you may just need a chainsaw to get through . Gave my "feedback" to the manager and all he could do was offer us a desert . We thought this would be complimentary due to the nature of the terrible main course. But when the bill came it wasn't to be .I paid and left and... More

Booked this restaurant a week prior to visiting for 13 people. Called on the morning to confirm booking. Everything ok. But when we turned up they couldn't find out booking. Made us wait for a table said ten minutes but was over half hour. Toilets were filthy. Two out of the three had no toilet roll. Taps didn't work either.... More
