I am very sorry that there were no real ales on sale. We had the funeral of the late Mr Carassco (previous landlord) and were expecting around 60 guests - 300 turned up and drank us dry. The Swan leapt to our rescue with a couple of barrels but they were not ready until Sunday afternoon. The chef does not... More

My husband and I and our two friends from London decided to give the Three Horseshoes a further try as new management had taken over. (we had not been impressed in past). Had a lovely evening. Food was excellent, staff were very pleasant and the chef Adrian came out to see us. Shane the waiter was very attentive. Our friends... More

On 13th July 2014 I wrote a very negative but justifiable review about The Three Horseshoes under the heading “Never again” name: Kim F, Suffolk, due to a very disappointing meal we experienced. On 12th October 2014 we revisited The Three Horseshoes to take up the landlord’s kind offer of a free meal but it was not solely because the... More

my husband and I thought we would try out this pub which was under new management. The food was dry and had the appearance of being old (dried ends to the spring onions and some lettuce which was discoloured). I never thought it was possible to get a ham salad wrong. The landlord did not offer to bring over our... More

In response to your review. Why oh why did you not tell us of your dissapointment whilst still in the pub? I agree that our barmaid is one of the best, however if she was behind the bar then I was not on duty that day. When I am not on duty I leave the waiting and serving to those... More

In reply to your comments I would like to say that all our food is fresh. I am informed that the only frozen food we use are peas and beans. Why did you not complain on the day? I would have personaly put it right. As of next April all our vegetables and fruit (when in season) will be fresh... More

Walked over footpath from local airfield; Nice looking pub, Suntrap ouside dining area. Next to ancient church. Disapointing food; Ham egg & chips hard to get wrong, but grimly overcooked chips, rock soil eggs & circular plastic ham, (+ point for Heinz)

Visited this pub today for a pint and snack. The beer was fine but the food was grim and the dessert terrible. The pub website says it is under new management but our experience has done nothing for their reputation. We will not be back.

Good selection of ales and the food was good. I will be going back there. The new people there are making a big effort and deserve some reward.

On a recent visit to the The Three Horseshoes i was very dissapointed. On arriving at the pub i walked in with my family to be greated by a lovely barmaid who was very polite and welcoming. Unfortunately there was no atmosphere in the pub. Even though its summer or should i say coming to the end of summer there... More
