“Dorset At Its Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We went for lunch on a surprisingly sunny November day. We sat in the sun on the terrace overlooking the very tranquil valley and village. A rare treat to be able to sit out in the winter sun! It was not busy, not surprising as it was mid-week in the winter but for us that was perfect as we were able to kick back and enjoy the terrace to ourselves (there were some guests inside). We had a really great meal. I had calamari with a wicked garlic mayonnaise and sea bream for the main course with twice cooked chips. Totally yummy and didn't need to eat anything else that day! Lovely hostess. Definitely recommend it.

We felt the menu could have been slightly greater. My wife's beer battered cod and chips cooked in dripping (as all fish and chips should be!) was good the triple cooked chips slightly over done the home made tartare sauce excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed char grilled mackeral, crab croquettes, braised fennel, little sweet tomatoes, aioli, sea purslane (small amount of the latter!). Beautifully fresh and well cooked. Rhe rhubarb and apple crumble with vanilla custard we shared was exemplary. I had walked in the night before from our holiday cottage and had a superb welcome from a girl who I thought was a reincarnation of Tess of the D'Urbevilles also some of the locals!

After looking at the web I thought we had found a real gem and with a really good star rating ? ,how wrong I was . This year I have travelled the length of Great Britain and ive stayed in about 25 b&bs my budget is around £80 , I've spent £29 on travel lodges and think I've had better value for money , why my gripe ? Well room was clean but very dated , bed was ok , towels poor with frayed edges , taps had to be left running to get any hot water , room was very cold in the morning and the shower was so poor I gave up . The only good bit was the breakfast was ok . Would I stop here again NO

Room Tip: Don't stop in room 3

We were delighted to find this small, remote, dog friendly inn, and would not hesitate to visit again. We were made very welcome from the moment we said 'hello' and charmed by Susi who keeps an excellent front of house; meanwhile her partner cooks superbly - while the menu was relatively limited, this allowed him to produce excellent food with some very interesting twists, certainly not your typical pub grub.

We visited the Three Horseshoes on a number of times whilst staying in a nearby cottage, we found the food excellent and the staff were very polite and helpful. the beer garden has lovely views over the surrounding countryside, we would certainly visit this pub again if we visit Dorset again.

What a great find a few miles from Bridport, even though the lanes are very narrow The Three Horseshoes Inn, Powerstock more than met our needs, set in great countryside with opportunity to explore and walk locally. Our room, the annexe of the Inn was excellently furnished to a very high spec. with a beautiful view. We had a very warm welcome and the staff were very friendly throughout our visit. Breakfast was more than sufficient and dinner in the evening (x2) was first rate, quality again 5 star for room and food. Would not hesitate to return to repeat the experience.

Went to the Three Horseshoes for Sunday lunch and had a very poor experience. After commenting to waitress that we felt the Greek style salad was extremely small for the £10 price tag we were shocked to be offered more chips or bread instead. Their attitude to our quiet and polite comments were appalling and eventually our meals were taken away and returned with quartered tomatoes slung on top. We were eating in the beer garden at the rear of the pub and felt that they only just tolerated the two small children we had with us Can now understand why the pub was so quiet on a Sunday lunchtime in the middle of the holiday season. Normally we would have had to book for a table here over a year ago. Such a shame.
