Unless your know it is here, you would drive straight past the road leading to the pub. We heard this place had new owners so thought we would give it a go - and we were not disappointed at all. There is a small outside beer garden, and a large carpark in this sleepy little hamlet, but the pug has... More

A wonderful pub tucked out of the way, so you need to look for it. The pub offers 3 casque ales, and a very good cloudy cider. The main menu is relatively small but the food is excellent.

My visiting friend was feeling a bit down about the state of the chips available in this country.

Another visit to the Three Horseshoes and it delivered again. The food is gorgeous and wine lovely......such a nice atmosphere and the food is cooked to perfection. The pub is so cosy and the staff very attentive. Well worth a visit - you won't be disappointed.

As a group of four we were warmly greeted by the barman and shown the tables available for dinner. As we were eating we offered a tab for the 1st round which we declined. 3 pints of cloudy cider and a large pinot came to £18 which wasn't cheap but I didn't let it sour the taste at all -... More
