Roaring fire, beer straight from the barrel and great food. What more do you want on a rain soaked evening?

The pub is in a nice location with a great beer garden and the staff were very friendly. Menue lacked, in my opinion, enough options for children, not even chips were available to placate a hunger but fussy 12 year old. We had the roast beef and the meat was nice and rare and tender. The veg was fine although... More

As a family, we have been coming here for many years, so it was with great delight that my now elderly Parents were able to return for a thoroughly delicious lunch. Always worth booking to avoid disappointment

A wonderful setting with gardens overlooking the South Downs in the lovely village of Elsted, where village life is still felt as the backbone of the community and the 3 Horseshoes a focal gathering point. Whether you pop in for a drink or a meal, the quality of service and food is always great. The chalkboard menu in the main... More

A very old pub, a picture postcard setting, a beautiful rose garden overlooking magnificent country side ..... what more can you ask for on a summer's day ? It's great to sit in the garden, it's a lovely atmosphere, the service is friendly, there is ample parking - my only complaint is the fact that the food is quite bland... More

Somehow I feel I don't want to write a review to avoid The Three Horseshoes being discovered by others that know already. The location is one of the most idyllic in West Sussex, with a backdrop of the South Downs and wooded glades intersected by sloping fields. The pub is fully of rustic character, real ales, sloping beams & floors.... More

A great place to visit in the sunshine, lovely garden sensational views, nice selection of beer, the pub has a warm feel to it but the food is boring, pretty basic and cries out for that little extra imagination to boost my rating as I was disappointed in the meals served up. At least our dog enjoyed the steak!

we were recommended this pub for an evening meal and the food was very good but not exceptional. Though I was pleased to see Liver and bacon which is unusual these days. My husband had filo pastry chicken and sweet corn which he said was very tasty. Garden and views were super; drinks very expensive. Lovely choice of desserts, but... More
