The food was very good as was the service. We had a lovely night out. Sadly, the whole experience was spoilt a couple of days later when we found that someone had fraudulently tried to use our credit card. Considering the last place we had used the card was to pay for the meal we were a bit upset. This... More

One of a dying breed of local pubs close to me that still serves good, honest and delicious food that hasn't surrendered to the gastropub/Masterchef trend. Very good value and unpretentious. Service is excellent and friendly. It does get busy as you would expect so booking ahead of time is necessary especially for Sunday lunch, which is served until 17:00.... More

I've lived in the area for 40 years and had my first visit to the horseshoes for dinner with family. What a great menu, food was fantastic (especially the prawns), and I can't find fault with the food at all. Staff were great, location is good with a car park directly opposite. This is not a fancy restaurant, it's a... More

Four of us went to the pub last night for a great meal. Food is excellent value, nicely presented, large portions, tastes delicious. The chicken liver pate was beautiful we shared that as a starter. Two of us had the lamb shank which was superb, one had the pie and said it was delicious the other had the lamb cutlets.... More

We booked a table in the restaurant part of this pub for 7.30pm. When we arrived they told us that they were not ready to serve us but we should take a seat in the restaurant and look at the menu. We were then told that they would take our order after they had served a party table of 20... More

We found this pub on trip advisor and we both really enjoyed our sunday lunch there. The staff were great and super chatty and helpful, it's got a lovely country feel to it and the food was lovely. We both had the Sunday lunch and they were yummy- big portions, lovely meat, perfect roast potatoes and very good gravy. The... More

Visited Sunday afternoon for lunch. Ordered 3 main meals at 2.35pm and our food arrived at 3.50pm! When we asked for an update on our food we were told that because we hadn't ordered roasts it wasn't priority. When the food eventually arrived it was really lovely so it's a shame we waited so long. The staff offered us a... More

Our son Paul and Ilza very kindly invited us for lunch at this Pub/restaurant as we had heard very good reports on the food they served up. We all ordered the cod, chips and peas for our main course and can report that the meal was one of the best i have ever tasted. The fish was so fresh, it... More
