we recently visited the area staying at ettington chase. To escape and get a good wholesome meal, well presented and hot this palce proved a welcome rest-bite. The beer was good. The meal was value and plentiful. The staff were pleasant and knew what to they were doing. A plus for all.

This is a real pub where you feel right at home, have good food, a pint and meet great people. We loved the place and we'll be back soon. Thanks to Swampy, Wobbly Wobbly and the others for making this a special visit.

This was our third visit to this establishment and we were not disappointed. We have sampled quite a few things on the menu now and will certainly be going back. The staff are friendly and you have a very warm welcome. One of the best things is they allowed our dog in and that is worth a lot to us.... More

Myself and my wife stopped here for a quick drink we also had our two dogs. We sat in the garden which was quite small but cosy. The bar man was very friendly and welcoming and the locals friendly. Nice place.

This is a real pub with a warm welcome and good food. The crab salad I had was excellent. When I'm next in Shipston I will be sure to visit again.

I had already received a friendly email in reply to an enquiry about parking from early morning, and the welcome inside was just as warm; 'Swampy' is the... More

A friend and I were looking for a quick lunch, and coupled with a need to park our car within easy walking distance decided on the "Horseshoe". The greeting upon entry was lovely as was all of our dealings with all of the staff. The menu was comprehensive and well laid out and reasonably priced. They didn't have any appletiser... More
