“Splendid evening meal for 18 Classic Car owners”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

18 Members of the North Norfolk Classic Vehicle Club had a meal, and were very well looked after. Table was booked on arrival all laid out and ready even special mneu cards for my group. Being a very hot evening we were invited to eat in the garden rather than the room they had prepared, no worry for them, we chose the garden and all had a superb meal. We have stopped ober for food 3 times previously over the last foru years and it has always been good, they are friendly helpful. They prepared all the food so we could eat together which was great. Yes there are plenty of pile it high eat it and go pubs on the A140, if that suits you then fine, if not make the 4 Horsehoes your first choice. We will not hesitate to do that on our next trip in the area. Cannot comment on the rooms as were only had food.

Quaint, old-fashioned pub that is worth seeking out. No jukeboxes etc. Food and staff excellent. Just a shame that despite being a Freehouse all the beers, including guests, were from the Greene King range.

OK. Neither good nor bad. Not worth a detour. OK to go to if you are in the vicinity. But I feel there is nothing particularlarly to recommend it, other than the fact that it is the only pub in thornham magna.

We have visited for dinner many times and this time decided to visit on a Monday evening. We didn't make a reservation, thinking it would be quiet, but the eating area was still quite full which made for an enjoyable evening. The Yorkshire Pudding Wrap and Tuna Pasta Bake were particularly good as was the White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake and the Lemon Crunch. The service was good as usual. We will be back.

Have visited this pub loads of time, always had a great meal (good portions and very tasty). Beautiful "chocolate-box" Suffolk pub, with great atmosphere and very friendly landlord and staff. Would highly recommend it to anyone, either in the area or thinking of visiting Suffolk.

The service is unique, from walking in the door to leaving.

The staff were all happy and proffessional and timed the service spot on! The food was excellent well cooked and presented on the plate, the atmosphere was brilliant. I have visited many places throughout the UK and have always had something to comment on, the Four Horseshoes, its staff and location are 10/10.

I have to say that Tom (the manager) Rosie (behind the bar) and the two stars Elliot & Jai really make this place worthwhile, I must point out that both Elliot and Jai really impressed me with their attention to detail and there outstanding service! Rosie behind the bar was smiling throughout and Tom the manager didnt stop! WELL DONE GUYS!

Would I recommend this place? YES! I will be taking my friends there next week...

We live quite close to the Four Horseshoes and over the years have watched it go through many phases, depending on the owners at the time and their ability to run a good Pub. However even through all the changes the actual building has had a lot to offer as it is beautiful both inside and out and has a wonderful atmosphere.
Now the current owners have brought it back to all its glory. Together with all their Staff they are friendly and you can see that customer satisfaction is of prime importance. The food is wonderful and according to my husband the Guest Beers are first class.
The only problem is that because it is in our vacinity it is not a great help to my diet as we will drop everything and book in for a meal at the slightest of excuses.
