“Just a few niggles but overall a very enjoyable experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We received a very cool welcome on arrival and were just pointed in the direction of our room for the night, the Loxborough room. The room had a very pleasant view, overlooking the small rear garden, weeping willow, a pond, fountain and submerged red telephone box. The only downside to this was the noise of conversation and cigarette smoke from drinkers in the garden wafted in through our open window, so we closed it, end of problem. We were booked in for dinner of course, as the food was the main reason we had decided to stay here. The menu was very appealing and I spent some time in selecting my preferred dishes, finally settling on pan fried scallops with pea puree, crispy parma ham shards and black pudding crumble followed by pan fried fillet of Cornish monkfish with saffron risotto, confit tomatoes and asparagus, tomato and olive oil coulis. Both dishes provided a lovely, thoroughly enjoyable combination of flavours. I was brought the wrong starter initially but this was quickly remedied once the maitre d' noticed. Service was very quick and efficient making us feel somewhat rushed when we were eating, we tried to linger a little over dessert which was a divine experience, vanilla and yoghurt panna cotta with poached blackberries, quite the best panna cotta I have ever had! We then retired to our room knowing that the digital signal for the television was so awful to make viewing virtually impossible, (we did report this but unlike other guests, our bill was not adjusted).
Breakfast the following day was delicious, I particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit and the beautifully cooked scrabbled eggs with tasty smoked salmon.
Our room overall was comfortable but little things like the short flex on the kettle which meant it had to be boiled on the floor, the not quite clean bath and the mouldy shower screen seal spoiled our general impression. It would be better too if guests were made to feel more welcome and valued.

Stayed here for one night as a treat.
When we arrived it was early evening and it's was thundering and lighting and raining heavily.
We managed to squeeze into the bar area for a quick drink , as all the other tables had been set up for evening diners.
Our room was at the top of the Inn over the bar , but we didn't hear a thing from below.
We had a great meal , that was reasonably priced and of very good quality.
The digital tv reception didn't work and when we told the manager he made a suitable discount to our bill and advised us that he would sort out the aerial or whatever as quickly as possible.
The bed was very comfortable and it was so quite.
On waking in the morning the valley was slightly covered in a mist and through it you could see red kites circling and soaring above , quite low.
The breakfast was freshly cooked using local produce and was one of the best we have had at any establishment recently.
All in all a very pleasant place to stay and good value.

Lunchtime Friday 30 August. Have eaten there occasionally for 4 years. We took some good friends for their first visit. Firstly no serviettes on the table and we had to summon young dumpy waitress in order to get wine list to order. She was brusque and seemed preoccupied. eventually we managed to place food order. At that point ten or so young men sat down to eat and the noise was beyond painful. We brought that to attention of the "managaress" she said she could do nothing. We struggled through our mains then had to sit in the garden to eat our deserts. The food was not of the usual standard. Sad to see an old favourite descend to this level of care and cooking Next time we will be up the road at the Sir Charles Napier

We held a part for 24 of us at The Three Horse shoes on a Sunday and it could not have gone better. The marquee was set up so we were in there and had 3 tables of 8. Bubbly was flowing on arrival and the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The food was fantastic and everyoe has come back to me to tell me what a lovely day they had. I would recommend this restaurant for a nice quiet date night or a larger family party. The staff weere fantastic, the venue is just in a lovely setting and the food really hit the spot. Very very happy with all.

Review of restaurant only, did not stay here. Visited the inn on Bank Holiday Monday lunchtime. Not surprisingly, all tables in the restaurant were fully booked, however it was such a lovely day that it was preferable to sit outside and take in the stunning views of the countryside. The staff were efficient and courteous.Chose to eat a risotto which was tasty and plentiful. All other members of our party enjoyed their meals. Car park was full, however there is an overspill car park to an adjoining field, which is a good indicator of how popular this place is.

What can I say this is a beautiful part of the country, Excellent countryside so very quite and peaceful, The staff make you very welcome as for the FOOD well that is second to none it's of the same quality that you would expect from a 5* London Restaurant or Hotel. Waking up in the morning with the one you love in a lush bed , the sound of the birds and a clip clop of a horse passing by what more can one ask for Pure Heaven, My Husband and I have returned a few times now and WILL continue too. For that special getaway or just a plain holiday we Highly Recommend The Three Horseshoes Inn, We are definitely returning for our 40th Wedding Anniversary in 2014.

Room Tip: All rooms are of EXCELLENT quality 5* +

Looking somewhere for Sunday lunch, we hit the search engine as we were in the area, this lovely looking place came up.

Arriving, place looks clean, nicely kept, busy and smelling good. Grabbed a menu, not a huge selection especially for vegetarians. Asked what else you could offer 'we'll put 2 on the plate'. Ok, I let that one go but we're in the vegetarian age now we need to see much more creativeness to cater for people, being a keen cook myself I know how easy it is to produce some stunning vegetarian dishes.

Looking on the menu there were no children's options, so we asked and we would be charged £9.50 for 2 courses, reasonable. We all ordered just 2 courses. £21.50 per adult and £9.50 for my daughter. We had a single drink each.

Ordered the food, wife had blue cheese soufflé, I had roast beef and young daughter had leek and potato soup, they are both vegetarians.

Food arrived, soufflés were not great to look at, presentation poor with just some salad scattered underneath, my roast average, 2 slices of beef, 2 potatoes and a bowl of veg with a soggy Yorkshire pudding. Nothing seasoned. The soup though was nice.

Deserts were fine, nothing to blow you away, typical 80's classics, sticky toffee pudding and Eaton Mess.

Now this is the part of the restaurant experience that is the part people remember most, paying, checking and leaving with a good impression. I went to pay, being outside due to lack of tables inside you had to order and pay later at the bar. Requested the bill which would have been £64 including drinks. It stated £84. Naturally I questioned it with one person who went away, then somebody else came out and I mentioned that one of the meals was a childrens meal at £9.50. She went away, came back and rudely asked 'so which was the childrens choice?'.....

I explained the gentleman had told us £9.50. SHE wasn't happy, someboby grabbed the receipt and re-calculated and presented me another bill for £77.11 So, a J2O, pint of cider and a small Pinot Grigio comes to £24.50? After much deliberation and questioning they agreed to take off another £6 and wouldn't go any further. Absolutely disgusting.

There is a reason a restaurant still advertises awards for 2008/2009 because unfortunately they no longer warrant such accolade. Drove off angry and very disappointed.

Thank you taking your time to both email us and attack us on trip advisor maybe 1 would have been enough?
We are sorry you didn't like what we do, but it appeals to the majority as the other 80 dinners on Sunday lunch left happy. As we have a small fresh menu and don't cram it with vegetarian items as 99 percent of our customers are not.
Having spoken to the staff we have your payment experience a little different.
