Description: The Three Horseshoes is a modern interpretation of an original public house. It is a warm and friendly meeting place, serving great food and drink. We combine comfort and style with a relaxed atmosphere in a building that dates back, in part, to as early as 1520 AD. We serve Traditional pub food with an exciting twist.

“great pub, friendly atmosphere and awesome live music.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The food here is of a very good standard and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is how you would expect a country pub to be... Warm and inviting. Although I have never had the Sunday roast, I assume it to be very good. The bar staff are helpful and cheerful and enjoy a good quantity of banter.

“Lovely food and welcoming staff”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

First visit here after a walk in surrounding countryside. Warm and cosy, clean and well presented pub. Great food from a wide ranging menu. Children were catered for and loved the little goody bag. Will return soon.

“warm welcome”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

The food was excellent and so much attention paid to small details made lunch a pleasure for us all, the children were made so welcome with a goodie bag, nothing was too much trouble. Good food and good value.

“Make sure you go and eat here”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Lovely village pub
Staff are great and the food is brilliant
They do different menus for different nights of the wk...we went on a Wednesday ...we were a party of 14 and it was 2 mains for £10 and 2 starters for £10.... I'd say that was a bargain
The food was lovely and my starter...which was mushroom in creamy garlic sauce on bruschetta was the nicest I've ever had...I think they also do steak nights and fish n chip nights
Sunday roast is also worth a visit as well
