“I am being generous!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Perhaps I'm wrong, so do go along and give your impressions. At Sunday lunch I found that the starters were distinctly average (soup and charcuterie) but the (home-made?) pâté looked a little more interesting. The main course fell down in terms of both quality and quantity: I would have been disappointed with myself if I had cooked and served it. The vegetables: were satisfactory but the meat was overcooked and not tasty (IMHO) and there were just two fairly small slices of it. The Good Old Boy, on the other hand, was reasonably priced and in good condition.
Perhaps we were just unlucky so do go along and add your favourable impressions with the result that I may one day return.

Hi there, thank you for your comment . However the items that you have reviewed were not present on our menu on Sunday? Perhaps you have the wrong three horseshoes?

“Very good food and service”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

2nd work lunch here since it was refurbished, and both times the food has been very good and the service excellent.

Even though the lady behind the bar was alone on this occasion she coped very well, without us really noticing any delay.

“Good food, lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Myself and a friend visited here on our way through Newbury after a weekend away. It was a little hard to find as it is only signposted one way from the main road - but it was worth it.
The staff were friendly and welcoming.
The menu was interesting and had a good range on it.
The food was really tasty and well presented - although the roast could have been a little bigger.
The atmosphere was lovely with an open fire and nicely decorated in the main bar area.
I would definitely recommend this place to others.

“Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Took my sister and mother for a birthday meal yesterday at the newly refurbished Three Horseshoes at Donnington, Newbury. They offered a varied menu at great prices, the service was excellent and when the food arrived it was piping hot and delicious, we had a mixture of meals and all of us were very pleased with our choices.
Would highly recommend a visit :)
