“Lovely dinner and friendly service”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Went to the Three Horseshoes on a Groupon dinner voucher, 2 starters and two Rib eye steaks dinner, food was great and staff were very friendly and helpful. We were being seated in the conservatory which was warm, bright and the view was great on a sunny afternoon. We kept changing the items that came with the steak dinner and our waitress did her utmost to accommodate our request whenever she can. Starters were amazing, delicious and nicely presented, steaks were cooked to our liking, my partner is normally very fussy over how the steak is cooked but the chef had cooked it perfectly. We had a dessert and a brandy after dinner, dessert was lovely but the brandy was ok. We first asked for Frangelico, they didn't have any, so we asked for Amaretto or Dissarano, and we were told there weren't any either. We then asked for Remy Martin or Courvoisier Brandy, again we were told there aren't any so we finally settle on a glass of bandy. However when it arrived, it didn't taste of any high quality brandy which was a bit disappointed.

The only negative thing about the restaurant is the variety of liquors available in the bar seemed a bit limited as we asked for few different types of drinks and they weren’t available. Overall, the restaurant has its unique character and we will definitely return again and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
