This is a very good place to come to for atmosphere and sound food. The roast meals were all £15 and came with a Yorkshire pudding and a good choice of vegetables. Having arrived at 6 pm we were told that they had run out of beef ( they served lunch to 9pm) Although disappointed we then chose lamb. Expectations were high following the reviews but the lamb disappointed. There was no choice of how well cooked it could be and the amount served was also very small. It proved to be very over cooked and not of a high quality. It could be that they were running out of this as well so cut back on portions. 15 mins later new customers were told that there was no beef or lamb.
Staff were great but for £15 and number one on Tripadvisor I expected better.

Both my friend and I are very fussy eaters! However, we found food haven at the Horseshoes! Staff were very informative about their new menu and we settled for their Wild Boar Burger! It was soooo good. I recommend sitting in the restaurant. Atmosphere is perfect. Thank you very much. I will be returning!

Good food and atmosphere,but for the price paid I was shocked to see the staff did not pay attention to a group of regulars using E-cigs. Shame at it ruined the mood of the evening

Warm atmosphere, good food, friendly staff. A lovely place to eat or just hang out.
Some locals take over the bar and can be quite loud but are generally friendly and just having a good time too.
Dog friendly.

Great bar and excellent food, highly recommended. You need to book at the weekend but should be OK mid week.
