“Ideal Watering-hole”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

This is a proper pub with an imaginative menu, excellent food at sensible prices without being "gastro". The beer was excellent too. The children were well catered for and enjoyed it. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and attentive. The pub has back and front bars as well as a dining area so that drinkers still have their place. Would definitely recommend to anyone, will go again when passing that way.

My girlfriend and I dropped by the Horseshoe Inn last weekend and had such a warm welcome, the food was great and the hospitality second to none.

“Swimming in grease”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Nice welcoming pub with good selection of ales. Food reasonably priced but too a long time to come out. Ordered the 'sizzling Cajun chicken' which was a huge portion and literally came out sizzling. The chicken was nice but the bottom of the dish was swimming in grease which made the whole dish unpalatable. They had also run out of many of the dishes leaving a very limited choice.

Hello Jojones ,

Thank you so much for leaving the review . I am extremely sorry that the "Sizzler" platter base was greasy , in fairness we don't add any oil or fat to the chicken however perhaps we should have removed some of the natural chicken fat before serving - many apologies. On a positive note I am glad that the dish was a generous portion and that it was "sizzling hot!" We cook our food freshly and the dish is home seasoned and oven cooked from raw unlike many pubs who rely purely on fat fryers & microwaves , this of course does increase the "wait time" - however again I apologize for the delay . Regarding choice I apologize that it appeared limited - yes we do run out of some dishes sometimes as most restaurants do - again mainly as a consequence of cooking the food from fresh rather than removing from a freezer!

“Great food, value and service.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Stopped in Shipston at the george Hotel, which was a welcoming clean hotel. Out the back of the george and across the street we found this warm cosy pub that served great food at a reasonable price. The night we ate they had a folk group playing in the bar. Drinks were at a competitive price too and good.
