“Absolutely fantastic.”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We and another couple have just spent two nights staying at The Three Horseshoes Inn in Dorset, and wow what a fantastic experience. The rooms were truly awesome with fantastic views, large, modern, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The food was top class from start to finish, a delight to eat there. The owners/managers could not be more welcoming and it is also fantastic value for money. Breakfast was also first class and we will definitely be going there again.

Room Tip: Ask for room number 2, if that is not available ask for room 1.

The Three "Shoes" hosted me and my good lady wife last weekend and by the way this is a flamin gem! In fact we were very fortunate too as the weather put pay to a camping adventure and instead brought us here. We loved the room over looking the Egardon Valley and the food , breakfast and a restaurant meal of Rib of Beef was delish! Service great too! Will definitely return, complete value for money. Thanks guys.

A word of caution - get a good sat nav and a decent map when you set off for this pub restaurant in the middle of the back of beyond. But, go there !!! The five of us ate some fantastic food. Home made bread, scallops, Veal Burgers, Chicken, Home Made Fish cakes, Triple cooked chips, veal escapoles with home made gnocchi, home made ice cream - all were terrific. What we liked were the twists to each dish - a home grown herb, something forraged from the local area, the unusual combinations of ingredients. The food reassuringly takes some time to arrive but each dish is spot on. Portions are generous, the staff friendly and helpful (especially with the directions home). The place itself is a pub pure and simple; no fancy interior design schemes here. All the effort goes into the food and long may that continue. Excellent.

We called in here for dinner early on a Friday evening and had a most memorable meal. The chef tries hard to focus on local and seasonal - even to the extent of garden-grown nettle soup and rhubarb icecream. The menu is very imaginative and the dishes arrive beautifully presented. The dining room is quite small, rustic but comfortable and the service is friendly, well-informed and professional. We did not stay overnight but have already recommended friends and business contacts to stay here to experience some truly wonderful food and hospitality in beautiful countryside.

If you are looking for a pub that uses local food cooked expertly in quite an outstanding location with lovely friendly people to look after you, then go no further than this delightful village inn.

They have accommodation which makes for the perfect break in in a stunning location of views, walks and the sea and Bridport within easy reach.
Can't be bettered really!

Set in very rural Dorset this small pub run by Suzanna and Guy (who does the food), will give you a really wonderfully warm welcome and with food to die for. We had lunch of Pate, miniature scotch eggs made from perfectly cooked quails eggs as well as Escargot with cepes all to an accompaniment of what must have been triple cooked homemade chips. The beers are Palmers and the IPA is wonderful.

The evening celebrations were amazing with an incredible 7 course set menu and then later incredibly friendly local people who popped in to greet the new year. Needless to say breakfast was great

All in all an amazing experience - if you are looking for an intimate weekend with great food, great atmosphere and great local walks in the Dorset countryside whatever the weather - you will not do better. Worth seeking out!

Three rather senior citizens - my wife and I plus a female friend (and her border collie) arrived at the Three Horeshoes as quivering wrecks after negotiating the almost impassable lanes in and around Powerstock in order to spend a three-day mini-break in Dorset. We were all immediately transformed back into lively, convivial human beings (except the dog) by the warmth and kindness shown to us by Susie and her husband Karl, who are the embodiment of inspired and inspirational innkeeping. Our spotlessly clean and spacious downstairs rooms overlooked spectacular and breathtaking scenery and the pleasure this afforded was more than matched by the excellence of the food and table service at dinner and breakfast each day. Susie was the epitome of kind concern and helpfulness, whilst Karl excelled himself in preparing a variety of menus which would not be out of place in the very best and most expensive city restaurants. All the staff were similarly attentive and made dining there an absolute delight, even Dale the dog being made to feel especially welcome. We cannot praise the Three Horsehoes and its inimitable hosts Susie and Karl too highly and will most certainly be paying a return visit there in the very near future. Terry O'Brien

Room Tip: Book well in advance - there are only three rooms, all of them excellent but in great demand!
