I have been to The Horseshoes a number of times and have always been fairly pleased with the meal. We dropped in over the bank holiday weekend on the off chance that they would have a table available for four, and they did. We ordered, there were a few things on the menu that they had sold out of. The... More

Table for 730 and we left at 9 by which time it was very quiet with just a few people lingering. Had 2 large groups when we arrived which were completing their... More

I came here to meet my boyfriends parents and sister for the first time. It was a beautiful sunny day and the outdoor seating area near the horse riding school made for a nice relaxing setting for a somewhat nerve wrecking situation. The food was nice although my roast pork didn't come with crackling as stated but everyone else seemed... More

A meeting here of AMOC and we had never been before. Loads of parking and the menu is very good. Excellent selection. The rib eye steak was cooked to perfection which even steak restaurants don't achieve. The fried onions and mixed salad instead of chips was excellent. The wagu burger was also surperb. A fab meal and good evening was... More

I ate my whole meal before my drink came and was then given a child's menu instead of dessert menu. The roast dinner was delicious though.

Thank you to the kind attentive staff that made my birthday so special. I had a fillet steak done to perfection. It was one of the best steaks I had in a long time. Following that I was surprised with a dessert and a song!

Called in with friends who knew this pub from way back. Very nice clean smart building which has been sympathetically refurbished to a high standard. Nice selection of real ales and a proper well researched wine list also nice bar nibbles were available. The smoked spicy nuts were just delicious. The menu was very typical and had most of the...

We visited here last Sunday for a family birthday and we all decided to have the Sunday Roast. There were 4 of us and we all chose a different one. The venue is deceiving and its very large inside with masses of lovely outdoor seating in the sun. We did book, but think we might not have had to. The... More

Thank you for your review. I am delighted to read you have enjoyed our Sunday Roasts, they are a favourite and they are all homemade. It is also great to know the drinks were enjoyed too.
