My wife and I have just had a so called Christmas meal here, and were very disappointed. the Turkey and roast potatoes were OK but no sausage! the stuffing was absolutely terrible. looks as though it had been sliced off a roll, and was nothing but sludge! the Christmas pudding was very cheap and tasteless, I've had much better from...

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your overall experience with us, our chef's would have been more than happy to include a sausage on your meal, we just weren't aware that you would have liked one! Our menu states what is included in each meal and we are more than flexible when it comes to all the Christmas trimmings.... More

We went to the Four horseshoes on Saturday evening and I must say that even though they were really busy the food was very good. We all had burgers and they were super tasty as well as the menu being very good value for money. The only constructive criticism I can point out is that this is the second time... More

Went there last night after being recommended. We had called in earlier and booked a table for 4, being a Friday night. Up until we ordered the food everything was going well, a really nice old pub. As we had booked the table for 8.00 pm,we got there a little earlier and we were shown to our table before 8.00... More

We’re in the Eye area for a couple of weeks and found The Four Horseshoes on the second day. We were delighted with the warm welcome, which unreservedly extended to our Newfoundland, Ruby, despite her size. From the first greeting to the warm farewell, everything was great. We appreciated the thoughtful, efficient recommendations and service, the extensive menu choices, and... More

The best pub/inn I've ever visited. Superb architecture in and out, a really cosy, comfortable and atmospheric place to stay. Spent many hours here during a week's holiday in October. Ask for any refreshments that take your fancy at any time of day and the staff will fall over themselves to accommodate you. Lovely Chesterfield sofas to the left just... More

I had the best carvery I've ever had today the atmosphere was lovely the price was extremely reasonable the staff were friendly and attentive the food was to die for loved the parsnips gutted couldn't fit a dessert in. The choice of meats and how they were cooked were exquisite everything was just perfect.

We had an evening meal here recently with a couple of friends who are reasonably local. Nice food, ambience, busy but not so we couldn't hear each other speak. Extensive menu and friendly service. Not absolutely outstanding but a pleasant couple of hours. Not hard to see why it's popular.
