We went as a group of friends tonight. Good range of food, well cooked to order and friendly staff. Relaxed feel to the pub. Very happy to go again.

Stayed here overnight as we were attending a wedding next door. Booking was easy, I then called the day before to check the check in time as we wanted to get ready there. We were asked what check in time we wanted which was great!! We were welcomed early in the day and shown to our lovely room. Rustic and traditional. We had drinks in the bar and breakfast the following morning all of which were faultless. Real gem of a find, we'll definitely be going back.

We often take guests for an evening meal at this attractive venue, with a garden, log fires in the winter, warm welcome and choice of seating areas for dining. When we first went in 2011 we were excited by the imaginative menu, use of local produce and a good range of choices including vegetarian options. Our most recent visit (with a guest) was on the evening of what had been a very busy Saturday lunch service. We were underwhelmed by the menu (which in most part, bar one or two alterations, has not changed for many months) and failed to find something which was different and appealed so stuck to the tried and tested choices. Starters which promised hunks of bread did indeed provide hunks of bread but they were white, bland, drying out and of basic supermarket quality. Those with toast were served with white sliced bread toast. The butter, which has been one of our favourites there, was not the usual pale & creamy tasty offering but yellow and melting. The main course of pork belly with cider gravy, wholegrain mustard mash and veg was very tasty and well done but the crackling was inedible. The fish pie, although very hot, lacked presentation and looked as though someone had been sampling it before bringing it to the table. The fish option was satisfactory but accompanied by the aforesaid white bread. We did not attempt desserts. The food and menu are still much better than the average pub but not as good as it used to be at the Three Horseshoes. Staff seemed exhausted and, whilst polite, could barely manage a smile. We were asked if everything was ok by someone who whisked by so fast they didn't stop to even hear the first word of the reply. Sadly we are going to be looking for an alternative place to take guests because the unpredictability of whether we will have a great meal (which we undoubtedly have had here in the past) or a mediocre one is not a risk we want to take again.

We had eaten at the Three Horseshoes a couple of years ago and being back in the area on sunny evening decided to retrace our journey along the narrow lanes. Well worth the effort. Made to feel very welcome and an excellent two course dinner including wine for around £55. Beams and old settles and a wood fire to take the chill off the later evening.Can strongly recommend this inn for its food and maybe one day we will get to stay here as well
