Love the place .. Sat in cwtch corner by the open log fire. Always a warm friendly welcome, and a varying choice of locally brewed cider. Recommend this beautifully set inn to anyone as we have come here for a number of years and always had good food and alcohol and atmosphere. Look forward to going back!

First time we have taken 84 year old family member out since lockdown began due to her being very nervous. No problems here, very well organised. Very hard working staff member managed to organise booked persons plus numerous call inn people out in the sunshince. He was polite and all were happy to comply with him . We had three excellent meals, no complaints at all, freshly cooked and tasty. I don't usually order steak as in many placed it is tasteless, this was well seasonedas, tender and tasty. Happy to recommend on all counts, good food, cold beers and covid safety measures all in place. Thank yoy

Excellent as always .... I just love that homity pie. Ambience docked a point .... but only because of the stringent COVID19 precautions ... which should probably receive loads of plus points somewhere

This was our 2nd visit since lockdown and it did not disappoint, the people with us were also impressed and said they would be returning. The service was superb with the waiters complying with the current safety requirements, the menu was good and the portions very generous, all told a thoroughly pleasant lunchtime meal. Many thanks to all the staff in these difficult times. Terry Dunn

Very tasty food and excellence service. I have only eaten out a few times recently and this pub delivered best in class in terms of their response to the Coronavirus. Pre-packaged cutlery, one way systems, sanitizer, visors worn by staff, removal of menus and customers directed to pay via their mobile phone instead. Fantastic and would highly recommend!

I think the Horseshoe Inn has been one of the most organised pub that we have been to and the little touch with the cutlery being sealed is a very good idea. Just a shame we couldn’t get in there the following day for food.

Everything was excellent. Could only give a rating of 8 for ambiance because of the restrictions place on pub due to Covid, so not the usual 'vibe' in the bar. However everything else was great.

Very nice food. Good service and nice surroundings. I had the Hake which was cooked beautifully my only criticism was the pre salted potatoes: not everyone likes or can tolerate salt. Hubby loved the curry, a decent one as pubs don't always do a curry well.

We found the whole experience lovely considering it was the first time we'd been to a restaurant in several months and we were all glad that we came here. The only downside was the desserts as the crumble and the bread and butter pudding were ordered but they were far too hot to be enjoyed. Unfortunately we'd finished the other desserts and the others were still too hot to eat so my partner and my dad ended up with very burnt tongues as we were waiting a while for it to cool down. The only other issue was that the chairs were quite uncomfortable, but other than that, everything was amazing and it was a very enjoyable evening and we'll be visiting again.

Excellent Lunch, very pleasant Pub and friendly helpful staff. I was very confident in using the premises as the Covid19 control was fully observed. This was our first meal out since the lockdown and although we have used the Pub before we did so this time on the recommendation of friends. We will certainly go there again.

The staff were really lovely, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We had a problem with the front and back doors being open due to the safety restrictions, causing a cold draft. But the staff fixed the problem straight away. The food was lovely, only complaint was that the chips were quite salty for my taste. I couldn’t give them to my young son as he isn’t allowed excess salt in his diet. Luckily there was plenty of veg and meat for him to eat so we were all happy. Overall lovely experience.
