We used to go to this pub many years ago, when we lived in Hampshire,and were hoping it was as good as we remembered. It was a Monday evening and there were lots of tables already booked at 6.00 p.m. ! We had a delicious meal. Both a main course and dessert.It wasn't nice enough to eat outside. The place... More

I love the food here but on the last two visits I have received poor service so sadly won't be returning.

We visited last night with some friends and our 13 year old. So glad we did as the food was amazing - all of us enjoyed it. The service was fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful. Look forward to visiting again one day.

We've eaten many times at The Shoe, and always had good food. We've normally been for lunch. On this occasion, we had family visitors and decided to go for an early supper. As ever the food was great, but I'm afraid the service was very poor. It might have been the fact that we were in a table out of... More

This was our late lunch stop on our country walk and after 5 miles we were rather thirsty and very hungry. They accommodated us although we were an hour late (booking recommended). The ham and cheese ploughman had fantastic bread (which they sell). Whilst the ingredients were very good (with the exception of the pickle which was felt to be... More

We stopped off whilst walking the South Downs for a hearty lunch to fuel the rest of our journey. It was a hot Saturday afternoon and the place was bursting at the seems. We were lucky enough to get a table in the garden near the stream. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere despite the bustle of a busy pub.... More
