Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staying in West Bay, walked to the 3 horseshoes, been before so knew what to expect. Compliant with all track n trace. Sunday was busy happy to sit outside in lovely garden with dogs. Waitress team were excellent very efficient and friendly. They coped with a grumpy rude customer very politely. The roast was brilliant but deserts we found very overpriced and disappointing, this must be where they make their profit! We returned on a wet Wednesday, 2 excellent flat iron steaks, cooked perfectly Great cheese board, but very poor pavlova also overpriced. Can see why it’s so busy, will return.

We tried to book in advance for BH Monday lunch but all tables inside fully booked. Turned up at chance of getting garden table and we got to be first in queue. Prompt service and wonderful food, really nice (Burger, mussels and 2 large children’s meals). We loved the food so much we decided to return the following day. We arrived at 6.45 and there were a few tables free in garden. We were told there was a wait on food for half an hour and we said that was fine. We sat at a table and 40 minutes later we asked to order a drink. That came 15 minutes later and finally after a few times of asking we ordered our food and 90 minutes later after we had arrived we ate. Our 2 young children as you can imagine were restless as it had gone past 8pm. Given the wait, the food was delicious, truly the best pub food ever. We had some sharing dishes and a platter and the kids meals were high quality and good value. Can only presume they were understaffed on the Tuesday as very different to the BH. Shame as this tarnished our evening albeit the food was delicious.

We’ve been coming here for the last few years and it never disappoints. Having not booked( always necessary) and on the back of a three hour drive home, they managed to fit us in early on Friday. It was full all evening. We just had mains and sweet but brilliant, fillet steak for one and the special, sea bass for the other, then treacle tart and clotted cream. You’re always assured of a warm welcome and great food. Highly recommended.

Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime, was busy but we managed to get a table in the restaurant, dogs allowed too. The coronovirus procedures were being followed in abundance. Hand sanitiser immediately upon arrival, one in one out rule with toilet usage, disposable menus, full table service and one way system in place. We all felt totally safe and very well protected. As for the food, we were blown away with all of our meals. I had mussels and others had veal slider burgers and fish and chips, the food and service was faultless and probably the best we have ever tasted. Thank you for making our visit to you so enjoyable, the best meal of our holiday.

Family get together, warm welcome with covid security well covered. Service started quick, slowed as numbers grew. Share several fish starters, delicious, mussels, and lamb for mains cheese and ice cream was all we could cope with for desserts. A lovely pub noted for a return visit.

We’ve been meaning to go for Sunday lunch for some time but not easy to get in to! Booked 10 days in advance and just got in. BUT so worth it. We shared the starter of salt/pepper squid. Really great textures and taste. More than enough to share before the enormous main Sunday roast We had the pork and the beef. The pork was perfectly cooked. Still moist. Perfect served with THE best crackling. The very slow cooked beef was pink, juicy and tender. Great roasties, the biggest Yorkie I’ve ever seen and a superb individual pot of cauliflower cheese that despite not being my wife’s favourite, was devoured in seconds!! The other veg were extremely varied, nice but too many different ones. ( I’m being v picky). All washed down by a lovely pint of IPA and a well priced decent NZ Pinot Noir. Great service on top, attentive without being over the top, but all covid safe. Well done. Just to say they do a fantastic takeaway of this lunch ( plus other stuff) but for £12-14 each it’s great value.

After previous failed attempts to book a table, when we were finally able to book in, it was easy to see why this pub is so popular. Welcome, food and service were all top class. Squid starters were awesome. Mains of moules/frites and surf and turf were extremely generous and desert was just the job. Great company and too much wine and beer!! Well done all at The Three Horseshoes, you have a very good thing going here.

Visited for a quick family lunch when staying in local area, very COVID-19 friendly, everything was done to make you feel clean and as covid safe as you can so a big tick in that box. Good menu with a wide selection, I ordered a falafel flatbread and was happily accommodated to change my choice of sides (normally fries or a cup of soup) to a side salad that was fresh and crisp. Visited with 2 children (aged 8 & 4) who happily shared a hake goujon sandwich and fries and my husband had a steak flatbread and fries, all very well presented and delicious. Only the kids wanted dessert so ordered a chocolate brownie (the best I’ve EVER tasted!) and an apple crumble which was superb. All in all great food, but I have to say it’s a very busy and obviously popular place to dine, we got lucky booking a lunch table as dinner was fully booked for 3 weeks and they’re only open 12-3 in the daytime but well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

As always the best of Food, Service and Friendliness. The food is really good, if you don’t want a large meal, go for the £5 dishes on the daily menu, they are all like tapas. The best in our opinion is the duck rolls. They are the best ever, even better than in Singapore. Still not had room to try the puddings, maybe one day. Palmers beers are good too.

Sunday lunch today was the stuff of dreams - my husband had the roast beef and my daughter the children’s portion of roast chicken. Both of which were of the highest quality we have had for a very long time. I had the mussels (a gamble on a Sunday) but they too were sublime. All the staff were polite and efficient and their COVID Measures are well placed without robbing you of a normal experience. Can’t wait to go back...

We stopped by on the off chance of an early dinner for our small children, and what a lovely meal it was. The social distancing measures were excellent and we all felt very safe. It was table service so people weren't wandering around and each table deep cleaned between customers. The food was delicious and the waiting staff helpful and friendly. The childrens meals were brought out first which is always very much appreciated. The adult meals were delicious. Thank you very much for a lovely dinner.

Booked a table for a treat during our holiday. Any concern’s about cleanliness, self distancing were not needed. Table’s comfortably placed, disposable menu’s which were disposed off when table was cleared unlike other pub we had visited week before. Service was a little slow, but they were extremely busy, and to be honest we were not in a hurry. Food was delicious, although a few items on the menu were not available. Also part of Eat out to help out, so an added bonus. Would highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Thank you my fellow TripAdvisors for being the reason we stopped here for a late lunch! We shared 4 bar snacks for £20 which was great value: 5 huge, crispy, tasty Korean chicken wings, dirty chips with BBQ pulled pork, whitebait, and salt and pepper squid. There was so much that the 2 of us couldn't finish it (although had we swapped the squid for another portion of wings we'd have made sure we did!). The only downside was that it was our last day in the area and we were too full after our meal to return that evening. Credit to the staff who were friendly yet professional in looking after us and also in having to turn away the many potential diners who called while we were there.

We went on Saturday for lunch, had booked a table for 12 noon and people were waiting outside for it to open, a very good sign. The staff were brilliant, so friendly and attentive. The Dorset Orchard Haze was lovely, crisp fresh and apply cider. We ordered a 4 plate what I call piccy bits. We had a half pint of prawns, filthy chips with pork, cheese and god knows what else (deliciously filthy), mac & cheese balls (I didn't think I would like them but they were like Aranchini balls but with pasta and just delicious) and crispy squid which was perfectly cooked. The food was so good! The pub surroundings are lovely, lots of old books, so really interesting to look at. Overall a really enjoyable first visit but hopefully not our last. I felt a bit bad as service charge was not included (why would a pub...), there was no option to leave a tip on the card machine and we didn't have any cash on us to leave a tip, hopefully a good review will make up for it. Thank you for a lovely lunch!

We came here to meet friends for a Sunday lunch. One of the best roast dinners we’ve had out in a while, well presented, cooked beautifully, good quality food and great service. If in the area again we will return for a Sunday roast!
