Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Called here unexpectedly as we were staying nearby. What a beautiful place. Staff were very welcoming and the food was amazing. Can highly recommend the Crispy Thai beef salad and the Pork Fourways. Delicious.

We came here for my husbands 30th and wow. My husband has recently been diagnosed with celiac disease and cannot eat anything with gluten in. This menu is amazing for people like him. They cater all dishes around his needs, anything he chose he could...have it as gluten free even his favourite deserts. There was 12 of us and there wasn’t a huge wait and the food was amazing. Beautiful pub, beautiful food and amazing staff. Thanks all for making my husband 30th enjoyable.More

What can I say - if I could give 10 stars then I would I can’t fault anything about the food or the service, both were equally impressive. The most important thing is the staff knew what they were talking about and no problem is...too much for them . Keep up the good effortMore

This afternoon at the bar a belligerent, aggressive and bullish member of staff shouted at me "I don't give a f**k what you think". Why? Because I told him the bread pudding and the waffle were chewy and stodgy and not worth £7 each. I...don't know and don't actually care who he was but I wonder who or what he thinks he is. Certainly not a good business man. If he's the manager then he should be ashamed of himself and if someone else is the manager then they should get rid of him - he's intimidating and a liability. But perhaps nobody else will give a f**k what I think! What a sad world it is sometimes.More

Seven of us had a fantastic meal again at the horseshoes every time we go good quality freshly cooked food. Never have we had a poor meal always a very high standard, friendly staff nothing is to much trouble, ambience is perfect nice pleasant atmosphere...would highly recommend wide variety of food. Perfect outside sitting and dining area for those who prefer alfresco, and interior to a high standard with tables to accommodate all size of groups or for those who are having a couples night out.More

A wonderful gem. Rather non descript from the road ( as it is a listed property ) but with a lovely garden and terrace. The interior is warm and welcoming. One of the loveliest decorated pubs I have visited. Leather sofas. Light filled areas. Clean...and friendly. Dog friendly too. We had brisket of beef and chicken milanese for a late lunch. Absolutely delicious. Great value. Super service. So glad we stopped by.More

Unfortunately had to eat here a 2nd time due to a work meal out. First time was 5 years ago so was hoping things had improved. My first review on here had an untruthful and aggressive response from the manager/owner - will wait to see...if a similar response is received. Very over priced for basic food served. Poor service.More

Expensive food and drink. Disappointingly small portions for all meals and sides. Food was tasty, just not enough for the price.
