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.

Visited with friends at short notice on a Saturday night because pub we had booked for dinner had been flooded during a storm. Pub looks very pretty from the outside. Food was standard pub fare, but well cooked and very tasty. Unfortunately, the whole place...smelt of frying and our clothes reeked of it when we left. There were some people sitting outside who allowed their very young children to run amok inside the pub , screaming and shouting (and vaping!), at 9.00-10.00 at night and the staff seemed completely oblivious. We had a nice evening because we were with friends, but it isn't a pub we are likely to be re-visiting.More

By all accounts excellent. The buffet food was excellent and well varied. The staff where brilliant and couldn't do enough to help. We wanted a nice send off for our loved one and it was perfect. Would highly recommend this public house for its location,...food and excellent service. Don't take my word for it. Give it a try 😉 😏More

Pre-booked a table two days before. Upon arrival there was no table available. Staff kept us waiting 15 mins at the bar for drinks and eventually pulled a couple of tables together to accommodate. The food was alright. I was over charged by £15, which...I only realised when I got home. But that wasn't the worst of it. After our meal my husband and son tried to play a game of pool, and were heckled and abused by a couple of local muppets who were eagerly looking to start a fight. The landlord did nothing and we had to abandon the pool game and leave! Definitely not a family friendly pub meal experience. We will never visit again.More

I took my family here for a meal and drink. On arrival the pre-booked time slot meant nothing, and had to wait around as the staff cobbled together seating for six. The meals were alright. The thing that caused us to leave on mass, was...the abusive, violent regulars, who heckled and made their best attempts to start a fight. Never, anywhere in the Uk or abroad have I experienced this kind of aggressive behaviour! Unbelieveable, worst was the spineless landlord who asked us not to aggrevate these muppets. My advise, in the strongest possible terms, is to avoid this establishment as it is not family friendly!More

Had the best experience at the loveliest, dog friendly pub earlier! Gorgeous food and a lovely sofa in front of the fire that the lovely manager, Michael, kept topping up for us. We spent about 5 hours there in total, it was so cosy! Our...waitress, Coleen, was so lovely too - even bringing the extra ketchup when we needed it! Will definitely return soon.More

Lovely little pub, we visited recently for my sisters birthday at lunch time, it was very quiet when we got there but still a lovely setting. The menu that day was unfortunately very limited due to deliveries not showing up but the food we did...have was lovely, well presented, tasted delicious and served nice and hot! Will definitely return. Thank you to the lovely barmaid/waitress!More

So glad to be able to visit this pub once more after Covid. It has a smashing feel to the place in keeping with its traditions. The new management team made us feel very welcome. One word of warning, they were short on one or...two menu items so if you have specific requirements a phone call before visiting may be worthwhileMore

It's so nice to find a family run business who understand that eating out with children can be difficult. I reserved for 15 people and 2 children last Saturday for my daughters 18th. we were greeted with a warm welcome. Orders were taken. The kitchen...staff made sure all starters and main courses came out together. Food portions were good and the food quality was ok. As the mains came out my daughters youngest decided that he was hungry too and started crying. The landlady came and sat with us and bottle fed him so my daughter could continue eating. After the meal she brought out games for the kids to play, whilst all the time making sure everyone was ok. The staff went above and beyond and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning.More

Went out on a Sunday for a family members birthday and let’s just say our meal was atrocious, we got there’s at around 3 and had booked a table, for 8, yet when we got to the table it was only set for 7 so...we all had to squeeze round the table, waited ages for our drinks, of which we ordered a jug of water which came ages after the other drinks, starters were ok, I had the chicken goujons which leads to my current problem, I’ve woken up the next morning with horrible food poisoning, and my main was vegetarian so there was no way it could be that. I had the halloumi for my main which was bland and tasteless so I barely even ate it, we then waited forever to get more drinks and dessert menu etc. The place just seems severely disorganised and the staff don’t seem to care about their customers, they just care about getting bums in seats at tables and money in the cash drawer. Would not recommend to eat here at all, due to the terrible service and the food poisoning that followed ( the food poisoning could not be due to any thing else but the food from here as that’s all I ate that day)More

Last Sunday my partner and I enjoyed a long country walk and decided to visit the Three Horseshoes on a spur-of-the-moment. I was reluctant as I'd booked for a table of 15 a few Christmases ago with my family and was totally embarrassed by the...incredibly slow service. I decided to give it another go. The first thing we noticed was the amount of empty tables piled with dirty plates. I went to order a drink and was met with dirty wine glasses (all of them) hanging above the bar. If you can't wash and dry them properly, don't display them. While waiting for our meal, we witnessed an upset waitress threatening to leave. Frankly, I don't blame her, it was a Sunday afternoon at a pub that boasts of its Sunday Roasts and there were 2 waiting staff that I could see of. And then our meals were delivered by a stressed, indignant woman who I'm sure was management as she had jangly keys. We asked for cutlery and she gave us some from another table! The food was brought out quickly but in terms of quality was not worth the money. Stop bringing your cutlery out in pots. Clean and set your tables. Don't walk past a table that's covered in dirty plates and please, if you're a manager, don't make your diners feel as though they are an inconvenience to you. Employ more staff for a Sunday and keep them happy and motivated. Or if you'd like to keep all of these faults.... Charge less.More
