Lovely food, atmosphere and staff. Reasonably priced too. I didn't want to go anywhere too formal as I was dining alone; The Three Horseshoes had a really nice, a comforting vibe. would go again if in the area

An excellent hotel situated bang in the middle of town, but delightfully quiet and just right for exploring the area. Staff very helpful,food very good. Only minor gripe restaurant In bar area making it noisy with people enjoying themselves.

Called for lunch mid week and whilst the food was acceptable the presentation and quality was average. I had the Cheeseburger which, for nearly £13, was disappointing and certainly looked nothing like the photos on tripadvisor. The chips (frozen fries) were slightly under cooked, the...More
