Called here for lunch whilst in the area. There was a warm welcome from the staff and a warm glow coming from the log burner. The food was lovely and not expensive. The beer as good and so was the service. I would highly recommend...More

Great landlord and staff, cannot fault them. Food is disappointing though. Good pub for a drink but not up to scratch in the restaurant. Sauces are heavily applied and bland. There are better pub restaurants nearby. See my Ellingham review!

The eatery serves hearty meals with style. Well presented, hearty portions and excellent service. There are lots of pretentious places that could learn lessons from the Horseshoes on good cooking and good service with a smile. The interesting menu is well paced, as are the...More
