There seems to be more than enough great current reviews of the food & drink at the Five Horseshoes. Needless to say that our visit a few days ago was a delightful interlude as we passed through the Chilterns. Lovely food & perfect Brakspears. Ahh!
Perhaps one other word though about the Pub and Russell’s Water Common. I find myself reminiscing that it must be more than thirty years since we first visited this fantastic spot. In the intervening years little has changed to spoil the Pub and the area. The Pub sits atop the Chiltern escarpment not more than 15 mins drive from Henley and a similar distance from J5 of the M40 yet is tranquil and next to the best open English heathland I know. Stunning views all around. I hope the Five Horseshoes will continue to prosper and will be appreciated by future generations. A true classic English pub.
