Third visit to The Horseshoes and possibly the best one yet. Food is insanely good. Beautifully presented and tasted just incredible. The decor is beautiful and the atmosphere is relaxed. Service as ever was spot on. Attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Extremely good value for money considering the outstanding quality of food served. I literally cannot say enough good things about this place :-)

Very good service. Starter was excellent. One main meal excellent, the other main meal was disappointing but once informed the staff they apologised and a slight reduction in price was made. Overall slightly over priced menu as basically it is a restaurant in a public house. Having said these comments we did enjoy our evening and would recommend.

Fantastic meal at the Horseshoes; the beer battered hake takes ‘fish and chips’ to a whole new level. Service was excellent as always and the atmosphere was perfection, even on such a rainy day. All in all a fantastic lunch time meal, definitely our favourite of the Berkeley Inns sites.

Four of us enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast dinner but we did have to ask for extra gravy.

Food is always excellent, along with good service. A little pricey for the drinks though. Have been a good few times now and will definitely come again. Bridget Brown

It was a shame that our guests had to ask at least three times for red wine that you did not have in stock as it was still on the wine menu and had not been deleted as you had run out or not purchased.

Hello Tom, Thank you for the feedback. We are in the process of updating our Wine list, which will hopefully offer a new range of reds for you to try. But we understand that this can be inconvenient for our guests and we will be resolving the issue as promptly as possible. Kind regards, the Horseshoes Team.

Myself and my partner came for a meal as we had heard a lot about your restaurant and we wanted to try for ourselves but we were disappointed unfortunately. We both had looked online at the menus you had to offer and were excited at what we read only to be disappointed when we read the menu that was given to us on the day as it matched nothing we had read online. The steak my partner had was cooked how he asked but unfortunately was covered in sauce so all he could taste was the sauce and then to be given more sauce on the side? The service was on the slow side and wasn’t discreet at all, with one serve actually standing in front of our table to see if we’d finished eating when we hadn’t for them to then walk away. We aren’t the kind of people to complain but Unfortunately we left disappointed and wanted to bring this to your attention.

Hello Lucy, thank you for your feedback and we shall do everything possible to ensure a better experience for our customers in the future. We have been making a few changes with our website which should hopefully make what we offer clearer. Our menu's do tend to change regularly to maintain a variety, but we understand that this can be misleading. Hopefully we can impress you with our changes on a future visit. Kind regards, the Horseshoes Team.

On arrival we received a very warm, friendly welcome and the service continued in this way. All the staff were appropriately attentive, polite and helpful. The menu was full of superb choices. The 4 of us could have enjoyed any of the dishes offered. The food looked inviting and tasted delicious and the wine reasonably priced. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The ambience was good, with the doors open and looking out onto a pleasant evening. We all said we would return. An excellent evening. Thank you!

I thought this was another excellent meal. My feedback for improvements would be to have greater gaps between courses and my Roquefort sauce was very bland
