Love visiting The Horseshoes. Recently visited and dined outside due to Covid restrictions but still thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food and service were excellent and can't wait to visit again soon know that we are able to dine inside. Highly recommended.

In an awning outside the main building wasn’t the best way to celebrate our anniversary, however under the circumstances everything excellent.

Lovely lunch in fabulous garden room. Great service too. Only criticism is you can’t get through on the phone so difficult to discuss booking if necessary. Please improve.
