I booked this meal for my mother’s 60th birthday on the 12th January at 16:00, and although we had a great time, there was a few things regarding the service that was very disappointing. First of all the Lady Manager was rude when we asked to decorate the table. I was informed that we could arrive early to decorate the table but she informed me that we could not as the table was not ready and I should never of been told this. Secondly she was dictating what we could or could not do in terms of decoration. We was a party of 16 and although the food was nice we was only given two small bowls of cauliflower cheese! When we asked for more we was informed that there was no more left! Later in the evening we also overheard the same manageress talking to one of your bar staff stating that she hopes we do not get up and dance! This is very disappointing and unfortunately my perception of The Horseshoes is now tainted. We spent a considerable amount of money at your restaurant and it’s a shame that I have such a negative perception of your restaurant. Regards Joanne

Excellent food and service. We were however somewhat dismayed to find that no decaffeinated coffee/tea was available to round off the visit.

The 2nd time we’ve been and was really enjoyable The staff were very attentive and friendly the food was excellent a little disappointed with only 3 bitters to pick from and no Jaipur available the Cock Inn at Mugginton has more beer choice Also thought the amount of crackers on the cheeseboard with 4 cheeses wasn’t enough however when I requested more crackers they gave us more straight away which was good these are only minor issues really it didn’t take away from our overall pleasure of our evening we will be back again in the future we’ll done

Our waitress was great, but particularly amazing with the kids, so patient and kind to them. Throughout the evening she was making jokes with them, and listening to their jokes, it made a 'grown up' evening much more fun for everyone. Thank you so much

Superb food, beautifully presented.Good sized portions. Would definitely recommend.Staff were very polite and understanding when members of our party were late (they’d got lost and gone to the wrong pub).
