Had a very enjoyable meal on Saturday night with friends, food and atmosphere was very good but the thing that helped make the evening was the friendly smile of the waitress Grace - she just couldn't be more attentive!

Every time I come here, the staff make me so welcome, Izzy & Sarah on the bar are so polite and helpful and have some brilliant stories of the ancient pub!! The food always comes in huge portions (don't worry they do small portions too!!) and is never short of the mark. Last time I was there Kathryn recommended the... More

I have visited The Four Horseshoes on many occasions and the food and service has always been excellent. This occasion, my youngest daughter's 16th birthday, was no different. The friendly welcome from Emma as we arrived, set the tone of the evening. Nothing was too much trouble, as she explained what was on offer and recommended dishes. The special of... More

...ok not quite, but obviously an ancient pub which won't disappoint on beams and general antiquity. The decor could do with a bit of an update (and I don't mean the beams need painting) lots of old pubs have been improved recently, then again, some people might like this untouched, un-doctored look. There are some strange display cabinets of jewellry... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such lovely comments, they are always appreciated by the team! You'll have to try and fit in Chef's homemade sticky toffee pudding next time, it's ever so naughty but totally worth it! Hope to see you soon! More

Good food - perfectly cooked steak and a tasty pie. Child and dog friendly. Lovely, helpful staff. Chocolate brownie is a high point too!

I thought I would enjoy my visit to the Four Horseshoes, as it looked like a beautiful old pub; but I was sadly disappointed not by the ambience but by the quality of the food. We had to wait quite a time before our food arrived, then when it did we were all very disappointed by the quality and presentation.... More

Quaint village pub with friendly and attentive staff. Lots of tables and pleasant, cosy bar area with open fire. Large car park, dogs welcome in bar and a covered smoking area at rear. We didn't eat in the evening because we were visiting friends but all the meals looked delicious with generous portions. The room was clean and keenly priced... More
