Dropped by today for lunch. I had oxcheek with root vegetables and my husband had prawn linguine. Fantastic food and wonderful service. Tucked away in Donnington village - a very pretty village just outside Newbury. What a find! Will definitely be going there again!

Had a lovely fish finger sandwich and a pint for lunch with my husband. The menus a bit limited and slightly in the pricey side hence the 3. Worth a visit for a drink though if you are in the area.

Nice location in the quiet Newbury "suburb" of Donnington, near the castle. Outside seating next to the river Lambourn opposite the pub across the (very quiet) road. Nice building inside, too. Service was very friendly. The food is essentially pub grub, mine was hot and...More

We went for a mid-week family lunch at the Three Horseshoes based on its excellent TripAdvisor reviews. The garden was a little disappointing as it's really just a corner of the car park, but it is a pretty setting by the river with a lovely...More
