We had an old friends 'get together' dinner here recently. There were a good selection of ales on offer which is always a good start. The menu is a mixture of good pub standards and a varied specials board. Two of our party had the...More

This used to be a good venue but recently there has been a significant drop in quality of the food and there has been an increase in prices. We now eat elsewhere even though it means we have to drive, it's worth it for better...More

We are very sorry you feel this way. The ONLY price increase in recent times has been our Sunday large plate carvery. First increase in over 3 years. A smaller plate (standard size) is available at £10.50. The quality of our food should remain consistently...More

If you are near by, I would certainly stop here for food. We had a lovely lunch, from sandwiches to burgers, fish and chips and dessert all round. Just what was needed.

We had a great meal here for our Christmas gathering. Fantastic food. Great wine. I only wish it was in walking distance! For a small restaurant there was plenty of menu choice.

Just curious about the cheese sauce that was brown & seemed to Melissa to be peppercorn sauce. Is it a pre-prepared sauce or made in-house from raw ingredients ? Thanks

To reassure you all of our sauces are made to order from real ingredients no pre made, processed or packaged products are used in our kitchen. In the case of the blue cheese sauce we make it using homemade veal Demi glacé... More

Set in the picturesque village of Offord D'Arcy between St Neots and Godmanchester, The Horseshoe Inn Restaurant successfully combines an old village pub and a gourmet restaurant. Known locally as The 'Shoe, the 395-year old period building has been extended but retains much of the original features and charm. The bars offer both low ceilings and rustic style, with exposed beams with Inglenook fireplaces. The frequently changing menu allows you to experience internationally influenced dishes such as Thai green curry or fillet steak with potato rosti, spinach and a blue cheese and brandy sauce. Dishes often carry a wine recommendation on the menu to help you choose the right selection. For an average of $25 per person, you can enjoy a three-course meal here, and should you choose something you don't like, they will offer you another choice! The Horseshoe appears to be lucky after all!
