Ironically I saw the same sentence when looking this restaurant up for a review, honestly, there were four adults and we have all eaten at lots of places, and it truly was the best Roast Dinner we all had tasted, ever! The attention to detail, quality and the different process the Chef employs on all the different dishes is really... More

We're from Rochester and there is a tragic lack of decent pubs in our area. So, despite the fact that this place is around 20 - 30 mins drive away from us, it's definitely worth the effort. We had a Fish sharing platter to start and all was excellent, great smoked salmon, crab pate, some nice tender squid and various... More

I absolutely love this place and are here on a regular basis. My boyfriend lives locally and we enjoy evenings at the horseshoes by the fire! It is equally as lovely in the summer sitting out the front. The menu includes a wide range of choices and there really is something for everyone. We attended the Horseshoes for dinner on... More

Family meal. Food was ok but the evening as ,et down by the service. Not that the staff were not doing anything, they were rushed off their feet. Appeared they were missing one or two colleagues. Sat down on time, had to wait 20 mins for our order to be taken, then another 30 mins wait for the food. No... More

Thank you for your review. I can only apologise for your experience with us. I personally was on shift on this evening and we did not predict the number of guests that came to eat with us, which in turn slowed the service down more than we would like. We then had the issue with our soda pump, which took... More

I took my mum here yesterday for her 75th birthday. She loves the place. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. We both had the Steak pie and mash and it was delicious. The price was very reasonable too. I can highly recommend it there and will be going back very soon.
