The other half and myself decided to pop in here on the off chance that we could get a table. We were greeted by smiling faces and seated straight away. There is a fair bit to choose from on the menu but, I decided on the lasagne with chips and peas. I didn't have to wait long and it was...

We had a table booked for four on Saturday evening, not having been before. Whilst there were two or three behind the bar and they were not packed out, it took an age to get served, customers were served in a random manner rather than the staff keeping an eye on who was first. Although the food was well prepared...

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to us. The Saturday evening that you visited was a very busy one, and I can only apologise that you had to wait to be served at the bar. We always try to keep an eye on who is next to be served, but, as we are only human, we do make mistakes. We...

Lovely old building - comfortable well-appointed bedrooms, - excellent food, - friendly,helpful and efficient staff. We really couldn't find any faults ,though you do have to remember that when it was built people may have been shorter as there are many low beams downstairs. Ducking if you are over 5ft 6ins just adds to the experience! We will definitely return...

Food was fresh, well prepared, well cooked and excellent service Easy to find and plenty of parking, character period building. Warm welcome, lovely atmosphere - if you are tall mind your head on low beams. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite Highly recommend this lovely venue.

Really great meal today at the Four Horseshoes. The staff were lovely and on arrival we were quickly settled at our table and our order taken.  The carvery was superb and hats off to the chef as the roast beef was cooked perfectly.  A huge choice of deserts however on balance I think the sticky toffee pudding won with our...

We've recently moved to this area and are so pleased this pub is our local! Food full of flavour and served by very friendly courteous staff as well as a comfy bar area. The whole place is full of character and charm. Tom has made us very welcome and we will certainly be regular visitors to Four Horseshoes.

Lovely meals. Especially the Sunday carvery, but you must book for Sunday as they get so busy. The fish and chips are big. Liver and bacon was enjoyed. They are a hotel as well. Didnt stay as we are local but rooms look good from outside !

Decided to meet up for a family lunch here which was mediocre to say the least, the first two beers ordered were not very pleasant, so we ordered two more of a different variety, we were unable to drink these so ended up with cider which was ok. The food was reasonable but nothing to give it a wow factor...

The carvery was excellent yesterday. We had a fabulous meal. Compliments to the chef and the staff were all lovely. This is definitely my favourite restaurant for food and for the place itself. I have been several times as live not too far away and the food has always been excellent. The menu is very good with lots of choice.

Superb service, ambience, food. Highly recommend to all, but please make sure you book as you could be disappointed if you can't get in. A very mixed menu so something for everyone and the option of smaller portions is brilliant. Staff are polite and really 'on the ball'. Not expensive for the quality you get. Portions are big and well...
