Very happy!, We arrived and got seated straight away! Drinks were out in no time and didn't have to wait long at all for the food. I'm not a very big eater so when I saw the "small people" option was very happy!. A roast dinner for £7.00. It was a huge portion!! Was super super yummy! My partner had... More

I visited here on a Sunday which was a extremely hot day-23 degrees maximum. We went to sit outside but there was no parsouel so was extremely hot. Fourtunelally for us the man catered to our needs and sat us inside. Lovely meal.

Worth finding entrance Winkwell road can easily be missed its just past the Petrol station its very narrow and then goes over a narrow bridge as you do you'll see the picture perfect pub by the canal, built in the 1500's full of character and charm both inside and out. Summer drinking and food along the canal can't be better... More

I love this pub. It's great in the summer if you're able to nab a table by the canal and also cosy in the winter. We were lucky this evening to get a table outside. There was a lovely atmosphere. Lots of dogs and happy people enjoying the sun! There is a good variety of drinks. Like the beer variety... More

Had some dinner with a group of colleagues at the Three Horseshoes. There is plenty of choice on the menu, service is good and fast and the food is better than expected! Definitely a good place to spend a nice evening.

We visited this pub as a late mothers day celebration. We ordered roast dinners mainly which were fine - although the portions were not as generous as other pubs visited. However my mum ordered fish and chips. When the dish arrived the fish was completely inedible. It was impossible to cut into and was not at all what you would... More

This pub on the canal has a good location and a large patio along the water. We were expecting standard pub food and although it's not a gastro-pub the food was excellent. The food is well cooked with good portions and much of it is clearly home-cooked. Excellent roasts and very good pies. Friendly staff and clearly family-run.

This pub/restaurant is my favourite place around. Great food, great atmosphere and lovely staff. It's especially nice in the summer when you can sit outside by the canal! Strongly recommend the pie, burgers or their fantastic roast dinners!

Set in picturesque countryside, this place needs to up its game when it comes to service. Having daughters who have worked in the industry simple things done right with a smile . Happy days. No one checked back to see if we were happy, we waited 20 mins with nearly empty plates not cleared. When I approached the bar to... More
