Situated in the charming
Our group chose several sizeable meals including the surf and turf, Bratwurst hot dog, and chorizo sausages, pulled pork and spare ribs. Our food came out speedily but was not without errors. One portion had the wrong chips, and the chorizo sausage combo had been initially missed off. The staff handled these setbacks with a wealth of apologies and good humour, quickly rectifying any issues.
One of the most notable things of the Three Horseshoes are the gigantic portions, so gutbustingly big that they both couldn't be finished by myself and ruled out dessert. The Bratwurst got the approval of the member of our party who has a great affection for all things German. My partner's surf and turf was enticing with an appreciated thickness to the steak. The scampi and chips had a satisfyingly moistness to the inside whilst retaining a crisp outside. And the BBQ items were delectable; the chorizo sausage had a great consistency and texture, the pulled pork was flavoursome, and the beef brisket was a delightful substantial chunk of meat, easy to pull apart and consume. In short, the food is great, with a menu that can fit the tastes of pretty much anyone who walks through their door.
The Three Horseshoes is also a very good location for families. The staff were friendly and welcoming to our daughter as she wolfed down her meal of cheesy pasta (and took great pleasure in consuming additional chips from my plate), and there is an expansive outdoor space, complete with play equipment, for when the weather becomes as welcoming as this pub.
All in all we had a satisfyingly nourishing evening, finding us filled to the brim with fresh food (even if I probably had too much on the plate). Even though there were errors with our order, the great staff effectively rectified these before they became an issue. Plus it helped that they brought mountains of chips to tide us over. The Three Horseshoes is worth a trip out of the city for, particularly for families looking for an epic meal at an affordable price. The six of us were fed for under £90, a bargain considering the size of the portions.
