Had a lovely Sunday roast at The Horseshoes. A good selection of food and wines. Good portions of food. We had starters and a main meal, but had no dessert as we were full. The food was served quickly and the staff friendly.

Loved the cocktail selection! The Elderflower sherbet mocktail was lovely and the pornstar martinis are even garnished with half a passionfruit! Friendly staff and the food was great. I recommend the chicken karaaga starter with a very tasty katsu curry sauce. Will definitely be back! Thankyou!

The mains were also good however the sticky chicken for an adult wasn't a good portion size and it appeared to have been smothered in a bottle of sweet chilli sauce with some... More

Thank you for your review. The sticky chicken is one of the more popular dishes on the menu - I will speak to the chefs and suppliers to ensure the size of the chicken breast is correct. I do not want any of my guests to leave feeling they have not had a good meal. The sauce is made as... More

Have had many meals here. Food is lovely. Often have my family birthday meals here. Always willing to bring out a birthday cake we bring in. Decent menu size. Maybe a few more puddings but apart from that it's great. Good for couples and families
