We had a great meal at The Three Horseshoes, a first visit since the pub was the old and lovely Lickfold Inn. The good news is that the excellent food we had in the past has been inherited by the new owners/ management. A beautifully sunny day and a table on the terrace did not hurt the experience at all, but what impressed were friendly service, great food and drinks and a good bustling atmosphere. We don’t love that close by but hope to make the journey to visit again soon to try more options on the varied and delicious menu.

About the restaurant
The Shepherd & Dog has maintained all the traditions you would expect in a country pub but has added some lovely touches. The fabulous Sunday Roast on offer from noon, last bookings at 6 PM is just one example that will delight your taste buds.

Locally sourced, seasonal food menus showcasing the best of the local area. Craft beers are all local, exclusive or unusual in some way - no run of the mill here!

We look forward to seeing you soon.
