This pub is in a good location, with some fine views. McMullens normally seem to get the inside of their pubs right, and this one has a good local pub feel to it. The normal McMullen draught beers available, plus IPA which I have not seen before, all at sensible prices. We will return.

Mothers day rip off!
We have just experienced the worst ever service and over pricing in the Horse Shoes pub. The mother’s day menu was priced at £26.95 for 2 courses and £32.95 for 3 courses. The options were your usual pub starters such as pate and prawn cocktail and for main, Sunday roasts or fish with roast trimmings, with usual pub desserts such as banoffee pie and treacle sponge. It was a set menu for mother’s day with no other menu options. I didn’t want a dessert and asked if I could just pay for main, but was refused point blank and had to pay £27 for a roast dinner!!!!! It's no better paying £27 for a roast and prawn cocktail. Although the food was nice, paying this kind of money for basic pub grub is daylight robbery. Now let’s talk about the ambience, we arrived at our table with 7 odd chairs, 4 of which were fold up chairs, next to the toilets, under the TV showing motor racing and rugby. We were told that we had until 3.30pm when the next people were arriving for the table, which by the way was filthy! We were surrounded by people waiting for their tables. The toilet didn’t flush properly and run out of toilet roll. The staff were unfriendly, unwelcoming and some just plain rude. We asked for a high chair and were told there are only 2 and they are booked out. We were not offered an apology about this situation, that was it, like or lump it. There were 3 mothers among us and we did not have the best time, and that’s an understatement. The meal came to over £200! Needless to say we didn’t pay any service and won’t be going back.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Horseshoes

Decent village pub, with some wooden tables out front but go round the side to the beer garden at the back which his surprisingly good views. Three McMullen beers, including a nice pint of Cask. (NB - Review dates from August 2009.)
