A picturesque thatched inn just outside Cambridge, The Three Horseshoes offers a concise menu of bright, fresh Mediterranean dishes. The airy conservatory restaurant and buzzy bar look out onto a large garden. Since August 2016 it is back in the ownership of John and Julia Hoskins, who previously ran it until 1997 and who also have The Old Bridge at Huntingdon.

    Excellent setting, especially on a summer's evening, though I have been several times, lunch and dinner, winter and summer. The food was lovely; sweet ham hock terrine, adventurous crayfish, chicken nicely cooked, with tasteful sauce. There is a good winelist.

    Staff were helpful, particularly in choosing wine by the glass (which is such a useful addition to restaurant practice, enabling different wines for each course and different wines for different people). Service was slow at first as the restaurant was full, even when we arrived at 7.30.

    We had a thouroughly enjoyable evening, until recently we lived in Madingley and, although we dined at the Three Horseshoes a couple of times, we were never impressed. Now the original owners have taken over there has been a transformation, so it is now one our regular Friday evening supper venues. We will return.

    The food was outstanding and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The menu is incredibly varied and all three dishes that came to the table met the same high standard. The service was also exceptional.

    Lovely meal with good mix of quality ingredients well prepared and not over complicated. Great setting, the restaurant is well decorated and provide a great dining atmosphere. There are new owners and they are obviously focussed on providing a great dining experience. We will come back soon, it will be lovely to eat out in the garden as it feels really rural though only 5 mins out of Cambridge.

    Pleasant place. Food OK but not outstanding (the pasta I had was a little flavourless). Service: we were charged for something we had ordered but did not receive, and had to sort this out after we had paid and noticed the problem. The staff were fine about giving us a refund, but it would have been nice if the problem had not arisen.

    Excellent high end pub. Not overly fussy but with some elegance. Mature clientele yet very nice too for families with adolescent or university age children. Very good food well presented.
