A cosy, whitewashed country pub, The Three Horseshoes near St Albans boasts a traditional interior, with exposed oak beams, wooden flooring and ornate mirrors. Serving well-loved British pub favourites, the pub also has luxurious seating by the welcoming hearth-fire or in the pretty decking area for al fresco dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Three Horseshoes menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

    Staff polite. Service a little slow. Main course enjoyable. Desert disappointing - how can a trifle not have custard and perhaps jelly?

  • ((((* 10 October 2016 by Noel Wright from St.Albans

    Food and Ale were very good. We were not happy with the situation of the first table we were shown to but the Waitress kindly gave us a suitable one. I was disappointed not to get Broadside bitter but the Doom bar was good.

    Had table booked for 12 arrived at 11.50 let us in at 11.58 staff didn't appear very happy felt we were in the way. Roast potatoes sent back they were raw vegetables nice steaks not great (fillet & ribeye) overall not worth the money probably would have been better having the roast cheaper and looked nice latte was nice.

    Unpleasant experience overall .unfortunately the chef forgot my main course garnish listed on the menu and then I was served the wrong dessert!The waiter did not charge me for the replacement dessert.
    Unfortunate first visit experience.May go again to give it a second chance.
