Our first visit but it won't be our last.
Great location, nice bright restaurant. Staff were excellent, knew the menu and wine list, and were pleased to help.
Steaks cooked to our perfection. all in all a great place to celebrate our wedding anniversary

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 service and the fixed price lunch with an Italian twist was delicious and good value.

    Good food and good wine. Vegetables a bit sweet, but otherwise excellent.

    Always very good and very reliable. Balanced flavours, fresh food. Oysters were excellent and fresh. The risotto was also very good and cooked to perfection. the portion could have been a bit larger and the artichokes were overpowered by the crispy shallots. the blade of beef was also excellent, again portion a bit small, which is a change form our previous dining experience at the horseshoe.

    Having read that The Three Horseshoes had a special mention in the Michelin guide for 2018, we decided to try the place out for a light lunch on a Saturday. We decided to go for a selection of starters/sharing plates between my wife and I - a bit like tapas.

    The food was nice, but considering how much the dishes cost and given it's special mention in the Michelin guide, we were disappointed with the quality. We had very high expectations. To summarise: The pork cheek we had was under seasoned, the chips could have been crispier and there was very little mushroom (in my opinion) in the mushroom ravioli. The salt cod balls we had were nice but very salty; I think that was to be expected (hence the name) so we can't complain about that. The best thing we had was the beetroot salmon. We did wonder whether the main dishes would have been better, but regardless, we expected a high quality no matter what we ordered.

    The booking was easy, the staff were nice and service was quick no complaints with any of those points.

    Super food in a lovely environment. But flower decoration was poor and just before Xmas!

    We had a lovely time at The Three Horseshoes. The food was lovely,I had Sea Bass and my wife had the steak, both meals were cooked to perfection, the atmosphere was perfect the Inn was clean and well presented and the staff were polite and friendly. We will certainly be returning to this wonderful venue.

    Lovely setting and great ambience. Quite a limited menu but what was on it was well received by all of us. The chicken dinner was really well presented/cooked and the wines really enjoyable. Waiter recommended a specific gin for one of our party who said it was a great choice. We would all definitely visit again and have recommended friends and work colleagues to head their way too.
