The booking was made blind as we had little time to do so. The welcome was excellent, the staff knowledgeable and the food not only well cooked but trencherman portions. The reals ales were well kept and the wines were well chosen and at a good price. Nothing was too difficult for the staff, even to the extent of working...

We called in for a meal simply as we were driving past. The pub was very welcoming. We noticed the meals going to other tables looked on the large side so we didn't bother with starters which was a good decision. I ordered fish and chips and my husband got the slow cooked beef. My fish was beautiful. Served in...

Lovely pub in middle of countryside but a short drive to Durham city centre (10 mins) car park charges in city far outwayed by saving on cost of city hotel Could not fault accommodation food and service Beer was also excellent. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Must be great in summer to sit on outside decking looking over Durham...

Have visited the horseshoes twice in the past month, both times the food and service has been great! The butchers grill and Ribeye steak, cooked in the inca oven, are tremendous, don't think there is a better steak in the Durham area. This is becoming a firm favourite of ours.

It came with new potatoes which I didnt really want and I asked for chips as they are pretty good.....my Dad ordered and came back and said I cant have chips as it...

Thought we would give this place a second shot - my review from when this pub first reopened was mainly about it being overpriced for pub grub and the food being bland. We went last Sunday for Sunday lunch, I can't fault the service and the staff, excellent - however the food again was extremely bland and unseasoned which was...

As same owners for old mill, we knew what were expecting. In some ways I preferred this place, might be because I am a Shadforth lass and the 3 horse shoes was where I had my first chicken in a basket! Menu is smaller but still way big enough, the sea bass was excellent as were the sweet potato fries,...

We booked a twin room for two nights and when we arrived the young barman took our case upstairs...very helpful. The room had been recently refurbished and was well appointed including comfy beds, TV freeview channels, rain shower and fluffy towels. The room was spotless each day. The manager and his wife ensured that our schedule for meals could be...
