As a regular visitor to Alton, this is definitely my favourite place to eat. There is always a warm & friendly welcome from the landlords and all the staff as well as the 'locals'. I have dined with friends, family or even visited on my own without feeling uncomfortable. The food is freshly cooked and is always delicious! During the...

Turned up and had to walk though a full dining area with all our bags and suit bags that was embarising , the room was cold as the heating was turned off, the old windows let in the cold and the noise from a very busy road outside, the room was small, damp, smelly and dirty, many cobwebs cost £80...

There has been a delay in responding to this review because we asked Trip Advisor to take it down on the grounds that it was defammatory. Trip Advisor have replied that the review while being highly subjective does not breach any of their rules. Our view remains that it is factually inaccurate and rude. It is so out of kilter...

I stayed here whilst on a training course and found that it was perfect for this requirement. I had a small room with on suite but some of the rooms have a shared bathroom. The room was small but certainly adequate and I was made to feel very welcome. A complimentary breakfast is provided in the room which again, for...

We stopped there because we were on our way home and needed something to eat. The food was so-so, my pie was hot but that tasty, my wife's meal was quite small. We didn't leave a tip. To be fair, the kitchen had only just opened but the service was quite slow.

So disappointing, waitress delightful but landlord arrogant - not at all welcoming. Food ok but my fish pie was supposed to be topped with cheesy mash - no cheese and mash just mush - could have done with a spoon - just liquid. Worst fish pie I have ever tasted! Fortunately for them they didn't ask if we enjoyed our...

Great place to come and meet friends for either a drink and or a meal. The food is very good,especially the specials but the rabbit pie is exceptional . Friendly and sociable atmosphere, and very welcoming staff. If you're feeling a bit cold then they have very nice open fires

Glad you liked the rabbit pie. Lamb and leek suit pudding is also on at the moment and proving very popular. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A traditional pub with over two hundred years of history. The Three Horseshoes is located in the beautiful countryside of the South Downs National park in East Worldham, just outside Alton. Friendly and welcoming, The Three Horseshoes is hugely popular with walkers, families and with dog owners. Inside the comfortable pub has roaring log fires and flickering candles in winter. In the summer, there is a beautiful walled garden - hidden away for you to relax in the sunshine, savouring a long cool drink. Its mature shrubs, surrounded by the old forge outbuildings, offer a peaceful world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Three Horseshoes' menus are of the highest quality, balancing the hearty flavours of good traditional British eating with a more refined approach, the result being sophisticated but satisfying dishes to suit all tastes. Wherever possible the kitchen sources produce locally for use in not only the main menu but in light bites , daily changing specials and home-made traditional desserts. For those travelling to dine, you might consider booking a room for the night - The Three Horseshoes provides five letting rooms and space for motor-homes in the car park. ... more   less
