I have visited The Three Horseshoes about four times in the last six months, I haven't been impressed at all with the service or value for money, although the food is okay, the menu is limited and uninspiring but over priced in my opinion. When it was suggested by a friend that a group of us and our children meet for lunch over half term I wasn't overly enthused but non the less accepted the invitation and went with an open mind, however after waiting at the bar for ten minutes and then being ignored while the bar tender washed glasses I politely pointed out that I had yet to order and asked if he was free to which his response was, " no I'm expensive ". I let that comment go but I wasn't happy about it, later on one of my friends and another friends daughter asked the same bar tender if there were any straws and then he demanded that they say please, he didn't give them a chance to find out whether there were any straws, the next question would have been may we have one please. Another friend arrived much later than the rest of us with her toddler she was drinking an energy drink in the car and her toddler had a little packet of sweets to finish off she placed these on our table outside and had gone into order drinks and food for the both of them the same bar tender came out to collect glasses and our food plates e.c t. ( we had spent well over £100 on lunch between us all ) and seeing the can and sweets became very hostile, as the items didn't belong to us we weren't aware that they were not purchased inside ( not having memorized the menu ) needless to say we left shortly after and thankfully won't be going back, the whole place could use a good clean and it's like it's not even finished the staff all look miserable and don't even make eye contact, the kids seem to get on their nerves, The Three Horseshoes kid friendly or not?
