A Warm Welcome

The Royal Horseshoes dates back to the mid 15th century and is protected by a grade Ⅱ listing. A very traditional pub boasting a copper bar and a beautiful thatched roof. The Horseshoes became The Royal Horseshoes back in 1843 following a visit from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The Pub sign features Victoria as a princess on her favourite grey horse. The heritage continues inside with the doors and bar panels having been saved from Buckminister Hall which was destroyed by a fire in the 1920’s.

We offer a relaxed dining experience with all food prepared from fresh ingredients handmade on site. Our bar holds a wide range of cask ales, a very extensive selection of gin and bourbons alongside the usual spirits and soft drinks. Our wine list includes a selection of white, rosé, red and sparkling available by the bottle with selected wines by the glass.
