Wow - a great review. It is not that far from Machynlleth. I go shopping in Shrewsbury sometimes - & then to The Horseshoe Inn. This would be FAB! Thanks ;-))!!
10 reviews of The Horseshoe Inn in English
This place has had something of a chequered history but, happily, there seems to be real hope that the very positive changes are for the long-term. Three Tuns Brewery has a dominant role here, the beer is excellent and the investment continues.
It’s a great pub for walkers and sightseers, being in the lee of Long Mynd, and Sunday lunch is generally very good. The carvery (not normally one of my favourites) is first class both in terms of quality and quantity and the pie of the day (short-crust pastry) is excellent.
Oh, and it’s now named “The Bridges”, which is what it’s been called for years in any case.
Walked over the Mynd from All Stretton in November 2010; really ready for the usual pug grub and a pint before walking back over the top. When we got the Horseshoes unfortunately the receivers had beaten us to it and closed the place down. So back to Church Stretton, no grub, no pint. Next time we went to the Crown at Wentnor.
I rang the Horsehoes the day before (Friday 10th September) to check the daytime opening hours as a group of us would be walking past in the afternoon and fancied a pint. I was politely informed they were open all day from 12 onwards.
Arriving at 3.00pm we were told that there was a private function on and we could only get to the bar if we forked out £5.00 each!
Needless to say, none of us will be 'trying' to use the pub again.
I was out walking with some friends and we asked the landlord if we could pop into the pub for a drink after we had eaten our packed lunches sat on the grass opposite.
He objected to this pretty modest request and ordered us all away from the premises, entirely off the property. He could not be reasoned with and whilst it is his decision who he serves in the bar it did not seem very reasonable to us.
We won't be going back. It was potentially quite tricky as there are not too many drinks places in that area.
A little out of the way but a great spot for some food or a quick drink when passing, parking isn’t a problem and there is a stream for the kids to play in. The bar is stocked well with guest beers and the usual other tipples. The food is good hearty pub grub that comes in good sized portions. A general all round good pub / restaurant. An ideal base for heading into the hills.
The Horseshoes Inn is an hidden gem of a pub, just about 10 minutes drive from the town of Shrewsbury. The location is a real country location, the pub has woodburner stoves, and its so tempting to grab a pint and stay near the fire. The pub has live music 5 nights a week, and covers all tastes. The food is of a good standard, not the run of the mill pub chain meals, good home cooked wholesoom food, where you eat a meal and you are full, you know youve been fed. There is a good array of real ale, and these are priced excellently. The staff are very friendly, be it your 1st or 100th visit, you feel like you are visiting friends.
Wonderful pub in glorious Shropshire area of outstanding natural beauty. It has good food, real ale and live music 5 nights per week. We received a warm welcome, and we were told the dog could have joined us, which is great. Its an authentic local pub which although out of the way, is well worth the short detour if travelling on the A49
Fantastic country pub in set in the rolling hills of Shropshire, The Horseshoe Inn is a real hidden gem. I knew when I saw a puff of woodsmoke rising lazily over the crest of the road, that we were in for a treat, and I wasn’t disappointed. Delicious ales, good solid pub grub, a wood burner, dogs welcome, and live music 5 nights a week. Open mic is on Monday, sadly I won’t be there to check it out, but I’ll certainly be popping in again. It’s a cracking spot for walks along the brook, and what better place to return and rest those tired legs?

You won’t regret it! I went back on Saturday night and it was rocking - they had 2 different bands on, in the middle of nowhere!

This is a gem. Great atmosphere, welcoming and friendly. My lunch was good and reasonably priced and the live music plus the beautiful setting make this a must visit venue ( as often as possible)
