The Three Horseshoes Inn is a family run Country Inn in the middle of the Herefordshire countryside.

Philip (son of owners Janet & Norman) is Head Chef a The Three Horseshoes Inn, having trained at Manchester Met. University and travelled extensively. He is passionate about food especially using local ingredients to produce the menu.

The Three Horseshoes Inn uses local suppliers for meats, particularly game, which is brought in by gamekeepers, including pheasant, partridge, rabbit, venison, and pigeon when in season.

Local fisherman supply trout and all other fish comes from M & J Seafoods & Birmingham Fish Market. Enjoy the locally produced eggs, potatoes & vegetables. The busy owners grow herbs and tomatoes and salads themselves during the summer. The style of cooking is simple country food, using fresh ingredients. The Three Horseshoes Inn makes all their own chutneys, pickles & jams – pickled damsons and spiced pears being favourites with ploughmans lunches for which they use some local cheeses.

One dish which is not local but has become a specialty is Cataplana the Portuguese fish stew which the owners have eaten on holiday and loved. Special cooking dishes were brought back and are used to produce as near as they can the flavour of the Algarve.

We really do use local produce – have a look at our website where you will find a list of our local suppliers.

The Three Horseshoes Inn was bought and renovated by local couple Norman and Janet Whittall 20 years ago. Norman and Janet know the area well since they both grew up in Bromyard.

Janet, Norman and Philip look forward to welcoming you.
