|Its a nice pub to sit outside in the afternoon sunshine, certainly has a bit more atmosphere than the Cheshire Cheese along the road which was dead on our two separate visits.|
The Marston's Burton Bitter at The Horseshoe was not bad, but like the previous poster, for beer and food I'd thoroughly recommend the mile walk down the hill to the Pack Horse in Crowdecote.

|I almost feel guilty for giving it such a bad review, as the staff are lovely. Really friendly welcome.|
However... with a nice old pub like this, it's a shame when so little effort goes into the product. The beer choice is pretty uninspired (it's Marston's) and the food was disappointing. I had a rock-hard overcooked chicken breast in (admittedly delicious) stilton sauce, served with undercooked chips. Could do a lot better for a tenner. If you're staying in Longnor, take a nice evening stroll to the Packhorse in Crowdecote.

|It was certianly friendly enough, and when you're in the middle of nowhere you'd settle for pretty much any drinking hostelry but, the beer was poor (Both Courage Directors and Marston's Bitter), the interior left me cold, and the huge screens showing live football just didn't seem right (given we're in the heart of beautiful countryside).|
If there was nowhere else to drink, I'd settle for its faults and drink there but when you have the absolute gem that is Ye Old Cheshire Cheese around the corner you'd be crazy not to be there instead.
