user reviews of the Three Horseshoes, Cheddington

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Of the 5 pub visited in the area on one night this was my least favourite, although it was the busiest! The small public bar was a bit smelly, but that could have been the punters rather than the fabric of the building. We ended up sitting outside, (even on a February night) as it was a bit tight for space inside. The Tribute beer was ok and some people looked to be enjoying food tucked in a corner. So if you are looking for a busy village local with plenty of drinkers this is your place.

Picture this!
A party of six (hungry and thirsty) having walked from Tring arrive here at 14.05 – 5 minutes too late for a hot lunch. “Too late” they are informed. OK, fair enough, it does say that there is a 14.00 deadline for serving hot lunches. So what about some sandwiches – surely something can be rustled up? Certainly not!

Exit left by the party of six who head for the Old Swan a short walk down the road. Greeted by a friendly lady – happy to accommodate you and, yes, no problem with serving you a nice hot lunch. Party of six have excellent lunch and decide to stay for the afternoon, spending a not insubstantial three-figure sum in the process. A good time had by all.

We now know which is the better pub in Cheddington and which will go out of its way to see to customer needs.

I leave you to make the judgement. For our part we will not be gracing the doorstep of the Three Horseshoes ever again.

Pleasant, old-fashioned village pub with friendly staff and characterful local clientele. At the time of my recent visit, three hand pump ales were available: London Pride, St Austell Tribute and Greene King IPA. I had the Tribute, and my companion the Greene King, both of which were good.

Popped in for some lunch en route between Bedford & Wycombe on a Saturday lunchtime. Landlady been there for 16 years and barman for over 20 years. Both seem to care a great deal about the pub and proud of it and of it's heritage. 2 bars; one with wooden floors and lovely old photos. Very nice and "un-modern". Smaller bar to the left carpeted and more snug. Decking outside and large grassed garden with playground for kids. Ploughmans fantastic and some of the best beef we've ever had. All sourced locally (unlike Swan up the road). Stowford Press on draught. Well worth the visit. Some amateur pub reviewers had visited night previous to us and given it a rare (for them) 10/10. Only slight negative I can say is that it's on a busy road and slightly noisy outside

Now we are talking great little local pub here, real fires in winter, a good rotary selection of well kept Ale and food to die for.

Frequently call in here after a walk around the reservoirs, for refreshment and nutrition, it never fails to please.

Brilliant pub run by Nell & Jerry,not forgetting Richard too of course. Excellent food,well cooked and served,great beers and great atmosphere especially at weekends. The locals are very inviting and friendly with plenty of humour to go around.
Can't recommend this pub enough.

I've always lked this place. Big car park and garden and now a comfortable patio with seating and tables. Two bars - public on the right and lounge on the left. The clientele tend to overlap. It used to be full of smokers, and is thus even better now they've gone. The surroundings are clean and comfortable, the beer always spot on thanks to Richie the Cellarman. Presently serving GK IPA, Old Speckled Hen and Hobgoblin. The food is first class, even the Saturday rolls which, at £1 a time, are great value for money. And in winter there are log fires...
