Visited on a Thursday at 6:30 pm. reasonably busy, but not very welcoming. Appears to be a bit of a "locals" pub and made us feel uncomfortable as we are not from the village. We asked if we needed to book a table as ALL were in the process of being laid. Advised no food until 7pm. Barman felt it necessary to take the piss out of my partners preference for lime and soda (she was driving that day!) so decided to take our food order elsewhere. Frensham Soul...however was excellent

We've been coming here periodically for more than 30 years. I read the previous comments so wasn't surprised, it being a Sunday, at the devotion to feeding the masses that had descended. We therefore went prepared to just have a beer and were made very welcome perched at the bar. The home badged beer is in fact designed by them with Frensham Brewery so we were very happy to sample this brewery for the first time. Very good it was as well. We stuck to it as the other beers on offer, Hogs Back TEA and Tribute from St Austell didn't fit our taste as much. The barman said he had taken one from Tillingbourne off as it was a bit samey as the Frensham but in my opinion it would nicer to see one of theirs on the bar as they produce many different styles. St Austell is big brewery with many tied houses in Cornwall so it seems a shame to truck it all the way up here when there are so many superb local breweries that could do with our support. If intending to eat at weekend, book.

I am bemused by the comments of "ramblethenlunch" of 14th September last.
One of the attractions of The Three Horseshoes is that it remains a proper pub, rather than a gastropub, where the staff look down on those who have just popped in for a drink.
My family and I had lunch in the bar on New Years Day and it was excellent.The pub was understandaby packed,but there was no problem with service or the size of portions.The Doom Bar was first class.
We found the prices perfectly reasonable and very competitive for a Surrey pub-particularly as this pub was the Surrey dining Pub of the Year in the 2012 Good Pub Guide..
Unfortunately,we live 30 miles away-if we were nearer we would be regulars.

On a long circular walk from Hindhead via Gibbet Hill and the Devil's Punch Bowl we lunched at the Three Horseshoes.

First of all it's not that easy to find. There's no pub sign, so you have to look for the car park and the name painted over the door.

The pub is divided into two - the pub is at the front and the restaurant at the back. The pub bit was quite busy on the Thursday lunch time we visited, but the restaurant was empty. TEA and Doom Bar available - looking at the previous reviews this appears to be an unchanging range - more Cornish beer lugged all the way up to Surrey - why not something more local. We all had TEA which was excellent - no problems there.

The menu for pub diners is small - half a dozen starters, a dozen mains and some designer sandwiches. It's pretty pricey for a pub though - two of the main courses were over 20, which is a lot for a pub lunch. Two of us plumped for omelette and chips, whilst I had ham, egg and chips. Both of these retailed at 9.50. Whilst the food was fine, the portion size could best be described as meagre. I've had bigger starters than this main course.

It's a shame that this very pleasantly situated village pub has morphed into a restaurant. Villages need pubs. Do food by all means - I understand that any pub needs to these days to survive. And have a restaurant attached - pricey if you like - again no problem. But don't combine the two - it doesn't work.

A good pub spoiled by a bit of pretentiousness.

This is a lovely place with a particular idyllic garden for a Summer's day. The beer is generally ok but I thought the food was mediocre and a touch over-priced. Placing an order for food was a real hassle but after that the service was pretty good.

Shame about the fake review (gfisher51).
