user reviews of the Three Horseshoes, Brimpton

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

I thought the previous review was a bit harsh. It's a proper village local which is becoming increasingly rare in this prosperous part of Berkshire. Two Arkells beers were on handpump - 3Bs and Wiltshire Gold, with a barrel of Good Ol' Boy under the bar. I had a pint of the latter which was OK if a little too near the end of the barrel. A folkie band was limbering up with Whiskey in the Jar, but I preferred to sit outside in the garden taking in the view. I'll be back when I can.

An odd one this. The pub is divided into two, in what was once public and saloon bar no doubt. Now though the larger part of the pub is a restaurant type eating area, with a layout reminiscent of a genteel tea shop. During our visit this area remained stubbornly empty.
The smaller part of the pub was the drinking area. This area was reduced in size still further by there being a pool table slap bang in the middle of the room. This reduced the seating area to about half a dozen tables around the edge of the room, one of which was situated on the dartboard oche ! We had around half a dozen fellow drinkers with us, which made the pub look quite full - when it wasn't.
Only one beer availalble - Arkells 3B. Quality was good. Two other handpumps not in use and when we enquired as to why, we were told " we don't sell enough beer to warrant having more than one beer on at a time". That doesn't bode well.
Food is cheap and cheerful. A "Belly Buster Burger" at £7.50 was OK but my friends breaded fish clearly came out of a packet. The food was delivered to our table with no offer of sauce, etc, or even an "enjoy your meal".
As stated below, it's the only pub in the village so I guess it can get away with it, but there is definitely much room for improvement here.

Nice enough location by road junction in small village. Beer quality a bit variable (unusual for an Arkell's place). Generally somewhat rough and ready and gives the impression it could be better than it is. However there are no other pubs nearby, and it's OK if you happen to be in the area.
