Handley Street, EBBESBOURNE WAKE, Nr Salisbury, SP5 5JF
Dating from the 17th century, the family-run Horseshoe is a genuine old English pub in the pretty village of Ebbesbourne Wake. The original building has not changed much, except for a conservatory extension to accommodate more diners, and there's a lovely flower-filled garden. Beyond the climbing roses are two rooms adorned with simple furniture, old farming implements and country bygones, linked to a central servery where well-kept cask-conditioned ales are dispensed straight from their barrels - Bowman Swift One, Otter Bitter and Palmers Copper - plus real ciders too. Good-value traditional bar food is offered from a varied menu. Freshly prepared from local produce, dishes include local faggots in onion gravy; ham, egg and chips; lamb hotpot; and lunchtime sandwiches. The home-made pies are a firm favourite - venison and mushroom; chicken, ham and mushroom; steak and kidney; and game. Ice creams are provided by Buttercup Ice Cream in Wardour.
