AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu

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 Ales Swift One, Otter Bitter and Palmers Copper Ale – plus real ciders too. Good-value traditional bar food is offered from a varied menu. Freshly prepared from local produce, dishes include liver and bacon; local faggots in onion gravy; fresh fish bake; and lunchtime sandwiches. The home-made pies are a firm favourite – venison and mushroom; chicken, ham and mushroom; steak and kidney; and game.
