The Horse Shepshed has the rustic charm of a country pub but offers a creative, modern menu. Thanks to its picturesque setting in rural Leicestershire and its reputation for superb food, this eatery draws in discerning diners from both nearby and further afield. One of Shepshed’s oldest venues, The Horse is a long-standing fixture in the local community, and the building’s long history lends it added charm.

Families, couples and groups of friends all assemble here to enjoy top-notch food and drink, and the warm, jovial atmosphere is as inviting as can be. The relaxed bar area, with its wood-burning stove, was the perfect setting for my aperitif. Moving through to the cosy restaurant, I enjoyed a sensational starter of Thai green mussels with crusty bread and wasabi butter. My main course of braised lamb shoulder with sticky red cabbage, honey and sesame carrots, creamed potatoes, celeriac purée and redcurrant jus was equally sophisticated and delicious. Other offerings such as the delectable Sunday lunch prove very popular, and in 2016 the team introduced The Stables, a delightful al fresco eatery serving mouth-watering signature pizzas that are stone-baked in a traditional pizza oven. If you fancy extending your stay, book a room in The Barn Courtyard, The Horse’s delightful accommodation featuring six luxurious en-suite bedrooms. B&B guests are treated to a mouth-watering breakfast, which non-residents can also enjoy on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. Book yourself in to visit soon, as this lovely hidden gem won’t stay secret for long.
