The Three Horseshoes
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Molehill Green, Takeley, Nr. Bishop's Stortford, CM22 6PQ
This 500-year-old thatched pub is on its way back into the heart of the local community thanks to its new landlord, Rob Miller. His traditional menu includes wholesome, reasonably priced pies and hearty stews made using local meats, along with a children's section and bar snacks. Our garlic mushroom starter was a meal in itself. This we enthusiastically devoured before a main of liver and bacon in onion gravy with creamy mash and a vegetable curry. By the time it came to dessert (we had previously been eyeing up the bread and butter and sticky toffee puddings) we were sadly forced to accept defeat. With its homely atmosphere, cosy low-ceilinged bar and inglenook fireplace, The Three Horseshoes is certainly the place for those looking for a quintessentially English country pub experience.
