The Three Horseshoes - Laleham

by - 15:31

In an effort to get to know our new area, we took a walk to Laleham and upon Mrs Mayochup’s recommendation, found the Three Horseshoes pub. I say pub but it’s firmly in the gastropub bracket.

Upon reading fantastic reviews found on Tripadvisor, we knew we stumbled upon the right place and although not cheap, nor expensive either, we were looking forward to some great food. Of course, there are a couple of dud ones but they are from a few years ago and one is from a vegetarian so that doesn’t count. I honestly think vegetarians cannot really critique or rate any form of restaurant/pub as they limit themselves to 20% of the menu at best and then there are vegetarians who don’t even like vegetarian food. Go figure.

Whilst we were looking at the not so expansive menu, we ordered some drinks. I chose a lager I have never heard of called Veltins and Mrs Mayochup went for a Rioja rose. In order to compensate for the limited menu, the specials change on a daily basis so there is variety and there’s no chance that you would exhaust what they have to offer should you become a regular.

Speaking of the special menu, today’s looked very enticing and went for the salmon and duck respectively. The salmon came with french beans, a sunblush tomatoes with black olives, potatoes, poached egg and hollandaise sauce.

The duck came with broccoli, mashed potatoes with spring onion, slow roasted tomatoes in a bean jus.

The food tasted just as good as the pictures look, this was special. The duck was tender and cooked to perfection and the salmon just crumbled at any sort of pressure applied on it. This was food at it’s finest.

We just about had enough room for desert and the two chosen were the Sticky Toffee Pudding and the Raspberry Creme Brulé.

Of course, I suffered the ‘eyes to big for my belly’ syndrome and couldn’t finish the Sticky Toffee Pudding but it was everything you would expect. The Creme Brulé however, was lovely and I’m not even a fan of it. Creme Brulé can easily go wrong so hats off to the chef on that one.

Just one last word on the service, it was OK. The chap didn’t really engage with us much but he did his job nonetheless and I can’t really comment much more on that.

I would definitely go back and planning to bring others. This is definitely a venue for sharing.
