Want a real British pub experience? Then you want to eat at the Horse Shepshed. Housed in a building of local stone on Ashby Road, this restaurant dishes up hearty, homely food of fine-dining quality in a totally casual atmosphere. One of the oldest public houses around Loughborough, the Horse Shepshed exudes rustic charm with its soft oak beams and wood-burning fireplace. As a rule, the passionate chefs here source ingredients from within a 5-mile radius of Shepshed, unless this charming rural landscape doesn’t provide them - for example plump scallops, pan-seared and served with black pudding bon bons and white truffle oil. Each beautifully-presented dish lets the primary ingredients do the talking, adorned with delicious housemade condiments. Yet some intriguing flavour combinations help elevate the Horse well above standard pub grub, like the pear and cinnamon-infused red cabbage and orange juice reduction that bring a gorgeous seared duck breast to life.
We enjoyed excellent food in a lovely atmosphere with friends.
Excellent steak and service for a family birthday meal out.
The best restaurant around. As usual outstanding service, food and wine.
