About The Horse Shepshed

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.

Living in Whitwick it's great to have quality food nearby. Setting, service, drink choice and food excellent. My wife and I both had the sirloin steaks cooked to perfection. Best onion rings.

Sunday lunch was excellent. In fact can't remember when we last had such an amazing Sunday lunch. You could not fault the food at all.
