The 3 Horseshoes, Madingley…

As a family who love food, we use every birthday as an excuse to get together and go out for a nice meal together. I’m lucky enough to usually be the decision maker and having heard great things about The Three Horsehoes in Madingley, Cambridge, I was excited to pay them a visit on a lovely Summer’s evening…

We were seated in a lovely light conservatory at the back of the restaurant and presented with this stunning menu…

and here’s some photographic evidence of just how stunning it was. Starting with the cured and cold smoked tuna with truffle-bonito jelly, crumbs, miso, mustard seeds, gherkins & seaweed…

Mackerel roll, elderflower jelly, gooseberry compote, sea herbs and English mustard…

I had real difficulties choosing my main course but finally whittled it down to the chargrilled monkfish, soba noodles, spinach-nori roll, soy, salmon eggs and samphire…

a piece of artwork in itself, very tasty artwork mind you!

My brother had the roast pork belly, apples, onions ‘4 ways’, black pudding and ‘patatas bravas’…

and my Dad chose the roast canon of lamb, fried lamb belly, stuffed vegetables, crunchy provencale crumb, sheep’s cheese, olive, anchovy & red wine sauce…

I was particularly chuffed to see that they also had Little Creatures Pale Ale on the menu…

The portion sizes were very substantial but there’s ALWAYS room for dessert…

and we just couldn’t resist the Momofuku’s crack pie *snigger*, a rich, super sweet condensed milk creation with passion fruit curd & mascarpone…

We practically rolled out of the door, into our awesome ride…

Delicious and extremely interesting food, faultless service and a lovely setting…it’s not a cheap night out but if you fancy a treat then I highly recommend that you get yourself down to the Three Horsehoes tout suite!
