The Shoes and Us
The Three Horseshoes Pub and Kitchen is a beautiful three hundred year old thatched stone property on the Jurassic Coast in the idyllic village of Burton Bradstock. We are in walking distance of the coastal path and the stunning 'Hive' beach, offering wonderful views and invigorating walks. We have the log fires burning in the winter and a lovely suntrap beer garden for the summer. Dog friendly, children welcome, muddy boots allowed. Our aim is to be a pub where we would be happy to spend our free time. Ample parking is available.
