Amazing wedding

We held our wedding here on 10/02/2024 and truly had the most magical day! Nothing was too trouble for the staff, they took care of every little detail of the running of the day so that we could both fully enjoy it.
The room looked absolutely stunning and they had everything set up exactly as I pictured it in my head, the food was amazing and all the guest commented on how fantastic it was.
Really glad we chose the three horseshoes for our wedding and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Unforgettable day. Great venue.

We cannot praise the staff at the venue enough for their help and professionalism through our day. They took care of everything I wanted and I didn’t need to worry about a thing. I didn’t use a venue dresser and chose to create my own centrepieces and aisle displays etc. I was worried about getting these all set up in the way I wanted them but I left them instructions and they displayed everything exactly as I had hoped. The food was beautiful and the service was exceptional. I genuinely can’t thank the staff enough for their help. The only tiny criticism is I feel the wedding preparation suite could be part of all packages they offer (it’s included in some but not all). At 250.00, it’s quite expensive if you literally need if for an hour before the ceremony. All in all THANK YOU to everyone at The Shoes. I would urge anyone to use this venue for their own special day.

Amazing venue and staff

We got married at the three horse shoes in October 2023.

And WOW, the venue and staff were fantastic, we could of not hoped for our day to have gone any smoother.

we booked our wedding approx. 3 years prior to our wedding day, and from the first booking, straight through to our big day, the communication was fantastic.
we found the staff really friendly and very helpful.

With so much planned on our big day with venue decorators, singing waiters, live entertainment for the evening, a piano singer, we didn't know how all this was going to work.
But the venue staff made it work.
Wendy, Lisa and McCaila were our main contacts and was with us every step throughout our big day, you were all amazing, thank you so much for making our day so special.
also a massive well done to all the staff at the venue.

We could not have wished for anything more from the Three horse shoes.
The food was amazing, and the scenery for our wedding photo's was beautiful..

Thank you all so much and we both look forward to seen you all, when we return to visit again for our anniversary Spa Day.

Love Mr & Mrs Matner

What a wonderful wedding

A wonderful wedding from start to finish. If you are looking for a wedding on a budget or a small intimate wedding like we did… look no further! The Three Horseshoes cater for all weddings both big and small! What a perfect venue with wonderful customer service! We would choose this again and again! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

We couldn’t actually stay here on our wedding night due to dog commitments so we were given a voucher! A peaceful location a stones throw away from Leek! We love this place. With views to die for! Thank you!

Mr and Mrs Boswell

Me and my husband had our wedding at the Three Horse Shoes Inn on the 22nd July 2023. They could not be more accommodating if they tried, any queries I had before the wedding was answered straight away. The day run smoothly with absolutely no hitch at all, the food was also amazing. Everything from start to finish was organised brilliantly. I can’t thank the whole team enough for making our special day the best day ever.

Best Wedding Venue

We had our wedding at The Three horseshoes Inn September 10th 2022 and it exceeded all of our expectations. Wendy and all of the staff went above and beyond to help ensure our wedding day went as smoothly as possible.
Any questions we had prior to our wedding day were very promptly answered and help was always available for us.
All of our guests complimented the excellent food quality and the service was so efficient for all of our 93 guests ensuring that we all ate together. Drinks remained flowing during the day and the staff were so polite and friendly it really made our day for our guests to be so well looked after.
The rooms to stay over are all excellent and tastefully decorated with a variety of prices available for all budgets.
Enchanted decorated the wedding venue for us and it took our breath away it was way beyond our expectations absolutely stunning and very classy.
The change over from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast room was so quick by all of the waiting on staff and it was all completed whilst we were having our photographs in the absolutely stunning gardens. Really these views over the roaches are absolutely stunning as well as many areas of the Three horseshoes garden areas to have some beautiful photographs taken.
We were also impressed by the bridal suite where I was able to share getting ready having hair & makeup done with my sisters and close friends, this room is amazing it has dressing tables, ensuite shower room, a lounge area and an elevated outdoor terrace with seating areas where we enjoyed a glass of prosecco whilst getting ready.
Wendy was amazing at keeping me informed with what would happen next and she also kept the groom informed too. She was such a calming influence and helped to ensure that I was ready to walk down the aisle looking my best, she made sure my wedding dress was fanned out at the back and gave me good advice regards holding the bouquet. A lovely touch was how the waiting on staff were lined up to greet me as I entered the area ready to walk towards the aisle with my Nephew who was giving me away, it all added to the experience of making our day so special, magical and very classy.
Last but not least we definitely recommend their own DJ Nicky he was brilliant and played all of the music we had requested.
Everything we could have ever wished for was all catered for at this venue and we both definitely recommend having your wedding here or any special parties or anniversaries. Excellent value for our wedding and very reasonably priced for the quality and all that is available for everything you need on your wedding day.

The Three HorseShoes

The most perfect venue for everything for the most magical day you want. All the staff are so very helpful and friendly, they can’t do enough for you from beginning to end, plus also the build up to your day, anything you needed to ask was no trouble at all for them. They made us feel so at ease & relaxed, & everything just ran so smoothly being in their capable & experience hands.
The setting inside and the views outside for your photos are just breathtaking.
We would definitely recommend The Three HorseShoes to anybody wanting their wedding there.

Wedding day

I would highly recommend this wedding venue to anyone looking for a country setting. The views are amazing and the facilities are stunning. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had an amazing day. There are plenty of rooms for guests to book and we all had a separate part of the restaurant reserved for our breakfast the next morning so we could all catch up together. DJ was included in the package and he was really good, any requests were played. The bridal prep suite is definitely worth booking I was put at ease in there by the staff and there is plenty of space for hair and make up, we had 8 in the bridal party and we were so comfortable. We have a lot of children in the family and the staff were really laid back and didn’t mind them running around. You are set back from the main restaurant and bar so we didn’t feel like we were interrupting anyone elses stay.

Out of this world. It completely exceeding all expectations. Our day was everything we could’ve ever dreamed of and more.

We can’t thank Lisa and the team at the Three Horseshoes enough for everything they did for us on our wedding day and the lead up to. Nothing was too much of an ask and they really went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, and that it was. We can’t even put into words how thankful we are. Our day was everything we dreamed of and more. It was more than perfect. We wish we could do the day over 1000x more. The venue, the staff, the food, everything was absolutely exceptional. From Beth & Jake, thank you so so much. We highly recommend x

Wedding 2023

Wow what can I say from having a wedding viewing right up to the big day (and after) the team at the three horse shoes have just been fantastic!
I had complete support from start to finish, I had nightmares about awaiting long responses to my many wedding questions but the team were always happy to help with speedy responses and constant support.
My day was truly magical there is not one thing I would change.
I had no idea how I was going to keep track of the order of the day but I was supported the whole way through guided and pointed in the right direction, I really wanted my wedding to be relaxed and family oriented but I want us all to have a fabulous time and we certainly did.
The food was absolutely gorgeous the whole team were so friendly and personable so I loved every second !
I can not thank you all enough for making our day so so so special exactly what I wanted no pressure to conform to normal wedding formalities it flowed perfectly.

Absolutely brilliant!

We could not have wished for a better wedding venue or service. The Three Horseshoes helped to make our wedding day exactly what we wanted, they even let us include our dogs which made our experience even more special. The food was absolutely amazing and the venue itself was stunning. Thank you so so much! Would 100% recommend.

5 Star Review

The staff at the Three Horseshoes were absolutely amazing and made our day one to remember. I had total faith in them, and they didn't disappoint. From the cleaning staff, to the receptionists, to the wedding organiser on the day, to the catering staff, they were all excellent. Our day went without a hitch, and the food was divine. Our room (and those of our guests) were spotless. I couldn't recommend this venue highly enough.

We spent approximately £5,000 including the drinks and buffet upgrade for 30 daytime and 42 nighttime guests. This was a late package deal.
