Discover the Three Horseshoes Inn
Welcome to the Three Horseshoes Inn. We are a cosy gastropub tucked away in a cul-de-sac on a small hill in the quaint village of Groesffordd. In early 2017 the pub was extensively refurbished and extended to create a 46 seater restaurant, traditional bar, open fire, real ales and high-quality gastropub style food.
Ashley Haworth has owned and run the country pub and restaurant for over twenty years now, keeping it updated, the menu interesting, but still retaining the cosy, historical vibe of its past. The Groesffordd (as the Three Horseshoes Groesffordd is more affectionately known to the locals) started out as a house called Ty R Yr Groesffordd which loosely translated means…”House on the crossways”. At the time it was situated next to the railway line and Groesffordd Halt.
In 1846 a man named David Powell who was a local blacksmith decided that he would open a Blacksmith Shop and Inn in the house and named it The Three Horseshoes. The name was derived from the belief that when a horse lost its shoe, the horse’s owner would stop at the inn to re-shoe his horse and thus when they came, the horse only had three shoes.
The pub itself has had many landlords over the years but was kept in one family for over one hundred years.
