The Three Horse Shoes has some extremely happy memories for me. An appealing appearance, spotted just off the A189 between Blyth and Bedlington, it was one of my first real ale pubs.
Originally a very old traditional boozer it used to be a once a week meeting place for a gang of us. It was always used for Xmas or any party for that matter. On quite a few, getting home was a bit of a mystery.
My recent visit found the place pleasantly extended to include a much improved eating area without spoiling the bar for the drinker. A good selection of real ales including Wentworth Rampant Gryphon, Thwaites Lancaster Bomber and Black Sheep among the choices which were changed regularly. Again nothing changed there as the beer I had, the Lancaster Bomber , was excellent. Another visit is on the menu and highly recommended.
