New owner at Three Horseshoes In Madingley
A well-known Cambridgeshire inn and restaurant has undergone a change of ownership and extensive refurbishment programme.
John and Julia Hoskins, owners of The Huntsbridge Group which includes The Old Bridge at Huntingdon, have taken back the lease of Three Horseshoes in Madingley. For the last nine years, it was run by RCS Catering which has now ceased trading.
The last few weeks have seen major works at the picturesque thatched inn, with the re-building of the conservatory at the back overlooking the garden, re-decoration of the exterior and interior and a new outside area at the front giving customers a place to enjoy a drink or lunch.
John Hoskins is a Master of Wine and brings a wealth of hospitality expertise to the Three Horseshoes, having successfully run The Huntsbridge Group for 22 years.
At one time the group included The Old Bridge, The Pheasant at Keyston and the Falcon at Fotheringhay, as well as the Three Horseshoes itself.
He says: “We are very excited to have taken the lease back and are already implementing a number of exciting changes.
Our refurbishment programme will continue through the autumn, creating a smart, comfortable and relaxed setting but retaining the traditional ambience.
“We are introducing a new menu which features fresh, simple and seasonal food from the Mediterranean which we hope will appeal to both existing and new customers.
“The wine list has also been refreshed, now offering an eclectic assortment of bottles with the emphasis on light, bright, modern styles which complement the style of food. Over the coming months, we will be hosting special wine events when we pair wines with food.
“With our talented kitchen and new additions to our friendly front of house team, we look forward to welcoming people to eat or just pop in for a drink.”
