The Three Horseshoes is a picturesque thatched inn with a small, bustling bar and a pretty conservatory-restaurant overlooking a large garden. Madingley is just 4 miles west of  Cambridge, and easily accessible from the A14, M11 or A428.


We take orders 12-2.15pm and 6-9pm. On Fridays and Saturdays we extend to 10pm and on Sundays we are only open for lunch, orders 12-2.30pm. You can eat wherever you prefer and you’re welcome to come the bar and garden just for drinks.

In August 2016 The Three Horseshoes was taken over again by John and Julia Hoskins’s company Huntsbridge, which ran it successfully for many years until 2007 – and which also owns The Old Bridge at Huntingdon.

We will gradually refurbish the building over the rest of 2016. (The conservatory is out of used until the middle of September). Please bear with us as we make these improvements.
