The Three Horseshoes Inn, near Radnage, High Wycombe, is celebrating its maiden entry in the prestigious 2008 Michelin Guide with a Bib Gourmand award.

The Three Horseshoes Inn, is the only new Bib Gourmand entry for the county of Buckinghamshire and one of only ten pubs newly awarded with the accolade this year. The Bib Gourmand, which has now been awarded to just 133 establishments in the UK, recognizes “good food at moderate prices.”

The Michelin Guide says of the Three Horseshoes Inn, “Attractive red brick pub with tiny front bar, rear restaurant and telephone box in the duck pond. Good value, precisely cooked British dishes; well presented and locally sourced. Comfortable bedrooms have character beds and modern bathrooms. The room called] Molieres is best.”

Patron chef, Simon Crawshaw, took control of The Three Horseshoes in November 2005 and is currently overseeing a million pound refurbishment renovating the kitchens, bar and restaurant area and the six ensuite luxury bedrooms.

The 18th century, country inn has already featured in a number of publications for a variety of features; from its bird watching potential and team of Aylesbury ducks to the unusual position of its telephone box.

Simon is no stranger to food awards having worked at numerous Michelin-starred establishments including Le Gavroche, the Connaught, Chez Nico and J Sheekeys. With the Three Horseshoes Inn Simon is realizing his ambition to create beautiful food but within the relaxed environment of a typical, English inn.

The Bib Gourmand recommendation from Michelin is testament to his vision and skill. Simon comments, “The Bib Gourmand award is about serving excellent food for a good price, that is what we were striving for. Whether we push on now for a star is hard to determine, we have a good customer base who know that they can have a good meal without a huge bill at the end.”
