Comments by walkers who stayed at Horseshoe Hotel in Egton Bridge on The Coast to Coast Path
Lovely views front and back. Elegant dining room. Carried our bags up. Queen bed. Woke to rooster crowing.

This was our second C2C crossing and we did not want to stay in the same place we had stayed two years before. We booked this hotel based on reviews. THIS WAS OUR EXPERIENCE: On arrival, I asked the lady escorting us to our room about Wi-Fi connection and was told the password was held at the bar. I went to the bar to ask for the password but the barperson couldn’t find it. She thought another guest had not returned it and she wasn’t privy to it. She asked a gentleman (I presumed he was the owner/manager or person of authority) who was sitting in the bar enjoying a drink with some patrons. He said he’d bring it up to us later. After an hour or so it still had not materialised so I returned again to the bar to find a different surly barperson. I explained the situation to him but he shrugged and said he couldn’t find it. (He was busy serving a large gathering of walkers who had just finished a fund raising event and was not interested in a password.) I gave up at that point and headed for the shower. Extensive instructions were written in the en-suite regarding adjusting the shower temperature but despite following them to the letter we still found the water scorching and could not get it cooler, so we resorted to ducking in and out as much as possible. Menu for our evening meal was written on the chalk board above the bar, so we had to choose our meal before being shown to the dining room and try to get a drink from the aforementioned surly barperson. The meal itself could best be described as below average. Breakfast-time was another experience. We prefer a cereal/toast breakfast, but were surprised when there was no serve yourself table. Instead we ‘placed ‘our order – half a dozen cornflakes in the bottom of a small bowl, half a glass of juice, a couple of grapefruit segments, one slice of toast and a cup of tea. Admittedly we probably could have requested more but we felt we were ‘tolerated’ rather than welcome guests. The highlight of the stay was watching the cockerel strutting his stuff among the hens scratching in the fenced off area. Not somewhere I would stay again. Stayed 13th June 2015

Nice bar food.

Ignore all the old critical comments about this lovely pub. It's been under new management for 12 months. It was clean and very welcoming, and the food was excellent. Unfortunately, as an old but attractive estate owned pub, it does suffer from a lack of en-suite facilities - more than made up for by the presence of proper bath rooms and the opportunity of a good soak! Well worth the extra 2 miles walk from Glaisdale

We were welcomed on our arrival and shown straight to our room. We enjoyed the Pub in the evening and had a great nights sleep. Carol even let us have our breakfast a little early as we had a long walk the next day.
We enjoyed our stay here (May 2011)
L&V Western Australia, left on 19 June 2011
Room was good and an excellent meal in the hotel pub. They served an inadequate breakfast tray for our early morning start.

Stayed end of September 2010. If your looking for a warm cosy stay after a hard days walk, then this isn't the place for you. The en suite double felt damp, as did the bed. This was definately the worst accommodation we had on the c to c. This property needs some serious investment to bring if anywhere near to being acceptable, £70 was a joke! we had some outstanding accommodation for that amount of money. Had we had transport we would not have stayed.
Alan & Adelaide , left on 30 September 2010
We arrived, after 21 miles, to find pub closed (at 5.00 in early September: probably close on peak time for passing travellers in need of refreshment!). Our friends, who were staying, were told that she would serve them and us after she had finished her tea. “When might that be?” “When I’m finished”. We waited half an hour and no sign of service. She said she doesn’t have much time to herself: well she’s certainly going the right way to ensure that she has a very large about of time to herself. In any event presumably in the winter months she hardly has the continual irritation of customers. It looked like a charming place but unless you are masochistic don’t give it the benefit of your custom. There were numerous other walkers also being turned away so it wasn’t as if she didn’t like us specifically.
Chris Sale, left on 11 September 2010
Found the front door locked against us as we arrived at 5.30 after a 20 mile walk. After ringing the door bell, phoning and knocking we were eventually admitted by a very grumpy woman. Not very welcoming! However the bar had great ambience and good food.

Stayed here night of Sat 17th July. This hotel/ pub is situated in a lovely area of the village with a large garden at the front. This was probably a lovely establishment 20 yrs ago but unfortunately not now. Our double ensuite room was tired and shabby, dust on picture rail, skirting boards and at least 10 yrs worth of dust and cobwebs behind the wall mounted heater. Carpet was filthy and no attempt had been made to vacuum under the furniture. The portable tv was at least 20 yrs old and had 2 buttons missing. Mould and rust in the ensuite. The only 2 good things about this place are the evening meals and breakfasts. If you value accommodation over food stay somewhere else.Even walk a couple of extra miles to Grosmont.

The Inn is old and feels it, but this does add to the charm of the place. Our room was adequate and comfortable but the real bonus comes in the excellent food in the dining room. We enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here in early May 2010 on our C2C walk because the desirable places in Glaisdale were already booked. The additional 30 minutes or so were a bit challenging at the end of the long day (including negotiating the medieval stone path through the woods from Glaisdale) but we were glad we came. The hotel is charming, the food excellent, and service impeccable. Agree that the rooms are small and old (the floor in our room wasn't level!) but that is part of the charm of an old pub hotel, and the room was clean and warm on a wet night. Recommended over much in Glaisdale.

worth walking from Grosmont. We did the C2C E to W and so it was our first night. A lovely setting and the most amazing food and portions. One of our most memorable stays on the C2C
Val and Rob Hill, left on 29 May 2010
Nice enough people, however place is tired and in need of money spent.
Bob McNeish, left on 28 May 2010
Nice place, very nice room with a lovely view. Great dinner (enormous portions) and breakfast. Recommended.
Stephanie, left on 11 January 2010
This was definitely our favourite stay- it is fantastic and in a lovely setting. The owners were really friendly and we had a lovely room with great views. The evening meal was excellent as was the breakfast. Would definitely recommend staying here rather than going onto Grosmont.
Sarah & Colin, Suffolk, left on 08 August 2009
Great vegetarian dinner! One of the best on our route. Room was ok, but there was no shower only a bath.
Karl en Petra, left on 15 June 2006
We will definitely return here sometime as we loved the place for the high standard of food, the beer and the fact that the hosts were so welcoming.This more than makes up for the rooms being in need of a bit of redecoration. Everywhere was clean, the rooms warm, the showers piping hot (the communal bath very deep!) and our two meals here were really delicious! Breakfasts were huge and tasty.....would recommend that walkers do the walk to High Hawsker and then come back here for second's worth it. The walk into Robin Hood's Bay is less of a trek on the last day, and for the indulgent, you could return here for a third night! Room 5 is lovely.
