Mark Mosely, owner of The Three Horseshoes in Harston and The Navigator in Little Shelford chatted to Explorer about
honing the classic combo of spicy food and a pint
Q: How long have you lived and worked in Cambridge?
A: I’ve been at The Navigator for four years and we’re coming into our third year at The Three Horseshoes but I’ve lived in
Cambridge for about 18 years. My parents and grandparents all ran pubs in the region and I used to run The Railway Tavern
in Great Shelford with my father so it’s in my blood
Q: What are the main differences between your two pubs?
A: The Three Horseshoes is more of a dining destination, although there is an area for people to drink at the bar. The
décor is very fresh and modern, whereas The Navigator has more of a traditional pub atmosphere. They have the same menus
although the two Thai chefs each have their own special dishes. The garden at the Three Horseshoes is really big and it’s great
for al fresco dining
Q: Do you source any ingredients locally?
A: Yes we get meat from a butcher in Sawston, B. Searle and Sons, but we naturally have to go further afield for the
authentic Thai ingredients!
Q: What about the drinks at the Three Horseshoes?
A: We work with a wine expert to ensure we have wines that complement spicy food. It’s a Greene King pub so we have a
lot of their ales. One of the reasons Thai food in pubs works so well is because you can have a pint of real ale with your meal.
We also stock Singha and Chang lagers and we’ve just started stocking a Thai rum and a spirit made in Thailand from
molasses and rice
Q: What special offers are available?
A: Monday to Wednesday evenings at both pubs we offer two courses for £10 with chicken, beef or pork, or two for £12 with
duck or prawns. There’s also 10% off takeaways over £15
