About Horseshoe Taxis

Proprietors John and Sheila Huffer take great pride in Horseshoe Taxis' reputation as a first-class operation serving both local individuals and businesses.

This passion for passenger transport has run through the generations, since John's grandfather gained a 'certificate of confidence' in the early 1900s, enabling him to drive the local doctor and squire. He then went on to import his own car and worked as a chauffeur.

East Devon Taxis

When John and Sheila ran the Horseshoe Restaurant in Honiton (now Bar 102), they bought some cars for John's father to use for a small taxi service. At the time they had no idea that Sheila would need to take over as the business became more and more successful - resulting in Horseshoe Taxis making history when it became the first East Devon firm outside of Exmouth to gain a taxi licence.

John and Sheila have a loyal and happy team of eight, many of whom have been with the company for over five years. Training is important so that everyone works to the same high standards, and this includes learning to keep vehicles absolutely spotless.

In November 2010 Horseshoe Taxis incorporated K Cars of Honiton when owner Ken Arber semi-retired. However, with 21 years of taxi driving, his skills were too good to lose, so John and Sheila persuaded him to stay on as a part-timer employee.

2011 has seen the absorption of another local firm, Blackdown Cars. Owner Simon Smith has 13 years experience as a taxi driver and is continuing with Horseshoe Taxis as Operations Manager, to support the management of the business.
