We stopped off in Witney en route to Asthall and found this pub for a bit of lunch. The ambience on this Friday lunchtime was lively without being too much and the staff were friendly and efficient. The menu had some good options and there were specials of the day in addition. The food was a very very good 4/5... More

We went here on valentines day. The scallop starter was very nice but our mains although tasty were not cheap and both my salmon and the steak in the steak and ale pie were a little dry. Good sides with both main courses. All food was well seasoned. Nice atmosphere in the pub. Usually on a Tuesday night they have... More

Four of us had lunch at this pub on a Monday- quite busy for February. Excellent menu- both specials and al a carte. Freshly cooked so a little wait for each course but well worth it- large portions and very tasty food. Will definitely go back soon.

Called in twice and, on the second night, we decided to eat there. Lovely real fire and friendly staff and locals. The manager Tim managed to fit us in even though they were fully booked for meals. Had the haddock and it was lovely and fresh. Large portions and good choice of reals ales and wine. Would highly recommend. Thanks... More

Visited this pub in January for a late lunch as we were looking for somewhere good to eat in Witney. The menu is varied and interesting, the food was excellent and the service was really very special. There are lots of gluten-free options and the burger, in particular, was delicious. We will certainly be visiting again.

The waitresses were amazing with my 2 little ones- I was a bit worried about bringing them but they made us feel really welcome. I was really impressed with how they engaged with my girls - aged 4 and 6 and gave them colouring books to keep them occupied. Thank goodness we had them to keep them occupied as service... More

Great food, can't fault it at all. Same with the service and really good value expected pay more. My only criticism is the small bar area, if you're letting people sit at the bar with absolutely no room to get served, it makes it extremely awkward The food was excellent though.

Bit of a weird layout, some will see that as quirky, others not. Great food, there seemed to be many places to eat in this town on a Saturday night, however most were booked. We managed to score half a table for 2, and we were not left disappointed.

Had a roast here twice now, once just before Christmas and once today. It really is the best roast I've had in Witney. Great portion size, nice and hot food and plates. Even comes with extra gravy in a jug. Plenty of different veg, including cauliflower cheese (best thing ever!) I have had other meals at the three horseshoes before... More
