It is unusual these days that I am excited or inspired by a menu or the food that it then yields. Not sure if this is because old age is making me curmudgeonly or because I'm visiting the wrong restaurants. But yesterday at the Witney Horseshoes it was suddenly different; a really creative and extensive menu ( in fact four... More

12 of us went for dinner on a Tuesday night. The service was superb. The food, all served at the same time, was fabulous. Starters: Spiced Duck Samosa is excellent, Cornish scallops were to die for. Mains: always 4-5 specials in addition to the main menu, I had the superb venison loin, friends had the Duo of Game; Roasted Breast... More

Third time here and excellent every time. Food, service and atmosphere great, and the weekday lunch fixed price is unbelievable value considering the quality of the food.

We have been before and enjoyed ourselves so decided to go back. This time we went for Sunday lunch, great food and plenty of it, excellent service and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely go back when next in town and would recommend to friends and family.

Good food and service but they don't allow children after 7 pm (sometimes) really annoying as I've been a few times with my very mature 8 yr old who we always go out with. But suddenly they have this ridiculous policy. It means that we will now avoid this very atmospheric and good eaterie.

We went there a couple of years ago and it was terrible, it has now been taken over by new management, what an improvement. My wife arranged for a surprise family meal for 11, to celebrate my 60th birthday. She chose it because it is rated the best in Witney on TripAdvisor & our Sons frequently use it and it's... More

Ok. We are biased. This is, after all our local pub. We moved here in 2016 and spend as much time in here as is possible. But here's the truth. The food is fantastic. If they have sausage rolls on the menu go for it. They are a must. The liver starter is to die for. Even if you feel... More

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
