“My new best friend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

It doesn't take 'rocket science' to run a successful pub even in the present economic climate. A friendly smile, polite service and exceptional value and the great British public will find you and support you.
Well, The Three Horse Shoes have got this formula right and the pub was buzzing on the Tuesday night we had booked.
'Best Friend Tuesday' is a brilliant promotion.You take along a friend; you pay for your own meal and the pub pays for your friend's meal!
We took our best friends along and it worked! 3 of us enjoyed excellent fish whilst the fourth member enjoyed pasta.We ordered drinks - 2 beers and 2 large glasses of wine and, including a decent tip for the excellent service, the total bill came to £46.00
There is a nice 'pub' feel with a well stocked bar (dogs allowed in the bar area) with tables either near the bar or in an adjoing room.Both the young man and young lady who looked after us had a great sense of humour and appeared to be enjoying their work.When we left we even got a friendly 'bye bye, see you again' from the young lady behind the bar. And she is right - she WILL see us again!

“Welcome first good meal in a pub garden this year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

A busy bank holiday weekend but the service and food at this central Witney pub were excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a return trip.

“A Great find in Witney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

After calling in on our way home, we decided to eat at the Three Horse Shoes in Witney and how glad we are, its was a great find. We shared the deli board making it up of exactly what we wanted the choice was endless. And all very reasonably price. The atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable and all the staff friendly and polite. We will be back and we hope it will be soon!
