3 Horseshoes, Garsington has re-opened under new management and has just started serving food again. This is a warm, welcoming, homely country pub, located in an idyllic village setting. It is set in spacious rural grounds, with orchard and kiddies play area. The food is excellent, and the menu varied, with something for everyone. I can recommend the Homemade Burgers, Shoulder of Lamb, Bubble and Squeak, Jamaican Bananas and Apple Crumble. And dont miss the Sunday Carvery!!! Definitely somewhere to call into on a cold winters night, to enjoy a pint or two, good food, friendly hospitality and the warmth of an open fire. Can't wait to enjoy a drink and bite to eat outside in the summer either. Whatever you want, food, company, good ale, first class service and a homely ambience. This pub's got it all.

This pub is indeed in darkness but am told it is due to re-open towards the end of the year with new owners. Can't wait as this seems such a lovely pub!

We went for a walk around Garsington then to our dismay found the pub all in darkness - at 12.15 - Saturday lunchtime. So did not get to savour their food!

FABULOUS FOOD! I would recommend this pub and its food 1000 times over! Fish cakes are to die for, and the leek and pea risotto was the best risotto I've ever tasted! Steak was cooked to perfection and the beef and mushroom pie was packed full of meat, and all for such a reasonable price! The pub itself is quaint but modern, with a relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Great service - superb all round! And in response to "Duran" on 19th Feb,I experienced no obstacles in reaching the ladies loos - maybe a few less fish and chips and you'd fit in there too!

After reading such good reviews on the Three Horseshoes, Garsington, we decided to try it out. Such disappointment. Food was AWFUL. Fish and chips (on the 'specials' board) was unskinned, undercooked and revolting. Accompanying peas were inedible and the chips were limp and soggy. It waxs almost an assault course to use the ladies' toilets as there was JUST enough room to open each door, then it was an extremely tight squeeze to close it again.

Service 2nd to none. Really lovely & friendly staff. We came to Oxford for our anniversary weekend & looked up 'places to eat in Oxford' on the internet; having checked reviews we decided to book. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent! My Wife's Haddock & Chips was the best I have ever tasted. Beats 'The Magpies' in Whitby (Rick Stein recommended).

Very Nice Mini Thai Fishcakes. Good Quality. Fish Clean (Cod) with no smell indicating freshness. I like the batter. Good Food in this village pub - certainly comparable to restaurant quality.

It is a remarkable achievement to have established 'the shoes' as a thriving pub once more in little over 6 months. Ally & Tegs' hard work is certainly paying off to the delight of the customers. Excellent homemade food is guaranteed, as is value for money & the relaxed atmosphere. Definitely well worth a visit.

It's brilliant to have a local restaurant that serves such great veggie food - there is lots of choice & no mushroom stroganoff in sight! The food is all homemade & very tasty - the quality of vegetarian food has even tempted my definitely 'non-vegetarian' husband! I'd definitely recommend the sweet potato & pea curry - it's a vegetarian must!!
