Only came here for the 1st time about a month ago and I was very impressed and vowed to be back sooner rather than later. So on the 23rd of Feb we were back eager to show my girlfriends parents the quality of this place and the didn't disappoint. I started with the Panko Prawns, which I could have eaten... More

OK this must be the most difficult establishment to find due to lack of signeage from the road. To find it in the dark give yourself five stars. Investments in an actual lit sign would be good. This is a husband and wife run hotel/ B and B and do they work for their money. It looks the 7 days... More

Stayed at this hotel/restaurant whilst on a trip to Silverstone MotoGP. Looked deserted when we arrived but we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. Ate here on Saturday and Sunday evening and the only problem on Sunday evening was whether to choose the same we had had on Saturday which was delicious, or go for something different.... More

Phil is a butcher by trade and really knows how to select and cook the best quality meat. Meals are good value and quality with generous portions. Five minutes from Banbury town centre and located just off junction... More

Every year my dad and I travel down to the Grand Prix at Silverstone, and every Saturday night of that trip we end up in this place for a meal. To us this is just great, traditional food at reasonable prices. Menu has a great choice and there should be something for everyone. Every year we have been served by... More

We have just come back from a lovely weekend in Banbury. The Bowling Green is a lovely , family run small hotel. The food on the Saturday night was excellent as was the breakfast and Sunday lunch. The hotel is quiet, clean and extremely well run. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be staying again. Thank you Karen... More

Greeting was welcoming, clean and tidy accommodation. Clean and basic rooms, had free WiFi and Sky TV. No double rooms available so had to settle with single beds, not the most comfortable of nights sleep. Breakfast consisted of full English breakfast, not the best I have tasted, lacked quantity, 2 eggs, 2 overdone bacon, 2 mushrooms cut in half, tomato... More

A bit tricky to find without satnav (come on Banbury council, let them put a sign up on the main road!) Lovely food, very clean. Best bacon and eggs I have had for years with eggs from their own chickens. Be aware you can't check in until 6pm.
