My family and I had Sunday lunch here yesterday to celebrate my father's 93rd birthday. There were 8 adults and 3 young children in our group.

My wife and I dined here tonight. Very warm welcome and a superb meal. The staff were all excellent and made the whole evening a delight. The stroganoff and the lamb pave were beautifully cooked and presented. £55 for 2 including a bottle of wine. Good value. We will certainly be coming back again.

A great stop off betwen Banbury and Stratford. Great menu and excellent food in a smart stylish pub with a nice garden on a sunny day. I would definitely recommend a visit. Tuborg and san miguel are service at just the right temperature and they always have a warm welcome

We stopped here for lunch on a Friday afternoon and sat in the garden. The service was very good. My husband ordered a burger while I ordered a steak sandwich on white bread. However when it arrived my bread had been toasted which I had not asked for and the menu had stated bread not toasted bread. So although very... More

From the welcoming decor to the delicious menu this pub/restaurant is a delight!! My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary meal and were so impressed. The lovely French château decoration was delightful and the menu sophisticated and exciting. We ate inside but the garden is lovely also. And , the service is excellent.
