Came for a meal with family, sadly disappointed with the poor food. Was told of a 30min wait when ordering food - that's ok, but to wait 1:20 is terrible. Staff couldn't really care,went TO use their toilets to hear the chef shouting at the staff. POOR STAFF - poor management Simply - terrible AVOID IF IN BANBURY

In October I gave this place a good review for cheap and cheerful value for money food. However in December our experiences have been terrible - they don't seem to be able to get anything right any more. Wrong drinks, wrong food, poor food etc etc....... We complained to the manager at one point and got a voucher for a... More

Now the first we visited this pub it was nice. But for this time (as we have friends down there and we had such a nice meal last time) we found the place had gone down hill. We ordered our meal to find that they didn't have any buns for the burgers. We ordered seven meals and when they came... More

Never been here before, popped in for something to eat whilst shopping, is it is near the shopping centre. But we would not recomend this pub- they had ran out of fish & chips, so we had chicken instead ...overcooked chicken, cheap chips & rock hard peas. It took half an hour to arrive. The tables & plates were dirty.... More

There is nothing positive to say about this place. The staff are downright surly and hostile (if you can get served at all), and the beer is terrible. Avoid.

This is in a great location for a quick drink and/or a bite to eat if you are in the centre of Banbury. It is not a posh place by any standards, but the food is really excellent value for money. There are a couple of members of staff who are exceptionally friendly and helpful. You really can't go wrong... More
