The cocktails in here are amazing I just don't think the layout is great. The bar is right by the front door so it's hard to get past and also there's very limited seating and the outdoor area is far too big so not great in the winter. Very cold inside.

I just ate lunch and enjoyed a beverage, really quirky shabby chic decor and really friendly and helpful staff. Pizza "works" was great and the chef couldn't have been more flexible, highly recommended

This is a cracking place with a great atmosphere and range of drinks and food. The staff are very friendly and there are often events on such as music evenings and quizes. The garden is really charming and quite a sun trap in the afternoons. They also serve coffee and cake and offer free wifi.

Nice place with great seating and helpful staff. But found the multiple dogs running around a put off and quite annoying. The cocktail was ok.

Despite the name, the wine choice is very limited. There are no wines displayed and I didn't get to taste before I had the bottled I orders. I also was surprised by the foods they served, but overall I would go again. A nice more mature crowd and nicely decorated but limited seating inside. A pleasant change to the other... More

It is a nice little pub in Banbury. The staff is very pleasant and helping. Nice for small parties and groups. It had an open backyard

I popped in for a drink with a friend on Saturday evening, about 9pm. Although it felt busy and atmospheric we were still able to find a seat. For two drinks (a glass of white wine and a bloody mary) the bill was £11.50 which I felt was quite steep, but the chap who served us was really friendly and... More

Good solid bar. Good beer selection and a lovely beer garden with plenty of life when I was there on Saturday

popped in for lunch Monday with our two young children to try out the Dirty Dogs, along with a side order of chips, sweet potato chips and onion rings, all equally yummy, Gold Star award all round given! There is a lovely feel to the place when moving around. The staff were all happy, friendly and welcoming. The recent refurb... More
