Went here for a family meal, the service was great, the food was great and the setting is brilliant. The only thing I would say is that it is very loud in here and if you want a quiet meal or to talk it may not be ideal you kind of find yourself shouting over other tables

I stayed the night after finding this pub via Booking.com and decided that for £70 for the night it was worth a try. I stayed in room 1 as pictured and the room was done to a very high standard. The pub itself is lovely and the food was top drawer, however not much under £13. Staff were great and... More

Had a beautiful meal here. Beautifully cooked and tasted great. Had the mixed meat roast and my husband had the sirloin steak. A little pricey but worth it. Pudding was delicious Had the brandy snap basket with raspberry sorbet, was to die for. Excellent service.

This is a typical old world type English country pub located beside a canal in lovely countryside. It seems to be very popular with locals and we were with 2 people who visit it regularly. The lunch menu looked good to start with but there were too many dishes deep fried and most had chips of one kind or another.... More

We have stayed here before and not experienced issues. Until this time :( We were located in the double room (number 2). Don't get me wrong, initially, everything was fine, friendly check in, facilities within the room perfectly adequate (enjoyed the availability of cereals within the room, teas, coffee, two bottles of water and orange juice in the fridge, as...

Went for a social drink on Sunday haven't been for many months but surprised at the renovations. However what shocked me was the staff and perhaps they know who they are stirring trouble over alleged Facebook comments. Wonder if it is the same staff member who shopped Robbie? Anyway be careful what you say or do or haven't said or... More

We've had Sunday lunch here a number of times now. The good is excellent and I can highly recommend the mixed roast!! If you book the later sitting they will let you reserve a dinner which is a great idea and works really well!! We've never been disappointed! Also the staff are extremely friendly and professional!

I always enjoy eating here, especially for their Sunday roast.this is the best place to eat in the Banbury area and the staff always get it right. It's not too fussy and a relaxing environment to enjoy a nice meal and a drink
