This was our first visit to Banbury and on our first night we dined here as it was right next to our hotel. The food was excellent coudn't fault a thing and the staff were very polite. We even went back the next night, but only for drinks, we tried a few of the cocktails which were very nice.
I would recommend anyone visiting Banbury to dine here, the food, atmosphere and staff make it a really nice place to relax as a couple or a big group.

I had my 21st birthday party here with my family, in the bottom restaurant. It was so nice, they set all the tables up how i wanted them, my mum did personalise it tho. The food was amazing. we all had the 3 course set menu. The cocktails and the shots were amazing to.
We all had a brilliant time .

Dined here last Saturday.

I love the atmosphere and decor, even when the bar area is bustling, the dining area is secluded and romantic.

The main menu is a bit basic, normal grill food burgers ect... Not really a le carte
So we both chose from the fixed price menu £15.50 for 3 courses.

Soup was LUSH tomato and basil my fave, would have been better if the bread was warm :-)
I had salmon again, SOO yummy and i don't even like fish.
My partner had steak which was excellent quality and perfectly cooked. He wanted pepper corn sauce which they bought out quick. I ate some of his tomato as it was enormous (see pic)

This time i didn't have the lemon tart but i did try my partners and it tasted a bit old.
I had the cheese board which needs a bit of work. I was given a huge plate of cheese and crackers (I HATE CRACKERS).

I would have preferred a small selection of cheese, some chutney and a couple of slices of crusty bread mayb some grapes.

Service was great and even earned a tip, which is rare from me.

**Needs work**

Cheese board/pudding menu on the set price menu

Had a lovely meal at a very reasonable price, two courses £12.50. Risotto starter and Salmon for mains both excellent, husband had steak, cooked to perfection. Staff very attentive and helpful.
The decor as an ex-church was most unusual, and a great display of bottles nicely lit behind the bar. Good service, food, price and atmosphere, recommend for a great meal in Banbury.

We had a girls night out here , 10 of us and did book a table . Most of us chose the fixed price menu at £12.50 for 2 courses and £15.50 for 3 courses. Nice sized portions hot and not one person complained. The mushroom risotto starter was lovely hot and well cooked . A nice range of cocktails to end the evening . Didn't try the puds but those that did complimented the manager. Good service at a good price.
