“Terrible!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

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. Tomato ketchup bottle in the condiment tray was empty. The whole place seemed quite grubby. The staff were unhelpful, & they were stood the wrong side of the bar drinking, with cigarettes behind their ears.

“Truly dreadful”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

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.

“terrible service”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

waited for 30 mins for a coffee and a breakfast, neither one of them showed up, when we asked we were told there was a long delay so we joined the que of other people who were waiting for a refund, we were just one of many that day that did not get served. no apology from the lady in charge she was too busy sorting out the refunds !

“excellent value for money!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

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 based on the prices they charge - and you can get an even better deal if you use your Tesco clubcard vouchers!
