“Best steak in Banbury”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Owners Phil and Karen Slater and their son Jacob offer a warm friendly welcome to this family run hotel and steak house. Phil is a butcher by trade and really knows how to select and cook the best quality meat. Meals are good value and quality with generous portions. Five minutes from Banbury town centre and located just off junction 11 of the M40 it's 45 minutes from Birmingham international airport, 90 minutes from Heathrow, 40 minutes from Oxford city centre, close to the cotswolds, 20 minutes from Stratford upon avon, warwick and Royal leamington spa so an ideal central location for exploring the area.

Every year my dad and I travel down to the Grand Prix at Silverstone, and every Saturday night of that trip we end up in this place for a meal. To us this is just great, traditional food at reasonable prices. Menu has a great choice and there should be something for everyone. Every year we have been served by the same lady (not sure of name, blonde hair) and the service is always excellent. Food cooked to perfection. We didn't stay in the hotel so I can't comment on that, but it's fair to say we'll be back for a meal next year!

We have just come back from a lovely weekend in Banbury. The Bowling Green is a lovely , family run small hotel. The food on the Saturday night was excellent as was the breakfast and Sunday lunch.
The hotel is quiet, clean and extremely well run. Nothing was too much trouble.
We will definitely be staying again.
Thank you Karen and Phil for a great time.

Well had to dig out for a room near to Banbury and as I only needed an overnight stay I wasn't too concerned about what I booked,,,im usually a slave to best western points. The Bowling Gereen was clean compact warm,,,even had sky sports in the room. Good value and food very good indeed. Breakfast was spot on just enough but really good quality items. I would recommend it if you need a stay in Banbury. Funny as I write this review the ones at the side of mine bear out what im saying,,,lol

Greeting was welcoming, clean and tidy accommodation. Clean and basic rooms, had free WiFi and Sky TV. No double rooms available so had to settle with single beds, not the most comfortable of nights sleep. Breakfast consisted of full English breakfast, not the best I have tasted, lacked quantity, 2 eggs, 2 overdone bacon, 2 mushrooms cut in half, tomato and 1 small sausage. Other available breakfast items, cereal, orange juice, yogurt. For the price I would have settled for an alternate hotel had there been one available at short notice.

A bit tricky to find without satnav (come on Banbury council, let them put a sign up on the main road!) Lovely food, very clean. Best bacon and eggs I have had for years with eggs from their own chickens. Be aware you can't check in until 6pm.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room away from the fire doors as they are quite noisy.
