We visited this restaurant for Saturday lunch on the strength of the reviews. The menu offered a fair choice for all three courses. The food was beautifully cooked and well presented and the service was excellent with the waiting staff friendly and helpful. We were surprised that the restaurant was almost empty - perhaps because it was a little difficult... More

It was Friday lunchtime with hardly anyone there, usually a bad sign considering that the establishment was in the centre of the town. The food was very average, we would not visit again. The staff however were quite pleasant.

We had a fairly large group and there were several other larger groups in too, but the food was delivered altogether in resonable time and was delicious and hot - staff were in good humour too. Resonably priced and very tasty. Would definitely recommend

On arrival we were served with drinks and once all of the party had arrived we were shown to our table. The waitress took our orders and we were all surprised how big every... More

Booked a table here as we were staying locally. I'd actually read some old reviews and thought we were heading to a pub famous for it's pies, so when we got the menu I was a bit surprised by the choices. Anyway we decided to share a mushroom and Stilton gratin starter which was absolutely delicious (wouldn't have minded a... More

We booked the coach and horses on recommendation for a friend's birthday last night, a table of 8, and we were not disappointed. The food was lovely, the service was spot on (not rushed but no delay) the staff were friendly and the price was reasonable. Highly recommend.

I've been here a fair few times and every visit was perfect. The food is so lovely, the lunch menu offers a 2 course for about £10.95 or 3 for £13.95. The quality and portions are not compromised unlike other places that offer Prix Fixe menu's. The staff.....ALWAYS so friendly and helpful and no matter how busy they always have... More

This place just carries on offering excellent food and service to the people of Banbury and today did that for our bowling group again - a Christmas lunch to savour ; not only is excellent turkey and pud available, but succulent pork loin, preceded today by a most inventive creation of field mushrooms with goats cheese and walnuts, and followed...
