Visit Banbury a lot with work and was a big fan of this restaurant until about 2 weeks ago. I asked if I could substitute the chips which came with my steak for sweet potato which was a side on another dish. I was advised that this was not possible as everything is pre made! Instead I ordered a sign... More

Recently went for a family meal. The food was delicious and very reasonable priced. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food didn't take long to arrive at all. It was piping hot and fresh. Would recommend.

Very attentive staff, we also managed to get a whole section to ourselves as it was a quiet night. Steak was lovely, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Wife was very happy with the catch of the day. Recommended.

We had a lovely lunch with my family. They didn't have a kids menu but offered to make kids portion sizes of some of the items on the menu. My husband had the Sunday roast which he said was delicious and the kids enjoyed their meals. I had the vegetarian option of the gnocchi with stilton sauce and walnuts, it... More

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
