Lovely quaint pub, lovely inside, staff very friendly, nicely furnished and very comfortable. Has three rooms but I have never stayed there. Drinks a little in the expensive side but it is worth a visit

We stayed here for two nights in December when we went on the Xmas lights trail at Blenheim Palace (also recommended, really magical!) Quirky rooms, very comfortable and friendly staff. The lunch was amazing, but order one sausage baguette between two would be my advice!...More

I have to say that for a business Christmas dinner with B&Q last night, the food was excellent, the service, superb. All too often, catering for larger numbers can fall short in quality, not so last night, I will certainly recommend your restaurant to friends,...More

The meal was excellent, the service was excellent but a small bottle of coke the same size as the tinned drink was £2.50. Other drinks were a little more expensive than sold in the local area but soft drinks are well over the top. This...More

It was a bit slow to get off the ground but that was partly down to us, having a good old laugh and clearing a bottle of Champagne . Having eventually given in our order it came piping hot and very nicely presented. The food...More

Settled in the heart of Banbury The Three Pigeons Inn has been at the very heart of the community since it first opened its doors back in the 17th Century. It has created so many memories for customers of all ages and taken its rightful place in the hearts and minds of the many residents both in the town and in the surrounding areas. The Three Pigeons Inn has being lovingly restored to its former glory and has now achieved it's first AA Rosette. It is now a free house with guest accommodation, with our main focus being our fabulous food. We offer modern English cuisine prepared freshly using locally sourced produce by our award winning Head Chef. Throughout its vast restoration project, and since opening, the motto at The Three Pigeons Inn has always been to do everything to the best of our ability, the end result speaks for itself. We have now passed that motto on to our team, whether it's a morning cappuccino next to one of our coal burners, or a three course meal in our Winter Garden, The Three Pigeons Inn will always deliver 10 out of 10. The Three Pigeons Inn is opening its wings to invite you into areas of the building previously hidden from sight. They are now being used to create a space for you to relax and enjoy the company of friends and family. What you will find in place of the old neglected lounge is a transformation to the extraordinary. The bar will be a central feature so that our friendly staff are never too far away. Three guest bedrooms have been added along with a new Kitchen and Beer cellar. The gardens have been landscaped and a function room has been built.
