We come here for the buffet lunch. It is very good quality food and great value for the money. Freshly cooked and lots of choice. Great pudding selection too. Highly recommended.

Went with three others for a business lunch. Food good and the’crunchie’ pudding is not to be missed. Always busy and a little rushed but a Banbury institution.
