The service was fantastic again. It has the right balance of formality/professionalism and informality that compliments the modern dining style of the extensive menu. There is so much of a delicious choice that it can take some time to come to a decision! Having dined here for a few years, it is noticeable over the last 12 months (or so)... More

Went with a large group for our Club annual social get together. We've been for a few years now and the fixed price menu has stayed at the same price for at least the last 3. There's always a good choice including vegetarian and gluten free options. What always amazes me is that there's no need to pre-book meals, people... More

We've been to this pub//restaurant several times before, and have never had a bad meal. However, last Saturday things were slightly less than perfect. Firstly we were disappointed that some of the dishes were sold out - but maybe this was the norm for a Saturday evening? (We normally come on a Sunday or on a weekday evening.) The sea... More

I am very fond of this pub/restaurant. It's a gorgeous traditional venue: smarter than most and full of warmth and character - Cotswold stone, roaring fire, wooden beams. It's tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Banbury has never been renowned for restaurants and there aren't many to chose from if you want something perhaps a little special. But this will more... More

Dear Mark F, Thank you for your time reviewing the Moon & Sixpence - I am guessing your review relates to Ian F's - though when you say, "I cannot make any comparison to previous staff as suggested by another review" I'm unclear if there is a connection or not. As I have mentioned in a response to another review... More

We wanted to go out for Sunday lunch and decided The moon and Sixpence sounded the place to try as we hadn't been before. It certainly didn't disappoint,we had excellent service and fabulous food. We will definitely be going again to try the rest of the menu. We'd highly recommend the whole experience

The person writing the review on staff attitude obviously knows Patrick. Sam is brilliant at his job . Mastering his role and always the best frontman in the business . We have never had a bad meal there and return repeatedly as do all we know who have ever eaten there . Sam and Hylton do an excellent job with... More

I love this place, the food is great, the decor is superb but we need to bring Patrick back. I know we can't but Sam isn't the right person for the job. He hasn't got the same presence or attitude. Scruffy to look at and quite impatient with customers who don't order as quickly as he would like. Seriously annoyed... More

Dear Ian, Having read your comments I am left wondering why on earth you have felt the need to 'share' this on TripAdvisor? In your 5 star review of the Moon & Sixpence (3rd May 2015) you actually compliment Sam, "Can't praise it highly enough, from Patrick, Sam and needless to say the best chef around". If you had/have an... More

We visited Xmas eve for dinner. We went last year and throughly enjoy it but this visit was a bit lacking. I'd been online looking at the menus prior to arriving and we had a good idea what we wanted. When we arrive there was no one in as we booked the first sitting. The fire wasn't lit and it... More
