I have been to the pinto lounge many times and I have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. It always has such a good atmosphere and the staff are always so friendly and helpful.

Today we had lunch, last weekend was breakfast. Both were yummy! There is a really good menu choice; my partner is vegetarian and it takes him for ever to decide, as he's not use to such a selection. The best news for us though is that it is dog friendly in the front bar. Recommend it. Can't see how it... More

We stopped off for coffee here during a quick visit to Banbury town centre. The service was friendly and quick. The atmosphere was noisy with chatter from other customers and we really enjoy the quirky decor. Our food arrived reasonably soon after ordering and was served hot and presented well. Good value and what we expect for each visit.

Looking for somewhere to have lunch during a shopping trip this looked like a popular venue with an enticing menu. After locating a table, we placed our orders at the bar. The happy friendly staff soon delivered our food which was very tasty and nicely presented. Would be very happy to return

What an absolute gem of a place. The brunch menu is unusual and creative with some classics and some items I've never seen before. The drinks menu alone is to die for! It was worth the visit for the 'Berry Delight' alone. The staff were friendly and chatty, the food arrived very quickly. All in all a great experience. This... More

The service was one the best I have experienced in a very long time. Food was amazing I would love to recommend the superhero burger which was just exquisite. I felt very welcomed the moment I walked in the lounge and found the staff very well trained and polite.
