I love this pub and always feel welcome, have enjoyed a ploughman's and would definitely have again - the pub quiz is brilliant especially 'Baz Mati the frustrated pub singer!!! The toilets are the best in Banbury.

Thank you for taking the time to place a lovely review, Our Sunday afternoon quiz is brilliant and something a bit different. our quiz master Topaz Clyde-Browne promises to "invite" another alta-ego next month so anything could happen.

A true real ale pub, we carry a great variety of ever changing beers. Our food is reasonably priced, traditional and varied with an excellent Sunday lunch and a take away lunch menu as well. In the evening, we have a varied menu on Friday evening and the rest of the week, you are welcome to bring in a takeaway. Open 7 days a week (from 2.00pm on Mondays).
