This is our second time here, and it is still a great place for an evening meal. (It does lunches, but we were too busy then) Not sure how he manages to serve at the bar and take the table orders, but he seems to manage. The set menu is excellent value, and we could only manage 2 courses as... More

Visited this place for 2nd time while staying at Whatley Hall. Good menu choices and food came on time and well presented and cooked. The dining area is small (about 20 covers) but the noise from the pub Customers wasn't noticeable and we stayed at our table until late. The prices are competitive and two bottles of Prosecco for £... More

This pub / restaurant is in an interesting historic building. It is much more pub than restaurant. The dining area is quite small but distinctive. In our opinion there is a shortage of quality restaurants in Banbury. We felt that this place could help address that issue if it was a little more ambitious with the menu. My partner had... More

The building is really nice and the staff are great but this is a big bar and it is evident that the place needs a few licks of paint. Understand it is busy at night (I popped in mid-afternoon) so might look better then

Stayed in hotel close by and called in for Friday lunch. We were were seated at table in restaurant and were quickly attended to. The menu and wine list had good choices. Starters,mains,deserts,wine and coffees were were all of very good quality. We enjoyed the experience and would go back if we were in the area.

The Church House is a lovely building. We went there on a Saturday Evening at the end of July. There were quite a number of people drinking but few (if any) eating. We chose the 2 course deal - I had a steak and my wife chose the spicy chicken. Both were OK - not fantastic, but OK. The puddings... More
