I visit here quite frequently as up until recently this has tended to be the preferred venue for Banbury Beer Festival meetings. Close to the station and very traditional, in fact take a good look as you walk towards it and with the explosion in new buildings all around this looks place looks like a step back in time, I really like that juxtaposition of new and old. Inside it is a fairly plain but well looked after two room pub, family run and popular with locals. It is the sort of pub that you would hate to see slip away. The beers are well kept, well priced, however choice wise it is rare you are ever excited by anything.

Visited Friday 15/02/13 around 16.30.
Trad boozer wooden floor, tables, chairs etc. Fairly quiet so service was pretty decent.
Range of beers not too exciting on this visit ... brewers featured Adnams, Banks’s and WJ Kings. Quality of both beers I drank was good.
Decent enough boozer - but the range was pretty average to be fair - mid sized/established micro’s (although there was a sign on the window in support of SIBA).
5 mins (quick) walk from Banbury railway station.

Friendly family run pub close to Banbury Railway Station. This is like a village pub within the town, there are sports teams galore and a good loyal following of regulars. The beer range is small, but there is often something new to try, the condition of the beers is usually excellent. Always worth a look if you find yourself in Banbury, although the opening times can be odd.
