    I feel the food is overpriced and so are the drinks. There are a lack of places to have good pub food and I feel the this place takes advantage of that.

    Our server last night was by far the friendliest and professional we have ever experienced here before. Thank you for making our experience so great. Food was fab. Prosecco was ridiculously priced, £17.50 for 2 is not ok for banbury when we got a bottle for £20 in a pub straight after.

    Came here as a recommendation and the venue, cocktails and food did not disappoint. I had however read some bad reviews about the service and how right they are. despite wearing funky Hawaiian shirts which give off a fun and friendly vive the staff are all miserable as sin. Menus were literally dumped on a table for us, told to order as quickly as we can (despite it only being 8.30pm on a Friday night), no check backs, no smile and thank you when presenting the bill. The atmosphere is the restaurant reflected this poor service. On giving our feedback to the manager (who was the one friendly person we came across) he didn't seem at all bothered. After all of this poor service on checking out bill after paying we realised there was a 12% service charge added. Sort the service out and this place could be amazing!

    Had a pizza that a friend had on a previous visit. Was a little disappointed as it didn't come out looking as good as hers did. Still tasty.
