Ye Olde Reine Deer Inn is the oldest public house in Banbury. Situated halfway down Parsons Street, in the town centre no visit to Banbury is complete without a visit to Ye Olde Reine Deer. A Hook Norton Brewery pub ensures the offering of mainstay Hooky beers and a seasonal guest, its even the breweries 'flagship' pub. The pub itself is over 400 years old and steeped in history and local folk law. The Globe room a hidden gem to the rear of the property used to be a common room for travelling gentry and is still clad in the original oak panelling, an incredible find and talking point. We serve food 12pm-3pm, 6pm-9pm Monday-Saturday and 2pm-3pm on Sunday. Ye Olde Reine Deer Inn has always had

We stopped for a drink and didn’t eat, but the food looked excellent (traditional pub fare). The pub was old fashioned and cosy, more like a village pub, with lots of carved wood. Service was quick and friendly. We would return if in the area.

Lovely old pub, great atmosphere, good choice of beers. Staff were helpful and attentive. Baked camembert was served with a baked 1/2 head of garlic and tasted amazing.
