Had the venison burger and it was tremendous! Wife had scampi and loved it. I don't normally fuss over chips but these were excellent as well

Quite simply one of the best meals I have EVER eaten. Just stunning. If you are ever fortunate enough to be in Banbury, come here. Beautiful pub, very traditional and a roaring fire, brilliant attentive staff without being overbearing, very well kept local beer and food to die for. I'd recommend the Reindeer Special. It should be their signature dish,... More

I chose the pub as i always enjoy a pint or two when i drop in from time to time but had never eaten here previously. The food i ordered was disappointing at best. I opted for the Ham, Egg and Chips with the... More

Nice food but a rip off. Do not eat here as you will leave feeling hungry! Loads of people being turned away at 2pm as they decided they weren't serving food anymore, despite the 3pm serving time on the menu. The food was tasty but such a small portion. Won't be returning here.

Delighted with service and food quality provided for a group of 23. In addition there was a good choice of 4 real ales on offer, which were in excellent condition. Staff were cheerful and helpful

Calm, music free environment with lots of interesting historical memorabilia around the place. Very friendly and helpful staff whose service could not be faulted. Home made cream of vegetable soup was lovely. Venison burger with home made chunky chips was also faultless. Chilled out ambience that also contributed to an enjoyable eat out. Would go again.

We dropped in for a quick drink at this well known pub with friend. Whilst there we decided to grab a bite to eat. The food was excellent & the service very good. Well worth a visit.

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 an impeccable reputation for great pub food and extremely well kept ale. We always aim to meet and exceed these very high standards.
