“Great waiter, shame about the Fajitas”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

We ate here during an overnight stay in Banbury and had mixed feelings about the food. I had an excellent rack of baby pork ribs, but my wife's fajitas lacked any spiciness at all, so not really fajitas, more of a chicken wrap really. The fresh fruit meringue dessert was good, but the fruit was just a few small slices of strawberry, so mainly just meringue and cream. The music on the PA was right up our street being mainly from 70s and 80s and the waiter was brilliant - a Chinese guy whose command of the English language would put most Englishmen to shame and who smiled continuously whenever he served us. So a bit of a mixed review really. Overall though I would say give it a go!

“Friendly pub with great food”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I have been to two birthday parties here and a retirement party and the food has been great on all occasions. I would highly recommend the sizzling steak fajitas I have had these on all 3 occasions as they are so good and such good value for money. Food service is swift with very friendly attentive staff. There is a large function room upstairs which is great for special occasions and a nice area outside for sipping beers on hot summer days!

“First class food and friendly staff”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

1st visit to the old auctioneer and we were pleasantly surprised at the speed of service and quality of food. There was a 2 for 1 on which was a steak the night we called. It was great value for money. The staff were very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. It was very busy but they coped very well. I would certainly recommend this restaurant and would certainly eat here again.
