Description: 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.

Reviewed 9 May 2014

I booked the ‘historic’ globe room at Ye Olde Reinedeer Inn for a works social event. Communication was excellent both pre-event and during. The room and tables were set-out immaculately and the food and service that evening could not have been better. The staff were extremely courteous and accommodating, the home-made food was delicious, served exactly on time, piping hot and without any hiccup or mishap, and bearing in mind there were 20 of us was impressive. In fact the evening could not have gone any smoother thanks to the helpful and very professional staff at Ye Olde Reinedeer Inn. Unbelievably good value for money and a great selection of beverages to boot. We will certainly be venturing there again in the not so distant future. Thanks for a great evening.

“Excellent pub and a warm welcome too”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

On a very busy evening, 6 of us walked into the pub and received an incredibly warm welcome. The food was all made fresh to order and was absolutely delicious.
The staff should be highly commended for their excellent customer service, which is not always the case when visiting a pub for a one off meal.
The pub is full of atmosphere and retains a tradition that is sadly dying out in pubs in England.
If you want a warm welcome, excellent food and a traditional atmosphere then this is the place to visit in Banbury

“Best pub in Banbury”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

With more than 400 years of added charm, this is the best pub in Banbury. Historic. Laid back. Roaring fireplace in winter. Great Thursday pub-quizz. What more could you ask for? Well... maybe a larger selection of lagers? Kronenbourg 1664 anyone?

“It's all about the History in the Seventeenth Century Pub”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

For me visiting the oak paneled Globe Room was a must. It has incredible atmosphere and history linked to the English Civil War. My friends and I had lovely sunday lunch with fine ale and would heartily recommend it to other visitors to the area.
