“Nice Traditional Pub”
Review of The Blinking Owl

The Blinking Owl
Ranked #2 of 14 Nightlife in Banbury
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Visited the Blinking Owl over the New Year whilst staying in the village. We found this traditional pub extremely welcoming and full of history and character. Thank you Sylvia for the delicious meal and enjoyed our chats Dave you made us very welcome and warm with such lovely open fires on the cold evenings. We also enjoyed the quiz and our team mates on New Year's Eve. We will return again hopefully sometime this year and will count how many owls are in the pub this time.

We wish you and your regulars a Happy and Healthy 2014

The Blinking Owl is a traditional English pub, Dave the landlord always welcomes visitors in his own inimitable way. The pub dates back to 1645 and if its a classic pub you are looking for; look no further. Don't expect loud music, TV or pokey machines, you won't find them here. One tip bring cash as there are no card facilities.
