Stayed for just one night in this old inn, situated in the middle of Banbury. The location is good, convenient for the town centre and local attractions. Main road outside is noisy if you have a room overlooking the front. Room (18) was fine, a bit old fashioned but full of character, just the way I like it. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Excellent breakfast with good sausages(Gloucester Old Spot!). We had a meal deal (£10 for two mains) for dinner and that was very good.
The only drawback for me was that this is a Greene King Hotel so only their ale on offer in draft form. I had a fairly tasteless pint of IPA (too warm !) and was forced to then go for a Stella which at least has some flavour. G K pubs should definitely start to offer at least one local cask ale to pull in the weirdy beardy real ale..ers !
All in all very pleasant and t be recommended. Hint-take a couple of bottles of real beer to drink in the room!!
