Having decided to meet in Banbury midway between our residences we then had to find a place for lunch. After consulting Trip Advisor the Coach and Horses was chosen. Although not easy to find the search was rewarded with an excellent venue for a mid day meal. It was half price wine on Wednesday, a feature we took advantage of... More

Visited on a Monday evening for a meal. Very quiet but the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The beer was local and very good. The menu looked interesting but had fish and chips. Price was good and the food was excellent. Portions were generous. I went in due to the high TripAdvisor rating and it is definitely well earned.... More

Warm welcome and great food. The garlic prawns were delicious. For mains we had sausage and mash, good quality sausages and the fish and chips were very tasty and a good size portion.

We had Sunday lunch at the Coach and Horses in Banbury on Sunday - our second visit since we last came in February. And it was just as fantastic as before - brilliant service, well kept real ale and absolutely delicious, reasonably priced food - thanks!!

We booked a table for an evening meal with friends and as always were greeted by the friendly team at The Coach & Horses, Banbury with smiles and efficiency. The four of us chose to have mains and puddings and between us we tried the lamb dish and the hake - all of which were polished off with great satisfaction.... More

I was on a coach party stopping in Banbury for lunch on our way to Thenford Arboretum. My friend and I had booked a table but our coach was caught up in a traffic jam on the M40 so we arrived at the Coach & Horses later than expected. The staff were great, advising us which dishes we should avoid... More

We were looking for an evening meal without pre-booking on a Saturday evening in Banbury, & happened upon this pub. We'd already checked out the local Wetherspoons & Pizza Express, both of which were noisy & uninspiring. This little pub/restaurant was welcoming, & had a good menu to select from including gluten - free & vegetarian options. I had what... More
