Good place for a meal. Not the best spacing between tables and the waiting staff could benefit from some training but other than that the food is tasty and warm

Fanrastic old pub with great sales but the food ...! I had a burger which was good but the fries had clearly been cooked some time for and kept warm - chewy and barely edible. And it cost £14! The next day I went round...More

Arrived late in the evening and was greeted warmly. Not being too familiar with the regional ales I got to sample what I liked most. Besides being a must go-to place, this pub has a very british flair, with card playing lads sitting and enjoying...More

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.
