Revisited th Auctioneer for a great night out. First off , can't full the service in anyway. Very attentive staff all round. As it was a lovely evening we spent it out in the courtyard and never had to get up for a drink. The food.....another quality meal once again. The wings are suberb. If they wanted to, I believe they could make a small fortune marketing the blue cheese sauce. Between us we had Sirloin, a Ribeye, Half a Chicken and Boogie Burger. All cooked to perfection. A word of warning to anyone going for the Boogie. It's 4 burgers in a bun and it's huge!!!!!! Incredibly tasty but huge. Well done Auctioneer crew. Another excellent night.

The best........

Wings
Sticky toffee pudding
Range of beers
Daily offers

Monday half price pizza and cocktails? Yes please.

Always busy, very clean, always good service. Not sure why cash tips no longer accepted, but the service charge is a stopper for some, suggest management looks at this again, and I am a loyalty card holder and huge fan of the pub.

If you go anywhere else in central Banbury to eat, you won’t have as much fun as here.

We were moored in banbury on our narrowboat for the night and looking for somewhere to eat in the evening. Most places were closing early as it was Father's Day, but The Old Auctioneer was staying open.
It was very busy, but we were given a warm welcome and taken to our table. We were told it was "Wings Special" night, 2 for the price of 1 on all wings dishes. It appears there is a special offer most nights. We had some great wings to start with. Mains were also very good and the one dessert we asked for had been specially made with enough for all 4 of us to get a decent share!
Lovely staff and a memorable evening.

Had almost given up hope of finding anywhere decent to eat in Banbury when we came across this place - served by 2 young people from Greece who were attentive, helpful and friendly - Chicken wings are a speciality here and were excellent and good value for money - Wednesday night happened to be 2 for 1 steak night so we took advantage of the offer - ribeye's were done just how we asked and were a good size - my wife couldn't finish hers - the beer was good too - would we go there again if in the area - definitely.

Lovely place to go for food or for a few drinks. Food is always really good, they have a good range of drinks and cocktails. Although the food is also really good the service can sometimes be a bit hit and miss.
