Our third visit in as many months, this time for our wedding anniversary lunch. The quality and presentation of the food along with wonderful service never fails to impress. The Moon and Sixpence has become our clear favourite locally. We will be back again soon.

Met a friend for Sunday lunch at this pub. It was quite busy but we didn't feel rushed at all and in fact the manager said our table was ours for the sitting. Food very good especially the starters. Vey reasonably priced too.

Booked dinner with some friends with no prior reviews or recommendations and the whole evening was delightful from the moment we arrived. The welcome was warm, friendly and genuine and this continued throughout the evening as food orders and drinks were replenished. The food was both plentiful and delicious and presented in a way that made it look appetising without... More

The service was fantastic again. It has the right balance of formality/professionalism and informality that compliments the modern dining style of the extensive menu. There is so much of a delicious choice that it can take some time to come to a decision! Having dined here for a few years, it is noticeable over the last 12 months (or so)... More

Went with a large group for our Club annual social get together. We've been for a few years now and the fixed price menu has stayed at the same price for at least the last 3. There's always a good choice including vegetarian and gluten free options. What always amazes me is that there's no need to pre-book meals, people... More

We've been to this pub//restaurant several times before, and have never had a bad meal. However, last Saturday things were slightly less than perfect. Firstly we were disappointed that some of the dishes were sold out - but maybe this was the norm for a Saturday evening? (We normally come on a Sunday or on a weekday evening.) The sea... More

I am very fond of this pub/restaurant. It's a gorgeous traditional venue: smarter than most and full of warmth and character - Cotswold stone, roaring fire, wooden beams. It's tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Banbury has never been renowned for restaurants and there aren't many to chose from if you want something perhaps a little special. But this will more... More

Dear Mark F, Thank you for your time reviewing the Moon & Sixpence - I am guessing your review relates to Ian F's - though when you say, "I cannot make any comparison to previous staff as suggested by another review" I'm unclear if there is a connection or not.

We wanted to go out for Sunday lunch and decided The moon and Sixpence sounded the place to try as we hadn't been before. It certainly didn't disappoint,we had excellent service and fabulous food. We will definitely be going again to try the rest of the menu. We'd highly recommend the whole experience
