Supper and catch up with my friend, so much to choose from in Banbury, glad we came here. Great atmosphere, friendly attentive staff, huge portion sizes, yummy tapas, great cocktails! The mac and cheese is out of this world, love the twist with the veg, like your variety of tapas.

Food is lovely and it's a cosy cafe I just wish the portions were a bit bigger. The decor is nice and there's a relaxing atmosphere here.

Had only eaten breakfast here before so had no idea what the menu had to offer,was surprised at the diversity of food-loads to choose from. I opted for the butternut squash and lentil curry and was glad I did. Best meal I've had in a while. My wife had bang bang noodles and was as equally impressed. Kids meal was... More

Came here today with my hubby to have lunch and what an excellent experience it was. From the moment we entered until the time we left we were treated to not only wonderful food, but also polite, courteous and thoughtful staff. Given that they were also having to deal with an extremely rude customer at the same time (and I'm... More

Whilst most coffee shops can be stuffed with tables and a little on the chilly side, no so the Pinto Lounge. The Pinto is a warm and welcoming place on a cold winters day. In the summer they have a secluded courtyard. Today I just had coffee, but in the passed I've tried the tapas. Yummy.

The environment in the Pinto is lovely and great with children and the staff usually helpful. The food however is very hit and miss. Eating here for a family meal and ordering a steak, which was the most expensive thing on the menu was incredibly poor quality and tasteless - as was my friends. We ordered a range of food,... More

Decided to have a brekkie treat! Popped into the Pinto Lounge. Had The Lounge Breakfast and a coffee and it was fab. All the breakfast was hot not warm. The coffee was still hot after eating breakfast. A unique style sausage 'ball' bacon and mushrooms that tasted how they should. Very much enjoyed it.

We visit Pinto fairly regularly for coffee, brunch, lunch or drinks. I have to say how lovely everyone is. The staff are always smiley and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We often suggest Pinto as a meeting place with friends. Keep up the hard work Pinto peeps!! One tiny thing to address is the loo. They can be... More

Lovely food but not an ideal venue on a cold day! We had to wear our coats as there was a nasty cold draught! We had to queue for a good 10 mins to order, orders are placed at bar! We had a hot chocolate that unfortunately was Luke warm too! Burger was lovely though and I would recommend the... More

We have visited several times over the past few years and one thing is guaranteed - they have always ran out of something. Visited today at 10:30 and as always - things on the breakfast menu not available. How hard can it be after running the place for several years to estimate the food required each day.

Pinto Lounge is an informal, neighbourhood food led cafe lounge that's open 9am till 11pm everyday.

Where families, friends, and locals can enjoy coffee, cocktails and loads in between! A nice big breakfast, something light to eat at lunch time and some tasty tapas in the evening. All in the relaxed comfortable environment of a lounge.

We have a heated courtyard and well behaved children and dogs are welcome too!
