Popped into here for dinner one night with a friend who lives in Banbury. They absolutely love the place. I can see why it’s popular, the food was good and the cocktails my friend was drinking were to their liking. The prices were fair too.More

Been to Pinto lounge a number of times. The staff are polite and the food is tasty and substantial. Always busy any time of day and live their breakfasts, burgers and tapas. Always good food but can be pricey.

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!
