We sat in the pub area for dinner. Good plentiful food, great service. I'd go again. I'm not accustomed to curry's but the one I had was delicious.

I took a friend of mine to see the Ye Olde Reindeer in Banbury because it's really well preserved with exposed timbers and paneling however, when told it was £8.20 for two pints to say he was gob smacked would be an understatement. Luckily for...More

Since my last review I have observed that wine by the glass has become overpriced and food portions are a little smaller. Quality of food remains good but the menu is more limited. Somewhat disappointing.

Went for a meal, very dog friendly. Good food, good value. Great 60's music in the background, not too loud, just right. Will visit again.

Enjoy real ales and fine food in an historic setting. Hooknorton beer, what's not to like. In winter with a log fire it's a true haven. Step back in time and take a break from the hustle and bustle. You will not be disappointed.

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.
