An ethical diner

Tom’s Diner will be a unique place to eat, in that it will be in essence, a business for good. Suppliers and partners are carefully chosen- either Social Enterprises such as New Ground Coffee, charitable organisations such as Frank Water, or B Corp Businesses who offer a new way of working in which business is a force for good.

Local ethical suppliers

Introducing another of our local drinks suppliers- the beyond delicious kombucha from their micro brewery right here in Oxfordshire.  Because kombucha has a naturally vinegary taste, many brands add fruit for a second round of fermentation and a sweeter end result.  Kombucha Kat does offer flavoured varieties (currently Blueberry and Ginger), but we think it’s nailed it when it comes to the Original. It’s super tasty, with a zing and a fizz in every sip.

Unpasteurised, certified vegan and organic, it has a beautifully crisp, subtle tang with a hint of apple. It appeals as a functional health elixir, grownup alcohol-free tipple or simply a refreshing soft drink.  The brewers have recently switched from hand bottling to aluminium cans to keep up with demand and offer a better price point and increased sustainability.

Waterstones Books in Banbury

Situated within Castle Quay Shopping Centre, Waterstones Banbury offers books in a friendly, helpful atmosphere to book lovers of all ages.

Arranged on one floor, we are an accessible family bookshop stocking a wide range competitive prices. Friendly, experienced booksellers can help you pick the perfect read or you can just browse in our safe haven of books! Our fantastic Children’s section gives parents and children the opportunity to discover new books and old favourites in a fun, friendly environment. Moreover, our enduring relationships with local schools also see us active within the local community, helping to bring writers and readers closer together.

Waterstones – Your Local Bookshop

Waterstones began in 1982 under the aegis of its founder, Tim Waterstone. Over the decades that have followed, we have grown to become an icon of the British cultural landscape, employing over 3000 superb booksellers across over 280 bookshops.

As the last surviving national bookshop chain, under the helmsmanship of Managing Director James Daunt, we are proud to have fought off the perceived threat of e-readers and online competition to begin a programme of active expansion. Recent years have seen fresh shops open around the country and sites either move or be upgraded. With recent openings including Reigate, Clifton and moves to far more attractive locations for our shops in Edinburgh and Manchester’s Trafford Centre, our plans continue to be ambitious.

Perhaps unusually for a national retailer, our branch managers enjoy a high degree of individual autonomy, running their shops to best please their local customers, with only the lightest of central suggested direction. We take enormous pleasure in championing simply good (but sometimes relatively overlooked) books, a principle that began most famously with John Williams’ Stoner, a quiet, intense novel that we turned into a bestseller forty years after its original publication.

Working closely with our bookshops are our efforts online, where at Waterstones.com we are working to bring the very essence of Waterstones to every home and smartphone in Britain. With hugely popular endeavours such as our regular reading update Waterstones Weekly and an ever-increasing offering of exclusive reader offers and signed editions, Waterstones.com is the perfect online companion to our High Street bookshops. Click & Collect – the service that links the two – has grown in tandem with our success, allowing our customers to experience the best of both worlds.

Through our own coffee shops, range of books, our array of gifts and booksellers who genuinely love what they sell, we welcome you to Waterstones.

4 Ale and Gin

4 Ale and GinCome and enjoy the drinking experience at 4

4 started as a simple dream for a couple who both wanted a drinking experience that catered for different tastes. Initially they set up a small Ale and Gin House in the Cotswolds. Specialising in quality Hook Norton beer and craft ales and an impressive selection of Artisan gins from around the World. Soon they outgrew their environment and realised this dream needed to develop in a town setting. Banbury became that ideal town.

It is always about the drinking experience first and foremost. We want to introduce you to new tastes and ideas both in the craft ale world and the ever expanding gin scene. We will have regular clubs where you can meet like minded individuals to discuss the latest offerings from local breweries and distilleries.

We want to create an environment that encourages people to get off their sofa and visit a bar. A comfortable setting where you can meet friends and colleagues, listen to classic tunes, enjoying fabulous drinks, eating tasty food.

4 Ale and Gin

We offer tasty bar bistro nibbles, pitchers of ales and jugs of gin. Come as a group and enjoy the atmosphere or hideaway in a corner as a couple or individual, read newspapers, listen to music, drink coffee, or wine, ale or gin. We also offer an exceptional selection of other spirits. All meant for your enjoyment.

Open Mic nights and private parties

We hold very popular Open Mic nights fortnightly on Wednesday and have our own inhouse Music Duo called G & T. (Gaz and Tom)

We hold parties and various events from 50 – 100 people. You can even hire the whole building for a private party.
