What to expect other than great food …

QuackersPinto opened in November 2010 in what had previously been a photography studio, which meant that internally the space was subdivided into lots of small rooms, and at first it was bloomin’ difficult to appreciate its size and scale.  However, following some good old Loungers sledgehammer action we’ve been able to reveal a very spacious and quirky space.  Pinto comprises a typical Victorian shop unit to the front and a surprisingly large room with very high ceilings to the rear.  With eighty covers internally and a further thirty in the courtyard terrace to the rear she’s a bit of a tardis is this one.

Having a party?  We’d love to play host …

You can book a large party and we never disappoint.  From a quiet table for two or something a little larger to an office catchup or a quick meet up before going on for the evening, we can cater for any occasion.

Pinto Longue

Interesting Fact

Whilst stripping out the unit we uncovered some old Victorian tiles on the wall which is now in our back bar.  Suffice to say we opted to keep the tiles and after some good old fashioned elbow grease and general TLC they came up a right treat.  On the opening night a chap came in and told us that his father used to work in the building when it was a butchers many moons ago (hence the tiles).

A sneak preview … yummy!

What’s your poison?

Ye Olde Reine Deer in Banbury’s Old Town

Ye Olde Reine Deer InnA traditional 15th century pub

A crackling fire, fine food and real ale will perfectly round off your visit to the historic town of Banbury.

A warm welcome awaits you at Ye Olde Reindeer Inn, which dates back to the 15th century. It is a characterful and atmospheric pub where once Oliver Cromwell held court arranging future battles.  Its high beams, wooden floors and benches and the famous Globe Room create a unique atmosphere.

As well as sampling our local real ales, wines and spirits, we offer an extensive menu created by our experienced chefs that’s both affordable and delicious.

With our daytime bar menu available from noon until 3pm, 7 days a week, and a daily specials board, we offer the perfect way to unwind after a morning of shopping.  And if it’s a Sunday we serve a Sunday Roast from the chef’s joint of the day!

Some history ….

Ye Olde Reindeer Inn dates back to the 15th century and probably offers the best pub food in the market town of Banbury.  Tables near log fires are particularly popular during the winter months.  A fine range of local ales, wines and excellent spirits compliment a fine menu.


The atmospheric inn is of great local historic importance.  Oliver Cromwell held court in the pub, arranging future battles.  There are high beams, wooden floors and benches and the famous Globe Room, the paneling of which was held at the Victoria and Albert museum until 1946 and has now been returned.  For more details on the English Civil War and the Reindeer Inn’s involvement, scroll further down.

We’re proud of our food menu created by experienced chefs.  It offers exactly what you would expect of the pub but at very affordable prices.  We say, save some pennies for the ale!  Our day time bar menu is available seven days a week from noon until 3pm.  Our ‘Specials’ board is updated daily so pop in while you’re shopping to see what’s on offer.

Our dishes are all prepared to order here at Ye Olde Reindeer Inn, and at our busiest times may result in a short wait. We appreciate your understanding.

Ye Olde Reindeer history & The Globe Room

The Globe Room had a high ceiling and richly carved panelled walls with pillars, shields, scrolls and cherubs.  Above the panelling was an ornamented frieze covered in a mixture of angels and scrolls.  Surmounting the whole room was a magnificent honeycomb-patterned plaster ceiling rich with flowers, urns and scrolls with mermaid like figures appearing at intervals.  On the east side is a great mullioned window of eight bays, with a carved oak ionic pillar on each side of it and at either end of this wall are carved oak doorways.

It is believed to be very likely that the Globe Room was used regularly by Oliver Cromwell as his headquarters and more interestingly, as a court room to sit in judgement in one of the several Royalist trials that took place during the Civil War. We know this because of an engraving showing him seated behind a desk in front of the great mullioned window with an unfortunate captive in front of him.  A copy of this engraving can be seen in the Globe Room.

It is also thought that Cromwell may have used the Globe Room to plan one or both of the sieges of Banbury Castle that stood on the north side of the Market Place.
