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.

Ye Olde Reine Deer

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 at Ye Olde Reine Deer.

A warm welcome awaits you at Ye Olde Reine Deer 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.

Historic, unspoilt traditional pub: well kept Hook Norton ales, delicious food and friendly service.

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 ….

The Globe RoomYe 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.

Globe room available for bookings all year round…

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.

Ye Olde Reine Deer restaurant

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.

We have a policy of sourcing locally as much produce as possible.  Our meat is rarebreed and traceable, poultry free range and our fish is delivered daily.

Ye Olde Reine Deer 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.

Medieval Banbury

A post shared by Ye Olde Reine Deer (@ye_olde_reindeer_inn) on

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.
