French market arrives in Banbury’s Market Place

French market arrives in Banbury's Market PlaceBonjour!!  French market arrives in Banbury’s Market Place 🙂

Tongues and tastebuds will be in for a treat with the arrival of a French Market in Banbury on Friday, 28 March the Savoir Fayre Market will take up residence.

Visitors will be able to browse up to 40 stalls selling a range of French crafts, clothing accessories and foods including cheeses, meats and breads.

Cllr George Reynolds, Cherwell District Council’s deputy leader, said: “Banbury and Bicester are both traditional market towns and these continental markets fit that theme while offering a little something different for shoppers.

“We recently held an Italian market in Bicester and Kidlington so for anyone who missed out on a taste of Italy; there is an opportunity to sample the delights of France. And for those who did enjoy the Italian market, why not come along to the French market and enjoy a different taste of the continent.”

The market will take place in Banbury Market Place on Friday, 28 March from 9am – 5pm.

Frogabilia Art & Vintage DecoOur philosophy

At Frogabilia we believe that beautiful objects can really enhance your life, making your domestic environment more inspiring and restful, creating harmony whilst expressing something of yourself.  Creating and decorating an interior is a creative process, and the results reflect who you really are.  We also like the idea that each object has a story to tell, and has been made with a lot of skill and craftsmanship, and with good quality, long-lasting materials (the odd chip here or there just adds to the charm).  The fact that these objects have survived, standing the test of time, proves their value.  We believe that you must choose the things that surround you by your inner feelings and not according to what fashion dictates, matching objects with your personality.  This is why you will find such a range of beautiful and quirky items in our shop alongside classic designs and styles.

Ye Olde Reine Deer in Banbury’s Old Town

Ye Olde Reindeer Inn

A 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.

Ye Olde Reindeer Inn

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!

Drop in anytime, we’d love to see you.

Some history ….

Ye Olde Reindeer by Grant Funnell

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.


Did we mention our food?

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


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.

King Charles I

King Charles II

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.

Ask about our bra fitting service

Our specially trained staff can fit bras up to two sizes higher than most other high street bra fitting services.  Appointments are preferred so we can allocate enough time for the fitting service, but not always necessary.

Please be advised that, by law, we cannot arrange bra fittings to anyone under the age of 16.  We can of course offer advice and are happy help where we can.
