Places to eat & drink in Banbury.

This lovely old wool town used to be a Protestant stronghold but is best known now for its criss-cross cakes, its market cross and the nursery rhyme Ride a Cock Horse – the ‘fine lady on a white horse’ may be a reference to Lady Godiva.

The original market cross was destroyed by local citizens in 1602. The existing cross was erected in 1859 to mark the marriage of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter to Frederick of Prussia. Although some fine old buildings were consumed by fire in the 17th century, Banbury is a charming town whose modern prosperity owes much to the construction of the Oxford Canal.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Banbury or surrounding areas.
