I have had numerous baguettes from this shop over the years. Whereas other shops have come and gone other the years this one has stood the test of time. It is always busy at lunchtimes with a queue sometimes stretching out onto the street. The choice of fillings is huge and the baguettes are freshly baked and are usually still warm when you receive them. The baguettes are freshly made up in front of you with a choice of salad items to be added. There is usually a special each day at a discounted price and drinks are available.
Favorite Dish: Tuna Mayo Baguette with salad

Four of us went to the New Inn on a Sunday lunchtime to try out the restaurant. We were greeted on our arrival, ordered drinks and were taken to our table in the conservatory. We ordered our selection of food which started to arrive after a few minutes. I started with Plaice Goujons which were tasty. Being someone who enjoys a roast I followed with a pork roast, which had good sized portions. I was spoilt for choice with the different desserts but finally settled for Toffee Topolino which was delicious. All the food was well presented and none of us was disappointed with any of the different courses. All the staff were pleasant and it was busy with a continuous flow of dinners coming and going. The meal cost approximately £25 each with drinks plus a couple of sides dishes. The location of the New Inn is not in Banbury but about 6 miles out of town and requires a transport to reach it.

The Top Wok is a Chinese Restaurant in Banbury, with a wide range buffet menu of starters, main course, vegetarian and desserts. A lunch Monday to Saturday 12noon to 2.30pm costs £7.50 for as much as you can eat. Drinks cost extra. The only service is to bring drinks and clear dishes. I have eaten here a number of times and the staff are friendly and helpful. Its ideal for lunch being a buffet because the food is available straight away.
Favorite Dish: The Peking spare ribs are certainly worth a try.

This was the first meal I have tried from the Indian Pantry. Ordering online was easy and you choose your pick up time or you can have it delivered. I ordered the Tuesday night bonanza which is a set meal for two but half price and it was ready for me when I arrived. The meal had been carefully packed and labelled. The meal consists of poppaddams with mango chutney and mint yoghurt to start the meal off. This was followed by mix veg pakora and chicken tikka. They were quite well seasons, perhaps slightly too much for my taste. Finally there was chicken korma, chicken balti and saag aloo with pilau rice. There was plenty of rice but we were disappointed with the other dishes. I have been to a number of Indian restaurants as well as cooking some of these dishes at home. I am not sure it I have become use to their taste but I did not really like the meal as most of it mainly the meat was too spicy. For someone who enjoys their meal very well seasoned it may suit their palate.

This was my first visit to the Hanwell Arms, though Lin has been there a number of times. The pub and surrounding shops have only been open about 5 years and this was one of the last parts of the Hanwell Estate to be built. There is plenty of room between the tables which makes a change from most of these types of premises. Having made your choice of food you order it from the bar and it is brought to your table. We all chose starters and these were well presented. The mains we had were steaks and gammon. Lin and Emma had a dessert. It was well presented for simple bar food and we enjoyed it all. Being a pub we never felt under any pressure to leave and could have stayed there all afternoon. I was pleased with the food and will return to this pub again for another meal. There are various themed days for meals, low calorie choices and a traditional roast available on Sundays.

I have visited this restaurant twice at lunchtiime and it is about 8kms from my house. It is located next to a Premier Inn and there was no problem parking. It has a large restaurant and small bar and has wifi available for free. You are greeted on arrival by a member of staff who takes you to your table, where you make your selection from the menu before you order at the bar. There is a reasonable choice of food, with a number of offers and it is well present. The drinks and food are brought to the table by a member of staff who also clears the dishes. The food is typical of fast food served in pubs and so long as you are aware of this then you will not be disappointed. I tried the mushroom soup but it was nothing special. Lin tried a prawn cocktail but she said it could have done with more sauce. We have previously tried a jacket potatoes and a Chicken Club Sandwich both of which were fine.

I have just been out to lunch at one of the newest restaurant/pub in Banbury to try out their carvery. I have to say I was not disappointed. I had the roast beef with yorkshire pudding and 7 different vegetables. It was so filling that I was stuffed the first time around though you can help yourself to as many helpings of vegetables and yorkshire pudding as you want. Lin had the roast gammon with all the trimmings followed by an ice cream and chocolate. It was well cooked as you would expect with fairly simple menu. With 2 soft drinks it came to £14 which is excellent value for money. For those who do not fancy the carvery there are other choices including a vegetarian option.
The Toby Cavery has now branched out into opening for all you can eat breakfast buffet from 7am to 10 am. Even better news, if you search on the internet there are frequent offers of buy one get one free. That's £4.95 for 2 full english breakfasts.

The Buffet is the second Chinese Restaurant in Banbury Town Centre that provides a reasonably priced all you can eat buffet. At lunchtime it provides about 50 different dishes for the normal three courses. I like this style of service because if I am on a lunch break I can eat straight away plus it gives you a chance to sample different dishes. There are a number of seating areas in the restaurant and you are not rushed. I tried a number of dishes and found them all delicious. The price varies with the time and the day of the week. 12 noon to 6pm on Monday to Saturday is the cheapest price at £6.90. Unfortunately this restaurant is closed at present.
