The Best Evenings Out In Banbury This Winter

Help keep Banbury’s evening life alive and pop to the town for a meal or festive tipple. With great pubs, bars and eateries offering a wide international menu, even the most hard-to-please are spoilt for choice. 

As COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect life, you may be faced with the dilemma of what’s the right thing to do: either going out to enjoy some evening cheer, or stay snuggled at home.

Stay safe, stay local in Banbury this winter

Over the past few months, Banbury’s pubs, bars and restaurants have made an incredible effort to adapt to the new social distancing demands to keep customers safe. They may have weathered many storms before, but nothing has ever equaled the challenges brought this year.


Over centuries pubs have been the beating heart of a community. A meeting place for the young and the old, where good food is shared over a pint or two, while putting the world to rights. Although this year may feel a little different, there are still lots of reasons to celebrate and enjoy your favourite local.

“Table service has revolutionised the way we operate – it makes the customers feel safer, helps us with social distancing and the track and trace app works really well” Rob Foreman from The Apothecary

What’s more, to keep you going until last orders, newcomer Taquero, has partnered with Rock the Atic to bring you the best of Mexican street food and cocktails in town. You can order from Taquero’s takeaway menu and get your food delivered to Rock the Atic in one of their themed quiz nights. 

“We’re just trying to find ways to be creative and to help each other out.” Ilja Abbatista, owner of Taquero 

With great offers and collaborations taking place, let’s support our Banbury town centre businesses this winter.
