Decided to have a brekkie treat! Popped into the Pinto Lounge. Had The Lounge Breakfast and a coffee and it was fab. All the breakfast was hot not warm. The coffee was still hot after eating breakfast. A unique style sausage 'ball' bacon and mushrooms that tasted how they should. Very much enjoyed it.

We visit Pinto fairly regularly for coffee, brunch, lunch or drinks. I have to say how lovely everyone is. The staff are always smiley and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We often suggest Pinto as a meeting place with friends. Keep up the hard work Pinto peeps!! One tiny thing to address is the loo. They can be... More

Lovely food but not an ideal venue on a cold day! We had to wear our coats as there was a nasty cold draught! We had to queue for a good 10 mins to order, orders are placed at bar! We had a hot chocolate that unfortunately was Luke warm too! Burger was lovely though and I would recommend the... More

We have visited several times over the past few years and one thing is guaranteed - they have always ran out of something. Visited today at 10:30 and as always - things on the breakfast menu not available. How hard can it be after running the place for several years to estimate the food required each day.

I've been to the Pinto Lounge many times now and I've never had a bad experience. The food is great, the atmosphere is lovely, and the staff are the best! There's nearby parking which is a huge bonus when it comes to eating in Banbury.

Really enjoyed lunch at the Pinto Lounge. Interesting venue - great art work on the walls and some great chandeliers hanging from the ceiling too. Reasonable prices for pretty healthy salads. Staff accommodating to requests for sauces on the side. Nice Green tea served in pots too.

The service here is usually good even though I had to ask a member of staff to remove chewing gum two weeks ago. But today I spent £11 on lounge breakfast, coffee and toast with marmalade a bit of a treat. All fairly good but the mushrooms I would say had been held overnight and tasted of garlic. I had...

Hi, Thanks for posting us a review it was really nice to hear that you'd chosen Pinto Lounge for your birthday drinks. I'm very sorry to hear that you didn't have the chilled late evening of cocktails you wanted, but due to the restrictions of our license we unfortunately have to stop serving at 11pm. We hope to see you... More

Have eaten at Pinto previously and had always enjoyed it, but the breakfast last Saturday was very disappointing. The avocado was brown and very unappetising (clearly not fresh). The eggs were requested to be well done but the request wasn't followed through. We ate the food because in a rush and paid the bill but decided to feed it back... More

Staff were lovely and nice quick service . We had tapas which was great and a bottle of wine . Only given it a 3 stars as they were out of lots of things we ordered, however what we did get was really nice and the atmosphere was great .
