My second pub of a weekday evening in Banbury was an improvement on the first. This is more of a traditional two room boozer near the train station. Locals were congregated near the bar doing magic tricks! The 2 ales were both from Adnams - Bitter & Ghost Ship. Moved on from here to the nearby Mill Arts Centre (not listed on here).

Two bars with 3 hand pulls in each but only two beers on sale.
Banks's Sunbeam (£3.60) and Adnams Southwold Bitter (£3.10).
I tried a pint of each and they were ok but not outstanding.

New publicans since Spring 2014, beer quality on the slide.

Also think the place is over-rated (imo). Seemed a bit clique regarding customers and staff..certainly not so welcoming. Beer ok(ish). Also agree with other posts about ridiculous pickey opening times - 1pm or something silly on a Saturday!
Prefered the Hook Norton pub further into town tbh..but will give the Bell a try again.

Always worth a visit when in Banbury (handy for the train station). Good beer two bars and a great pleasant atmosphere with freindly licensees and staff. We used this when on a canal holiday and have been back again since then sometimes just making the train home. Well worth a visit.
