Welcome to the Bistro Cafe at The National Herb Centre, Banbury     



The Bistro is situated in a converted 19th Century mellow stone barn.

Whether you are looking for a delicious light lunch, salad, soup and a sandwich,  a hearty meal or just a coffee & cake and a catch up with friends, our bistro offers you an exciting range of fresh dishes made in our own kitchen.

The chef takes great pride in his menu, using only the finest, and wherever possible, local ingredients.   An abundance of the seasonal herbs, fruit and vegetables used are grown in The National Herb Centre's gardens.

The bistro menu reflects our commitment to fresh seasonal produce, with daily specials offering value for money and a wealth of choice.

Food is served throughout the day:


We serve a menu including our traditional Full English Breakfast, bacon and egg sandwiches.  A vegetarian breakfast is also available.


We serve a selection of fine coffees, teas, homemade cakes and snacks for that mid-morning treat.


For lunch, why not try one of our daily specials?  Or if you are looking for something lighter try our soup with homemade bread.

Afternoon tea

Finish the afternoon with a traditional cream tea.



Join us on a Sunday for one of our famous roasts.  Booking recommended.
