I find the male receptionist very polite, helpful and efficient . I also have a male dentist in which I can't fault in anyway , he was brilliant with my daughter when treating her for root canal and is always on time x

Excellent service all round. Efficient and polite. They do the necessary treatment without making a song and dance about it. My dentist Mark will clean and polish my teeth during the routine check ups, without charging me extra. Highly recommended.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Shotteswell

Paw Paw

56 Bridge St, Banbury OX16 5QD, UK – 01295 264959

Happy! Excellent Spicy basil, garlic and onion stir fry, mushroom and chicken, and spring rolls. With egg fried. £36 with a gin and tonic, 2 bottles of sparkling water. Bigger portions would have earned 5 stars.

I think Paw Paw is an outstanding restaurant and I do love the takeaway service. Seem to be well organised and the orders are always right. The main feature that distinguish Paw Paw from other chineese takeaway from other in Banbury is a great, great selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes. I just looked at Tim Tim's menu and there are no tofu dishes on offer at all! How? Chinese food is famous for great veggie food. Good value for money! only comment would be that you can't collect points when takeaway.

Sale Pepe

1 Burchester Pl, Banbury OX16 3WT, UK – 01295 402606

Wonderful place. My husband and I are local to the area and were happy when we found this place right around the corner from us. Delicious wholesome food!!! Fresh ingredients!!! Friendly owner. Will be sad of they go.

Possibly one of the best Italian restaurants around. Sale Pepe provides a homely Italian experience with a cosy atmosphere and marvellous well priced food. Although slightly tucked out of the way this restaurant is very worth seeking out. All food is fresh with many of the ingredients being specially sourced from Italy itself. Truly delicious, completely worth checking out.

Frankie & Benny's

Stroud Park, Ermont Way, Banbury OX16 4AE, UK – 01295 700170

Not a bad place BUT! While they do a gluten free menu it is only the same menu minus the gluten. Eg. The Gluten free Burger has no replacement bun, so if you gluten free it expensive and you risk either paying throw the nosie or going hungry. Although the ricotta is filling if not very bland. I no long go there.

American style diner with good selection of food and decent speed service. I prefer TGIs but we dont have one in banbury so F&Bs is a good alternative.

Nursery and Preschools

The Close Nursery School Banbury

14 Prospect Rd, Banbury OX16 5HH, UK – 01295 263569

It's a very nice nursery in a quiet location with friendly staff.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Chenderit School

Archery Rd, Middleton Cheney, Banbury OX17 2QR, UK – 01295 711567

Great school with great staff and pupils seem well behaved. Very good communication between school and parents, and easy to contact school should you need to.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Chenderit school. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the lessons will go over a typical student’s head. There’s also the teacher's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into their characterisation- their personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The students understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these lessons, to realise that they’re not just informative- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Chenderit truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in the teachers existential catchphrase “Be nice, Aim high,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as the teachers genius wit unfolds itself on the whiteboard. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

Dashwood Banbury Academy

44 Merton St, Banbury OX16 4RX, UK – 01295 263240

It's an amazing school,active and fun the school uniform is smart and all the teachers are nice.
