Wonderful Birthday Celebration

I visited Bistro 14 with my partner last week to celebrate his birthday after a recommendation from a friend. What a lovely evening we had, the food was absolutely sublime, service and attention to detail second to none and we will definitely be returning soon.

Fantastic experience - Lisa and Ivor made the whole visit very enjoyable. Was probably one of the best meals I've had, and at a reasonable price. Great value with attention to detail in it's prime.!! Would definitely visit there again and intend to soon.

We weren't impressed with this restaurant the first time we visited but the reviews seem to indicate that it's much better than our experience so we decided to give it another try. The restaurant doesn't come across as inviting. It looks closed from the outside with frosted windows, which makes it feel quite claustrophobic from the inside. The staff on... More

This was our second visit to Bistro 14. It was coming up to Christmas and very busy, but both the service and food were equally as good as the first visit. We will come again next time we are in the area.

Went to bistro 14 on recommendation from the bear as they were fully booked. Having been before we knew what to expect but it was much better than last time. Great fish dishes and lovely service. Could still work on ambience but it was a really nice evening and would def go back.

Very accommodating for vegetarians, gluten free, dairy intolerant, etc. Have eaten there many times and have always been impressed with the quality of the food. I belong to a local WI and we take over the restaurant twice a year (35 of us) - food is always great and arrives hot.

The ambiance lacks a little something, something that I can put my finger on but apart form that all good. My lamb was cooked... More

We came here to celebrate a friend's birthday and I we all went away feeling slightly disappointed. The room feels as unwelcoming as our waitress was. The food is very good but slow in arriving. There is a lot that could be done to improve a customer's experience, but sadly I would not be able to recommend the restaurant as... More
