I have used this restaurant many times when entertaining friends and family and have never been let down. The lunchtime menu changes regularly and is excellent value (2 courses for 9.95) There is always a warm welcome and the food is very consistent.

Went to visit our friend Neil in Wantage this week and paid a return visit to Bistro 14. Pleased to say that the lunchtime menu (2 courses for £9.95) provided a really good meal as usual (my two dining companions had the salmon and I had the pork cutlet). The portions were not large but were more than adequate and... More

Spent the evening of my birthday at Bistro 14 with my daughter and fab group of friends. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown to our table. We had pre-ordered our food as there were quite a few of us. Each plate of food was beautifully presented, on a hot plate and was cooked to perfection. The combination of... More

I ate here on Saturday night and had a fantastic meal. The place was buzzing with people but this did not effect service or quality. I had an 8oz fillet steak cooked to a perfect rare, delicious! my friend has a whole sea bass and said that she also enjoyed it very much. Dessert was the making with what seemed... More

My wife and I visited the venue on the evening of Friday 5th September after we had booked a table for 7pm. We ordered from the wine menu a bottle of Pinot Grigio which was very good and from the food menu we ordered the Ciabatta with balsamic glaze dip. The Ciabatta was not even the size of a baguette...

Wantage is an archetypal oxfordshire town and worth a ramble and the lunch or dinner at this little jewel is an added attraction. Smart pleasant and good food. We must go back.

We visited this restaurant for the first time last night for a quick meal before going on somewhere else. The food was fantastic, we didn't have starters as short of time but ordered venison steak and hake for main course which were both cooked to perfection, the fish especially was superb, if you like fish this is a very good...

Wish we'd made more of an effort to go before. Liked the fact they showed you what the "catch of the day" was and explained how it would be served. Portion size was spot on and worth keeping room for the desserts! Service with a smile all means we'll definitely be going again!

I had eaten in this restaurant previously under old management & hadn't rated it but a friend suggested going at the weekend so thought I'd give it another go. The decor isn't exactly warm, I'm not sure what was missing but it was neither traditional and cosy nor modern and minimalistic. Even so, its clean and tables are well spaced... More
