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

We had a great meal at this restaurant and I can't rate it highly enough- the menu was so well balanced and would cater for many tastes. The meal we had was fantastic, full of flavour and expertly cooked and well presented. The staff were very knowledgeable, polite and clearly wanted you to enjoy the experience. Wife had scallops and... More

My toddler daughter & I enjoyed a relaxed, delightful lunch. The staff were great and made a special effort to ensure my daughter was happy. She enjoyed her fresh fish chosen from the daily platter & I loved my asparagus dish. Will be back soon.

Visited tonight from a recommendation from my sister in law and had a fantastic meal. Cooked to perfection and really good service from the waitress Lisa. Will definitely visit next time we are up here, there is no better place to eat. Many thanks to the Chef/owner. Would highly recommend.

Our party of 11 pitching up on Saturday evening tested the short-staffed kitchen but when the food arrived it was worth the wait and in the interim Lisa the waitress was charm personified. My spring onion and herb potato cake with soft fried duck egg starter was superb and others in the group were ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the seared... More

The ladies of Wantage Womens Institute have yet again celebrated St George's Day at Bistro 14 in Wallingford Street, Wantage. The food is lovely and fresh and well presented, the staff are always polite and cheerful and Ivor the chef/owner even allowed me his last treacle tart to take home for my husband along with a dish of clotted cream,...

My wife and I have visited Bistro 14 on several occasions now . Writing reviews is not normally something I find the time or the inclination to do, however for this restaurant I must make an exception. The food served here is excellent. Freshly prepared and of a very high quality. I have eaten in many Michelin star restaurants across... More

We booked this restaurant for Mother's day, after seeing reviews on Trip advisor. We were travelling up from Dorset and my Mother lives in Wantage. None of the family who live locally realised that it was there! The owner and staff were very friendly and accommodating ( I have several food allergies, which were no problem.) The food was freshly... More
