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

Overall performance of this restaurant is satisfactory for me. If you are going to visit Wantage, you might enjoy with their menu. Chef is preparing food as you put your order so its not microwave heated. We liked their soup and seafoods. The interior decoration is not great and looks worn.

Our friends live in Wantage and had heard good things about this restaurant, so we decided to visit it one evening. Firstly, the good points: the food is freshly prepared and well seasoned and displayed. The chef showed us a platter of fish, which was a nice touch. Now, the not so good points: the restaurant feels like sitting in... More
