I was away on business and went for dinner alone to the highly recommended Bistro 14. I received a friendly welcome and excellent service from the lone waitress, but alas the good table service and friendly conversation didn't totally make up for the average fayre and lack of atmosphere, (there were three of us to start and about seven when...

This is a great little restaurant in the market town of Wantage. Ivor and his team serve a beautiful menu of fresh food. I have been for lunch with the WI where we have chosen from a fixed menu and my husband and I have enjoyed an evening meal where he enjoyed the catch of the day and I loved... More

Our first visit to this small restaurant. We were glad we came. The food was excellent. Choices were amazing and we left happy and full! The chef/Owner Ivor was so friendly and attentive as well as the lovely waitress. The pace of the meal was slow but just right, this created a very relaxed evening. The catch of the day... More

I took my parents to Bistro 14 and had a lovely meal. The place is lacking in a bit of character both inside and out, with very plain décor and subtle exterior which fails in getting passers-by to drop in. They would benefit from a bit of creative expertise in giving the place more of an identity. The food however... More

My friend booked this restaurant thinking it was another. So pleased he made this mistake. The food was amazing, service excellent. I think it needs some twinklly lights and an inviting look from the outside to get more people there! Also a more sumptuous interior to match the fantastic food. Not vitally important but would help the restaurant to compete... More

My family and I visit the bistro on a regular basis and the quality is always consistently amazing. This however was our first visit on a Sunday and it did not disappoint. The roast sirloin was deliciously tender served with an array of fresh vegetables, roast potatoes and a huge Yorkshire pudding. The restaurant was buzzing with convocation with every... More
