Lovely food

Enjoyed well cooked quality food. Ambience could be better but the owner is friendly and makes up for any misgivings. We will be back.

The food and service were excellent, the steak on the attractively priced lunchtime menu was delicious, items off the general menu likewise. The vegan in our group was offered variations on the menu which catered for them well.

I wish they'd change the menu now and again! Having said that, the pork belly is amazing but the choice is limited so we have that every time we go.

Our pre-ordered food was delicious, couldn't fault it . I felt it lacked a little atmosphere, was very quiet , it would have been nice if there was some... More

We had lunch here last week selecting from their lunch special menu. The steaks were excellent and all the food was fresh, well prepared and well presented. The waitress was delightful and attentive. We will definitely go back again.

Bistro 14 is situated in Wallingford Street in Wantage right opposite the exit to Waitrose car park. It's not fancy inside but clean and functional and the toilets are clean. What makes this restaurant stand out is the fantastic food. The starters are innovative and tasty. We liked the poached duck egg on top. For the main course my three... More

I have been here several times and it is always a good meal with friendly staff. Ivo knows how to put food together and make it interesting. If we take guests with allergies or dislikes, he will always make something that meets their needs. So if you want something different just phone him in advance and I'm sure he will... More
