We have had two perfect meals here

The first time we came I started with soup of the day - a perfectly-made French onion soup - and my partner Pat had the Salmon and Prawn cocktail. We were both very impressed. For my main course I had the slow-cooked belly of pork, and Pat had a Chicken and spinach dish. Both were cooked to... read more

I decided to come here for a pre-work meal while in Wantage based on the fact that there were a number of positive reviews on here, while most of the negative ones seemed to be over issues unrelated to the food. Unfortunately I was rather disappointed with the food here as, while there were some good aspects, all three courses... More

We visit this restaurant every other month and the food is always sublime. Great service, scallops and pork belly always ensure a great evening.

Visiting Wantage for the first time and catching up old friends they treated me to lunch saying this was 'the" place to eat. Well I was truly disappointed in the quality and quantity of the food. My pasta main course was the size of an entre, very dry and not flavoursome. Loved the décor and fit out and the staff... More

We decided to go to Bistro 14 as it was local and I didn't have to drive. This was the third time my wife and I have visited and on all occasions I could not fault it. I would recommend this restaurant to any one who likes to dine well without paying the "earth"

Came to visit some friends in Wantage on Tuesday, they took us to Bistro14 for a meal and what a meal it was. Excellent fresh fish, simply cooked but delicious. Enjoyed all my three courses from the potato cake with a lovely runny duck egg, a whole pan fried sea bass and my strawberry cheesecake. Looking forward to my next... More

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...
