Really can not fault the food at Bistro14. Took my Grandmother there on Sunday and she is with out doubt the fussiest eater in the world! But not a peep from her so that was good!. 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

Good service, great food, reasonable prices. We'll be back. Pork belly highly recommended! Right up there with the Shoulder of Mutton for quality.

I had my wife's surprise 50th birthday party at Bistro14. Ivor took all the stress out of the organisation. The menu he designed was beautiful. The quality of the food and service on the night was impeccable with so many positive comments from our guests. We have eaten at Bistro14 before and will certainly be back again. THE place for...

Food was ok as was service but like sitting in a cheap cafe. Needs more atmosphere to make a better dining experience. Unsure why this is ranked number 1 on trip advisor
