Visited this place twice in the last month, food, service atmosphere all excellent. The place has really upped its game and its well worth going out of your way for. Definitely holds its own amongst the best in West Oxfordshire. Well done.

We stayed at the Biztro our first night in England. It was built in the 1740's! It has a lot of character! The beds were comfortable, the food was good. Our room had low ceilings, so not recommended for tall people!

We live in Bampton a few hundred yards from the Biztro so it was a natural choice for us to talk to Biz (it's her restaurant) about having our reception meal there in August 2013. We discussed menus with her and her chef and all agreed on three choices of mains for our guests (and a few deserts). A very... More

We first tried this lovely little Bistro in February this year, and have just about managed to have a meal there once a month and absolutely love it. There is always an adequate selection of dishes on offer and these change on a monthly basis and there's always a Special or two to back it up. The desserts are always... More

lovely little place, part of a B+B near where they film Downton Abbey apparently! It is friendly and discreet, nice decor, small but very satisfying. Beautiful food a good varied menu, game pie was on while we were there, very unusual for small places but the food was just lovely, the wine was good and the service was excellent. Really... More

Local fare, well prepared and with excellent service. I had locally made pate, and my wife had squash soup for starters, both excellent, followed by lamb chops, with rosemary garnish and excellent local green beans. Homemade ice cream finished the meal off perfectly. Really a nice meal!

Small friendly Bistro. Fireplace was glowing on a gloomy evening. I was early so seating wasn't a problem, otherwise I may have been out of luck as this is a popular place.

The only restaurant in Bampton, maybe it needs some competition in order to come up to scratch. It seems lost in a confusion somewhere between nouvelle cuisine and dishes made from local fare. The result is skimpy, uninspiring, disappointing courses. They start with a bread course with a oil dip I didn't have any of this, I later wish I... More

As you said in your review 'we went for the cheese board' and mentioned that 'it' was put on the table. The cheese is not designed to be a sharing dish, if you had intended it to be for the two of you, why did you not order 2 portions? I am sure if you had it would have been... More

We had a super meal here, and a wonderful breakfast. The room was clean, comfy and welcoming. The staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. It's a pleasure to go somewhere where they try their utmost to accommodate your requests. A lovely friendly place! Well worth a visit and a great place to stay.
