Excellent small bistro

This is the second time I Have eaten at the Biztro and this time was even better than the last. We were very impressed with the service and quality of the food, and Wednesday and Thursday is steak special with 2 for £20, which is great value.

In rural Oxfordshire there is the pub or not a lot else. Much as though we all love pubs sometimes you want something a bit more structured and Biztro provides this in the centre of downtown (or should that be Downton) Bampton. I went last Saturday with my wife and brother and had a lovely meal with very reasonable prices... More

Went there last night with my husband, son and daughter. The food and wine were excellent. I had prawns in garlic and chilli to start - perfectly cooked. Then I had steak - I like my steaks rare and it is amazing how many people get this wrong. Here, it was exactly what I wanted! For dessert I had coffee... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant with rooms, in the middle of the village where I live. There is always personal service from Biz who owns it. It is a perfect place for an intimate dinner and 2 years ago we took over the place for our wedding reception and had the most wonderful time.

We received a warm welcome on arrival. Restaurant ambience was relaxing. Contrary to some reports we did not find the acoustics affected our dining experience. The menu was balanced and fairly priced as was the wine list. The food was tasty and well cooked being more bias to good home cooking with quality ingredients. The waiting staff were both professional... More

We booked this with about 2 hours notice using their mobile app. It worked really well. we then turned up half an hour before they opened (we were waiting for an evening concert so had to eat at 6pm) and they let us in and sit in the warm. Then they served us rapidly and efficiently with good grub -... More

After reading all the good reviews, I thought we'd give it a go for Valentine's dinner and the set menu looked delicious! The service was friendly, if a bit slow, and the place is quite small with a cosy atmosphere. The negatives were that by just gone 7pm there was only one scallop starter left, and I heard that they... More

Lived near Bampton for years but only just found Biztro. Calm, friendly service, wonderful food and great wine! The warm chicken, bacon and avocado salad starter followed by bream was heavenly. We'll be back there soon.

I ordered a gin and tonic from the young man,which took a while to come,when it did arrive it had no ice,but was soon rectified.

We had a lovely meal for two recently at the Biztro, always a pleasure to eat there. We both had generous and refreshing starters, and for mains we chose a vegetarian dish and salmon. Both meals were delicious, we paid extra for walnut salads - well worth it! My husband, a connoisseur of salmon, was very satisfied with the quantity... More
