Pleasant Valentine's Meal

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... read 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.

My husband had dinner hers one friday night in January. First impressions were good as we were shown to our table. 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. Unfortunatly there was a very noisy table of 8 "ladies" who seemed to think... More

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

I went for job purposes, but finally enjoyed a lot the stay in there. I had the room at the top of the building and althought the climb was steep, the room well deserved it! I loved the full english breakfast, but could not taste the reataurant food. I really recommend this hotel.

Service with a smile. Relaxed and friendly. Fish and chips top quality, a very decent steak and chips and more spectacular sea bass plus lovely coq au vin. Starters before all that were decent, wine list is reasonable, puds are lovely - we all had creme brûlée but were encouraged to vary the accompanying ice cream. We've visited many times... More

Excellent food, pleasant surroundings, wonderful atmosphere and very friendly and attentive staff. What more could one ask for. We got in there without reservations late on a Saturday evening. The owner, Biz, welcomed us and nothing was too much bother. I would happily recommend 'Biztro' to anyone visiting Bampton. Thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks Biz and staff.
