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.

A delightful dinner for 2. The menu was imaginative and we both struggled to choose. Our appetizers and mains were beautifully presented and very tasty. Service was very friendly and discrete. What a delight to have a quality bistro in the local area...a vast improvement on the general pub grub available elsewhere. Very surprised to see negative feedback from others.... More

Visited last night with a group - the Bampton Beam Supper Club for the second time in two months. This could become a bit of a habit! Lovely reception in the pretty terraced garden, a fabulous 'Kate & Sydney' Pie, with fresh vegetables and a fine bottle of wine. Great service as always - will be back very soon!

I ate here with some other members of the family, and I have to say that it was seriously underwhelming. I didn't foot the bill on this occasion, so I can't say anything about value for money, but given the quality of the food - it wouldn't really make much difference. A majority of the meals served were over cooked,... More

Dear S1_812 I am surprised and upset to receive this review. Surely if you have such strong opinions it would have been more helpful to tell us about them when you dined, we would have done our best to rectify the problems, we will do our best now. Best wishes Biz More

Just finished our meal at Biztro, and we had such a lovely meal, i had to write about it. First impressions from walking in were lovely. Greeted by Bizz, the owner. We were promtly shown to our table and offered drinks. Try the cotswold lager, its great. We had bread and olives at the table with balsamic and olive oil... More

We recently dined at Biztro in Bampton, a quaint Oxfordshire village in the Cotswolds. The restaurant is in a lovely old building and there was a warm, lively atmosphere as most tables had diners when we arrived. Starters - we both chose the Moules Marinière. When the dishes turned up they smelt delicious, but I subsequently discovered a number of... More

Dear JBizzzay Thank you for you review. You have asked me to respond so I will do my best. I am sorry that you found the meal less than perfect. However, you did eat it and appeared to be happy at the time. Firstly you mention the moules mariniere, this can be cooked with shallots or onion. If you Google... More

We were really well looked after by Bizz and the girls who work with her and as a family we enjoyed it so much our son has... More

We had dinner at Biztro last week. The food and servive were great. It is a casual restaurant with top quality food. We had the risotto with asparagus and a salad with chicken and bacon. Risotto had a nice lemon zest to it. Salad greens were wonderful, and the chicken was not overcooked (something that I find all too often).... More
