Great, family run local restaurant. One of our favourites! :-) It's popular though so best to book (something that we often forget to do and leave disappointed!).

This is a small restaurant in the lovely village of Bampton (otherwise known as Downton village from the tv series). Strolling through the streets looking for somewhere to eat before going home we came across Biztro. It was very early and we had the place almost to ourselves. We were looked after by Emma, and nothing was too much trouble... More

Lovely food chosen from a wide but not exhaustive (always a good sign IMO) washed down with a very nice chilled Pinot Gris. Great value, served in a friendly and unobtrusive manner. The terrace out the back had a lovely summer evening atmosphere; Busy without being loud it was a great way to enjoy a lovely evening meal

Good food from a restricted menu but that is not a fault. Service prompt and friendly. We will return

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.

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.

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
