We had lunch at the Bistro on the Square, part of the Cotswold House Hotel. The welcome and service by the staff was first class, the decor and seating was good with an adequate menu with a good range of light tapas to traditional type meals. One of our party is a vegetarian but had no problem in menu choices.... More

After eating the beautiful breakfast and staying at the luxurious hotel, we didnt expect the food in the Bistro to be so different. Food was really basic and tasteless. Not at all the same class. They were very good and took my starter off the bill. Go to the Noel arms over the road. Delicious!

After a stroll round Chipping Campden decided to call in for a light bite. We settled on a sharing platter for two, and were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and attentive and the place had a nice vibe about it. Would not hesitate to go back.

As locals we popped into The Bistro for a quick drink on a Friday night. There's a great cocktail menu and all the gins you could possibly want. The staff were very friendly and after saying we were only popping in for one drink, we ended up staying a lot longer. We had a great evening, and will be going... More

Just popped in for a coffee and asked if they could make an Irish coffee for me. They weren't sure of how to make it but made a great effort! Very accommodating wish we had more time to spend here.

Dear Claireypoo Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I was tickled to hear about Jean and her efforts to make you an Irish coffee, she usually works in the mornings so hasn't been asked before. I did some extra training today to brush up her skills so come back soon and see how she gets on... More

We love visiting the Bistro with friends for drinks and nibbles. It's a nice atmosphere with plenty of cocktails to choose from, I've also fallen in love with the tapas dishes especially the chorizo balls 👌 I highly recommend the Bistro to any couples, friends or families if you want a nice relaxed atmosphere in the centre of Chipping Campden...
