With a couple of hours notice Bistro 14 accommodated our family for a stunningly delicious Sunday lunch. With an extensive and tempting menu we chose a variety of meals, from the Sunday roast special pork to honey roast butternut risotto, delicate sea bass to succulent chicken stuffed with chorizo, all accompanied with delicious vegetables. We declined starters in order to... More

Went here on a wet Saturday evening which may account for the fact there were only two other tables occupied all evening. The food is really good. The prawn cocktail is one of the best I've had. Rump of lamb nicely done. Friendly staff albeit seeming a little bored on that night. - just one of those nights ! If... More

Crispy duck starter which was wet and soggy. Waitress wasn't concerned about it when I mentioned it, dressing on my salad was far too much which ruined my meal. Didn't bother with the dessert. Not particularly welcoming and lack of atmosphere.

Ate here recently with friends and it always amazes me that the quality never slips. The food is simply to die for (particularly the scallops starter and pork belly main course) Although it could do with a lick of paint just to brighten it back up that really doesn't deter you from enjoying the food and overall experience. The staff... More

We had a lovely meal - the service was pleasant, friendly and unhurried. My daughter said the pork she had for her main course was the best she had ever had, and the sticky toffee pudding I had for a dessert was definitely the best I have tasted. All the courses were lovely.

We had a superb dinner here with friends and would happily recommend it to anyone. The food was cooked fresh so don't expect to eat too quickly but enjoy some happy conversation with friends whilst you wait!

We eat out quite a lot and have just had a brill meal. This is probably my favourite restaurant in the area for food, they do lots of fish, but the atmos hasn't quite found a balance. Would recommend for lovely fresh food.
