My partner suggested we should try here as she had lunched here some time ago and enjoyed the food. The service was good, the food excellent and the relaxed ambience was very nice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant (and hotel).

While staying round the corner at Byfield House we had dinner here one night. Pleasant but unassuming surroundings and a fine meal of wild boar that preserved the gamey taste wonderfully.

We were delighted to find this no fuss honest little bistro where home cooked food is central to their offer. Not cheap but not expensive, we enjoyed the stroganoff with rice and chips. No space for dessert but we saw some great looking bread and butter pudding going out to other appreciative tables of diners there. Recommended!

Visited here for lunch whilst visiting Painswick. Delightful couple run the Bistro and lovely atmosphere in the restaurant itself. My partner had an above average portion of liver, bacon and onions with cajun potatoes and a good selection of vegetables whilst I chose the smoked haddock fishcake (2 provided) with a side salad, chips and a garlic mayonnaise for a very reasonable price. All I can say is that the meals were extremely tasty and our compliments to the chef for providing such exceptional home produced fayre. We will be back!

Two couples, booked wisely as it was very busy on a Saturday night. Unhurried service, but also no rush to vacate the table. Service very friendly by all concerned good choice of food over three courses, with a number of specials. All fresh food. Reasonable wine list, but only two bottled beers (both foreign) and one bottled cider.
