Description: Located in the luxurious Cotswold House in the centre of Campden, Bistro-on-the-Square is the hub of the hotel, serving drinks snacks and meals throughout the day, including morning coffee, brunch and sandwiches. The Bistro has its own street entrance, an open fire and bar, as well as al-Fresco dining in the summer, on our huge garden terrace with its own garden bar. Our specialty is a relaxed and informal dining experience with sharing platters, tapas, grills, and salads. We have a wide menu to suit all tastes, including children's menu and dietary requirements. We pride ourselves on the extensive range of Gins with various tonics and interesting garnishes. Our extensive wines by the glass range means you can enjoy a glass of superior wine without investing in a bottle. Our cocktails are shaken to order and we will happily take requests. One of the few eateries in Chipping Campden to be serving a full menu all day 7 days a week. Full afternoon Tea is available in Fig 7 days

Cannot agree with all the people hating on the Cotswold Grill. Had a wonderful lunch there, staff were friendly and attentive without being at all invasive. The menu isn't expansive but the food was perfectly executed (in particular a treacle tart) and the portions were pretty good value. A great experience and in a truly exceptional location

Travelling through the town and thought that the restaurant looked nice. However, the food was bland, service very slow and one side dish failed to materialise. No apology forthcoming so I asked for optional service charge to be removed from my bill. Still no apology!

Dear Mike C

May 2017
Whilst I must apologise for any poor experience you received in 2015, the review is no longer relevant to the restaurant that now occupies the site. The business has changed, been re branded and is a different look, identity, staff, and menu.

We do hope you drop by some time and try again, and hopefully we will have the opportunity to show you how much it has changed and that what may have happened all that time ago (whilst still affecting our ranking) is no longer relevant to this restaurant.

I would happy to show you around, and personally oversee your visit.

Kind Regards
Craig Webb

The food here is excellent throughout, and the service is very attentive.

An excellent place for us to share a dinner with our friends, and the wine was a wide selection, reasonably priced.

The only niggle was that the bread had to be paid for, and the portions of cheese, given the price, were very small.

However, that apart, each course was well prepared and delicious, and the four of us all had different choices, so they do a good spread.

We all would return, and would all return.

Food was OK. Breakfast not so good. Expect fine dining style and price! With hindsight I would have eaten elsewhere.

Ate here in Sept. '13 because we thought the menu looked good. Food was nothing special. Terrible fish and chips. Service was also not so great.
