I can honestly say that Lils is the best value for money restaurant in Witney!! Not only is the food superb but you will find it really hard to meet such a warm and friendly team elsewhere!! Top marks from the Witney Irish crew!!!

“Much more than just a burger bar!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

We had never been to Fat Lil's and will certainly go again. Pizza was freshly made from scratch and excellent value at £5. The Supreme Nachos were enormous and delicious. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Bargain!

“Rock 'n Roll Baby!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Fat Lil's is without doubt my favourite venue in Witney! It has everything.
The Bar 'n Grill has an extensive Tex Mex menu with italian influences.
Budweiser on draught and DUFF beer in bottles (yes the cartoon brand!) Proper Milk Shakes, Unique Burgers (Squeeze the cheese is a MUST!) Authentic Pizza's (how they should be!) crispy fries and gigantic beer battered onion rings!
Sunday evening is Banquet night and you get a starter, main and dessert for just £10 and there are various offers through the week 'Taco Tuesday' and any Pizza for £5 on another night (Thursday?)!
The family run business has staff who are are friendly, efficient and always go out of there way to make sure you get exactly what you want... A shot glass full of jelly beans with the bill is the icing on the cake! - and i'm only half way there! The Owners are always on hand to chat about music, food, the weather or anything else that you want to talk about and after a few minutes of conversation, you know the secret to their success... a fusion of good old fashioned hospitality, great food and atmosphere!
Through the black door to the left of the bar and grill is the entrance to one of the planet's COOOOLEST live music and comedy clubs! Only the best band's get to play here and all of the money taken at the door goes straight to the performers! There is a huge selection of beers, ciders and liquor.. cocktails and shots for any pallet.
I don't get to go out much these days, but when i do, I go to Fat Lils!
New Years Eve was one of the greatest nights out i have ever had!

“Great food, great place, great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Have been a regular visitor of Fat Lils the bar so was looking forward to trying the new grill when it opened. It has the feel of a restaurant atmosphere but just cooler like going to a trendy bar. Food was gorgeous, didn't take too long and good prices. Will go again.

“Awesome”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

I've long been a loyal patron of Fat Lil's and was delighted when the bar and grill opened last year. If you're looking for classic American diner dishes done the old school way, you really can't go wrong. The Squeeze the cheese burger is a personal favourite - wonderfully appropriating the innovative 'cheese skirt' found in the Northern California Chain, The Squeeze Inn's burgers. Friendly staff, some awesome rotating specials, and food challenge not for the faint hearted! The latter being something I'd like to see more of in the UK. Keep up the great work, guys! :)
