Came here in search of a place to get brunch with my mother in Chipping Norton as a midpoint when we were both in the area. Found it quite by accident but it's a lovely place with pleasing and modern decor that isn't at odds with the exposed wooden beams that are characteristic of the old town. Breakfast menu is... More

Popped in without a reservation for a Friday night dinner and was lucky to get a table. The atmosphere was great and the service prompt and friendly. The food was delicious, served piping hot and very nicely presented.Despite being very busy we didn't have to wait very long. Overall a great experience and we would revisit

We visited on a very busy Wednesday evening after work arriving at about 20.00 It was packed but the very friendly barman said he could probably get us a table within about ten minutes. Perfect. We ordered drinks & there was our table. We ordered two Bitter & Twisted burgers, both on brioche buns with a side of fries, one... More

Sat in the outside seating area in the sun, which was great. Really good range of food and for all tastes / budgets. Landlord ale was particularly tasty too. The coronation chicken salad and Nachos were very tasty and good value. Friendly attentive staff. Would definitely return.

We visited Chipping Norton last night to celebrate a couple of birthdays with our friends. Before going onto the restaurant we had booked for later in the evening we popped into the Bitter & Twisted Bar for a quick drink. The surroundings were extremely comfortable and relaxing and the service was fantastic. We were immediately shown a table to seat... More

I have been here several times and never been disappointed with a single meal, on this occasion I came in for Sunday lunch. The service was fantastic but the food was even better! For starter I had homemade soup with homemade focacchia. The soup was piping hot and full of flavour, and the bread was fresh, tasty and very moreish,... More

Well thought of locally but not for me as a pub. The beer is "cellar cooled" and tastes like lager but the list of cocktails is endless and that says it all... We did not eat there but the burgers and other food I saw being served looked to be good. I am sure that many people would have a... More
