Just popped in for a coffee and asked if they could make an Irish coffee for me. They weren't sure of how to make it but made a great effort! Very accommodating wish we had more time to spend here.

Dear Claireypoo Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I was tickled to hear about Jean and her efforts to make you an Irish coffee, she usually works in the mornings so hasn't been asked before. I did some extra training today to brush up her skills so come back soon and see how she gets on... More

We love visiting the Bistro with friends for drinks and nibbles. It's a nice atmosphere with plenty of cocktails to choose from, I've also fallen in love with the tapas dishes especially the chorizo balls 👌 I highly recommend the Bistro to any couples, friends or families if you want a nice relaxed atmosphere in the centre of Chipping Campden...

Tasty food and first class service. Nicely decorated interior with excellent housekeeping. Chipping Campden is a lovely unspoilt Cotswold town and the bistro a lovely place to lunch

My wife organised a birthday spa day and we popped in here for lunch. Food and drink were good, the service however was exceptional. The Scottish girl (failed to make a note of her name) was so friendly and helped my wife pull out a lovely surprise. I hope her wedding goes well.

We have been here last year and enjoyed our meal, this year they have had a refurbishment, and it's now very casual -but still enjoyable. It can be a little stuffy, when you first arrive, but the staff do eventually put you at ease. I think they are used to the hotel customers, and don't quite know who to be... More

We enjoyed excellent hospitality over two lunchtime visits. The food was sumptuous and the surroundings had a calm and cheerful ambience. First class waiting staff were highly welcoming to both ourselves and our dog.

We enjoyed a very enjoyable dinner in the bistro. The food was very well prepared and the service excellent. The atmosphere was very relaxed. It’s so convenient to have a really good restaurant within the hotel.

We fancied a light bite to eat so visited the Bistro. We hoped for just a sandwich - we received the best club sandwich I had ever eaten with fresh tasting lovely ingredients. Basic food with a twist of luxury.

We seem to be finding ourselves coming back to Chipping Campden on a Saturday. Each time we have tried different places for lunch. We have been to the Bistro 3 times now previous and each time its been busier and busier. The first time we came there was a lovely Scottish lady, who told us we could bring dogs into... More

Went in here for lunch and had tapas. Gorgeous food, great service. Only had small dishes due to going in the spa, but watching the other meals go past, looked wonderful. Friends recommended the stuffed peppers, and the bread and olive oil was lovely
