We've eaten here twice recently and on both occasions had the most delicious steak - amongst the best we've ever eaten. We shared a mezze plate to start which was all freshly made and exceptionally yummy. We finished with a sublime champagne jelly and a...More

This bistro is tucked away down a side road. I managed to get 2 hours of free parking close by near the Devizes bookshop. It's a small cosy restaurant with views out to the side street so I agree with one of the previous reviewers...More

Description
As the original Bistro in Devizes (established 2003) we pride ourselves on being true to the original concept - that is a small, family run establishment (usually with a chef owner) providing a menu that often features slow cooked, seasonal dishes. The setting is traditional in that it is informal, relaxed and cosy. However, we are known for food that 'tickles the tastebuds', is influenced by a range of cuisines and always has The Bistro 'twist" to it. Open both at lunch time and in the evening, we have the distinction of also running a cookery school, now known as Vaughan's Cookery School and operating from another location in the town. Committed to sharing a passion for good food, Chef Peter Vaughan is a member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts and of the Slow Food Movement.
