We stopped in Devizes having never been here before for some lunch and came across this bistro. The guy who greeted us was very friendly and made us feel so welcome. The icing on the cake was when he delivered the food, it was exemplary,...More

Can thoroughly recommend the Moroccan Lamb Burger, it was delicious and the sweet potato fries were a great accompaniment. My wife had the Sea Bream which she could not fault. Great friendly service... thanks

Visited The Bistro last evening (23 June) with great expectations. Decor very basic and minimal space per table. Food was OK but failed to provide that little spark necessary to create that WOW factor. Based on the write up I expected a meal that could...More

Peter and staff did it again with an excellent meal for the Devizes Food Festival. Peter explained all the dishes and they had worked hard to find food of the Regency period which suited today's tastes. The penny loafer and foraged butter was exceptional.

Lovely dinner at The Bistro. Excellent choice of gluten free food and knowledgeable recommendations by the lovely host. Well cooked fresh food and good wines. Imaginative puddings too. Friendly relaxed atmosphere and obviously popular with locals too. What a great restaurant!

Really excellent food and really excellent wine. I ordered a bottle of Mexican wine and it turned out to be one of the best reds I've tasted - as thick as engine oil (but much better tasting, of course). The wine had such intense flavour...More

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.
