The hummus we ordered did not have any salt and was lumpy. We had pasta (penne) which were way over cooked with a tasteless sauce. The side salad red oignon and heirloom tomatoes was... More

Good food, good friendly staff, good value. Varied menu. Would definitely return. The Bistro is the place to go if you want to try different Gins as they have a large selection and offer a Gin tasting session.

After eating the beautiful breakfast and staying at the luxurious hotel, we didnt expect the food in the Bistro to be so different. Food was really basic and tasteless. Not at all the same class. They were very good and took my starter off the bill. Go to the Noel arms over the road. Delicious!

The menu offers a wide range of choices and the food and service is excellent. Geoff and his team are very efficient, polite and helpful - they know their drinks and are happy to recommend local...

After a stroll round Chipping Campden decided to call in for a light bite. We settled on a sharing platter for two, and were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and attentive and the place had a nice vibe about it. Would not hesitate to go back.

As locals we popped into The Bistro for a quick drink on a Friday night. There's a great cocktail menu and all the gins you could possibly want. The staff were very friendly and after saying we were only popping in for one drink, we ended up staying a lot longer. We had a great evening, and will be going... More
