It’s consistently good here. Throw at them that you are diary and gluten intolerant and they don’t blink an eyelid. Very friendly, beautifully put together food. We all enjoyed everything we had. Thanks!

Had a lovely lunch.....calamari....followed by their famous fish and chips. t he staff are very friendly and attentive. If I had a complaint it would be that the tables are too close together, feel as though you are dining with the table next to you....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.
