We ventured out today for a drive and for Sunday Lunch. Unfortunately struggled on the Sunday Lunch front and could only get into Bistro on the Square. Very tidy place, not very busy and we were seated quickly. Not the fastest of service and we waited for menus, drinks etc. The Menu was varied - Tapas and the more traditional... More

We were in this beautiful village, and were choosing places for lunch. From the outside it looked most inviting. The reception area is extremely pleasant, and venture into the bar and the welcome is exactly the same. We sat in the area which is slightly raised with a few tables not far from the bar. The lady serving was young... More

Sooooooo quiet in here which for a Friday night was a surprise. Great service, nicely spaced tables and lovely food. Extensive selection of starters. Slightly pricy and lacked atmosphere.

Whilst staying at the Cotswold House Hotel (excellent place), I tried the Bistro on the Square for diner. It is a small but stylish restaurant with a nice friendly atmosphere to it. Service was top notch and helpful. The food was of excellent quality. Portions are on the small side, but I like it that way. None of this overflowing... More

We didn't want too much to eat and had a good choice of tapas or small meal and snack dishes. We enjoyed slow cooked pork which came with roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and tasty gravy. They weren't too rushed so we spent the afternoon there, hiding from the cold.

This is a beautiful cafe/restaurant. We didn't realise that they were dog friendly until we were invited in by a very charming,Scottish young woman , named Jean. We have made a number of return visits & always receive the same welcome & high standard of service, not forgetting the delicious coffee.

Third time in one week at the Bistro. Why? Well there are many reasons- 1. It's child friendly with a nice selection of food. 2. It's clean- ambient and airy to sit in. 3. The staff are very good and accommodating. Especially "Geof" who was hard working, polite and always had attention to detail. 4. Food was really good- served... More

The bistro is ok , but Chef , please be more generous with servings. If i order a main course moules mariniere for 13 quid , i expect a huge steaming tanker of molluscs dripping with creamy sauce, not some dainty bowl as might have been served to Oliver Twist.

We've tried a couple of the recommended restaurants in Chipping Camden and found that we rather liked the food in the Bistro more. Nothing fancy but their Cornish Mussels in garlic cream, Wild mushroom risotto with fresh truffle and the Seafood platter were very good. The menu is a little limited though.

We were looking for something a bit more casual than the dining room, but not a pub and the bistro met our needs well. The fresh buratta and heirloom salad was perfectly dressed with a nice balsamic, and our mains well prepared. My husband had the chicken special and I had the rump steak. We both enjoyed them very much,... More
