Description: Located in the luxurious Cotswold House in the centre of Campden, Bistro-on-the-Square is the hub of the hotel, serving drinks snacks and meals throughout the day, including morning coffee, brunch and sandwiches. The Bistro has its own street entrance, an open fire and bar, as well as al-Fresco dining in the summer, on our huge garden terrace with its own garden bar. Our specialty is a relaxed and informal dining experience with sharing platters, tapas, grills, and salads. We have a wide menu to suit all tastes, including children's menu and dietary requirements. We pride ourselves on the extensive range of Gins with various tonics and interesting garnishes. Our extensive wines by the glass range means you can enjoy a glass of superior wine without investing in a bottle. Our cocktails are shaken to order and we will happily take requests. One of the few eateries in Chipping Campden to be serving a full menu all day 7 days a week. Full afternoon Tea is available in Fig 7 days

We stayed in the hotel last weekend on the Ultimate Gourmet Experience. The second night included Gin Tasting and Dinner in The Bistro.

There wasn’t a lot a detail in the package description so we didn’t really know what to expect. We had booked for 8:30 but we were advised to bring the booking forward as the Gin Tasting could take 1 and a half to 2 hours.
We arrived about 7 O’Clock and The Bistro was busy. We were met by the bar manager and he set us up two stools at the bar. We talked about what we would normally drink and discussed ideas of different gin / accompaniments that we would like to try. G&T is my drink of choice but my husband isn’t normally a gin drinker as not a fan of tonic.
We started with what was described as “Traditional” gin an tonic and then moved on. Some of our favourites were Hendricks with Elderflower Tonic and cucumber, Cotswold gin with water melon, Martin Millers with strawberry and black pepper and Monkey 47 with mixed berries
We enjoyed eight different gin and tonics and a sharing platter of baked Camembert.
The gin tasting was included as part of our package staying at the hotel but you could book just the gin tasting which I would definitely recommend.

We then had dinner in The Bistro. Our package included a £35 credit to per person. I had the. Cured meat platter and Mussels - both were delicious. We couldn’t manage a dessert and opted to have a coffee instead. The only slight criticism was that we couldn’t have the coffee wasn’t taken out of our I used credit and we had to pay for it.

It was a fantastic evening, which I haven’t stopped telling people about since we got back.

The Bistro is quality dining located in the Cotswolds House Hotel. Of the two restaurants located within the hotel, the Bistro is more casual and moderate in price. The menu is pretty broad and includes a large number of small bite or appetizer type items. There is a full bar and a good wine selection available. Service is good and entree prices are largely in the £14-18 per range.

The Bistro is a good choice for lunch or dinner.

Met friends and had lunch today at The Cotswold House Brasserie. Chipping Campden.
Nice friendly staff. Modern café type decor. I had the beetroot salad with chic peas nuts and seeds which was a delicious 'starter'. I then had the hake as a main course which was also a very tasty meal . All in all a very nice place to eat in an exceptionally beautiful town !

Was visiting the Cotswold and decided to have dinner and drinks before heading home. Great ambience and wonderfully cooked food that should be rewarded. Service was good and the cocktails are done with desire they obviously train their staff to do these correctly as most places normally cannot get it right. They have obviously spent some money on this place and look forward to trying their a la Carte restaurant next time. Thanks everyone for looking after us.

My partner and I stopped here simply for a coffee after a short walk around the town. The coffee tasted fresh, the surroundings were pleasant and the barman was smiley and polite so this place gets a thumbs up from us!
