Incredibly bad espresso at a very high price. Not recommended at all. Espresso was extremely watery and at the same time the most expansive one which I had in UK.More

We were happy to find this bistro after walking to Chipping Campden from Hidcote Garden. We especially enjoyed the bread selection, the pork loin and the chicken breast. If you are seeking a delicious meal in a casual setting this is the place to go.
