I called in with a friend during the Bampton Charter Fair at the end of October. Home made, piping hot soup and a brie, bacon and cranberry sandwich were just the ticket for an autumn lunch. The food was very good indeed altough I thought my friend's coffee was served in a rather unappetising way. All staff members were very... More

I go here regularly, on my own, with the kids or friends. It is my favourite café ever. There is always a warm welcome, it's relaxed, the food is excellent. Julia makes the best soups, and the lunch time meals are very good value. The decor and music lends a chilled ambience and you can get lost with a coffee... More

My wife and I love the village of Bampton and were delighted to find Toucan Cafe. The service is very welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The cake selection is delicious and difficult to resist and the lunch menu looks tempting, which I'm sure we'll try on another visit. We will definitely be back when next in... More

If in this charming little village don't walk past without calling in. This is the most welcoming little cafe/bistro with staff to match. Serving tasty lunches or coffee and cake this one of my favourite things to do in this lovely area, plus your pooch is always welcome......go and see, it's super.

Super evening at Toucan last night - food, service and atmosphere were excellent and also had the added benefit of live music by a very talented young singer/songwriter called Alex Hart. Great way to spend an evening - highly recommended

We stopped for a coffee to dodge a shower and were rewarded with an cosy little place with great friendly service and excellent coffee. Bampton is a lovely little town and if you need a coffee this is ideal!

Lovely little bistro in centre of Bampton with super home cooked food at very reasonable prices. Good job I booked as it was full and people kept coming in and either waiting or having to come back. Good sign

An excellent evening with friends at one of the regular Toucan Sausage and Mash nights. They are always oversubscribed and it is easy to see why. A choice of sausages, all delicious and several different mashes, equally delicious followed by scrumptious deserts. We all had a lovely evening - thank you.

I live about half an hour's drive from here and call in on occasion, most recently with friends before Christmas. The home-cooked food is excellent, good coffee (and a selection of beer, wine and cider), and the atmosphere is cosy and welcoming. Plus if you don't know it Bampton is a very attractive little market town with a few shops,... More

Delicious menu - and for veggies! A range of alcohol served too. A great atmosphere and very cosy. My party hire the whole cafe for a private party every year and always have such an enjoyable event here - dishes were piping hot and so tasty. They couldn't be more accommodating for us. A definite visit if you're in the... More
