We came for lunch on a wet day and wanted to see if we could have something reasonably priced but more interesting than the chains of restaurants on the main high street. Just a few minutes walk away and we each had a two course delight. All of our dishes were gluten free including a homemade gluten free bread with... More

My friend (who is vegetarian) and I had a sharing platter which was delicious. All elements of the platter were fairly typical (hummus, salad, falafel, etc.) but all were incredibly tasty and beautifully fresh. The bread, made in the restaurant was a star for me - gorgeous. I had the day's special - Seabass with bacon & artichoke - also... More

Rebecca was extremely helpful from booking a table, through to choice of our meals, which included an off-menu choice to suit the 10 year old in our party. All the dishes we were chose were delicious. Will definitely go again!

Went with friends to The Bistro last night and couldn't have wished for better, great food, wine and atmosphere. Rebecca, Tom & Liam made the whole evening relaxing and enjoyable. We will be back.

We have only just discovered this little gem of a bistro. We have been there for dinner twice now and look forward to eating there many more times. Ambience, service, food and wine are first class and the price is very reasonable for such quality food. We were so well looked after on both occasions - thank you!

Stopped for lunch today, we were originally planning to just have a light bite but ended up having three courses (sharing a starter and sweet). All courses were exceptionally tasty. Service was also really friendly and efficient. We will definitely be visiting again! Just need to re-furbish the loo, and it will be perfect.

Reading other reviews, I am suprised. My partner and I were on a weekend break and this restaurant looked ideal and the menu looked intresting. I started with the falafels. They were hard and dry, not soft and fluffy as I have had many times in the past. Partner had pheasant pate (by a fancy name). She thought this was... More

Eat here regularly and Peter's food is always excellent. I usually have something I've not had before and have never been disappointed. Highly recommended.

We were looking for some where warm to thaw that would accept 2 people plus small Terrier. Very friendly staff so what was meant to be a coffee and bun became several coffees , rarebit and a wrap. The rarebit was the first time I have had a proper cheesy reduced sauce rather than industrial cheddar welded to toast in... More

Description
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 Kitchen and operating from another location in the town. Committed to sharing a passion for good food, Chef Peter Vaughan is a member of the Academy of Culinary Arts and of the Slow Food Movement.
