    Just ok. Service not great. We stood at the door for a long while before being served (we had booked a table). Multiple staff walked past us, even if it is not their job to seat us, they could have at least acknowledged us. We were served quickly at the table and the food came quick. We were offered the bill as soon as we’d finished eating, clearly couldn’t get us out quick enough. There were flies in the restaurant, one couple sat down and left 5 mins later because of this. Food was nice, but they had ran out of mushrooms which left the veggie options limited. All in all, ok but not the best, don’t think we will be returning.

    One of the starters arrived cold and should of been hot as it was a sausage roll. Main course batter on fish not cooked, no vegetables inc in half roast chicken, and vegetables with salmon main were limited. Won’t go back and would not recommend.

    We actually ate here twice in one day - one for a ‘picky’ lunch and coffee, after a 2hr drive to meet in the middle each. Then we booked for 6pm that evening and we spent too long catching up earlier in the day over lunch, meaning we needed to push our 6pm dinner back to 6.30pm. They were very accommodating and made this happen! Prawns to start, salmon for main were both delicious! The pudding was a little disappointing, as they had no brownie or apple pie left, so I chose the victoria sponge - this was a bit disappointing. It was dry and tasted like it had just come out of the fridge as the buttercream was solid. The only disappointment. A range of drinks - coffee, cold drinks, wine, gin and TRIPP juices. I sat on the sofas waiting for a friend for a while with a laptop to catch up with some work. The staff were all very attentive.

    Booked a table prior to coming to Bicester Village as I thought it would be better than trying to get a table somewhere, still had to wait over 15 mins from the time of our booking to be seated. Once seated sat there for ages before we were even asked if we wanted a drink. Menu really poor especially as we have someone who is coeliac in our family doesn’t show what’s gluten free on menus. Food was overpriced for what we received. All in all wouldn’t go here again.

    The food at farm shop was ok, my friend asked for scrambled eggs instead of poached which we were told the couldn’t do…. The food seemed a little over priced for a very simple breakfast. And when we finished out breakfast there was a clear rush to try and get us out and off the table.

    Really disappointed with the menu , we have visited the farm shop many times over the past few years and it was one of our favourite restaurants to go to but the whole menu has changed since our last visit . There is very little choice and the quality has changed , the food was nice but we’d pre booked our table so once seated we had to make the most of it or leave and find somewhere else that had availability at that time of the evening . It’s a real shame as it was outstanding on our last visit, sadly tho we doubt we’ll return when we are next at Bicester and we’ll probably try another restaurant instead.

    I booked in advance and requested a gluten free afternoon tea for one of the guests, no knowledge of the request on arrival. 1 toilet out of order the other blocked! 1 afternoon tea arrived and I have to say it was stale! Not a great experience, luckily I was with really good friends!

    The food was lovely & the service was great. However, after being seated I asked if we could move somewhere warmer. At this point we were informed the heating had been broken for 2 days now & since the restaurant was closing in 2 days for refurbishment they had decided to remain open. Everyone was eating in their coats as it was so cold & the food barely stayed warm once it arrived. We were charged full price with service on top. Not offer of a discount for the cold ambience. No advance warning before or on arrival about the broken heating. We only found out after complaining & there was nothing offered to compensate. It smacked of taking customers for as much money as possible given they had a captive audience with little alternative venues available in the Village. I won't chose to go there again & I won't recommend it. But .... had they done something just to sweeten the situation or even forewarned us, I would have cut them some slack. No reflection on the chefs or waiting staff - just a very poor reflection on the management ....

    We asked for an allergen menu and was not provided with one, instead the waitress said she could confirm allergens. She could not and my friend had to reorder food after being told her original dish did not have the allergen but turns out it did and she had to order new food. During this the rest of the tables order was still put through to the kitchen so while us two received our food our friend still not had not ordered hers. This all could have been avoided if you had provided the allergen menu which you are legally required to do. The food tasted good but the issues with the allergen was a big problem for us, and we were still charged the service fee after all of that.

    We visited whilst enjoying a shopping day at Bicester for my friends birthday. Absolutely cannot fault the service at the Farmshop. We were immediately shown to our seats and within minutes were presented with Bellinis by the restaurant manager (didn’t catch his name - but thank you!) it was a lovely treat and completely unexpected. Food was absolutely delicious and arrived at our table within no more than 15 minutes of ordering. The decor is stunning and very true to the branding of Soho Farmhouse. The ambience is very pleasant and the music is just fab… such a fun atmosphere to dine. Highly recommend! We will be back!

    All-round great restaurant. Well-placed in Bicester village, surrounded by great shopping, and the interior ambience is beautiful and rustic. Food was very satisfying - I got the vegan burger and chips, which was very hearty and delicious; my partner got the plant-based rigatoni bolognese, which was absolutely brilliant too. Service was outstanding, we felt extremely welcome and well taken care of, and the time to service was very efficient. The place does tend to get a bit loud with all the people and music, but you can comfortably converse without having to shout. Would definitely recommend!

    All diners including myself were eating with their coats on it was freezing in the restaurant. Food arrived tepid and turned cold quickly. When greeted at the door 2 mins late for our booking we were abruptly asked if we called to inform them and an eye roll followed when we explained that we didn't realise we were 2 mins late
