Since opening Coffeesmith in 2014, we've been really honoured to have been consistently no 1 in the tea & coffee category on TripAdvisor for Witney. We're also consistently in the top 3 for all restaurants in Witney - no mean feat when you consider the vast array of eating options in town! We think that it's no coincidence that the top rated places locally are all independent.
We do believe that we offer the best coffee in Witney, Faringdon and Bourton on the Water, but just calling yourself the best, doesn't mean a thing without feedback- our reviews and ratings bear this out. We encourage all feedback and are aware of course that we can't please everyone, all of the time. At the end of the day though, chill out- it's just coffee!
We encourage you to seek out the best places that Witney and the surrounding areas have to offer- here are some of our favourites, for coffee and more:
Brew, 75B Banbury Road, Oxford OX2 6LX
We are often in Summertown and we always pop into Brew whilst we're waiting. Serving coffee from Round Hill in Radstock, we know that our flat white will be a good one. North Parade is a tiny little jewel of a street and a food lover's delight with the iconic Gees around the corner, and the North Parade deli and The Rose & Crown pub to visit too. Artur is a friend and we look forward to seeing his exciting new venture on George Street (opening soon!)
Jolly Nice, Frampton Mansell, Stroud, Gloucestershire GL6 8HZ
In an old service station site on the main A419, this is an eclectic little farm shop, tepee, florists and butchery. They do an excellent burger and the ice cream is out of this world. Worth a special trip!
La Bobina, Bromsgrove, Faringdon SN7 7JF
Buzzy atmosphere and consistently good tapas in this converted haberdashery shop, a stone's throw from The Rookery.
The Blanket Hall, 100 High Street, Witney OX28 6HL
Eleanor Martin runs a tight ship here- the restoration of this beautiful heritage site does her and her parents (of Cotswold Woollen Weavers), great credit. A part of Witney's heritage has been saved for the town. Admire the beautiful interiors, buy a Witney blanket and enjoy one of their regular pie-nights.
The Olive Branch, 66 Corn Street, Witney OX28 6BS
Cheap eats abound here but the delicious veggie wraps and friendly service are a cut above the usual 'kebab' style fare.
