Sub Rosa Café - Bistro

“Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” – Harriet Van Horne

About Us

Sub Rosa (under the rose) is a Latin phrase, which denotes secrecy or confidentiality.
The rose as a symbol of secrecy has an ancient history and we have safely placed it in a 1600s building right in the heart of historical town of Faringdon in Oxfordshire.

Our Greek & Mediterranean dishes are prepared using the best ingredients by our skilful Chefs, ensuring the Sub Rosa gastronomic experience will always give you a reason to keep coming back for more of our “Secrets”.

We live in a fast-paced culture where convenient foods are an essential way of life, and there is something extraordinary about meals that are prepared without the requirements of being quick and easy.
Preparing beautiful Mediterranean dishes is a pure expression of love and passion, both for food and those for whom you’re cooking.
Fresh, colourful ingredients with bold flavors make our meals healthy, delicious, and aesthetically appealing.

Take this trip to our Greek -Mediterranean cuisine and experience the variety of our freshly baked breads everyday used for Breakfast & Lunch and freshly made pastries and cakes for your Afternoon Tea & Coffee along with a variety of meals we prepare for you throughout the day.

Our unique and vintage atmosphere will take you to a truly memorable dining experience that celebrates the diversity of our wonderful Greek and Mediterranean ingredients cooked with imagination and passion. The Sub Rosa passion.
