Muddy says: Taking Bicester by storm, Thirteen (winners of Muddy’s Best Bar 2018) is a fabulous all day cafe/bar with rooms, and a super-friendly, fun vibe.
Muddy Awards winner of Best Bar 2018, Thirteen is shaking up the Bicester social scene. Housed in the oldest drinking establishment in town (dating back to 1681), it effortlessly morphs from all day cafe/bar to cocktail and premium drinks venue in the evening, serving bar bites and sharing platters of charcuterie, cheese, and salads with cakes and pastries to finish off. Live music, quiz nights, afternoon tea, cocktail masterclasses and musical bingo are among the events they run with more exciting things to come.
As well as the food and drinks (Amaretto Sour, Espresso Martini, Mojito anyone?), what makes Thirteen special are owners Anna and Phil who together share over 40 years in the hospitality and entertainment businesses. Phil is currently Operations Director of Lucky Voice Karaoke bars and Anna has toured the world as a dancer, choreography and producer with the likes of Bryan Ferry and the Prodigy. They know how to have a good time (Muddy can vouch for that!) and their aim is to make Thirteen the most fun, friendly and enjoyable place to hang out in Bicester and beyond. And if you can’t bear to drag yourself away, they even have bedrooms in which to rest your weary head.
