New Openings To Have On Your Radar

SL skincare favourite Omorovicza has just opened its doors, whilst REN Clean Skincare and Anastasia Beverly Hills add to the Village’s new stellar beauty offering. Middle Eastern retail site The Modist, famed for its carefully curated edit of modest designer fashion, has its first ever European pop-up at Bicester, which remains open until 24th September.

Where To Eat

From cafes for a quick pitstop to restaurants for a long, leisurely lunch, the range of foodie spots at Bicester is expansive. Head to the newly opened Café Wolseley, a little sister to Piccadilly’s iconic brasserie, for favourites including Chicken Salad, Chicken Schnitzel and Smoked Haddock Kedgeree, along with popular additions such as seasonal salads, pizzas and a choice of pasta dishes. The farmshop restaurant and café is the brainchild of the uber-cool Soho House group, and offers everything from their signature salads to sweet treats, plus there’s a new Asian spot, Shan Shui, for crispy wasabi prawns and zesty cucumber salads.

Where To Snack

When you’re in need of a pick-me-up, turn to premium cookie brand Blondies Kitchen (opening at Bicester on October 1st) or try luxe eclairs from Parisian patisserie Maitre Choux. Keep your eyes peeled for Doughnut Time, opening on the 1st October, which looks set to deliver on killer flavours like raspberry plum jam, sweet caramel and red velvet topped with cookies and cream.
