Housed in the oldest drinking establishment in the town, the venue dates back to 1681 and is situated in Bicester Old Town. The concept is the brainchild of husband and wife team (Anna & Phil) who’ve made the town their home. Thirteen quickly became a living dream fulfilled. Between them the couple have over 40 years experience in the hospitality and entertainment industry.
Phil is the Operations Director of Lucky Voice, the world-famous karaoke bars with venues in places such as London, Manchester, Brighton, and Dubai. Prior to that he’s enjoyed stints at other iconic venues including Fifty St James, The Rex, Roadhouse, Planet Hollywood, Henry’s Cafe Bars and The Gaucho Group.
Anna on the other hand, has cemented a successful career as a model, dancer, choreographer and producer touring the world many times over with names such as Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music, Spirit of the dance with Michael Flatley, The Prodigy and others, her passion for entertainment shows no bounds. Family being at the heart of everything they do, the duo are committed to bringing Bicester a place of fun, quality, familiarity and togetherness. Thanks to their vision and hard-work, the beautiful stone building has taken on some urban twists, and will house an all-day café bar and by day, and serve signature cocktails and premium drinks as the evening drifts into night. Using locally sourced ingredients the food will include exciting bar bites and stunning sharing boards.
Thirteen delivers exceptional service, unrivalled quality, and the hearts and souls of the duo with an infectious love of having a good time.
