We were with friends who have used this restaurant before and we were celebrating meeting up again. Despite very rainy weather outside, we enjoyed warmth and great food inside. The quality of the cuisine is second to none. It's a shame it's so far from our home in Derbyshire.

Don't tell the owners, but this midweek deal including a six-course tasting menu is wonderful value. We enjoyed a birthday meal with friends that was truly memorable from the first canape onwards. Each of the courses was well-conceived and executed, with a well-chosen glass of wine to accompany each one. The portion sizes were well judged to make the whole... More

Top quality, Michelin-level food in a charming, informal restaurant. Prices are quite reasonable considering the quality and care on offer.

We went here for our anniversary and weren't sure what to expect. The service was lovely and very swift and we were made to feel very welcome. Drinks were offered on arrival whilst waiting for our table and we were served an appetiser too. The meals were all delicious and this still remains the only local place j can have... More

This is a lovely restaurant with great quality well cooked food. I'd describe the style as wholesome provincial French. Great quality ingredients, nicely put together in big portions. The dinner started out spectacularly with some wonderful appetisers including pork crackling, that had been ironed flat and served with a mustard sauce. I then had the home made boudin noir to...

Went here on a recommendation, what can I say WOW from the start of our stay to the end a truly wonderful experience. We went on a deal for a mid week break including a six course taster menu. The bedroom was at the front of the hotel overlooking a small square very quaint, the room was well equipped and... More

We had visited Montgomery, which we like very much, and were horrified to learn, from my stepson, that we had missed a Michelin star venue. He had visited and whilst he enjoyed the food he complained about the service. These young kids know nothing!!! Service was friendly and top notch and the food was excellent. Had intended the tasting menu... More

I've eaten here on four occasions. The first of these my wife and I had the tasting menu and had I reviewed this place then I would have given it five stars. Based on my last two visits it's dropped to four stars and is beginning to lose its appeal. The cooking remains accomplished and enjoyable and at these prices... More
