Tasty food, lively atmosphere, charming restaurant in the town centre

The menu offered a great choice, our dinner was delicious and the service was good. My parents recommended the restaurant and we travelled 60 miles to enjoy our evening there

I treated my boyfriend to a three course lunch at Froggies for his birthday. The food was very delicious and authentic tasting French cuisine. We were greeted very warmly by the staff and the waitress who originally took our order was very polite and attentive. Unfortunately, the young girl who bought over our drinks, bread, cutlery and food had no... More

Want a typically french experience on your doorstep ? This is the place to go. Having lived in Paris we've eaten at plenty of Parisian bistros and this is as near as you can get to the real thing. Food was lovely, service good (very busy), need to book, beautiful view of the cathedral and surprisingly reasonable if you make... More

We had a Birthday lunch with friends. The place was busy and had real atmosphere. French is spoken and the menu was very much as you expect in France. I had the snails to start a real treat! Attentive and helpful staff in a modern place inside but in keeping with its proximity to the Cathedral outside. Certainly a gem... More

Visited here for a catch up lunch with friends last week. The staff were delightful and friendly as always. The food and wine was delicious. Order the olives as entree. The green ones are the best I've tasted. Lovely and bright space. Can't fault it. Would definitely recommend. Their Sunday lunch is great too.

Great food and wine Staff very friendly and good service We were seated upstairs by the window and it was so cold and lacked a warm atmosphere - would have preferred to be seated downstairs

The restaurant is situated just outside the cathedral grounds, so is great for grabbing some food after exploring the cathedral. Very Tasty food, had the baked Camembert which was very filling. The menu looked varied and reasonably priced.

We had a dinner for two which was absolutely superb. The staff were efficient, friendly and very attentive. The food was amazing. The only slight problem was that the portions were very large!! Beautifully cooked and presented food in a restaurant with a really great atmosphere. We'd been meaning to go for a while but will not hesitate in going... More
