Tasty Fun

Mum & I had Boiled Eggs With Marmite soldiers. Fantastic presentation with real toy soldiers! Most enjoyable and lovely welcome/service. We will be back. Church Street, Hereford is a lovely side street full of unique little shops especially La Madeleine

A short trip to do some shopping was the inducement. Fitting in a trip into Hereford seemed sensible, however, I should have been wiser. Whilst avoiding getting roped in to buy a blouse that I neither need nor would wear (but look, it fits ME perfectly!) I chance upon Church Street. Second mistake of the day, I answered the 'phone...

Visited on Saturday, a glorious spring day. The secret garden is a delight, as are the staff. Quiche Lorraine and interesting salad. Cool glass of Sauvignon.Delicious. I thoroughly recommend.

Especially not good for vegetarians, we ended up sharing asparagus and a cheese plate. Both were meager and overpriced. The waitress was repeatedly quite forgetful - we had to ask for the bill three times and a knife was dropped on me. We were not impressed at all with this place, though the garden was very nice.

In need of a drink and sit down, the outside board detailing a sunny garden at the rear was the decider for La Madeleine. Good coffee, the tea made rather unattractive by the cracked china cup and the tea bag string hanging outside the spout - yuk! A very pleasant old fashioned courtyard garden, but I don't think the table... More

Only came in for a hot chocolate with a friend and it was delicious. I then returned the week after with my family for a meal, which was also spectacular! Defiantly recommend! The service excellent and the garden is lovely!

We received excellent service and both enjoyed our food, consisting of sea bass and fillet steak. The fish and chicken liver pate's were also delicious. Ample portions and a good ambience. Well worth a visit in the evening.

I have wanted to visit here for a long time especially after I heard they had begun serving Friday night supper. We were lucky enough to get a table on a Friday without any booking and I am so pleased we did. The restaurant is softly lit and has a great atmosphere. The staff are really friendly and helpful.
