I cannot stress sufficiently that the food was really excellent and appropriately priced. For many people that will be the only criteria required; picky Me is equally interested in the surroundings. Other than a couple of Lautrec prints on the wall and intermittent strains of accordion 'musac', the milieu reflected little or nothing of France. The 'subtle' lighting created a... More

We finished off a nice day out by aimlessly arriving in Hexham and started to seek out somewhere to eat. We found Bouchon Bistrot, which appeared welcoming and interesting from the outside. It is a testament to this restaurant that it was busy even on a Wednesday evening, and the Maitre D'Hotel appeared to think long and hard about whether... More

Yet again, an excellent meal at Bouchon. Having just returned from a holiday in France, Bouchon did not disappoint.

I had the rustic pork salad to start then the belly pork to follow, very tasty indeed, and then finished off with... More

A good selection of well-cooked and presented food, in a relaxed but efficient atmosphere. Although we ate this time in the main restaurant, there is also a separate room for private dinners.
