Super french restaurant serving well prepared traditional bistro dishes as well as more modern offerings. Always reliable food providing quality not quantity.

We wouldn't normally make a 70 mile round trip for lunch, but this restaurant is so good, it is certainly worth the journey. Top quality food at excellent prices, lovely atmosphere and attentive service. Located next to a pretty park for a pre- or post-lunch stroll. Ideal.

A favourite restaurant of ours for lunch. Always consistently good and reasonably priced, particularly for three courses. Would recommend it to anyone.

This restaurant came with the recommendation of the SaturdayTimes restaurant review, and it turned out to be well-deserved and totally well-founded. The ambience is entirely French, once inside the door, one could be for all the world in the Marais district of Paris, or the Ile de la Cité. The service is excellent, polite, informed and attentive, a perfect prelude... More

We arranged a dinner for a group of friends and couldn't have been more satisfied, from the planning, pre-dinner arrangements and communication, food, wine and outstanding service. The evening was tailormade, yet still extremely good value for such delicious, well cooked french food. All our requests were met and we shall be planning another event with another group soon. I...

This was good from start to finish; a welcoming staff, prompt but discreet service and everything you would expect from a restaurant styled as a french bistro Being a Saturday night it was full (a good sign) but this did not faze the staff or the kitchen which delivered very good dishes throughout: the onion soup evoked memories of Parisian...

Our second lunchtime visit to this gem of a restaurant. Surprised to find such superb food at lunchtime (open 12 noon) and incredible value if you have the table d'hote menu at less than £16 for three courses. My main reason for the review is the pleasant and helpful service each time we have arrived with my wheelchair bound mother-in-law.... More

If authentic French in England is what you're after - this is it - (except that, in France, we wouldn't have had to wait before the bread basket was placed in front of us. and we had to ask for the wine list. 1/2 a point off there, I'm afraid!) But - we've eaten here several times and each occasion... More
