My partner and I visited Bouchon after seeing it in a local Northumberland magazine. We love French food and Bouchon did not disappoint - staff we friendly, prices were reasonable (we ha the early bird menu), the atmosphere was great and the food was amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone; best French food I've ever had in England!

Visited Bouchon a few times over the years, but hadn't been for quite a while, since before it won 'The F word'. This was a busy lunchtime, but waited over 10 minutes for our drinks order to be taken, and still waited for menus to arrive, which I had to ask for in the end. Food was nice, but nothing... More
