Had lunch there this week. Their 2 course lunch was great value and above all it was 'different' - not your run of the mill menu. We were expecting the usual Plaice and chips or Steak and Ale Pie etc but were pleasantly surprised by the menu.Staff were pleasant and very efficient. We enjoyed our meal and can thoroughly recommend... More

We are becoming regulars at the Brasserie. The venue, choice and quality have never failed to impress. Dined there again tonight and thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back again. Love the 1709 Brasserie Platter for one as a starter.

Was shocked by the state of the carpet and cleanliness of the cutlery. However the food was quite pleasant. It could be so much nicer and needs a major update. It was very cheap for the food quality.

Typical Bistro type place with cozy corners and good service. We went for an evening meal on a Sat night. We started with a prawn cocktail salad which was fresh and crispy. We followed with the fishcakes and a nice glass of white wine. After we checked out the pub across the road which had live entertainment,

Went on recommendation from a friend, what a gem of a find! I don't know how they do it, but 3 courses and a carafe of wine for 2 (enough for 1 1/2 glasses each) ... All for £25, only on a Monday though. Lovely little bistro restaurant, with a lot of character. We booked, good job, as it was... More

Visited with my wife yesterday evening for dinner - we had a shared starter course, main meal, dessert, cold drinks and tea/coffee. We both commented several times to each other, that the quality of the food, the quality of the presentation of the food and service from the staff really was excellent all round. The cost of our meal was... More

My wife, son and I stumbled across this little restaurant by accident when we were trying to locate another restaurant. As it had been a long day, we could be bothered looking any further, and from the outside, 1709 looked very inviting. One of the best decisions we'd made all day. Fantastic food at a reasonable price.

Three of us had the same vegetarian main meal off the menu and found it to be disappointing but the one meat eater enjoyed his meal. The starters were satisfactory but the desserts were also disappointing. The service was good and the staff pleasant. The interior was a bit drab and could do with an upgrade. Overall, we found 1709... More
