Popped in here due to the fact they were still serving breakfast at 13.30 and i was on my own and wanted somewhere where i wasn't going to feel too self conscious.

We visited in December last year as a Christmas girls get together. The meal was lovely however the service was very slow with long breaks between courses.

I was so pleased to find that this restaurant had changed hands as previously the service was awful and service is very important to me. I can forgive a lot if the service is good ! I have lunched here several times and never been disappointed. When I have taken my small grandchildren they have been looked after too. The... More

Visited today for a champagne breakfast. The food was excellent and the staff amazing. Having eaten there a number of times this was a time to say goodbye. The restaurant closes on Saturday. I understand that someone else will be opening there as Michael is moving on. The new owners will have a hard act to follow. So goodbye Dan... More

This brasserie is hidden at the back,upstairs of Bennett`s department store, but when you find it you will go back again and again. Mid size menu with all food cooked to order in full view of diners.I think it is only open during shop hours so `you couldnt go in the evening. the restaurant is fully licenced and the food... More

Champagne breakfast was outstanding - celebrated the start of our 20th wedding anniversary here in style. The food was excellent - fresh fruit salad, full English breakfast and the banana pancakes to finish. Highly recommended.

The champagne Breakfast for my hubby's birthday was very nice, and the service was very professional. What let's this restaurant down for me is the seating, I feel the restaurant could be a little more comfortable. I know it's meant to have a bistro feel but the seating wasn't very good and the table was tiny. So we just wanted... More

We had been recommended this place so thought that we would give it a go!! Albeit strange walking through a department store we very very pleased with both the service and quality of food. There was no rush involved in getting us to our seats or ordering immediately which we both liked. Although the menu isn't huge I'd be surprised... More
