You'll miss out on the full effect of this restaurant. Besides which there's nothing to see outside. Excellent food served in eclectic surroundings by lovely attentive but not intrusive staff. We went for a shared medieval approach to the meat and it was gorgeous and technically could have fed 3. Highly recommended

We had the Comte cheese fondue which was rich and delicious. Get one fondue bowl and extra charcuterie for four. Fun place to take the family - be careful though the portions are very generous Enthusiastic staff, great atmosphere and ambience and eclectic decoration.

We opted for the Fondue Savoy and the portion was very generous. It came with a platter of cold meats, gherkins, potatoes and tomatoes and a large basket of lovely dark, crusty bread. The fondue itself had a mix of French cheeses and had a had a great tangy taste. We opted for a very good Gewurtztraminer from an extensive... More

We had a Fondue Savoyard for two ( would be enough food for four!). Exceptionally good value, the cheeses in the fondue have great flavour and the cured meats and sausage that accompany it are of high quality. An eclectic style of decoration in the restaurant hmakes for an interesting visual experience, too. Just make sure you have a big... More

A friend suggested this place and I couldn't be happier. Every type of fondue you could want, cheese is included in everything. Last time I was here I got the Roquefort burger and it was fantastic! The place is very quirky and it has a very homely vibe. My only criticism was that we were placed in the very back... More

one of my favourite things in life is cheese. what's better? cheese and wine. in this little miracle restaurant you can meet your paradise of cheese and wine. i got lost in the dishes of camembert, chevre, munster and all the other smelly cheeses <3 my heart melts when i think about it like a spoonful of brie on top...

Visited this restaurant by accident, went in for a quick pint whilst waiting for the bus, saw the food on other tables and decided to stay. My 2 friends and I shared the rump steak 'spike ball' with frites and salad. The steak pieces were 'spiked' onto a hot medieval ball cooking the meat whilst at your table (see pictures)... More

One of the best paces in town to taste a wide variety of cheese! However, I'd suggest this place only in winter:)
