First visit and it wont be my last. Visited Saturday evening with two friends - both the food and service was excellent. The garlic mushrooms on toast are to die for! The service was attentive but not intrusive - we were last to leave but at no stage felt rushed. Highly recommended and will definitely visit again ..... soon.

Le chateau is very friendly and welcoming but the best was the food! Having eaten. In various eateries in the area this was by far the best, a real gem. The lemon sole was the best my daughter had ever tasted, calves liver was cooked to perfection and the duck was the absolute best and cooked exactly to my liking,... More

I had a lovely meal here with my partner the other night. The actual restaurant is fairly small and there were quite a few tables full when we went in, but we had the right amount of privacy with nobody too near our table and it didn't feel crowded at all. The waiter was attentive and friendly, and put us... More

I went with my partner and 8 year old daughter - we only visited because the Italian restaurant over the road was full but was really pleased it was! The service was excellent, very welcoming; with lovely decor and really delicious "grown up" food (seabass). They even offered to do sausage and chips for my daughter. A tad expensive for... More

Booked a table at Le Chateau for Valentines but I had to cancel last minute due to be cut of due to the floods. Luckily I rebooked for the following day and I'm so glad I did ... It's a lovely intimate place to take your loved one on an evening. The low key lighting, ambience and vibe is really... More

An absolutely delicious meal... Superb customer service... Friendly atmosphere... Menu to die for... I can go on but I won't... Go and see for yourself... We ate in there on Saturday 15 feb... Smoked salmon starter followed by sea bass / fillet steak, no room for pudding but squeezed in coffee and brandy! Mmmmmm wish I lived nearer...

Everywhere else was full and this was a very pleasant surprise. Double baked soufflé was lovely, as was the pate. Mains were halibut, lovely, and chicken and chorizo which was ok. As I said, a very pleasant surprise and will revisit
