We found the Bijou by accident and had lunch there. Excellent food served in a very pleasant atmosphere. I would highly recommend this place for lunchtimes. Reasonably priced menu with a good choice.

Food and service are so good here. Really enjoy the additional touches of canapés, breads and sorbet.

Had a meal out tonight with friends. The restaurant is reasonably priced, everything was lovely and staff were great. The steak was the best I have tasted for a while. I liked the herb topping which had a blue cheese crust. Will go back again.x

We had the three course mid week meal for £22.00 which is very good value for the quality of food and service. The starters were perfect especially my risotto with beef shin which was so tender. The main course of lamb was also great. For dessert my wife had the brownie and I had the lemon tart - both were... More

Went here for my birthday with my boyfriend who had booked a surprise place. Was quiet as was in January however was still a nice atmosphere. Good choice of wine and cocktails. Food was absolutely beautiful, with nice extra touches. Would definitely recommend and return.

My husband and i went for our anniversary and were really impressed. The food was excellent, well presented and tasty. I had the mackerel to start and it was to die for, my husband had soup and really enjoyed it. The main courses were excellent as were the desserts. A really good atmosphere and courteous staff enhanced the experience. We... More
