Lunch time special, excellent value for money. We had the French onion soup for starters & would definitely recommend this if you are visiting. Staff were attentive & friendly

Went last month with friends after reading TA reviews and we all turned up on the Saturday night looking forward to our tasty meals to be told we'd booked the wrong Saturday it wasn't till the following week :-( Missed a treat I feel, the food looked fabulous

Staff were very pleasant and attentive. The food was just amazing. Definitely would recommend the French onion soup. The wine was beautiful. Would recommend it to someone who was willing to spend for a nice romantic meal, or with a bigger group wanting a special night out.

The standard menu is enhanced by a special board - I just had to have the turbot with langoustines. The French onion soup is excellent and I had the cheese board for afters with a glass of port - they even brought me the port bottles so I could choose. There were four of us in our party and everyone... More

New menu that is not as authentic and what are these new world wines? Initial worries unfounded as the food was as brilliant as ever and yes we stuck with a French sav'. We like our French experience
