Thoroughly enjoyable!

We had a lovely dinner at the French Horn. The meal, the ambiance and the service were fabulous and even though they were fully booked, they were kind enough to find a place for us in their full-menu bar area. We were thoroughly impressed.

Another lovely meal for us at the French Horn. This time taking my mum in law. Lovely menu. Sirloin roast was fab, all so freshly cooked and tasty. Had the chocolate and orange fondant for desert. Lush!! Can't fault it for choice ambience value or service either.

I was taken to the French Horn by my daughter who has recently got a job in the area. We felt immediately at home as we came in through the door ordered drinks and sat down taking in the well chosen and eclectic furnishing. The menu is well thought out with great choices. I had deviled kidneys on toast to... More

This is the second time we've been here recently and it really is very very good.  The French Horn has a reassuringly small menu, meaning that all of the food can be freshly prepared. That said, there is plenty to choose from and it's all delicious!  Our party had a selection of the starters and they were all gorgeous, especially... More

We went on a Sunday having pre booked a table for four. I was impressed at the portion size, quality of food and the price. We had a three course meal with coffee but no alcohol and it came to around £35 per head. The atmosphere was lovely and I really look forward to visiting again. For such an upmarket... More

I visited this restaurant for lunch at 1.15 on 27 February with my partner and friend to celebrate my birthday after finding it on Open Table under the best top 10, so my expectations were high. We were greeted warmly on arrival and were pleased with the recommendation for the warm crab and parmesan dip with toast. Delicious! For our... More

Who are these people who say this is best place to eat around. It's average at best and portions and service are very poor indeed !!!! Don't waste your time or money. Go to the Black Horse or something.
