We have visited this restaurant a number of times over the years and have never been disappointed. We would happily recommend it to our friends. The fixed price menu option during the week is ideal if you wish to try this place for the first time.

Lunched here again on Friday and it was a most enjoyable meal. We entertained a friend who is a fantastic cook and she was very impressed by the menu, her choices and the extras , such as the bread basket, amuse Bouche and petits fours. It really is the best value in the area .

For £14.95 I and my friends, as usual, had a fabulous lunch at the Chardonnay. Nothing is too much trouble for Andy, the manager. As soon as you enter the establishment you feel at home and welcomed. Coats are taken on arrival and sitting at the bar area with drinks and nibbles, while you peruse the menu in a very... More

For the 2nd year running, our local wine appreciation group booked this restaurant for our Xmas 'do'. There were 12 of us. We were welcomed in a most friendly manner and served drinks in the bar before being shown to our table. Despite the restaurant being busy, the food was on time and it was very good with larger than... More

Last night be had a fantastic meal at this restaurant. We ate from the set menu and thought we had excellent value for money. The bread basket was fantastic and you must have the coffee as the added extra is well worth it!

Family booked dinner here this week for a random December get together. Used to come here years ago, as I lived within walking distance...and a couple of times since for Xmas dinner. Why I had not thought of coming here recently is beyond me, as it's consistently good, service, food, parking, location. Chardonnay...we will be back soon and will recommend.... More

I went for a multiple birthday meal on Friday 21st Nov and had a lovely round table in the conservatory area (which is probably the best place to be with room to move & a decent view). From the moment of arrival to when you are lead to your table, to when you sample the (complementary) delicious homemade basket of... More

I go to the Chardonnay on special occasions. Not because its expensive because the set menu is only £14.95 but for the whole ambience. You are welcomed and your coats are taken, you are seated given the menu and left alone for a few minutes to settle in. You are then brought nibbles and drinks orders are taken. After drinks...
