Located in an old Georgian building this brasserie boasts a wonderful interior with several levels providing different dining environments overlooking an open, mezzanine kitchen. On arrival you will be greeted by our friendly, knowledgeable team and the lively ambience is complemented by a menu inspired by the simple, hearty dishes of M. Blanc's childhood. Alongside an appetising a la carte menu and carefully selected wine list we offer an excellent value set menu and on Sundays we serve a classic roast with all the trimmings. Younger diners can choose from a special children's menu or order a half sized portion of many of the a la carte dishes on offer.For summer dining our secluded terrace is the ideal escape.

Past its best by date

I've been here a number of times and the service and quality of the food have very slowly fallen over the years. Whilst still acceptable mostly, this makes it poorer value for money. On this occasion, we visited on a very quiet Sunday lunchtime. There was a good choice of options, from the main... read more

Went there as a birthday treat. This is a very smart restaurant but still very friendly. Food and wine was excellent a great night out for a special occasion, with excellent service.

We visited this restaurant when it first opened and it was not a great experience. We decided to give it another try on a friday night. We opted to sit in the bar area in a cosy booth. Our waiter was so attentive and very pleasant. The service was excellent all evening. The food was even better. The wine waiter... More

We called in on a hot summer afternoon and had a lovely lunch. Sit outside or just by the courtyard - either way it's a delightful setting.

Me and my bf have been here twice for lunch. We both had the crêpes. Food was very nice. Spacious restaurant and posh feel to it. Not bad value for money. Would return if in the area!

I had booked a table for Sunday lunch for ten people to celebrate my brother's birthday and really wish we had read the reviews first. Although the restaurant has great decor, the staff pleasant, the whole experience left us numb! We waited so long for our food, the muscadet wine wasn't chilled and the portions very meagre. We even sent... More
