“Amazing French food, cracking wine, brilliant staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

As a Minchinhampton resident I've only eaten here once, but when I did it was absolutely wonderful.

I recall the Salt Marsh Lamb was to die for, and the cheese board was out of this world with all cheeses being introduced by the restaurant manager.

An absolute treat.
