Description: Nestled in the middle of a row of beautiful Georgian townhouses on Castle Street, our French brasserie spreads through several cosy rooms, with a lovely bar for pre-dinner drinks. The restaurant has tables small and large plus fabulous banquette seating so it can be whatever you want it to be: cosy, romantic, lively or fun - depending on your occasion and your companions! Our beautiful, secret garden is a popular retreat where guests can dine al fresco in the summer months and upstairs is a stylish private room that seats up to 30 for board meetings, special events, or celebration dinners.

“Great Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

A burger s a good test of a restaurant.
A good burger is a sublime experience.
A bad burger is as awful as life can be.

It has different parts and each part has to be right.

Here

The bun -well toasted no sesame seeds thank heavens and a lightly glazed top 9/10
The beef - first class good quality and plenty of it 10/10
The cooking - good pink in the middle charred on the outside 10/10
The bits- Cheese Ok (more about this later) lettuce little gem should be Cos -or perish the thought - iceberg . deduct one point.
Tomatoes fresh and well sliced similarly gherkins.
Mayo seemed good and home made. 9/10

I did specify no cheese but it nevertheless arrived with cheese. They offered to change it-but it all looked so good I wouldn't part with it.

Chips skinny- bit Mcdonaldish - not great -the weakest part of the dish 6/10

Service -apart from getting the cheese wrong- service was prompt courteous and welcoming.

A good Burger. With a big bottle of mineral water and a tip £18. Costly but well worth it.

“An absolute pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Having read some of the reviews I was a little apprehensive. However, both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our early evening dinner. The service, the food and the ambience of the restaurant was fantastic and has left me wanting more!
The experience left me so happy that I thought I would actually write a review ( for the 1st time), as I am the first to complain or moan for any reason.

It's my birthday in a couple of weeks and I eagerly await our return.

“A 'magnifique' French experience without the hassle of travel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This restaurant offers all the delights of a traditional French Brasserie, as would be found in Paris and other cities.
The décor and the welcome, will start the visit impressively and then the food is outstanding, with a range of wines at fair prices. The off peak menu is tremendous value and the a la carte dishes were delightful.
All in all an outstanding restaurant experience. Very strongly recommended for any event - especially those 'special' occasions.
It must be superb to have such a facility in the locality - a full French restaurant pleasure and no airport security or passport aggravation. We will certainly return whenever visiting Farnham again.

“Great value set menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Had a very enjoyable lunch here, dining from the three-course prix-fixe menu. The service was warm and friendly, the restaurant environment relaxed and unhurried, and for a Saturday afternoon it was lovely to go somewhere which wasn't full of children. Can't comment on the main menu, but the set price lunch was good value, good quality and I would definitely return again.

“Nice Atmosphere - Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Went for lunch menu - out of the 4 dishes one was unavailable - and virtually no meat on rest.
Service and surroundings excellent - but food was distinctly average. Just ok and the saving of the lunch menu helped, not sure i'd go again at full evening prices
