Unexpectedly good simple hot Sunday lunch served in a very traditional way with friendly staff in very simple surroundings but you can see care is taken.

Not really a bistro, more of a greasy spoon in a bistro setting. No complaints though. Food was fine and tasty and not overpriced. Would go again

Enquired if there was a table for three. Told "full". End of 'conversation'. As there was lots of unused tables not sure what was full...but we went to the Angel and loved it. Won't try again.
