This restaurant had been recommended by friends and, after reading the excellent reviews it had received, we decided to give it a go. We were NOT disappointed. On entering we were greeted warmly and taken immediately to our table, where we sat on lovely comfortable chairs (not always available in some restaurants). The menu was varied with a wide range...

This restaurant has restored my faith that there are some great restaurants in the north east! Seeing the menu filled me with hope, a simple and well composed selection of classic French dishes. We had starters and mains. I chose French onion soup followed by lamb cutlets. The lamb dish was perfectly looked, well balanced and delicious. This chef knows... More

Probably our sixth visit to this wonderful bistro and as on all the previous visits it was as splendid as ever. We have dined here at lunchtime and also in the evening and the service, menu and sheer value for money is unsurpassed. Despite me making a mistake the the time of the reservation and arriving 30 minutes late, and... More

Just happened to be in the neighborhood checking out castles and antiques etc. and realized we were starving. A quick check of Trip Advisor tells me BOUCHON is right next to me. We get lucky and was given a EARLY reservation at noon.. and it's HEAVEN. Perfect food, service and attitudes. 5 stars - 2 snaps up. If I lived... More

Our 1st visit to this restaurant, won't be the last. Thoroughly enjoyed our 'early doors' meal. The four of us had different choices, all very good. Compliments to the chef and a very efficient team. Do the people of Hexham realise what excellent choice of restaurants of such good quality they have. Looking forward to returning next year.

The Bouchon Bistrot is a lovely little French restaurant, not stuffy or pretentious, the food is excellent and cooked to perfection, we love to eat the authentic classic dishes that we enjoy in France. It is a little French oasis in the middle of Hexham. If you are a Francophile you will not be disappointed!
