Excellent food...really well presented and very reasonable. We have become regular customers at the bistro and have never had any complaints in fact just the opposite ...recommend that you book as can get quite busy.

Left it until the last minute again and ended up with the 6:30 spot, be warned. It's only a small restaurant so the tables are close together but not in a way you'd notice, it's very well laid out. There was a choice of two...More

I’ve been visiting in the UK from Australia for 3 weeks and this meal is the best I’ve had since being here. The main course belly pork was absolutely awesome. Give it a go. Well done.

Limited menu, decor and ambiance of a average cafe, but the food was very good. Staff and service a little chaotic - missing side plates and cutlery, drinks took a while to arrive or didn’t at all until reminded.

This was a first visit and was to celebrate a birthday. The first impression is welcoming with effective but simple decor. The service was excellent but not fussy. I had the goats cheese starter followed by the halibut. Both were excellent. The courses are not...More

Hi - I believe they do. It would be best to e-mail them and ask. Also you can book with Open Table - they might do vouchers.
