Perhaps we were not wise to choose a Saturday before Xmas as service was very slow but the food more than made the wait worthwhile . Excellent value for money and we will be back

Response from MightyToad | Reviewed this property |
Closed Monday to my recollection, as are many French establishments. I don't think Gluten Free features on the menu , but it may be worth e.mailing, via their web site. The new management may have included this in an update.
Is this restaurant open on Mondays
