Really disappointing. We have been in here for a drink before. The bar is ok but there is an all pervading smell of food which is a bit off putting. This time however we wanted to eat so went into the restaurant area. We were found a table quite quickly but that was as good as it got. Asked for... More

Popped in for lunch without a booking. The restaurant was fully booked but the staff found us a great table by the windows at the rear. We had excellent food with great service and the price was very reasonable.

We visited for lunch and although the menu looked interesting the food, when it arrived, was a disappointment. One member of our party paid separately but the staff failed to bring our order out together. Coffee was delivered without sugar being bought or offered. The food was not as described on the menu with items missing. At almost £60 for... More

Our first visit and we were impressed. As you enter there is a large lively high quality bar for drinkers and diners. Beyond is a separate spacious restaurant which is well appointed and very attractive. The menu is interesting and imaginative. Standards of presentation of the delicious food are high. The staff are friendly and engaging. We will return and... More

At dinner on Saturday evening the atmosphere was fantastic, the service (Bridgette) friendly and attentive and the food quality excellent. I thoroughly recommend a visit.

Just a shame the evening was spoiled as we were seated at 6.30pm by being told that they needed our table again at 8.15. Clock watching when eating your dessert somewhat takes the enjoyment and sense of occasion away for a special 72nd birthday celebration. No time to chat over a coffee which wasn't offered or brandy/liqueur, also not offered... More

We recently visited on a day out to Berkhamsted, with quite a few Sunday roasts to pick from, we chose here after reading the great reviews. However, to say we were disappointed is a understatement. We came at about 4pm so checked before we were seated that they still had roasts available, and were told yes. We then sat down... More

Regular customers the food is always delicious but have a one gripe ...........we visited for Sunday lunch today, the food was again delicious but would like to know the justification for charging £15.00 for a slice of beef the size of a bacon slice and the same width!!! Pretty appalling really considering the usual standard !!

First thing I would want to say is that the food and service was very good and I would have gone again but when I asked the waitress if she receive all the tips she told us that if it was paid in cash there receive 100% but paid on the credit cards they all receive 40%. Shame on the... More

Hello there. I am glad to read that in the first instance the service & food were very good, it is always nice to be able to feed this back to my team as a whole. With regards to your question to my waitress, what I think here is that there may have been some confusion as to what you... More

Located in an old Georgian building this brasserie boasts a wonderful interior with several levels providing different dining environments overlooking an open, mezzanine kitchen. On arrival you will be greeted by our friendly, knowledgeable team and the lively ambience is complemented by a menu inspired by the simple, hearty dishes of M. Blanc's childhood.

Alongside an appetising a la carte menu and carefully selected wine list we offer an excellent value set menu and on Sundays we serve a classic roast with all the trimmings. Younger diners can choose from a special children's menu or order a half sized portion of many of the a la carte dishes on offer.For summer dining our secluded terrace is the ideal escape.
