Liked the look of La Fourchette and were looking for somewhere for a coffee and hot chocolate at lunchtime. Not the friendliest of welcomes - not particularly busy but no greeting or encouraging smile and with no menu on the table nor table service apparently on offer it was a bit of guess work about what was available. Maybe a menu on the table might have encouraged us to eat as well! Ordered hot chocolate to be told, in what i thought was a rather patronising way, that they did not serve powdered hot chocolate but a continental style liquid chocolate served with cream - maybe we didn't look sophisticated enough, maybe because we had our two teenagers and a 10 yr old with us or maybe I was being over sensitive.
However, when the drinks arrived they were beautifully presented in the continental style on a small wooden board with iced water. It was absolutely gorgeous and we all loved it.
This could be a fantastic place as it is a pleasant restaurant with the food we saw looking very good. The staff were not rude nor unpleasant nor unfriendly but just not very welcoming or personable which is a shame because this really is what would make the difference.
One final comment is that the temperature was also a bit cool and we had to keep coats on. It was a cold day but there didn't seem to be any heating.
Oh dear, I am really sorry I can't be more positive but hopefully this will be seen as constructive feedback and if we visit again will be able to give a rating of 4 or 5.
