“Cheese! Cheese! Cheese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

As the title states, I come here mainly for the cheese - although the champagne is very good.

Their cheese platters are fabulous and their Roquefort is the best I've ever had. I am a cheese connoisseur - the stronger the better. The baked Camembert with fig and thyme is sublime and I often overindulge when I am here. Their chocolate desert and raspberry tiramisu are also worth trying!

This was my second time visiting and it did not disappoint.

“Great cheese platter.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

My husband an I decided to pop in for a glass of champagne, we had just come out of the theatre and fancied a light snack.. The charcuterie's looked wonderful, but we ordered a cheese platter which was very well presented and delicious. We will go back to sample more foods from the menu, possibly pre theatre.
This is a small, quite rustic venue which is a lovely find in the centre of town.. It is relaxing and has a really nice vibe.
Lovey place to finish off our night.

“Great for sharing platters of cheese and meat with friends!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Went with a group of girls for an evening of chatting over a glass of champagne. We had booked last minute and expectations weren't that high so we were really pleasantly surprised. The staff was courteous, lovely and helped us put together the perfect food order. We tried a little of everything and among the favourites were the quiches (so yummy!), the warm camembert with pesto filling and the cheese platter. The champagne was great but it would have been nice with just one prosecco option for those who prefer the sweeter stuff.

“Great find for a couple.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

I was looking for something a little different for my wife and I to spend some quality time together. This may not be that place for some but we loved it. It is small and it is not posh - but that's what we loved about it. Despite other reviews, the staff were attentive, but not too much to be annoying, the ambiance was nice and cosy, and there was a really good selection of champagnes. The staff knew their wines and were able to recommend some great champagnes for each course we had. The food selection is not vast, but this is not a typical restaurant, so don't complain if you come looking for an extensive menu.
Positive: food, champagne selection (and taste), staff knowledge and service, ambiance
Negative: none really...but you need to know what it is before going otherwise you may get the wrong idea.
Totally recommend
