The food was, as usual, stunning, very well presented and bursting with flavours. The Crispy duck confit is to die for. The staff were extremely polite, friendly and helpful. The price was ok and even better if you go for an early bird special. Well worth a visit.

Visited Friday evening with a couple of girl friends and took advantage of the early bird menu. 3 courses later we were more than satisfied with the quality of the dishes, the service and the overall ambience of this lovely restaurant. The French owner Gregory buzzes around as with welcoming words for diners and makes sure the staff are on the ball. Great experience and will certainly be back!

Whilst endeavouring to re-study school day French - we thought it would be nice to seek out a French Restaurant to encourage our studies. We therefore went for a lunch at the Bouchon. The quality of the genuinely French dishes was excellent, and the service was personal and very attentive. The ambiance was just what we were looking for, and listening to the owner's French accent completed the experience. Next time, we might even order in French! Well worth a visit even if you have to travel to the restaurant like we did.

I visited Hexham last month with some colleagues. We stumbled across this place while out looking for somewhere to eat. What a find! A genuine French menu, food was lovely and the atmosphere was exactly what you'd hope for. I'd recommend to everyone.
When I told my friend who lives in Durham I'd been to Hexham, she told me about a good French restaurant there! I told her I'd already been! Highly recommended!
