“A wonderful evening!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Have just returned home after another fantastic evening at QSF. We have visited many times as a couple but tonight we took our 13yr old son to celebrate his birthday. The food was absolutely outstanding as always and the chef even made garlic mushrooms as a starter, despite it not being on the menu and the restaurant being full! The waitresses did their utmost to ensure everything was to our satisfaction and could not have been more warm and pleasant. Thank you to all of them for a very special evening and we look forward to returning in the near future.

“Enjoyed it 1st and 2nd time but after the 3rd never again”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We have been to quite simply french a twice before and we never had a problem. The food was also lovely and though it was pricey it was enjoyable. However we last visted for my partners birthday there was 14 of us. I had spenta large aamount of time trying to make this a special as I could. When we arrived we were rushed to our seats and forced to order as promptly as possible. The food was ok I wouldn't say it was like the other 2 visits prior. Once the plates have been cleared I was then approached by the head of waiting and told you will have the birthday cake now rather then being asked it was then thrusted under my partners face without is even having the opportunity to sing happy birthday . I was then provided with the bill. As we had visited on a Monday night it was a set menu of 20 quid each with any additional extras such as other drinks desserts and coffees. We were then told there was a service charge which was factored in to everyones overall price. The money was counted by us 5 times to make sure it was correct and we even had extra we had a friend who was paying there share on a card. The waitress counted it and said we were £10 short I explained this could not be but she insisted and charged it to friends bank card. When working out the bill the next day I found that this was incorrect everyone had paid over not under. Due to this being forced to pay a service charge so extremely poor service and the fact that we were rushed in and out we will not be going back to quite simple french again. I would rather travel further then eat at this establishment again

“Great food, great value”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Went for an early evening meal and was delighted to find that all prices on the main menu had been halved for the earlier sitting, though portions were not quite as large. When we received our food we were both delighted and as we both like French food it was really to our taste. Service was also excellent and the overall ambience was great. Certainly going again
