This was the second visit to the Bistro. On both occasions there were 9 of us and we chose to sit on the 'private' mezzanine which seats just 10 people as a maximum.

Nibbles of mixed olives and delightfully light and tasty garlic ciabatta, followed by a variety of delicious starters, (can recommend the scallops in thermadore and the smoked haddock risotto)

Mains varied.. Crispy belly pork, rib-eye steaks, filet of lamb, sea bass, pheasant ....all beautifully presented and red hot.

All of us declined dessert purely because we had simply eaten more than enough... Shame really the menu looked fabulous...We'll definitely be back.. maybe omitting the nibbles so we've room for desserts?

Had been here before, when it was in another guise. But decor changed very much for the better We had lamb cutlets - perfectly cooked, nicely pink, desserts excellent, and a good bottle of rose. Would happily go again.

Quiet when we went (a Thursday evening) but they were clearly geared up for a vey large party - it was after all, near Christmas and the office party time. This may well have been why we could only book for 6 pm.

First time in the restaurant - wednesday evening - however the place was reasonably busy.

We were in a semi large party - 5 guests - and despite the fact the restaurant was also catering to another two large tables we were well attended too.

The menu was varied and there was also a choice of several menus to order from. Large variety of dishes.

Not at all disappointed with the food - this was well presented and every single member of our party thought their chosen meal was wonderful.

Large selection of wines which is always handy!

I would recommend it any time.

We went at 18:30 on a Tuesday evening for my husband's birthday. We chose from the Menu de Jour and were delighted with our choices particularly the main course of lamb rolled in haggis. Absolutely delicious. Good service, reasonably priced wine and a thoroughly enjoyable evening
