We used to go to Malcolm John's Cassoulet...it was conveniently placed near to where my Mum lives.
The new BV is not much further... and the French style of the menu is both familiar and appealing.
The new BV is a terrific re-iteration of Malcolm's two previous Croydon restaurants; Cassoulet and Fish and Grill. It is sophisticated and relaxed and the food is great.
You can sense that this is an idea that can be rolled out...
Based on our experience, you would want one of Malcolm John's restaurants just around the corner! This is very good - like a bit of Paris at the bottom of the road.
