If you are looking for a sophisticated night out in Rugby and good food this is the place to be. It is advisable to book in advance as it is very popular. The atmosphere is great and I love the Cocktail bar upstairs.

We visited today for my sisters 30th birthday. It's a beautifully decorated restaurant, very classic with modern twists which compliment each other. The menu is very classic, and the food is sublime. I had a blue cheese and shallot tart as a starter with steak bites. everything on the plate worked perfectly together. I had a duck breast in an... More

I want to like this place. It has a good atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. Just sometimes it's not "very" French.

We went for the first time on a very early Saturday evening as a couple for a change. Had steaks which were pleasant although I have had better fillet steaks for less than the £35 price tag. Warning though the peppercorn steak was very strong and overpowering. Nice bottle of wine and the cheese board and petit fours board was... More

Food and service has always been fantastic here, it is fairly pricy but I've found it to be worth it. We went on a Thursday at the end of march, without realising there was a steak offer on. Two steaks and a bottle of wine for £40. Cooked brilliantly and thoroughly enjoyed!

I took three important work colleagues here for a meal. I cannot fault the atmospere and the service, however one of my colleagues had a seafood tagliatelli which was a great dissapointment, all pasta and little seafood and the mussells were a real letdown which were bascally empty shells. The other starters and steak main courses were excellent although a... More

Having been here on a few occasions, it never fails to impress. Lovely three courses, would advise the duck main course to anyone. Started off with cocktails, and finished the night in the same manner. Will definitely be going again soon! Best place to eat in rugby 👌🏻
