If only been a few times before for a coffee and pastry, and not since they've expanded. Really enjoyed my first evening meal. Busy, good atmosphere on a Friday night.

Friendly and helpful staff and tasty food, with yes, good-size portions!

Tasty gin too.

Chef clearly knew his stuff as well as wine experts.
Good menu presenting options for all tastes and requirements.
Typical french dishes such as Duck/ cassoulet and french patisserie. But also twists on classic British fish and chips- posh style.
French cafe decor.
Gets very busy!
Amazing French wine selection.
Shop part of bistro. Great cheeses!

Had lunch here with a lovely lady friend - we didn't book but were made very welcome. Food was quite good although the excellent Cassoulet was over salted for my taste. Glass of Fleurie went down a treat. Coffee here is good too. £25 a head spent and good value at that.
