The early seating on Saturday nights is a two-course for £15 deal. We had the rabbit rillettes starter followed by sea bass or steak. We supplemented with one of their fruit tarts and a glass of wine. All beautifully cooked and seasoned just right. All in £70 for 3 people. Will be back.

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!
