It is patronised by plenty of locals and returning patrons, so book. Each table I could see had the moules et frites, wjich were great. Lots of... More

It's a long time since I visited a restaurant in which I really could not find fault. This tiny bistro is situated just slightly off one of the main shopping streets in this delightful, picturesque town - and has only six or seven tables available so, if you want to sample it's simple delights, you really do have to book,...

This restaurant was a total delight. We were served with attention and charm and nothing was too much trouble. I had the moules, which were excellent and my husband, the beef bourg equally as excellent. Loved the smallness of the place. What a wonderful experience and meal! Thank you.

A lovely little restaurant with really good food and a nice ambience. Service was attentive, the French soup was superb and the duck cottage pie was a new twist on an old favourite. Well worth a visit but it fills up quick!

Our last night in lovely Ludlow and we booked here and so glad we did. The meals were all superb and we thought very good value for money as well as being extremely tasty. Our only small complaint was where we were seated the floor slopes and it felt like you were leaning to the left the whole time and... More
