Broke up a day’s shopping with a belated valentines lunch. We had the monkfish and Cajun chicken And shared the passion fruit Eton mess. Service and food were excellent, we had a lovely table in the window. Perfect Saturday. Recommend!

As usual delicious bistro food and great setting and ambience. Loved parsnip soup, hake en cassoulet, Cajun chicken.
