A little gem is all I can say ..... Recently moved back to the area and finally after several months of looking we have found our spot !!

5 course lunch £20 and the vibe is laid back and very pleasant , food is good and plenty of bang for your buck .

The interior is well thought through and the staff are professional and attentive .

The brandy was served warm in the French tradition ( we did ask ) perfection !!!

Well done team " Branches " for a delightful lunch .

I took my mum, dad and girlfriend here for my Mums 70th birthday and could not have been happier with the food and service which made it a very special occasion for her. We all had the tasting menu, which we thought might be your classic nouveau cuisine exercise. In reality this is a full three courses plus bread and a chef's surprise. All of the food was beautifully presented, expertly cooked and tasted excellent. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. A genuinely enjoyable evening. Very highly recommended.

Although there is an extensive a la carte menu, we opted for the Taste of Branches 5-course menu for £19.95 and were absolutely delighted with every single one of them. My husband ordered the fish and chips for his main course and expected a small portion of fish - it was huge! I chose the chicken breast which was very tasty and the accompanying vegetables were cooked to perfection. Both our desserts were a work of art! The decor in this restaurant is beautiful and the staff are friendly and attentive. It was our first visit but certainly won't be our last.
