I came here for Saturday lunch recently with my mother. The 5-course degustation sounded too good to pass up, although we were worried that at such a reasonable price we wouldn't get a lot of food. We needn't have worried - the servings were generous and we didn't leave hungry!

All 5 courses were delicious, and used innovative combinations of ingredients. Even my mother couldn't fault it, and she can be a very picky restaurant critic!

We will definitely be back to try it again.

We had lunch on a Tuesday, didn’t have breakfast as we decided on the Beef Wellington for 2 prior to our booking. It was truely delicious, served with beautiful peas which had bacon and plenty of butter added. Service was great, friendly and welcoming, even had a glass of red on the house. Can highly recommend this place, we will be back.

Compact restaurant with good atmosphere, great service and we had a great dinner and evening. The waiter was known to our hosts and was very attentive, recommending wines and courses

My wife organised lunch here for our 58th. It was a total success - pate en croute and beef tartare, followed by lemon sole (plenty of it) and bouillabaisse (good shellfish in an authentic sauce). We shouldn't have, but we did indulge ourselves with pudding. The chocolate icecream confection was rich and the crème brulee came flaming to the table. Again, food I would expect from a self-respecting French kitchen.
The service was impeccable. All courses were delivered at the right time. The wine was good and when I knocked over my celebratory glass of champagne (sparkling wine) it was replaced without fuss.

Maybe not the sort of place you'd go that often (prices reflect quality) but perfect for special days.

Reliably delicious food, interesting wine list and excellent service. Always great atmosphere. Saturday lunches are amazing value. Not expensive for the quality provided.
