We hired the lovely function room, which is separate from the Bistro with round tables seating 6 or 7 people, so it was perfect for our Christmas meal. An extremely good menu with choice of six starters, ten main courses and five deserts plus minced pie and coffee for £24.95 a head. The food was very good quality, good portions... More

Our walking group of 40 booked a private room at Le Chanteclerc for our Xmas Meal and the evening was a great success. The food was delicious. 6 round tables beautifully set and a lovely Christmas tree all to ourselves! The 3 course set menu had an excellent range of choices followed by home made mincemeat parcels and coffee.

This was without a doubt the best dining out experience we have had for a long time. Lovely surroundings, excellent food and friendly staff. May be a little more expensive than some but well worth it. All cooked to perfection served on hot plates. Will defiantly go there again.

My wife and I recently dined at the Bistro after a long absence and were very impressed. The food is quite traditional, of good quality and reasonably priced. Having just returned from a holiday abroad we found the abundant supply of vegetables very welcome. The wine list was also good and inexpensive. We shall return.

This bistro has always been a clear favourite eaterie with me, my family and friends.. we dine there regularly! Last night we went and it was reasonably busy, with fewer staff on duty. There were four of us and we had three courses. The first and third courses were lovely. Three of the main couses were great, however, l noticed... More

I've eaten here for many years with the family, now with new owners after several decades with the old ones i decided to allow a few months for everything to settle down. That said I've eaten here many times in that period, mostly Sunday lunch and not disappointed at all. The place has undergone a simple yet effective redecoration, the... More

My wife and I had dinner here last Saturday evening. We were visiting friends living in the vicinity who go quite frequently and they had booked a table for the four of us. We have been perhaps twice before, so our expectations were high. Our friends said there had been a change of ownership after many years in the same... More

I've been here a couple of times in the past and visited again with my Mum and some of her friends at the weekend and wondered how different it would be now that it had changed hands. Sadly, I really couldn't see any difference. Hand on heart this is not a restaurant I would chose to go to, but, my... More
