This is a chain restaurant - and the menu satisfactory, but not very adventurous. However, this is made up by the warm and friendly service - who also see to it that kids feel welcome.

You'll love a visit to Café Rouge Loughton... fabulous French fare set amongst a beautiful landscaped outdoor eating area and an interior designed to transport you to a bistro in the heart of Paris. For larger parties there's a private room available, and on certain nights live music is organised. What could be better than sharing a bottle of your fave wine while enjoying your night away?
