Having been to the restaurant a few times before and enjoyed both the experience and the food, I was looking forward to our next visit for lunch. I booked for four people and requested a high chair for a baby in addition to the four...More

Fantastic neighbourhood bistro. Wonderful staff with quality of food simply superb for the price point. We went at lunch when three courses come in at under twenty quid. Textbook chicken patè, beef slow cooked and lacquered in the deepest of sauces, and a perfect almond...More

It's a one in a million, little gem where they seem to have got everything right. Not many places offer consistency throughout their great staff, food, venue and atmosphere but they have got everything perfect. I left feeling 100x better than when I walked in.
