We called in by chance and had a pleasant lunch from the set menu. The lamb was well done which was what we wanted but perhaps to the English rather than the French taste. A nice glass of white Burgundy. Service was efficient and friendly.

My fiancée and I visited the bistro with her brother and his girlfriend and we had a lovely evening. The food was good and there was quite a lot of choice. The only thing that was that there was only one portion of mussels for...More

Business lunch and first time. My guests suggested the Tavern but I thought we would move up a notch. What a great choice. Fantastic service, food and ambiance. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We came for a quick working lunch and it perfectly met our expectations in a cosy environment. To be noted: the white "wine of the house" from New Zealand.

Nice decor and overall good atmosphere. But the food was a bit disappointing. My starter of Les deux crabes on toasted sourdough was poorly presented and strongly stank of fish which I believe it should not. The main was okay - I had the grilled...More

Amateur service and lousy food - whats to like? Spend your £ somewhere more worthy. Service was rude abrupt and amateur and food was cremated and tasteless. Wine was also horrible the carafe had certainly been left open.

Not difficult to see why this place was empty on a Friday night. Unspeakably average food at relatively inflated prices. Like Cafe Rouge with worse frites!! I took my family here because I remember it very fondly from lots of good meals here a few...More

Description
Our busy buzzy Bistro with its striking 19th Century French wine posters and eccentric Vineyard Sculpture combines a warm ambience and cheerful yet professional service with traditional French dishes ranging from Coq au Vin and Steak Frites to Lapin à la Moutarde and Navarin of Organic Lamb, plus a great-value list of 450 wines by the bottle and more than a dozen by the glass. From Spring to Autumn the Bistro has a secluded court yard terrace sitting more than 30.
