What can I say? Firstly half of the menu wasn't available!! I ordered the Toulouse sausage to start.. which I was told 'we haven't served that for months I don't think we have it.. but if we do you can have it. Anyway, they had it, my partner ordered the 'flatbread'. Starters came and the flat bread was a brought... More

What a gem this place is. Hidden away in a little village, French food at a very reasonable price. Never had a bed meal here it's so lovely and so are the staff. Looking for something a bit different, date night starts here!

Had a belated Mother's Day lunch and she was treated like a queen! Food was lovely and very good value on the lunchtime menu. Service was excellent from the 2 lovely, friendly and attentive ladies. Well worth a visit.

The English can't cook properly and Le Coq Bistro does its level best to prove the point. We went en famille yesterday for lunch; my 'Cornish Sardines' starter was flacid, bland, served on a bed of 'salad' - actually just a few withered leaves of rocket which is something that shouldn't even be given to guinea pigs. My second course... More

Attended as a party of four as a Birthday treat. Attentive service, friendly and helpful We chose the 3 course menu and all of us were well satisfied with our choices. The traditional beef & Yorkshire puddings were great. Will definitely return - very soon

My husband and I had lunch here today. It was very welcoming and homely. The food was cooked to perfection. My husband said his steak was better than he has had in the more expensive restaurants we have visited. This bistro reminds me of the restaurants I worked in during the 1970s when attention was paid to detail and food... More

We have driven past this bistro many times so decided to call in one evening last summer. We were seated in a small gallery overlooking other diners which was good for people watching! Good food from a partially French inspired menu but very slow service. Interesting venue if you like somewhere with architectural character.

Thank Sproxo
