Lovely meal and great service. Early bird menu is great value considering it includes half a bottle of wine each.

If you are looking for a lively place with good french cooking then Kendells will fit the bill. It is noisy but the place does have a buzz - the food menu is extensive and there is a good wine list. Ideal for groups.

A quick look on Trip and this place came up , which is 1 min walk to West Yorkshire Playhouse. Celebrated a wedding anniversary and received a surprised glass of bubbles. Food and service was first class. Perfect for a pre theatre meal. Max

We visited here on a Tuesday evening so it wasn't as mad busy as I'm led to believe it can be on a weekend. We were immediately asked if our visit was a special occasion and, upon mentioning that it was our anniversary, we were...More

Fantastic atmosphere, could have been in Paris. The menu from the blackboard was extensive and varied. We were 2 couples and all each had a different starter, main course and dessert, and every one was amazing. We had snails, pigeon terrine, moules and fish soup....More

We went here for dinner as the place was recommended but sadly we were disappointed, the atmosphere is lovely, twinkling lights and candles, lovely staff but didn't enjoy the food, to be fair they did remove one of our main courses from the bill though.

Having just returned from a holiday in Paris, we were keen to carry on the vibe and this place, on paper, seemed to fit the bill. On arrival the place was full. The ambience and decor maybe a tad to loud and cluttered to be...More

From my experience it would be possible for a road side drop off. I think access to the restaurant itself is via a "ramp". Not sure about the toilets though sorry. Hope it helps because the food imo is well worth it...
do you do gluten free

Yes they have lots of gluten free options and they are stated in the menu. also the waitress asks if there are any allergies. my brothers gluten free and this is one of his favourite places to eat.
Hello, can anybody tell me the type of mains? we have some fussy people in our group who would be over joyed with a steak and chips :) but there is others in our group who like to try new foods... Thank you :)
