After a long day of travelling we just wanted a quick "menu". We chose well. Although quiet when we arrived it soon got busy. Quirky decor but warm and inviting. The staff were all friendly, the wine good and the food was excellent, perfectly cooked...More

We visited on a quite Tuesday night, an elderly waiter greeted us warmly at the door. As we sat on our table, conveniently next to the radiator we were promptly issued with menus full of French classics, we were instantly drawn into the experience. Whilst...More
