I visit this lovely restaurant on a regular basis with an old school friend. We are always looked after very well and the food is always of a high standard. Obviously the theme is French ambience and French cuisine. We are never disappointed. Highly recommended.

Love this little restaurant for excellent food and service. Always have something a bit different on the menu and a good wine selection. Fabulous. Can't wait for my next visit.

Last year's visit was somewhat disappointing. Smaller portions and the food was underwhelming. However, this year, the French Connection used their game. The waitress in the white top (can't recall her name) was attentive and charming. We were a party of 9 and had the three course Christmas menu. Nobody had any issues with the food. Duck, salmon etc starters... More

6 old friends having a catch-up over lunch. Restaurant was cool and that applied to the staff as well - efficient rather than warm and welcoming. But it was the food that was our big disappointment. Just as if they'd popped round to Waitrose and then warmed it up in their ovens. Have been here quite a few times over... More

My friends and I visited last week. I has the coq au vin and got food poisoning. We had to leave the restaurant because I was so ill. I mentioned it to the waitress and she said nothing. I also emailed them directly to let them know about our experience and haven't had a response.

Christopher H, Owner at French Connection, responded to this review

I was most concerned to read your review, especially as it contained an allegation that we had served you a dish that had made you ill. I understand that you ate Coq au Vin and you say that this dish had given you food poisoning so rapidly that you had to leave the restaurant. All food professionals are aware that... More

Visited with 7 friends from work for a relaxed Christmas lunch. Food was good, service brisk and efficient, though this was made easier by the absence of many other diners. Starters were good but my Brie could have been hotter. Similarly the main courses were well cooked but could also have been hotter. My salmon was cooked very well and... More

Living locally we'd been on about trying this place for some time. So we booked and went last Saturday. What a find! Excellent food and very good atmosphere, it does get very busy so you do need to book. The four of us enjoyed our food and wine and will be back!
