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.

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!

We often visit for family occasions and we have always enjoyed our experience. It's like being transported to a restaurant in France. The staff are very friendly and the food is always delightful.

Had a great evening here after taking my pet dragon to the picture (Fantastic beasts & were to find them) You need to book as it's very popular. Service was great with a few sorbet palett cleansers between courses. Good wine list & french food. I had the duck with dark berry & red wine reduction.

This lovely restaurant oozes character and I do not recognise the comments made by other contributors. I had lunch here with an old pal recently - not for the first time. We always get a warm welcome and the service is efficient and courteous. After settling in with a glass of beer we made our food choices. I had a... More

We hadn't been to The French Connection for a few years but decided to visit as we are now livving within a 15 minute walk of the restaurant. We were not disappointed, and it is just a shame that on a Wednesday evening only two other tables were occupied, so there was not a great deal of atmosphere. We had... More

My wife and I had dinner at the restaurant on the evening of the 26th October 16. The food and service were very good, but the seating was old and uncomfortable and there was no heating on. We sat and eat dinner with our coats on.
