Bouchon is well worth looking out. Its elegant exterior gives way to sumptuous internal decor which is places is looking a bit tired. But it's the food that counts and that is very good. Think the bistro fare of yesteryear -steak frites, duck confit, escargots, charcuterie, clafoutis, profiteroles. However they are not at menu du jour prices ( although I did notice that there was an early bird menu), but the food is very good. My trout three ways was a piscine delight, the rib eye steak melting good and the chunky chips in duck fat ( a nod to the Brits) were yummy. The cheese board was exceptional ( and French). The waiters are welcoming, attentive and slip seamlessly between English and French which adds to the gallic mood. At around £40 per head without wine, not cheap, but good value and I can recommend it

Fantastic service and absolutely delicious food.
Staff members were very friendly and food was absolutely worth the price as food is always freshly cooked by a great chef.
We tried the crispy duck which was absolutely delicious.
Definitely give this place a try.

On Monday evening last we were driving back from a day at Carlisle and phoned en route for a table for three. we arrived 10 minutes later and had choice of tables . lovely friendly welcome and a very comfortable corner table and we come the early bird menu which had excellent choice, being a monday this was still available at 7.30 when we arrived . The very convivial service and beautiful food was exceptional from beginning to end and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed the unplanned evening in a relaxed and comfortable ambiance as if we were in France. Thank you !!
