Our ‘raison d’être’ is great value French cooking and seasonal menus. We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and tarte au citron with our own take on regional favourites like tarte flambée, Bouillabaisse and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrots are the place to go for any occasion.

Next door you’ll find our sister pub, The Crescent Inn, which boasts 8 real ales, 15 wines by the glass, honest home cooked food and eleven affordable boutique bedrooms. Click here to visit the website.
