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.

As well as a restaurant, our bistrot also features a lively bar where customers can relax and enjoy our varied and delicious bar menu, along with a wide range of cocktails, wine and drinks.

We had a superb table by the window, and were waited on by a delightful girl, she was attentive throughout the meal, and ready to help at any time. Our meals were excellent - well presented and delicious. Thank you, we will be back!
