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 crème brûlée with our own take on regional favourites like tarte flambée, confit de canard and pâté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrots are the place to go for any occasion.

Housed in a former bank, the building was built at the turn of the century and today we use the old bank's vaults as a dry store. They're certainly an unusual kitchen addition, but they make a great walk in pantry!

We have something for everyone, from our two course Prix fixe lunch for £11.95 and our two course Pre théâtre menu for £14.95 to our evening À la carte menu. We also offer gluten-free dishes and a children's menu, which comes with our bespoke 14 page activity pack.
