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.

Our bistrot is situated in the New Cooperage building which opens up onto a large outdoor terrace with seating. This overlooks a magnificent lawn, upon which a local farmers’ market takes place on the first Sunday of every month.

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.
