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.

Just five minutes walk from the town centre and main attractions like the Royal Shakespeare Company, our bistrot has become a favourite amongst locals, tourists and actors alike. Customers can also make their dining experience extra special, by dining in our private and intimate Clopton Room.

We have something for everyone, from our two course Prix fixe lunch for £11.95 and our two course Prix fixe early evening menu for £13.95 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.

Next door you’ll find our sister pub, The Bear Freehouse, which boasts 8 conditioned cask ales, quality draft lager, 28 wines by the glass and so much more. Click here to visit the website.

It's a great place to eat, I've eaten there with just my husband and also in a group of nearly 20, the food is always lovely and the service is friendly and professional. The steak pave is very good!
