Location and contact

We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and crème brulee in most traditional way. Our relaxed and friendly bistrot is the place to go for any occasion. Open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner we have something for everyone, from the two-course prix-fixe lunch for £12.95 and a two-course early-evening menu for £15.95 to the sumptuous Evening menu. Wander through our distinctive French wine list too, with over 20 French wines sold by the glass you will discover something exquisite to drink with your meal. For something a little special we also host a range of events at the bistrot. Join us on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month for our

Busy Saturday night do didn't want to travel far. I had a starter of garlic and chilli prawns and when it arrived I laughed. 3 prawns!!! Food was nice especially the dessert. Wouldn't go again, it's better value at McDonald's.
