This was our office outing in place of the summer party. Service was slow,my bacon lardons salad had about 3 miniscule pieces of bacon in it, not all the side dishes that we ordered were delivered when we eventually got them (15 minutes after the mains)and we had another long wait for the deserts. There were only 12 of us... More

We were a table of 8, slightly slow to take order but drinks and starters came very quickly. Mains followed soon after. One Steak had to be cooked a touch more but they quickly sorted that, and waitress was excellent overall. Cost per couple Inc 3 bottles medium priced wine £87.00 Inc service which wasn't bad.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday last night, I phoned ahead to tell them it was a special occasion so when we sat down we were greeted with a lovely glass of champagne as a little treat. The calamari was some of the nicest we've had mainly because it was crispy, not greasy. Plus in so many restaurants,... More

Visited on Friday afternoon December 30th. We were attended to right away, immediately shown to a table, with great, great service and attention by server Tom. He constantly checked on us throughout the time we were there. Consistently asked us if we were satisfied with our starters, entrees, and dessert throughout the entire meal. My wife and I had a...

My husband and I visited here late in the evening. We were greeted very well, they had an excellent menu especially for me as I'm a coeliac. They had a separate menu which was excellent. I orders a fish stew, they paired it with a lovely white wine. We had an excellent evening

Our inspiration for the food and design of Cote is a modern interpretation of the many famous bistros of Paris. Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. On the menu, guests will always find brasserie favourites on our a la carte menu such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and tuna Nicoise, for dessert, Cote's creme caramel and creme brulee are much-loved house specialities.
Seasonality and Cote's commitment to sourcing high-quality ingredients results in a monthly changing specials menu, ensuring there is always something new to delight regular guests and gastronomes alike, as well as the excellent value set menu. Open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner; Cote's atmosphere is informal and friendly
