Our busy buzzy Bistro with its striking 19th Century French wine posters and eccentric Vineyard Sculpture combines a warm ambience and cheerful yet professional service with traditional French dishes ranging from Coq au Vin and Steak Frites to Lapin à la Moutarde and Navarin of Organic Lamb, plus a great-value list of 450 wines by the bottle and more than a dozen by the glass. From Spring to Autumn the Bistro has a secluded court yard terrace sitting more than 30.

I had not been to the Bistro for at least 10 years but little has changed. Arrived ahead of my hosts with a large suitcase and the maitre d' altered tables so my case could be stored next to me. Menus and water were provided...More

Pleasant spot a bit off the beaten path. Indoor and outdoor seating in nice weather. Overlooking a little square off the Main Street and away from the street noise. Interesting menu, good service, and a wine cellar down stairs.

I absolutely love this little gem! Today was my fourth visit which didn’t disappoint. You could almost be in a little courtyard in Paris, nestled in a little cobbled corner, sitting outside in the autumn sunshine! The menu is delicious, it’s seems to me there...More

Our main waiter seemed to have having an off day - grumpy and impatient one moment and all smiles and "mercy monsieur" the next. The food is simple, French and well priced and you can't really go wrong. Would recommend all the desserts, especially the...More

I hosted a business lunch here mid week. The service was good and friendly the food good and fair value. The outside courtyard is pretty although the weather meant we ate inside. Worth searching out if you’re in the area.

Had three courses each, and a bottle of wine between us and it was all delicious. The steak melted in the mouth, the sea bream was vast, and the service was superb. Highly recommend this restaurant.
