Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our encounter with chef Anita-Clare who graced our kitchen was nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment they stepped through the door, we knew we were in for an unforgettable dinning experience. With great pleasure, I extend my highest compliments to a chef whose culinary...prowess is matched only by their remarkable ability to cater to our individual tastes and needs during our celebratory weekend.More

Where to start - from the quaint little entrance all beautifully lit by candlelight to the cosy ambiance to the amazing food and the staff. I love coming to see Anita and enjoying her food, I particularly enjoy that every time we come the menu...changes and we can try something new but one of us always gets the steak frites and béarnaise sauce cause it is absolutely to die for. Yes this is your typical pub it’s far much more. I love looking up the menu in advance and being able to take my time to decide what we will have that’s part of the experience. It’s also fab that you can turn up between 7-8 and within 5 minutes your starters are there , no messing around with menus which also means no food waste. We never leave feeling hungry always pleasantly full. Thank you Anita for another fabulous evening ❤️More

Having met Anita-Clare some years ago with her trusty French blue van, we had often meant to drive to Witheridge for a meal but never quite got there. My husband is a Coeliac and lactose intolerant which means eating out is never easy but with...our 20th wedding anniversary fast approaching, I contacted Anita-Clare and a menu was chosen and she arrived at our house at the duly appointed time and date and cooked one of the best meals we have ever eaten. It was wonderful for us not to have to worry about cross-contamination or any potential upset and she even sourced lactose free cheeses for our final course that included a Burrata which is unbelievable as it is usually made with mozzarella cheese and cream and laden with lactose. It was superb. The lemon cheesecake decorated beautifully with fruits and edible flowers was just incredible and we could not believe it was vegan (not that we are) but just brilliant. Desserts are usually nothing more than a fruit salad or sorbets for my husband so what a treat. Anita- Clare was also fun to chat with whilst in the kitchen with us and so friendly and her food knowledge outstanding. She also did the washing up and all in all, it was just superb. I will be booking her again to cook for a slightly larger party later in the year in our home and cannot recommend her enough. She is a credit to her chosen profession.More

Thank you so much for another lovely evening. This was our 6th visit and this time for our wedding anniversary. Pre-ordering our food is an excellent idea, it gives time to make a proper choice and ensures no wasted food. We loved our choices of...the pulled jack fruit starter (the best that I have ever had), the red mullet main course was delicious and our desserts - the vegan sticky toffee pudding and the sticky toffee apple pudding were sublime!

I booked La Petite Bouchée a while ago to cook a meal for four for a special occasion and admit to being anxious about having someone using my kitchen in my presence. I needn’t have worried, Anita-Clare arrived armed with a small, cool box-cum-flight bag...and swept in like a culinary version of Mary Poppins. Not being a great fan of formality, I had expressly asked for a casual and informal approach, Anita-Clare prepped, cooked, served and removed the most incredible food in an unobtrusive and relaxed fashion. I am dairy-free and hate to ask for special treatment on my behalf but my requests were very well met; every course was dairy-free however, nobody would be able to tell ingredients had been swapped out - from start, to finish the meal was utterly fantastic. Everything was spot on. Taking inspiration from suggested likes and dislikes Anita-Clare had carefully selected three courses of delicious food; prawn and scallop rillettes, duck breast on roti and lemon cheesecake, as with every skilled craftsman the entire thing seemed to be effortlessly executed, but the results were superb! My concern about formality was unfounded, the chef put us all at ease, we felt pampered and very spoilt. At the end of the meal, the kitchen was cleaned, the washing up done, Mary Poppins took her bag and left four very happy customers. Thank you Anita-Clare, you’re a complete star!More

I was sincerely hoping that my long awaited supper plans weren’t like that youth club disco snog with the chap you’d fancied all...year but would turn out to be nothing like you’d thought!!! Turns out that on this occasion I need not have worried and it was better than expected - is that actually.

This was our first visit to La Petite Bouchee and will certainly not be our last. On arrival we were warmly greeting by the young waitress, followed by the chef/patron who remembered we'd not long moved to the area. All our food was excellent, my...steak was cooked perfectly (I like it rare) and was melt in the mouth. My husband loved his moules main his only regret being he didn't have any bread to mop up with but he managed with a spoon.
