We ate here on our last trip to the area a few years back. The food then was reliable bistro cooking and so it was this time.
Bread came first. Nothing particularly noteworthy here. Except for the finely chopped green olives – a tapenade if...More

Set in this beautiful little town, this bistro is a gem. Great cooking, interesting menu, very friendly staff and some wonderful touches like home baked bread and homemade chocolates. The duck was fantastic, as was the blueberry panna cotta.
I went recently with my husband for an evening meal. The food was cooked well, but the portions, particularly of the starters, were small. Not really fair when the charge was a straightforward £30 for two courses. The service was very slow. It also felt...More
From stepping in to leaving the Bistro there was such a warm welcome.
The bistro was modern, very clean and just big enough not to lose the personal touch.
The food was so good and prepared very quickly, definitely recommend!
Hopefully we’ll be back at...More

Thank you for your question, yes we have. the customer who put this on was here on a steady night and the toilet floor is a very pale in colour (my stupid mistake and it will be getting changed in January) and when wet gets mucky footprints. We do clean our bathroom on a daily basis to a high standard. I even go the extra mile and provide perfume, pocket tissues and flowers to make the experience more pleasant for my customers, I'm just sorry on this one occasion something went rather wrong and this will not happen again.
Please contact us further if you have any more questions.
