Lovely food and great service. Steak was beautiful, as was the lamb. Starters of mussels and brie were also generous and tasty.

Wonderful meal during our honeymoon stay in Richmond. We have been to France many many times and our meal was exceptional. I had all three courses and each course was amazing. Great wine too! Staff were very attentive and did not rush us and when...I finished off my coffee I realised we’d been there over 2 and a half hours. I wish I was local to Richmond as I’d been visiting this restaurant on a regular basis!More

My Husband and I ate here through recomendation by our hotel owner. Cute little place nicely presented. For starters we had the Prawn and mango and the garlic mushrooms, both were so tasty and plenty of. Main was the rump stake and the sea bass....The sea bass was very tasty, would have like a bit more of the vegetables as there were hardly any on the plate. Deserts were lovely. All in all we enjoyed it and thought it was priced well, £54 for 3 courses and a large glass of wine each.More

We had pre-booked the table a number of weeks before and double checked our booking the day before by visiting this restaurant the day before. When we arrived for our meal the young lady in front of house was very abrupt immediately saying they had...no tables available if we hadn’t booked not giving us the chance to say we had. There were a number of dishes unavailable and the online menu was incorrect. The same lady told us the website had been hacked. I asked for a non alcoholic lager or Prosecco which she told me the night before they had ran out if non alcoholic Beer . All in all the setting was beautiful but customer care/quality if service was lacking. The food we found was mediocre and quite honestly the whole experience was disappointing to say the least. We won’t be returning Denise BlanchardMore

We visited last week as this was quite high up on TripAdvisor. On first impression it looked lovely, the menu was French inspired, however the food was very poor, the mushroom soup was like porridge and the bread was supermarket quality. I had duck which...they said was served pink, this was ok for me but when I cut into it it was uncooked and I had to ask for it to be cooked more. They did this readily so I can't fault the service. My husband had the pork, both meals were served with red cabbage and a sauce which was far too sweet. The service was so quick the food must have been pre cooked. We arrived at 8pm and were out by 9pm. Clearly the staff wanted to close early and we saw the chef leave. If you are looking for authentic French food then don't go here. Sadly there are no good places to eat in Richmond but we found a few in other villages that were really good.More

I wouldn’t call it a large menu, but they were offering both the lunch and evening menus for dinner when we were there a couple of weeks ago, so enough options available.

I never saw one tbh. But there were a few children there,so I would think they would do smaller portions. Most restaurants are pretty good at accommodating kiddies.
