We went to Le Chanterelle as we'd heard of it in the local free paper and thought it would make a nice place for our anniversary meal. We weren't proved wrong! The staff were friendly and courteous and its small size meant that it had an intimate feel with plenty of time to look after diners. We went when they were serving the bistro menu and whilst the food was not cheap, it was good value. We both particuarly liked the Double Denhay Cheese Souffle as a starter so we'd recommend that. I was also impressed by the wine list. Again, not the cheapest but all seemed to be good quality stuff with a focus on New World wines that went well with the food.
Talking with the owner we found out that she had started the place with her son. He is a classically trained young chef (22) who runs the kitchen and she runs the front of house. They keep it small so that he can gain experience and get confident with service, which seemed like a really nice gift from his mum!
If you're in the area it is well worth a visit but do book ahead as sometimes it is quiet, as when we went, but with a limited number of covers (c 20) it can also fill rapidly and it would be a shame to miss out.
