I have eaten here twice in the last two months and I have immensely enjoyed the experience. The food has been excellent, the ambience charming and the staff cheeky and engaging. I will be going again and can heartily recommend it.

Having just returned from France with severe withdrawal symptoms, tonight at Chez Joel was an absolute delight. Wonderful food with excellent service in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Had dinner here recently and found this place on tripadvisor so decided to go! A small bistro French style café as part of a deli on the High Street.

Our third visit - this time with two friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. Sarah had specially decorated our table and made us very welcome. The food was, as usual, wonderful and Sarah suggested some new house wines which went beautifully with our menu choices. At the end of our meal Sarah got the whole restaurant to sing "Happy Birthday"... More
