A pleasant surprise away from the bustle of the main streets and traditional outlets. The menu proclaims to be French to match the decor but you needn't be worried about finding snails and nouvelle cuisine. Instead we encountered well prepared fish: cod with chorizo, basmati and ratatouille and hake with gratin dauphinois. The fish was fresh and well prepared. The... More

Visited with friends on a Wednesday night and we were the only ones in. This is my 4th visit as I do like this place - the food is consistently good - however - on this occasion there were no chips and no mushrooms - when you fancy a mushroom omelette and chips - not great. I would love to... More

Had the sharing starter which was a very large portion. Pretty tasty stuff. For mains we had pork cheeks and duck. Both flavoursome although the duck could have done with less potatoes and maybe some extra veg? They have limited choices for wine by the glass but they are decent quality. Service was good, would return to try other items... More

Visited with friends on a Friday night. I like this place because it is different. It's part of the hotel so does have that hotel feel without being impersonal. The food is excellent. The service is friendly but sometimes awkward. New steine serves quality food in an unrushed; relaxed environment. At present you can use a tastecard here making it... More

The wierdest experience. My daughters steak was cremated, my sons crab cakes were awful, I have no idea what was in them, my chicken was dry as Gandi's flipflop!! The creme brulee tasted of washing up liquid. The man serving us was really lovely, to be honest I felt really sorry for him. He asked how our meal was and... More

Visited above bistro after being given a voucher for Christmas. 6 courses were all delicious! I do recommend a visit but make sure you have plenty of time as it takes around 2 hours! Staff very pleasant and helpful.

Been here a few times, recent visit Sat 22nd October. Really nice atmosphere and very friendly staff, and although the food is good the menu has become really boring as this hasn't been changed for ages. It has come to the stage where I am having the same thing every-time which is a real shame. For this restaurant to survive... More

Went there using a Groupon voucher. £23 for three courses for two people. The restaurant is basically a front room of a hotel in a terrace of Victorian Buildings. It caters for about twenty covers. The size gives a cosy more intimate atmosphere and we chatted to several of the other diners, all mainly on Groupon vouchers. There were two... More

At first glance it is a nice cosy place, almost feels like something somewhere on the continent. However after our first impression things went downhill. First of all we had the Assiette de Charcuterie – for two. The big surprise is that it was huge. Some would say that is not a bad thing. But the the bad part of... More
