What a lovely little French retreat. Great food, great staff and great service. Classic French cuisine at its finest. Would definitely recommend and will have no hesitation in going back. Thank you Bouchon for a great evening.

I visit Bouchon every time I visit Hexham and am always well received. The menu contains some favourites including duck confit and excellent steaks. Service is always good - I'll be back.
