Delicious, authentic french cuisine, very impressive and one of the best meals I've had for some time. Great attention to detail on all dishes, each course fantastic. Add a good wine selection and attentive (but not over the top) service and you can't ask for anything more

Me and my girlfriend dined here on Monday evening. The staff were fantastic especially the gentleman serving us who we believe was the manager. If he isn't he should be. He was great at recommending dishes and his knowledge of the food was very impressive. The chicken parfait and trout three ways I would defiantly recommend you try. The main... More

We had intended an 'early bite' but this place is so popular we had to settle for a later reservation and it was certainly worth waiting for! The food is delicious authentic french cuisine and service is relaxed but attentive. No where to touch Bouchon for miles around here. A happy 10th anniversary to what has become a local institution!

Wonderful food, the best we have had in Northumberland. Friendly but not over attentive, just right. Would recommend and worth the journey so will be back.

Visited on recommendation of local friends and we were not disappointed. Food was delicious, with a little french flare, good service and an excellent setting. All round a really, really nice meal, topped of by a very good wine list.Not the cheapest, but good value given the quality of food

Had not visited Bouchon for a couple of years but returned for dinner last night. Delighted to find everything is as good as, or even better than, before. Their Early Bird Menu is available all evening Monday to Wednesday and is ideal if you are after a lighter meal and is excellent value. I chose the Soup du Jour and... More
