This is one of the best French style restaurants we have eaten at. The venison sausages were excellent. Do not be put off by the exterior and the very ordinary bar that adjoins the restaurant. Strongly recommended

Our favourite place to eat - wonderful French menu using many local ingredients. Stylist cooking and presentation, well thought out menu. Well kept beer and a very drinkable house wine. Highly recommended.
