It was my birthday and I spent it with my son's and a good friend. It was the first time for my son's and they loved it and will be visiting the restaurant again in the future, especially with girlfriend. I was surprised by a lovely piece of cake complete with a firework. At 70 it was the first time I had this surprise. As usual the food and wine was perfect and the staff are friendly and helpful. I always look forward to my next night out.

Roast beef dinner on a Sunday lunchtime was outstanding and the flavours were just right.
Bourgee lets itself down by lack of staff; so you are constantly trying to catch someone’s attention and then apologising for it! The staff, however are friendly and polite if overstretched.

Fantastic looking restaurant! Staff are very friendly and the service is great.
Steak is superb and very reasonable price for the quality of the steak. You could easily go to other restaurants and pay more for a steak but the quality would be no where near as good.
Highly recommend Bourgee!

I just love Bourgee! Every time we have been it has been fantastic the food is lovely, the venue is great and the staff are very attentive too - the afternoon tea is different to your normal afternoon tea no finger sandwiches here but I much prefer the Bourgee version - the Lobster/cheese bagels are to die for!! Im going back very soon!!

Menu doesn't change, but if it works...
They do a two course lunch for 12.50 or the a la carte menu. We were there for lunch we booked which I recommend as it got rather full and this was a Wednesday afternoon. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You are not hurried and can eat at your own pace which all lends itself to a great dining experience.

I have been to Bourgee 5 times and have never been disappointed. It is the place I choose for a special occasion. I have had lunch and afternoon tea as well as Evening Al a carte. The food has always been hot and tasty I have recommended it to several people who have also enjoyed the experience. Looking forward to the next time.
