£41 and over
Modern European
Bruce Poole and Nigel Platts-Martin opened Chez Bruce in 1995. From the outset, it was their intention to serve the very best food and drink but within a relaxed, informal yet thoroughly professionally orchestrated environment.
At Chez Bruce we are not particularly into gadgets and tricks in the kitchen. Home-made charcuterie, slow cooked braises, offal, warm and cold salads, classical desserts and bread-making could be listed as specialities. We also take the cheese board very seriously indeed and it forms an integral part of the restaurant's day-to-day life.
The Directors of the restaurant are fanatical wine-lovers and are very proud of the restaurant's wine list which truly is one of the very best in the UK.

    The food, ambience and value for money were excellent as usual. Unfortunately they over charged us for the meal. However, they realised this afterwards and refunded us which was good. Would have been 10/10 but for the overcharge.

    This was quite simply an amazing lunch to celebrate my wifes' 40th Birthday. Her parents have said that it is right up there with the places they have ever dined. Staff were wonderful and the food superb. We certainly didn't need to eat again in the evening...... Oh and the cheese trolley is a must!

    Lovely lunch but with a bumpy start! The Maitre D tried to seat us at the worst table which we declined. In a dead space far corner of the room which they should replace with a lamp or plant. Being 2 women maybe he thought he could get away with trying to fill it? Funnily it was the last table to be filled & by 2 women!!

    Chez Bruce is a fabulous restaurant and the food is exquisite. We have been to lunch a few times and it never disappoints. The staff are superb and very attentive. We could not fault this restaurant, they definitely have got in right in every way. Food, staff, ambience and extremely good value for money.

    Finally made it to this esteemed restaurant and had a very enjoyable evening. The seating for couples was refreshingly at right angels by default, rather than opposite each other which my wife and I prefer.

    From the moment you arrive at Chez Bruce you know you are in a "proper" restaurant. Staff are warm friendly and knowledgeable. They clearly know that they are working in a great place. Food is exceptional, highlight for me was the baked apple dish which was definately the best of it's kind I have tasted (and I normally am more of a savoury person). Bruce appeared at the end to say Happy Birthday to my Mother and said "don't wait for a special occasion next time, just come hungrey." We will.

    We had a few life events to celebrate and Chez Bruce never fails to deliver. We all enjoyed amazing food and finished with the infamous cheese board. Lots of surprise treats along the way; including non stop fresh bread, exquisite Parmesan crisps and melt in the mouth truffles. My only negative is that there could be more vegetarian choices. I'm a pescatarian so can also eat fish, but for a true veggie there is only ever one main course which is a shame.
