    Whilst we greatly commend the efforts of this young couple to offer good food, well cooked and presented, we have to comment adversely on the rather limited limited menu. there is a distinct shortage of meat dishes, and, to my mind, an over provision of vegetarian and vegan alternatives. The pricing, whilst fair, errs on the high side. This results in my partner and myself patronising this otherwise excellent establishment, on fewer occasions as we know the menu limitations. A great pity as the chef is obviously talented, and maybe hampered by the very small kitchen, (a fault which should be directed at the original owners of this restaurant).

    My friend and I had a great dinner at this small but really nice restaurant. The mushroom soup we had as a starter was delicious and piping hot. The main - Beef pie - was really tasty and also delivered hot to our table. The service was really good - polite and quick.

    I love bistro 101. Always welcoming - delightful front of house staff, fabulous food, lovely ambience. I've been three times recently: Dinner on Sunday 4th Feb - we were a bit disappointed that the celeriac steak had already run out but that reflects ensuring everything fresh that day. The food we had was delicious and I was particularly impressed that the chef came to ask everyone's opinion Brunch on Friday 9th Feb - my favourite is the mushroom soup - truly the best I've ever had. Staff coped with friends' slightly odd requests and they were all delighted. Was also reminded how fab your coffee is! Lunch on Sunday 11th Feb - we'd walked a good walk to get there and were made so welcome. My husband had the mushroom soup and the turkey roast - he was bowled over! I tasted the Yorkshire pud which was perfect. But my lemon sole was simply the nicest fish I've had in a long time - perfectly cooked, really tangy lemon butter sauce, perfect chips and beautifully cooked side of broccoli and cabbage. I can't fault it. Thanks to the staff - I'm afraid I've forgotten the name of the lovely blonde haired woman who always makes me welcome. And also to Deven. Highly highly recommend.

    It is the first time we have been there. We were a group of 4 (two couples). We went for a Sunday roast and all 4 of us chose the beef. Food was truly outstanding, tasty and plenty of it; it may have been our first visit there, but it will definitely not be our last!
