We went for a Sunday roast which was absolutely delicious. The only thing I would say was the meat was very tough. Otherwise the veg and dauphinoise potatoes were spot on 👌🏼

It was very busy and they’d run out of lots of food. We were seated 20 minutes late meaning that we didn’t get food until 9pm when we had an 8pm booking.
The waitress was lovely and very apologetic.

Simply put one of the finest Sunday lunches I’ve ever had. One slight criticism is that the serving of dauphinois was a little small, but next time I will order an extra side.

The tarte tatin was the best I’ve ever had. Superb

The most delicious cocktail I've EVER had in the honey and thyme margherita, the food was really lovely, gorgeous atmosphere, and I loved getting to choose the cheeses for our cheese course. I recommend.

Didn’t even end up eating, as was ignored for 10 minutes waiting to be seated and then got seated in a dark cold corner and waited some more and still no service when we sat down! So we gave up and left.

No social distancing n the market and minimal mask compliance around the market from guests.

The food was very well cooked and presented. We had the duck which was delicious. The chocolate and walnut cake was the best ever. Cocktails packed a lunch and very tasty. Was disappointed they did not have the ox cheek on the menu but will go back to experience that.

The food was very good and simple in presentation which works really well. The wine we chose was good but If I had to make a comment, it would be that the pricing of the wine list doesn’t match the keen pricing of the food menu. Service was charming.

Everything about the evening was perfect from greeting until goodbyes. Superb recommendations for food and wine that delivered. Lovely helpful, funny staff. As a pair, we ended up sharing every dish as it was all just so good and we had to try as much as we could. Will be back to try the rest of the menu

Food frankly underwhelming for the price point (including eat out to help out.) Plenty of cheaper, better options in the market. Service ok but staff couldn't say if beef dry aged or not. Poor cheese board for a french restaurant. Pictures on the site given the impression it might be better than it is. Would avoid wasting money here.

Excellent steaks and food very tasty. Restaurant was busy so had to queue for table even though booked. Crowded and noisy, we had a party of 5 and although tables were rearranged it was not very comfortable. Overall a very enjoyable evening but for the prices charged not really comfortable enough experience.
