We had the most fantastic evening here! Friendly and welcoming, and the food was all absolutely delicious. Couldn't fault a thing, and look forward to returning after lockdown. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

What a charming restaurant this is. This was our first experience of Chez D - the evening before the second lockdown. The staff were cheerful - service impeccable - atmosphere jolly - and food faultless. We'll be back !

What a delight to find a genuine French restaurant where the food was made from scratch, full of flavour and adventure, beautifully presented, served by a gentle and professional maitre de maison and in simple, stylish surroundings.

A truly memorable menu, meal and experience. The whole family would highly recommend this gem of a restaurant!

We had the three course meal offer. The food was excellent. We both said it was the best meal we'd had for a long time. The wine (Merlot) was very good and at a very reasonable price. The waiter and waitress were very attentive.

We had lunch at the restaurant and the menu was £20 for 2 courses and £24 for 3.
There were 5 choices of starters and 4 main course with another 4 specials where there was an extra charge. There were sides to order at extra cost.
There was enough choice for starters and mains. The dishes we chose were good quality and flavoursome. The quantities were just fine for our appetites - we didn’t order any sides.

Really enjoyed eating here, very relaxed experience. Not rushed in any way, I felt we were given enough time to chat and relax without waiting too long for food. Waiters were attentive, atmosphere was cosy and quiet. Food is definitely suited to a more refined palette, and portions are not overly large, but the food was delicious and value for money was good. Overall a lovely time and would visit again.

Lovely little spot, they have managed to make social distancing work while keeping a nice ambience. The steak frites was good and we had a lovely bottle of red. The staff were very friendly and brought us a complimentary glass of bubbles as we were celebrating our anniversary. Would go again!

Very enjoyable. On reflection a steak knife would have been helpful. The steak was cooked as requested but a sharper knife was needed. Thank you for the birthday fizz - v thoughtful

My wife and I went for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. Everything was cooked to perfection and we had a glass of Prosecco waiting for us on arrival, so great attention to detail by the waiting staff (I'd previously mentioned the anniversary when booking the table).

Would highly recommend booking at least a week in advance, especially during the current climate, as we saw plenty of people turned away.
