Just superb. This was our last “treat” in a weekend away just before lockdown in 2020 and it did not disappoint on our return. Fabulous food, lovely wine, friendly staff. You must book, otherwise you won’t get a table. Just save room for us please!

We had an excellent lunch at Chez Dominique, they clearly have a great reputation and it is well deserved. We booked at 1pm on a Monday and every other table was full, which we took as a good sign. The place is completely laid back and unpretentious, while still offering great service. Our food was flavorful and cooked wonderfully well whether bream, steak, or chocolate fondant. There's a 2 course and 3 course fixed price lunch menu and plenty of wines by the glass if you're not staying for a full bottle. I wouldn't hesitate to come back, on a date, with friends, or with family.

We had a really good meal here and staff were so accommodating as originally booked for 6.30 they changed it to suit us better for 7.30.

This was a Friday evening and it very soon became full but the noise level was moderate, considering.

My wife was presented with a free glass of Prosecco as it was her 70th, but disappointingly only for one, so I had to order and pay for mine (£6.90- ouch ! ) which I felt was a bit mean.

It was a good overall dining experience, though and therefore I would go for it ! !

The food ambiance and restaurant were very good. Unfortunately, the service was really disappointing; we arrived at 8 and had to wait until 8.15 to get our drinks. We ordered bread, olives, and chorizo as starters, even though they were listed as nibbles for the table, and the bread and olives came, but we had to ask for the chorizo after waiting almost ten minutes.

For the mains, we ordered steak. By the time they came out, we had been at the restaurant for 1hr20mins. There were 3 tables that came in after us, all booked for later, and they had their starters and mains before we got ours. The food was tasty when it did arrive, but given what was ordered, I'm not sure why we had to wait so long (compared to others too). Therefore, the overall experience was a bit of a letdown.

Family run restaurant where every staff member is enthusiastic about the service provided from the wine list to each dish on the menu. Second time coming here and the consistent factor was the food. Simple brilliance, classic style cuisine doing the most possible with great produce without unnecessary frills or trends which can be tiresome in most restaurants.

Good friendly and prompt service. Wines moderately priced and excellent food with a good selection on the menu but not too many choices. All of the food was nicely seasoned and very enjoyable. My daughter was given a complementary glass of Prosecco for her birthday. I would recommend this restaurant.

We were welcomed politely. We then waited half an hour and when I enquired about the wait the reply was rude and I was told that because everyone arrived approximately the same time for lunch there was no need to express any problem with the wait. We had risotto which we returned as it was at best lukewarm. When our meal then came back it was not good, unimaginative and bland.
Would I return.... No .

Everything was as good as it always is, only one small niggle and I only realised it after I'd eaten the meal (too much good conversation!) I had the pork chop which I'm sure was supposed to come on a bed of mashed potatoes but there was no mash, only cabbage and no explanation either! My friend was served mint tea instead of English breakfast but that was easily rectified and profuse apologies given. None of this is dulled our enjoyment though and would not stop me returning at the earliest opportunity!
Missed the complimentary bread basket though.
Lovely, friendly staff and good service overall.
