The tasting menu with accompanying wine was absolutely tremendous and I would highly recommend as the research and thought that’s gone into the menu makes for a special night

The Apple Martini’s are also pretty spectacular too

As always, delicious food, beautifully presented. The restaurant was decorated beautifully for Christmas and we very quickly forgot that people were wearing masks and about all the other little covid adaptations and just enjoyed ourselves.

Welcome and friendly service, food from the regular dinner menu was absolutely delicious and enjoyed the wine. Nice subtle touches arranged by them for my wife's birthday, not too garish. We had no concerns for COVID safety, they're doing it all properly.
The only negative was customers walking into the restaurant and waiting whilst holding the doors open so the chilly 4 degree winter air kept invading the dinner area. Having groups of them standing around close to our table getting their temperature checked was not pleasant. I'm unsure whether there was a sign outside, but customers should be made to wait outside the door of the dining area for them to be checked-in and COVID checks undertaken. I recommend trying to get a table as far away from the entrance as possible when booking.

An exquisite lunch and with so much attention to detail. We had a delightful time over a long lunch. Much appreciated the complimentary digestive at the end. So good these days to have a venue that is not trying to wish you away as quickly as possilbe.

We were looking forward very much to our dinner on Saturday but of course the lockdown meant that it was cancelled. However, we had the best takeaway you could possibly imagine, wonderful food presented in a beautifully imaginative way that was incredibly easy to serve, a brilliant achievement to organise a complex tasting menu in such a convenient way, thank you very much!

Had a great meal my only feedback we weren’t informed of the change from beef to lamb, plus it wasn’t cooked to my liking and over heard another guest how do you like it cooked. Plus the lamb had goats curds which l didn’t like. Otherwise it’s was prefect

This was quite a special meal as I booked some weeks ago for my birthday and I don’t eat out that often. After a Government announcement that restaurants had to close again on 5th November I thought I wouldn’t be able to squeeze lunch in with my son on the 4th. But The French Table was open and we enjoyed the usual wonderful food and service for which it is renowned. Everything was perfect and, in these Covid aware times, felt very safe.

We had the tasting menu for lunch, with matching wine. It was simply sensational.
Very good value for such delicious food and a slurp of wine with each dish made it extra special. I cannot recommend the food highly enough. What a treat.

It was my partners 60th birthday - and a surprise dinner. We were greeted by a friendly and efficient waitress and led to our cosy corner table. The menu was printed with his name on - a nice touch as a memento of the evening.
The food was explained carefully and was every bit at delicious as it sounded, with exquisite presentation.
A truly wonderful evening.

We went to The French Table on 29th October - to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary the day before (which the staff were aware of) - our first visit. They really came up trumps - glitter hearts sprinkled on the table, personalised menus and a congratulatory message piped on our dessert platters! We couldn't fault the food, service, ambience and Covid precautions. Very enjoyable and we'll certainly book again.

Only slight issue is the size of the tables which are far too small to accommodate plates, water, wine etc comfortably.

We had a most enjoyable evening at The French Table - a good varied and imaginative menu and excellent cooking. The wine list is first rate (a very good Cahors for £29) and the mark up is fair. It is not cheap but then the quality of food is worth it.
