We had an amazing dinner at the French table. It’s our second time there and we were not disapppointed. The food is fantastic (I’m French and I love my food !), service is impeccable. It’s a bit pricey but really worth it. Definitely, definitely recommends for special occasions.

Loved our experience at The French Table! Great family meal with options for children. The Christmas ambience was conducive to good conversation and there was enough tasteful festive decor to make this a delicious beginning to celebrations. Would definitely visit again.

I have eaten at The French Table many times, including my businesses Christmas Lunch for the past 5 years, and it never disappoints. Lovely to go to a restaurant where the menu is always different and intriguing. Excellent choice of wines and the service is attentive but not intrusive. Don't want to rate it to highly, as it is already difficult to get a table, and don't want it to get any more popular!!

I visited to take my partner out for her birthday lunch and we both absolutely loved it. We had the five course chef's tasting menu with wine pairing and it didn't disappoint. The food was beautuiful, however the highlight was the service. The waiting staff were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and were more than happy for us to take our time to enjoy the experience. I would highly recommend the French Table and totally understand why it is always so busy!

I cannot fault the French table in any way. I have never been to a restaurant that continually serves fantastic food with attentive but not overbearing staff and always has a lovely atmosphere. Ignore this little gem at your peril. Can't wait to go again soon.

Had a fantastic birthday celebration at the French Table. The food was exquisite and the service impeccable. We were really well looked after and there were some lovely thoughtful touches for the birthday girl! One of my guests commented "why doesn't this place have a Michelin star?" - the food was amazing and the wine list excellent (to suit all tastes and budgets).

Always a pleasure to dine here. We chose the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing and were not disappointed with an exceptional English white wine with the first course. They happily swapped my desert for cheese & a different wine to accompany. Bread was divine as always.

We cannot recommend this restaurant enough, the food was amazing and the service was fantastic. Attentive without over doing it, they really did a great job of making sure we had an enjoyable meal. We were celebrating our anniversary and when we arrived we found they had even decorated the table for us, and congratulated us on our arrival. It is little touches like that make such an impact. We are so glad to have found such a great restaurant in the local area, and will definitely be going back.
