Have been here before but not easy to get in on a Saturday night however as we are a group of foodies we booked well in advance.
Worth the wait beautifully prepared food & taste was amazing. Service was great really helpful & friendly. The 3 course meal was £45 which was really good value for the meals we ordered & the wine list was not overpriced !
Loved it !

There were two of us dining, and this was not our first visit. The service was excellent. On this occasion however the food was not up to the usual high standard. The first courses were decorative but tasteless, the main course was over cooked and lacked a rich enough sauce to balance the dry meat from the duck. The third courses were enjoyable.
All in all, a disappointing meal, though the service was as always, faultless.

The food is good, if a somewhat limited menu, but it falls down a little on service. Staff are polite and friendly but spend so much time rushing to and from the kitchen, they fail to see when a customer is trying to catch their eye. Efficiency above service. It’s on the pricey side and so I’d probably choose somewhere else when splashing my cash.

We went with friends for Friday lunch and had absolutely great food - it was beautifully presented, great taste and quality and just a really enjoyable experience at a very reasonable price considering the quality - really liked that the menu had 4-5 options for each course which to me means you ensure ingredients are in season and respect what they are and where they have come from.
Wines though were expensive but overall a great experience

We chose the tasting menu, which has five courses, plus a veloute and sorbet, with wines selected to go with each course. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty, with the portions just right for an extended menu. None of the wines were ones I would have selected, but they were all good and went particularly well with the relevant courses. Service was helpful and friendly. All told a really enjoyable evening - we will definitely go back!

We chose the French Table because it is the best restaurant in our area and we were celebrating a significant birthday. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a memorable experience from the name and age of our guest on the menu, to age confetti sprinkled on the table, and a Happy Birthday message with his age and name written in chocolate on his dessert with a candle. It could not have been nicer. The food was fabulous including gluten free options for our guest, the staff were lovely and professional. I would recommend this to anyone and we will not wait for another significant event to return.

Great dinner as always. Service was impeccable and the wine to die for.
The food was cooked to (almost) perfection. One very minor point on the trio of pig - some meat was a bit too dry but overall a very accomplished dish.

The french table never disappoints. The taster menu is our preferred choice with the wine flight.
The wines may sometimes not be something we would chose, but this adds to the whole experience, and you have the option to change.
The food was exceptional, and each dish left you craving for more. But by the end, you are well satisfied.
Please never change, many thanks.
