I have eaten at the French table and never been disappointed. The last visit was for my husband's birthday and they made it feel special. both of us were delighted with our food. It was Sunday lunch so set price of £38 for 3 courses. Great value for money
The food and service at the French Table was fantastic as always. My husband and I had the tasting menu. It was obviously delicious, and the wine pairing too. I really enjoyed the crab, and Surrey beef fillet. So nice to have a fun night out!
Great food great service great night
Excellent food and perfect service, as always. The wine list is unusual but good, but it does lack a choice of staples such as white Burgundy, Rhone reds, clarets and Spanish reds.
A real treat - as always wonderful service, beatiful food and a great atmosphere. Thank you.
Wonderful to return to the French Table. Our fussy daughter was concerned she might not like anything on the condensed menu but was saved by the special which turned out to be her favourite! They also welcomed our 2 month old baby (and luckily he was very good!)
Excellent as always, the staff attentive without being intrusive.
Lovely food. Very considerate of my husband's food intolerances and really went the extra mile to provide great food for him. An excellent meal.
Really lovely food and service. An outstanding local restaurant
Delicious food in a lovely atmosphere. The staff were kind & attentive. We sat in the window at the front of the restaurant on a sunny day, which was lovely & bright, but did become hot. The windows didn’t appear to open. A very minor niggle though, we will be back!
The 3 course for £36 lunch represents good value in terms of variety on offer and the food is well presented and portions sensible enough to ensure you make it to the dessert course. Staff were engaging. The crunchy brocolli side deserves a special mention - a veritable taste sensation. And the specials of the day were a hit all round as I chose all of these for my three courses. A neighbourhood gem that we would all want in our local town.
A warm welcome always awaits you at this excellent local restaurant with interesting specials and a regular monthly change of menu to keep the diners interested and the choice fresh. I always enjoy my visits to TFT.
An excellent lunch! I had three courses, all of them the 'specials' of the day, and all very tasty. The fillet steak was especially flavoursome, which fillet isn't always. And the portion sizes were spot on for us...enough to feel you'd had a good meal but not so much that you feel uncomfortable.
Staff were attentive without being intrusive and the spacing of the tables because of covid really should stay long-term; previously, tables for two felt crammed in.
Outstanding! One of the best meals I've ever had. My partner and I had the five-course tasting menu as a belated birthday meal and everything was just perfect. Every course was delicious and so well thought out with wines that matched perfectly. To top it off the staff were perfect; knowledgeable, friendly and incredibly professional. Will definitely be returning as soon as possible!
Went to the french table for my birthday, it was great, had a fantastic meal, our waitress was so lovely and couldn’t do enough.The service was so good
The menu is always sophisticated, original and dishes are impeccably presented at this neighbourhood gem. Service is warm and professional and the staff are happy and able to advise on choices with confidence. The French Table on leafy Maple Road is a thoroughly lovely dining experience.
Lovely to be back! Delicious food once again. Excellent service. Felt Covid secure.
So glad to be back at one of our favourite restaurants. Food was excellent as always, and staff just as friendly despite being very disciplined in their COVID protective measures. Felt a safe and comfortable environment to enjoy a superb meal. Already finding an excuse for our next visit! Well done all the TFT team.
Cannot rate this place highly enough. Five stars all the way. Exquisite, delicious food. Good range of wine. Staff got the right balance of professionalism and friendliness. They were extremely knowledgeable about food/drink.
Wonderful atmosphere. Simply stunning.
Fantastic food, professional and courteous service. What more could you want?
Brilliant tasting menu with selected wines and super efficient service
Helped to make our ruby wedding anniversary dinner with the family a very special evening. Highly recommend.
Another excellent tasting menu lunch. Up there with Michelin-starred Chez Bruce. Surprisingly busy on a Wednesday lunch in September. Lovely range of flavours, though perhaps a little salty (if you're being picky).
We had such a lovely time. The service was excellent and the food and drink were amazing. When asked for something they did not have - they went and found it next door!! Lovely way to celebrate our anniversary with friends. We shall definitely return in the near future. Thank you! Xx
Amazing celebration for anniversary. Delicious food and fantastic service. Feel incredibly spoiled
Wonderful meal and went the extra mile with personal touches to make the occasion even more special. Thank you
Never a bad meal at French table. Could not recommend them enough to anyone who will listen!
Another lovely lunch at this restaurant.
Food was delicious, well balanced menu with plenty of choice to suit all palettes.
Service was efficient, attention to detail was great.
Great service and excellent food as ever. Wonderful to be back.
Michelin quality food every time at non-Michelin prices.
Food was tasty, pairing wines were better! Restaurant very attentive to making changes to the tasting menu based on allergies. Would recommend
Everything you would expect from a restaurant of this calibre great food attentive service. Going again can't wait.
It was a joy to be at FT this week. Beautiful food and friendly service. Probably my favourite restaurant
Lovely welcome with very unobtrusive COVID checks. We ate at lunchtime. Everything was delicious. I had razor clams and duck both of which were perfect. My wife had plaice as a starter and scallops and enjoyed both. The deserts were exactly right to finish an enjoyable meal. We will be back.
So good to be back at the French Table once again! My wife and I had a lovely birthday celebration lunch and the food as always was fabulous, coupled with a very personal service. Sarah, Eric and the team have worked hard to make the whole experience as normal as possible and we both felt very comfortable, with tables nicely spaced, temperature taken on arrival etc. Highly recommended, once again.
Excellent Wedding Anniversary lunch.
First class food, wine and service.
Well worth a visit.
Great food and service as usual
Generally the food was up to the usual high standard. My duck portion contained a few sinus which distracted from the enjoyment. The Melon starter was really excellent and the dessert tasty.
I had not been to the French Table for a while and had forgotten how good it is. The food is superb - quality ingredients cooked to perfection - and the waiting staff are well-trained and knowledgeable about the dishes on offer. This sort of quality does not come cheap - but we felt that our money had been well spent. As the chef is French it is a pity that they don't up the prices even more and offer "service compris" rather than adding an "optional" 12.5 % service charge.
Will definitely visit again. A modest location and size where presentation and taste is exquisite!
