Had a wonderful time with friends for a 40 year reunion. Superb waiting staff recognised how special the day was to us. Superb cuisine and innovative menus. We stayed about four hours and hope we didn’t outstay our welcome. Will be back

Thanks for a fabulous lunch. Had the tasting menu and the restaurant kindly changed the pork for beef on our request. Waiting staff were very professional and the food was great. Will absolutely visit again

Wonderful food, presented in a very contemporary style. Often food doesn't live up to it's styling, this did in leaps and bounds. Excellent wine pairing with the tasting menu. Knowledgeable staff.

It’s been a while since we visited The French Table and I’m pleased to say it is still as wonderful as ever. The staff are courteous and attentive without being intrusive. There is always such a warm welcome. The menu, as always, was simple yet diverse in its options. Every plate of food that passed us looked wonderful. Our meal was delicious as was the wine recommended by our waitress, perfectly matched red to suit my fish and my husband’s beef. We have been fortunate to eat in some amazing restaurants and I have to say for us, The French Table never fails to disappoint where others might and is definitely a contender as our favourite restaurant. Would highly recommend. We will hopefully be returning very soon.

Lunchtime tasting menu was very intricate and well presented - 6 courses for £30! The bread is worth a visit on its own. Wines (not on the tasting menu) are a bit pricey but that is the UK.

We first went to the French Table shortly after it first opened and have been many times since then. Although we no longer live in the area we go here now for special occasions. It has never disappointed. I had the pork belly as my main course and it was the best pork belly I've ever tasted. The apricot souffle was just perfection - light as a cloud.

Impressed with the attention to detail for our anniversary dinner - personalised note on the menu, heart confetti and a message in chocolate on our desserts. Only downside is that the tables for two are very close together so not very intimate, especially when the two friends catching up on the table next to us were quite loud and talking about risqué topics!

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 !
