The Bouchon Restaurant in Hexham serves delicious french style food. The waiters are attentive without being over powering. The menu is varied with something for all tastes. An excellent evening out.

Stylish place. Lovely pate to start. Dry crispy duck and tasteless, pale duck fat chips. Over priced £5.50 for 2 small scoops of ice cream. Expected better..

Amazing little French restaurant tucked away in a side street in Hexham. Owned and run by French people who deliver a menu and service of the highest standard at a very reasonable price. Totally recommend as a fine dining experience.

I don't know for sure, but the tables on the front of the restaurant are on a public footpath, so I don't see how they could stop you sitting down with a dog. Sorry I can't help further.
