Friendly service, genuine French cooking. The set lunch is a real bargain. I had leeks with a poached egg and lentil and aubergine casserole both of which were excellent. Really tasty. It was a bit cold to sit in the courtyard, but it looked lovely.

Sitting outside on a balmy evening with five sumptuous courses with matching wines from the Gasgony region - what could be better? The 7-hour slow cooked lamb was the star of the show but the terrine, cheese and boozy pudding were also outstanding. Really nice...More
