We were seven people gathered for a company Christmas dinner. The menu was interesting and it had some exotic dishes I had never before encountered. For example, parsnip soup. I love parsnip and this one did not disappoint. For the main course I ordered the...More

An authentic French atmosphere and the Head Chef, Gerard is very hands on and was happy to discuss the excellent wine menu and to serve us with our choice. Delicious food with something to suit most tastes (I am vegetarian).
