We couldn't get in for dinner so we came for lunch; the positive reviews were well justified.

There is a simple set menu with three + choices for each course and pricing for 1, 2 or 3 courses. We each had pea soup with chive and horseradish cream - perfect consistency and flavour.

I had the grilled mackerel starter as a main with celeri remoulade and tried my son's bavette and wife's wild mushroom risotto - all were delicious. Each was relatively simple but needs perfect execution which was achieved.

Good lemon posset and chocolate stout cake for pudding.

Good shortish wine list - we enjoyed the white Rioja.

The service (by the owner) was very charming and efficient.

Overall, in a week of eating out for lunch and dinner in the area, this was the best. The menu is distinctively different and on a different level. Many people have discovered this so you do need to book well in advance.

Would definitely go back and recommend.

A beautiful August morning so we sat outside in the little garden and enjoyed a super breakfast. All cooked to order and absolutely fab. All had full English , brilliant. Only slight concern was that the flat white coffees were on the cool side.
Apart from that not a single fault and will def return

Further to my previous review we returned for my husband's birthday dinner with a friend. We were all blown away by the quality, presentation and flavours of the meals we chose. This bistro is a real find, very convenient for us with a great atmosphere and friendly staff.
Our friend has since been back for breakfast and we will certainly return. Thank you for a memorable evening
