About French Connection Bistro
Welcome to the French Connection Bistro.
Established in 1986, The French Connection is a traditional, French café bistro. We serve individually prepared, fresh, French-style dishes, using high quality ingredients. This intimate, classic café bistro offers vibrant breakfast, lunch dining and transforms into a romantic, boutique, restaurant for full à la carte evening dining. Our menus change regularly to reflect the seasonal availability of produce and for a special experience we offer occasional themed evenings, focussing on regional dishes from all corners of France. Our head chef has over 24 years’ experience here in our own kitchen and will cook each dish with attention to detail in accordance with the highest traditions of French Cuisine.
Unlike most traditional French restaurants, we offer an excellent selection in vegetarian dishes and can cater for all dietary requirements. In complete harmony with our French counterparts we offer a great flexibility in child portions, to enable families to eat together.
First time here since Chris and Colette left. Was fixing to not like it, BUT loved it. I like the paired back interior, it did feel French bistro, and loved that they have created a new bar area. Would definitely call in for a drink and a bite in this area. The menu was paired down also, but was well thought out and different to the usual “trendy” menu’s that you see everywhere. The food was fresh, well cooked and well presented. I had the fillet steak in a cherry and port sauce. It was the best steak I had for quite a while, and was medium rare to perfection. Nice small wine list, chose a great bottle of St Emillion. Two staff in the dining room were excellent. Attentive and very chatty, knew what they were doing and the food arrived bang on time. Liked it so much I booked a table for five this Saturday. Without doubt the best place to eat in Stourbridge.
Lovely new decor. Superb food as always.
Lovely breakfast in a lovely setting.
Fabulous food and atmosphere at the French Connection. It is s form favourite of ours and never fails to deliver tasty food and a personal service.

Wondet food and service as always. A gem of Stourbridge.
One of my favorite places
Food delicious as always, only lacking the usual dressing and finesse on the salad garnish.
Some live music? Ie Spanish night. Man playing guitar would have been nice, and lady flamanco dancing. Etc...
Very pleasant lunchtime visit. Service was prompt but not rushed. Food was good-very good choice of dishes for a lunchtime menu. Restauant looks as though it has been brightened up a bit since last visit.
The food and service were good. The fixed price menu offers good value for money.
We had a brilliant evening- thank you so much

We had a great evening
Well I haven’t had customer service like it in a long time! It’s like walking into a hug! What an incredible delight. So authentic. Kara and Cath were knowledgable, professional,accomodating and so very lovely. We were late, and actually arrived 10 mins after kitchen closes. But chef honoured our reservation and prepared some delicious dishes Portions were very generous from the rouge menu. Food was very good. Had a really lovely evening. My daughter left wanting to work there! Thankyou I will be back very soon
Faultless food and service.
Great experience as always - about my 5th visit. Food was great. A clear cut above any chain or other local restaurant quality wise. A must visit if you're local to the area.
Really lovely food,very relaxed atmosphere and great value for money, definatly go again
