Food was delicious although service was a little slow. It was a Sunday afternoon so it was quiet as would be expected. Overall very good and would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back

We were a bit disappointed actually. Myself and my husband had only been to the restaurant a month before the visit yesterday and there was quite a difference. We have always been given lovely bread before and a great choice of vegetables. However this time there was no bread and no green vegetables. We could see that other tables had green veg so we asked why we hadn’t been offered either bread or the missing veg and were told that bread was available but chargeable and that we had to request the green vegetables. There was no instruction on the menu to indicate this??? We had also reserved our table for 2:15 but were advised that the previous guests hadn’t finished yet and would we mind a delay-this wasn’t a problem but the right hand side of the restaurant was completely empty so we were puzzled at being told of the delay when half the restaurant was empty? We have been regular visitors to the bistro for Sunday lunch and never had a problem but it was sad yesterday as we had invited friends to dine with us as it was my husbands birthday, the food we had was delicious but a bit of a thumbs down 👎 ref the points raised.

I marked atmosphere down as some of the other diners were quite raucous. Value for money was very good as we used a Groupon voucher. Service was very good and staff were very polite and helpful. Food quality was excellent as always.

Think the Groupon deal has taken away the restaurants exclusivity and attention to detail ..... the service was terrible ..... and therefore the 10% service charge was not deserved in my opinion .... not a great experience this time .....
