Thoroughly enjoyed our meal - only downside was the poor selection of vegetables with the chicken. Where was the fabulous cauliflower cheese? I would at least have expected something better than cabbage!!

Wonderful lunch time meal. I have never had a poor meal at this restaurant. A well presented and beautifully cooked menu. The only place in mid Herts to serve genuine French cuisine. Well done, I shall now have to go on diet for a week!

Been here four times in last two years and first time food was superb and this last time it really wasn’t very good. Notcrefined at all and tasteless. We were only table apart from one table of two all evening so very lacking in atmosphere for a Friday night but service was good and some of group enjoyed food

Our Christmas dinner for a party of 6 was greatly enjoyed by all. One small criticism - the quality of the crackers did not match up to the rest of the occasion. We shall probably return next Christmas.My wife was in heaven as she didn't have to prepare or clear up afterwards.

Service was excellent. One of our party was a no-show and another didn't eat. The bar was fully booked and they had to turn people away. Despite this, they were charming to us. I'll be back.

My husband and I dined here on Friday last week. It was excellent! We particularly enjoyed the steak with delicious sauce. I have only marked down a little on the value as the drinks are very expensive, especially the beer. Best wishes, Anne Peacock
