Just a good all round dining experience with a very decent wine list and always at least a couple of things on the menu I want to have. Bring back the duck cassoulet, my favourite.

We had a fun evening, and made the most of it with lockdown on the way. The food was good (esp the black pudding scotch egg starter) and the atmosphere was lively (like pre-Covid times). The waiting staff were lovely but seemed overwhelmed at times. Unfortunately, the social distancing/Covid precautions felt a bit limited compared to other restaurants I’ve been to recently and I think that would put me off going back for a while.

We came on the recommendation of a friend in Reading as I was visiting my son at University. We were impressed with the food, service and price. We definitely made the right choice! We'll be back!

Came to this lovely bar and bistro on Saturday night with my partner, was delighted by the friendly staff welcome and intimate candle-lit atmosphere. Had a starter & main and it was absolutely lovely. What an absolute hidden gem! Will definitely be recommending to friends! Thank you for a lovely evening.
