    Great service. Opulent location. 9 course taster menu was uniformly excellent. Best dish was between the almond poached cod and the tater ‘ash. The Cumbrian red deer was the least favourite. The easy peeler dessert was stunning in taste and presentation.

    There's only one way to describe the food, wine or whole experience, amazing! The music was a nice unexpected surprise, it really created the right ambiance at the chefs counter. Thoroughly recommended.

    Adam Reid at the French provided an excellent dining experience to catch up with an old friend. Having looked for to the prospect of dining at the French for several years, neither of us were disappointed. Outstanding cuisine with a well thought out flight of wines to match. Good honest flavours with a hint of northern soul. Get in quick before the restaurant gets starred!

    Totally fabulous experience, food was amazing, thought provoking, challenging and full of flavour. The ambiance and service were superb, enjoyable, informative and friendly.

    The restaurant is small and therefore more intimate than I had expected. The food was very good (not 'out of this world' good but very acceptable). The wines chosen for each course were interesting and nicely varied but also complimentary to the food. The waiting staff, especially the wine waiter, were excellent and provided a useful and interesting commentary to the meal without becoming intrusive. The cod was superb and the ginger & cream dessert was a very nice finale. It was a lovely evening n very pleasant surroundings.
