    Ambience very nice, large table a bit noisy but they were celebrating. The portions were a bit small but to be honest we went there because we knew it would have a nice safe atmosphere surrounded by like minded people

    The only disappointing element was the vegetarian main. We had tomato provencale which was a tomato in tomato sauce stuffed with more tomatoes and pepper. Considering the lovely meals my non vegetarian colleagues had, this seemed a bit naff and not good value. The other courses were good.

    It was quite good - service was good and food reasonable value. Very few people dining so lacked atmosphere

    Classy restrained decor combined with a quiet efficiently run bistro. We both enjoyed the smoked salmon starter and moules marieniere main course. Generous portions and very good service.
