None of the staff were wearing face masks. The chef was also not wearing face masks. When asked, they refused to put them on. Unsafe venue in light of COVID.

The Restaurant is very sweet and cosy but unfortunately every dish was bland and tasteless. Very expensive although I would expect that in this location but the price didn’t reflect the food we ate. I had tastier food in a local pub a few days before! Also although I realise it’s a French restaurant the waitress couldn’t speak English at all.

I've had some variable experiences here of late, but everything was excellent on this occasion: really quite memorable food, and the usual first-class service. And they didn't drive us out after everyone else had gone. So we'll be back!
