Wine Club Dinner We held our annual wine club dinner here last night and had a fabulous evening. The staff were friendly and efficient, they couldn’t do enough for us. There were 25 of us, each choosing individually from an extensive menu and all was delivered efficiently. The food was delicious, from scallops to ham hock, confit duck to vegan risotto, every plate looked tempting and I didn’t hear any negative comments. Thank you Fraser and your staff for making it such a memorable evening - we shall be back.

Good quality food, but beware the hidden service charge My wife and I booked here and we're glad we chose it because the surroundings are nice and the food of a good quality. A little bit pricey, especially the wines, but a nice menu with different choices. We ordered our meals, and they appeared within 10 mins and the restaurant was packed, which does lead you to think that the food was pre prepared, especially when it wasn't quite hot enough, however I have to say the quality of my duck comfit was excellent, and my wife was very happy with her pheasant so both meals very enjoyable. Nowhere on the menu did it indicate a service charge, but when our bill arrived we were surprised to see 10% automatically added. We questioned this because if you are going to add a service charge you should clearly indicate it and not add by stealth. Although service was OK, wine wasn't poured and service was only basic. For us it added 7£, but for a table for four that would be £30 so that's excessive in my view. Our service charge was removed when we queried and we left a tip. Anyway, moan over with, food was good and we enjoyed our visit. No problems to recommend and we would returnEddie n Christine

Lunch with Friends We’ve not visited Le Bistro for a few years but we were not disappointed. The service was a bit slow but we don’t like to be rushed anyway, aside from this the staff were lovely and very helpful plus the food was fabulous.. couldn’t fault it! Definitely worth a visit!

Something a bit different Had a delicious lunch on Saturday afternoon. Seafood money bags and scallops followed by dressed crab and salmon en croute. Perfectly cooked and presented. Not the cheapest place in town but worth it for the quality of the dishes. Background music was pretty good as well. Worth a visit if you want to treat yourself.

Couples night out We visited this restaurant to celebrate a 60th birthday and first wedding anniversary. We received a very warm welcome as we arrived and the 2 waiting staff looking after us couldn’t have been more attentive and friendly, a factor that’s very important to me when rating an establishment. There’s a good selection of spirits, wine, beer/lager and the menu should suit most, if not all, tastes. The moneybags and scallops are 2 of my favourite starters and I can highly recommend both the beef bourguignon and sea bass as main courses, very delicious. The restaurant itself is very lively with a lovely atmosphere. If you haven’t been, it’s definitely worth a visit. The dining downstairs makes it a good choice for wheelchair uses or families with pushchairs.
