Consistently good food presented very nicely. Service was top class and food choice covers all palates. I feel that the lighting could be a little less subdued, we all had difficulty reading the menu.

Fabulous food and fabulous service. However, the owner has some crazy ideas on lighting. One cannot read the menus or even see the food at night. Nonsensical.

You just cannot fault this restaurant. The food is excellent, always hot and delicious. The service is second to none. We look forward to our weekly visit to this restaurant. Their Neighbourhood Menu is great and offers a great selection to suit everyone. Certainly worth a visit. I would give it 10/10 everytime! Thanks Bijou

Super Bank holiday lunch. We selected from the set menu. We found there was a good range and both meals were excellent.

This is a great Neighbourhood restaurant near to us. The food is always top class with great flavour combinations. We were recommended a lovely glass of red to accompany our meal. The only downside was a large noisy table arrived which meant it was hard to chat as my husband doesn’t hear well well in this environment but other than that a great meal and experience as always.

A very good meal but service was on the slow side. When the manager was made aware of this he immediately sprung into action. First apologising and then providing coffee and complimentary drinks which was excessive but well received

Unfortunately while the waitstaff wearing uniforms were lovely, a gentleman in a pink shirt who greeted us at the entrance and took our orders was abrupt and less than friendly. The food was fine, but not fantastic. Perhaps we didn’t choose well. All in all I’m disappointed but glad we tried it out first as I had intended to book the venue for a christening.

Lovely Maître D from Munster. Welcoming ambience.
Three courses is almost too much. Parking can be an issue.

Quite an unassuming Bistro, but fabulous food and great service. Prices are very reasonable for the excellent quality. Went with work and ideal for meetings. It seems always busy.

Celebrated a famiky birthday and avsiked of the Neighbourhood Menu.
Food was fantastic but it was very busy on a Friday evening and we had an hour wait between starter and main course.
It was worth the wait and we didnt have to vacate by 8.15 as on we site.
Would definitely return for another nite out. Staff were busy all nite and very pleasant.

We were brought to a table for 2 , although we had booked a table for 4 . We were then brought to a table beside the kitchen which we declined , and then got a mediocre table .

We have been customers of The Bijou for may years but had been less frequent visitors until recently. We visited twice in the past 10 days and we delighted with the experience on both occasions. The food was first class and we have discovered a top class well priced Italian red wine. We were well looked after by Alice who could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Well done to all, keep up the great work and wishing you continued success on providing a great service to the local community.

The service was excellent. We had two children under the age of 5 with us. The welcome and friendliness of the restaurant staff was excellent. They cleaned the children’s food bowls which we had brought ourselves and made sure the children were fed first.
The food itself was excellent.
We have eaten in Bijou as a family on many occasions and it remains our favourite venue

We were seated near a family with two young children (one an infant). At one point the child started to cough and choke and the father seemed to be put out rather than concerned for his child. Certainly my wife was concerned.
Some time later, when the family were leaving, the father gave a hand written note to my wife which complained about her looking across at him and his child. It was a spiteful note and a spiteful act by a small minded man.
His act certainly changed the tone of the evening for us.

Food quality and service from Beatrice was outstanding. Wonderful variety of starters and main courses and with a large table of diners most dishes were selected and the feedback from everyone was that the food was of an exceptional quality and service was excellent. Many thanks

Delicious menu, friendly yet professional waiting staff who made a friend's birthday special. Mussels were superb starter. Cod with shellfish was excellent and trout was tasty. Honey cake with figs was an unusual dessert that we both enjoyed but mightn't repeat. Only downside was that I had difficulty hearing as there was a large vociferous group sitting behind me. Perhaps my hearing is in decline!

100% reliable. Great food especially the melt in you mouth beef. Yum. Fish too beautifully cooked and generous portions of onion rings and veg. Lovely service and great atmosphere. Dessert another delight even if I only had a spoonful of my companion’s. We’ll be back in the near future.defo.
