Exceptional food and service. The staff allowed you to take your time to enjoy the experience of fine dining but were attentive when required. Although the menu some could say was limited what was available was suitable for all tastes and allowed the chefs to concentrate their undoubted skills in producing meals of exceptional quality. I would recommend this fine restaurant for a special occasion.

What an absolute delight.
The service was lovely and the food exceptional. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings and it was awesome.
The portion sizes were great. We pondered as to whether to add the cheese course a d we are glad we did not.
Also the little touches of happy birthday on the menu a day the table decorations were delightful.
We will return again
THANKYOU

Another lovely meal, fantastic food, wonderful service from lovely staff. However if I was being picky
(which I am clearly), we were disappointed there was a baby at a table quite near us which although in general was pretty well behaved, however it did have a couple of crying moments and that's not really what you want in a restaurant out to celebrate your wedding anniversary.

Used to be able to write that this was a neighbourhood gem - but The French Table’s fame has rightly spread. The only problem you will have is getting a table. Excellent food, beautifully presented, with a front of house team who understand hospitality.

Our only concern was that the main specials were not mentioned/offered.

We overheard someone ordering beef which is what we have preferred but could not see on the menu. It was not until new diners sat next to us were offered rump steak as a special that we realised too late.

Spacing between the tables for 2 was quite intrusive and would prefer a round table by the window next time

Great dining experience for a BIG birthday - staff are lovely, really attentive and the food was absolutely delicious (from the taster menu). We enjoyed flavours we would never have imagined would go together. The tables feel a little too cosily close to dining neighbours although we didn't feel too overheard, but it would be nice to feel just a bit more private when having such an awesome meal.

Absolutely brilliant. We are local to the restaurant but have not been before. We went for our 10th anniversary. My wife is vegan and they catered to her tastes. The food was excellent. The service from the staff was perfect - not too much but just enough. Overall an excellent experience and I would definitely recommend them.
