Summary

Malcolm John’s “off-the-beaten-track” Gallic classic by Acton Green, is known for its “delicious” bistro fare and “intimate” ambience; its ratings suffered this year though, with quite a number of reports of the “perhaps-they-were-having-a-bad-day” variety.

Summary

“All the French classics” are realised to a “perfectly sound” standard at Malcolm John’s “professional but laid-back” bistro, opposite Acton Green; it has the knack of “making a series of small surprises into a very satisfactory all-round experience”.

Summary

“A classic, traditional establishment”, which wouldn’t look out of place in ‘la France profonde’, but which seems quite a find opposite Acton Green; critics can find the fare a touch “unexciting”, though, and the interior is “closely packed”.
