“Very enjoyable French food in a convivial atmosphere” ensures the continued high success of Chris Tabbitt (ex-of London haunt Bibendum) and Sarah Olivier’s modern European, est. 2016 and named after their first child. It’s a “comfortable and not showy” sort of place with “casual” service, where no one doubts the “very proficient” cooking (“not cheap, but definitely felt good value for the overall meal”).

"Second time here. Very comfortable, dependable, great quality. Lovely wood pigeon with celeriac remoulade, a beetroot based sauce and walnuts. Perfectly executed Onglet Steak and pommes frites, very well priced at £21. Even better value 500ml carafe of Languedoc merlot at £13.50. V personable service. Busy even on a Monday night in early December"
