A “perfect, archetypally French restaurant, with all the classical touches, from the staff to the ambiance” – Greg Bureau’s bistro is “as fun as it is authentic”. “After several visits, it’s still a surprise to find a place with such a French feel in the heart of a Northumbrian town!”.

"Very good French food although not without fault. My French onion soup was a little short of cheese and baguettes rather than roles would have been preferable, also a cold Creme brulee. However the overall quality was good and the experience enjoyable"

"One of our favourite French restaurants which we've now visited on many occasions since I discovered it years ago on a Hadrian's Wall holiday - and despite the fact that it's nearly 180 miles from our home in Nottingham. This was our first visit since before Covid-19 and we found that they have taken advantage of the closure to revamp and refresh the ground floor (and perhaps more?). A very professional ambience, understated but unmistakeable French themes, and as usual briskly efficient and unobtrusive service - and once again, on a midweek night, we found it busy with diverse groups and couples. As usual, first class cooking at very reasonable prices, and once again we took advantage of the prix fixe "early bird" menu which was available till 9 pm. We had intended to eat off the a la carte menu but the fixe was too appealing - note to self that we MUST be more ambitious next time, can't come too soon."
