Harden's survey result
A cosy French bistro, incorporating a cellar bar and a conservatory; reviews are positive if often qualified (“fully priced”, “excellent but a bit heavy”), and this remains one of the few decent non-chain options in this underserved town.
“The food has never been a disappointment in the 16 years I’ve been going” – this “lovely” bar/restaurant “just keeps on producing really good food”. And with its regular jazz, you can enjoy “some of the best music on the South Coast” too.
