“Friendly French owner” Laurent Brydniak oversees this “attractive” old boozer with separate dining room where the “menu changes regularly”. The set-up is fancier than one might expect for the genre, and the “very reasonable fixed-price menu at lunch” is a major draw.

You’ll find a “very warm welcome from the French owner, Laurent Brydniak, and very good food” at this little-changed 400-year-old boozer. In fact, the Gallic cuisine is “much finer than you might expect from a pub meal” – and there’s a “superb cheese trolley” to boot.
