A lovely meal with friendly staff. The atmosphere could have been better if there had been more people in the restaurant.
Les Bouviers offers traditional elegant service with inventive French cuisine in a homely country setting. A truly pleasurable dining experience for Valentines day and we shall return to sample the full a la carte next time.
As usual 5 star service and quality. The festive afternoon tea is delicious with the best mulled wine I’ve ever tasted. Mincemeat parcels and cinnamon scones still warm from the oven. Thank you Kate, James and your team. Merry Christmas xx
