Sophie cooks French country style: dishes are simple, with the emphasis on fresh, top quality locally produced ingredients - as taught by her Basque mother.

The menu is delightfully straightforward: a set price for a two, three, four or five course meal. It is fantastic value, reflecting the overriding French food philosophy: top quality ingredients, well cooked and affordable. The 100% French wine list is selected and imported by Sophie's husband, Mark & concentrates on wines and vignerons personally known to them. Wines are also sold through Le Midi - Sophie's French Shop - alongside a range of foods, chocolates and other "foodie" items!

A new menu is decided every day, taking advantage of what's best, and in season, with fish being a particular speciality. All wines served are carefully selected to complement the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant reproduces the very best to be found in rural France.

Always enjoy a meal at Sophie's. Yesterday we took Norwegian friends (currently on holiday and living in the US) there. One had a milk allergy which we warned Sophie about. The meal was wonderful; simple, delicious, fresh - all the things we look for. The wine was lovely (Mark sources the wines himself) and they really enjoyed it. IT was a real pleasure. Thank you to the team!

What a brilliant find, not a massive menu but all things I liked. The owner explained that all the food was either local or from their home in France and the wine he personally chose from local vineyards in France and brought back to the restaurant in his LandRover. Food is all expertly cooked and simply presented. The menu isn't decided until the same day when they know what is available. I strongly recommend a visit you will not be dissappointed, a great experience!

We called in for lunch on the spur of the moment, and were very impressed. The food was simply cooked and of excellent quality and value for money. We will be going again this week and taking some friends with us. A relaxing place to take time over lunch and talk in a convivial atmosphere. The service was also very good. I particularly liked the vinaigrette dressing which Sophie makes herself from red wine, and her home made bread. I'm looking forward to enjoying a celebratory meal there later this year

This charming bistro is only open during the week for lunch, not for dinner,(dinner on Saturdays) but I would highly recommend it for simple, rustic and wholesome food, well cooked and with friendly service. The pricing is very good too, having just sampled their £14 for two courses lunch menu. Given the quality of the food and preparation, this is better than anywhere I know of in the vicinity for that money - and it is good to know that independent and individual eateries like this can survive!
