Le Blaireau Reviews
We ate twice in Le Blaireau and would not hesitate to eat there again. A wide range of choice of food & (french) wine, and first class service in an authentic French atmosphere.
The food here was excellent, so good when I asked about the specials the manager said he was out that morning picking ingredients fresh. I would definitely come back here- the service was also very good and the staff were very nice and polite.

"I cannot express enough just how amazing our experience was at Le Blaireau. The staff are warm, welcoming and funny. The food was DIVINE! The whole atmosphere to the restaurant itself is amazing! I really felt as if I was abroad! The whole décor and style is fantastic! The food was just mouth watering. It managed to shut a group of girls up because everyone was enjoying it so much. I experienced the best bread and butter I have ever tasted! I cannot wait to return!"

"As soon as we walked in we felt like we had set foot back in Paris! The smells were amazing and the character of the place.. we really felt like we were back in France. O and the food! Really was great! I had the French onion soup and the mister had duck rilette. Both were lovely and full of flavour. We both then had the sirloin steaks for main - these were perfrxt and melt in your mouth! For dessert I had the chocolate mouse with salted caramel ice cream and he had 5 different scoops of ice cream.. cause he really couldn't choose! Staff were brilliant, friendly and helpful! Highly recommend over and over!"

"A Saturday evening was well spent at Le Blaireau. The atmosphere was pleasantly buzzing and the food was really very good. Hearty portions were displayed appetisingly on the plate. Local lamb was served pink and delicious and the confit of duck was as tender and tasty as you could wish. Only one dessert was managed and this was the apple tarte tatin which had thick slices of caramelised apple on light crispy pastry. Ice cream is local and good. The service was friendly and attentive. Book early especially for weekends!"

"Le Blaireau never fails to delight. The French themed decor puts a smile on my face every time. The food is consistently delicious but unfussy."
