If you have a terrible memory as I do, it's easy to forget how good a restaurant is if you've not eaten there for well over a year. As it is with The French. On this occasion we went for lunch and the £50 for 3 courses deal they have on (with a few extras). This represents excellent value for money for a restaurant of this quality. We were impressed yet again by the food which is even better than I remember it. The service too is always on point. We are treated more like returning members of the family by the whole team here especially manager Kamilla (effortless charm and ultra efficiency personified).
