Stone steps lead down to this intimate basement bistro where red lamps fringed with tassels, a wood-burning stove, and a little bar with a ceiling papered with French icons like the Eiffel Tower are the backdrop for classic French dishes. The menu changes frequently; there could be baked Camembert, ham hock terrine, a warm goat's cheese salad, or navarin of lamb, which you can accompany with a glass or two from the carefully selected wine list. There's a sheltered courtyard
for warm days and a two-course lunch for £10.
