A Francophile’s dream, Garçon is decked out in authentic brasserie style (think bistro chairs, banquettes, wall lights & big mirrors) & has French staff to match. The menu follows suit, offering traditional Gallic fare with minimal fuss. From midday through to 5pm this might include croque monsieur, omelettes & oysters, backed-up by other all-day treats including traditional tartiflettes & moules marinière. The full carte is available at lunchtime & in the evening, with starters of snails in garlic butter or pan-fried foie gras with figs & brioche giving way to tournedos Rossini with French fries, sole meunière with new potatoes, or beetroot & goats’ cheese tart with rocket & walnut salad. As you might expect, there’s likely to be tarte Tatin or crème brûlée for afters. Set menus offer excellent value, from £12.95/15.95 for two/three courses.
