oh yum! Must check out what is local for us up here and down in London... had a terrible food tasting on a recent trip to wine country in California, hoping this hasn't ruined my love for wine!

Will have to Babelfish the menu, so I can work out what all the dishes are. Might be worth trying one night. Shame it doesn't include a pudding as well!

I love Cafe Rouge (went to the one in Sheffield on Saturday), & will try to find time to go during September. The menu sounds scrumptious, my problem being I'd want to eat everything!

Let us know how you rate it Phil. I'm overdue a visit to Nottingham.

'baguette poulet' - why is is that chicken in a stick sounds so much fancier in French?

p.s. - why do you bother with word veri *and* blog moderation. Isn't one alone ok anymore? - just curious.

The food was nice. We had the chicken and green beans with a blue cheese sauce. It was good value and well presented but the waiter was a bit lacking in grace and said he couldn't speak any French (in a French style bistro) hmmm.
