Rouge - Previously Rouge Restaurant Francais, Bar á Vins

This family-run French restaurant opened in July 2021, offering a small, seasonal menu with usually 2 or 3 dishes per course, and often a queue to get a booking. 

After closing for Covid in March 2020, they put a lot of time, thought and effort into using the premises in new ways.  The resulting café/boulangerie/restaurant eventually re-opened in May 2021, and offers a great range of pastries, quiches, salads and sandwiches, as well as meal-in-a-jar dinner options for takeaway.

In July 2023, they finally returned to their roots  and started operating as  restaurant open five evenings each week.

In 2011, after many months anticipation, Rouge was opened by the people behind the ever-popular Java.

More casual French restaurant than cafe, with a simple, effective menu:  mains options include one steak, one fish and one vegetarian option each day..  There is a fantastic wine list - spot the giant wine-bottle in the window.   The fit-out includes leather couches and a grand piano.   Possibly ok for a  a casual daytime coffee, but don't expect a seat at dinnertime without a reservation.   Food is served until mid-night, seven days.
