Adam Reid at The French is a collaboration in more than name alone, with Adam making his stamp on every aspect of the dining experience, from the new flexible menus, more relaxed accessible atmosphere and his pièce de résistance – the chef’s counter.

The menu offers modern British food that delivers consistently excellent flavours, using the best seasonal produce available.

When it comes to dining at The French, there are more options than ever before, from the signature six and nine course menus, to the new four course and small plate menus made up of fewer dishes for a speedier service.
