The French Kitchen

We’re great enthusiasts of classic French brasserie cuisine; the perfect blend of hearty food and convivial company in a relaxed setting. In fact, we love it so much that we run our own boutique brasserie, La Petite Bouchée. However, since we’re based in the UK, we can’t reach everybody...
