“Fine dining is taken to another level” at this “magical”, “romantic” Roux family venue “on the banks of the river in Bray”, where the Classic French cuisine is so “impeccably prepared”, it’s been voted No. 1 for Food in the London area; a “flawless experience” – complemented by “excellent” wines and “immaculate service” – it’s “more than worth it”
