Quality food at a reasonable price

My wife and I have visited this homely French style bistro many times over the years and have never been dissapointed. As usual the food was excellent as was the service. We both chose a simple cold meat salad for a starter which was bursting with freshness and very tasty. I had the salmon wrapped in cod for a main my wife chose the artichoke casserole. Both dishes were served with mediterranean vegatables and gorgeous dauphinoise potatoes. My wife’s meal was finished off with lemon tart served with a lovely homemade rosemary ice cream, I went for the Mont Blanc, a cherry sponge topped with ice cream and fresh egg meringue, one of the best desserts I have tasted! All in all a great night, we will visit again soon.


Lovely food

I visited here on a Saturday lunch time with a table of 10. The food was really nice. We chose off the set menu which was £9.95 for 2 courses. I had pate to start and mushroom ravioli, both were excellent. The service was good but they weren’t too pushed. To sum it up we had a nice lunch which was reasonably priced.


French at it’s best

Booked for a 21st birthday it was a struggle to book a table because they are so busy……we had 1st sitting and within 1/2hr it was virtually packed. The food was a little above spectacular but do beware , you only get what you pay for. As with any decent establishment service was friendly and efficient. A must for anyone looking for something out of the ordinary. Having been to France many times this restaurant brought back many memories and even looks like a French bar and restaurant. Would easily give the best restaurants in France a run for their money.


Another gret evening here

Have eaten here several times and each time we have had a wonderful meal and a very pleasant evening.

This time we took a couple of friends ( who are not local to the area and had never been before) and our 10 year old son. They had never been before and are quite hard to please but they were both full of compliments about it. Our son is also quite fussy and a very plain eater. The host was brilliant with him and made him a delicious grilled chicken with French fries which he promptly finished off.

It was Burns night and they brought out little crostini win haggis topping which was a nice touch.

The service was so friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. We all left feeling full and satisfied.

We definitely plan to go more often.


A lovely place to go

Lovely meal, great staff, traditional French decor. Not overpriced. It’s good to know that there’s a lovely little place that’s local. May they continue to prosper!


Always excellent

I love this place…I’ve been going there for years and its consistently excellent.
Much recommended for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.


A real gem

Excellent food.

Service was attentive but not intrusive or false.

Great atmosphere.

The beef bourgionon was exceptional. The house coffee was of a very high standard- very tasty. The final bill was reasonable.

Overall a genuine restuarant providing great food and friendly service. Would recommend to friends and family without hesitation.

(In hindsight, this was one of the best restuarants I have been to in the West Midlands in the past 10 years)


Wonderful restaurant

Everything about French Conenction is fab. The food is great, the service is friendly and efficient, it’s well priced and just a lovely charming place to spend an evening. It also has the best french fries ever!! Good enough to eat with any main course…which I do, every time!
They also do amazing catering for private events, parties, functions etc…. They catered for a small family party for me and the help and advice in choosing the dishes was great and the actual food and service on the day was brilliant and so well priced.
I can’t recommend French Connection enough!!


So good, I don’t really want to tell you about it! 🙂

The French Connection is a little piece of heaven, with superb food combined with excellent customer service. My wife and I have been going there once a week for several years and their high standards never waiver. As far as I can tell, it’s a family owned business and the owners and the staff have perfected the art of combining genuine friendliness with true professionalism. Over time, we now view them all as genuine friends and always look forward to our visit. We urge you to try out the French Connection, enjoy the food, relax a little and get to know the staff, they are just fantastic.


Favourite local

Always a pleasure to visit this little gem. Food excellent especially the boeuf bourguignon. Service very personal and good choice of traditional French fayre.
