About Us


The French Connection is a traditional, French café bistro. We serve individually prepared, fresh, French-style dishes, using high quality ingredients. This intimate, classic café bistro offers vibrant breakfast and lunch dining and transforms into a romantic and boutique restaurant for full à la carte evening dining.

Our menus' change regularly to reflect the seasonal availability of produce and for a special experience we offer occasional themed evenings, focussing on regional dishes from all corners of France. Our head chef has over 24 years’ experience here in our own kitchens and will cook each dish with attention to detail in accordance with the highest traditions of French Cuisine.

from humble beginnings

Our origins

The French Delicatessen, situated at 1 Coventry Street was originally opened in 1981 by Mr and Mrs Weston. In 1986 they expanded into next door at No3 and established the French Connection Bistro.

In 2000 the Westons retired and passed the baton to their son Howard to steward the French Deli and ownership of the Bistro was passed to Mr and Mrs Hardwicke-Garner. Both continued to keep their respective good names and culinary reputations and continued to innovate and move with the times.

In 2017 ownership of the French Deli passed, for only the third time in its 36 year history, to Ross McElligott, who then purchased the Bistro in 2018. This move saw both Deli and Bistro under one roof once again. These independently owned jewels of Stourbridge gastronomy continue to produce delicious and elegant French food for customers from far and wide.

So please come and join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, glass of wine, olives, selection of cheeses, lunchtime takeaway... all, of course, with a little French twist!
