I went to this restaurant for the third time last saturday (treat for grandaughter) thought i would give them another chance. hell no, will NOT be going back. rude staff that's when they can be bothered to come to the table. service charge is a joke what service, the creme brulee was like scrambled egg, gave it back, would not take it off the bill.

I recently had very nice lunch at this restaurant and will go back there, no doubt. Service could be better; atmosphere is the quiet type (mid-week examples), unless you like quiet spaces (sometimes).

I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times in the last three years, both at lunch and in the evenings. On every occasion the French bistro style menu has been excellent and the choice great. The food served has been consistently good on all occasions over the years and service usually decent.

I am however sad to report that I will never be dining at Le Chardon again after my experience last Saturday. A regular user of GroupOn, I bought a voucher for Le Chardon giving me money off the final bill. What I didn't buy however was to be argued with at the end of my meal by an overly officious and aggressive restaurant manager. From nowhere my boyfriend and I were accused incorrectly of ignoring the Ts&Cs of the voucher and when we tried to explain the situation we were argued with further and continuously talked over. Despite speaking camly and quietly the manager responded to us with a raised voice more than once. Quite an amazing experience to have the proprietor of a restaurant talk to you like you'd just stolen from them and refuse to back down or apologise even when confronted with Ts&Cs of a voucher. Needless to say it ruined what was a lovely evening and I urge anyone planning a relaxing dinner to avoid this place like the plague.

As the old saying goes.....The customer is always right, except when you're the Manager of Le Chardon.....

I think these review are harsh and pretentious. We've just had a lovely meal with great food and fun service. They were also lovely to my mum who felt poorly. People seem v critical and can't get into French joie de vivre and all that! And I love the decor.

Last night used a voucher for £29 and spent an additional £50 on wine, supplements and sundries. Oh dear oh dear. The food took ages and when it arrived it was a disappointment. The French onion soup was watered down to the point of tasting of warm water and the Lemon sole was not so fresh. My daughter had the Mussels as a main which was brought a tiny bowl of not more than 15 and they (as few as they were) were not so good. Au revoir Le Chardon. When you stop caring, it will take more than vouchers to entice customers.

I booked a Woucher deal for this restaurant for £29 for 3 courses plus a glass of Champagne for 2, then I read the reviews on here and was expecting something of a Faulty Towers experience. Not a bit of it! There were 2 people serving on the Wed night we went, arriving for 7.30. Restaurant about one third full but filling up during the night. The service was quick and polite and the food arrived quickly. The only thing I wasn't expecting was that we had to order the dessert at the same time as the other two courses, but that was no problem. All of the food was lovely. We had the fish cake, baked brie, Steak and frites, calves liver, Apple tart and Tart au citron. It was all very nice indeed. The restaurant seemed to have quite a few regulars in it as they were taking a longer time over their evening with more wine! We were in and out quite promptly. Well worth the money we paid, and my stars are based on the Woucher deal and menu we had.
