Chez Lindsay specialises in French cooking from the Brittany region. Seafood and pancakes, "the twin glories of Breton cooking" feature prominently on the menu and there is also a comprehensive selection of starters, salads, fish and meat dishes all typical of the region. The "galettes" (buckwheat pancakes) are cooked to order on a flat griddle and served with your choice of fillings. They are made in the traditional way by a team of Breton crêpiers. Buckwheat is rich in vitamins and minerals and has a distinctive nutty taste. For those allergic to gluten - it is gluten free! The Bretons drink cider with their galettes and Chez Lindsay imports some special ciders from the region. They are very different from most English ciders, deliciously refreshing and low in alcohol. In true Breton style, ciders are served in cups or "bolées". The menu is designed to suit all occasions - a relaxed 3 course dinner or a quick brunch, lunch or supper. There is a good wine list designed to complement the selection of starters, salads, fish and meat with a particular emphasis on the Loire Valley.

Never had a bad meal here. We were early for our booking but that was not a problem. Lovely atmosphere and food always good, especially the Breton pancakes.

Great place to enjoy good French cuisine with reasonably priced wines. The first mouthful of my starter Boudin Noir and I was back in France, truly the best I’ve tasted here. The food tends towards rustic and is all the better for it combined with Gallic charm I will certainly be recommending a visit.

Since leaving work in Richmond over a decade ago, I had not returned to Chez Lindsay. In the past I had visited the restaurant on numerous occasions. My son and his girlfriend were running in the Richmond Half Marathon so we arranged to meet for lunch afterwards. Chez Lindsay was everything I hoped for and did not let us down. The welcome was friendly and it was great to see Lindsay herself looking good and on fine form. Our party of eight all enjoyed the well cooked and classically French food. I will certainly be returning in the near future.

This was our first visit to Chez Lindsay and we were very impressed by the quality of the food and service. We had booked a table for 18.30 and our friends were some 30 mins late but no pressure was placed upon ourselves to order quickly once they arrived. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely visit again.
