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.

As always a visit to Chez Lindsay was a delight. This is a class act, a warm welcome, a professional and very friendly team, great food and wine and a lovely atmosphere. It is also great value. We had a great dinner, my companion had rump of lamb and pronounced it excellent, I had a great combination of prawns and monkfish which was sublime. Of course we could have stopped there, but who can resist the crepes. Certainly not us. We left very contentedly and looking forward to the next visit.

Chez Lindsay never fails to please with warm and very professional service from Lindsay herself and Laurent who make you feel so welcome. The menu is full of high-quality French dishes with wonderful soups and galettes. A little gem.

As usual we all had a delightful lunch at Chez Lindsay earlier this week.. I've asked my friends for comments on their food choices and they said the Black Pudding and Duck Breast were absolutely wonderful, the soup and the pate really good as always. Eeveryone found the choice of fish just right and very tasty. The service was impeccable from our friendly French waiter who makes us feel very welcome. My friends always ask to be taken to your restaurant whenever they come to visit and look forward to the treat. We shall see you again.
