“GOOD FOOD IS THE FOUNDATION OF GENUINE HAPPINESS”
Welcome to La Petite Bouchée, We started life in our four-seater restaurant housed in the back of our 1971 Citroen HY Camper Van in leafy South East London. We were literally the smallest French Brasserie in the UK.
Since launching in August 2014 we've built a fantastic, well respected brand which has not only captured the hearts of diners it has also enabled us to win several prestigious awards including the Time Out #LoveLondonAwards for best restaurant in Sydenham, SE26 and since relocating to beautiful rural WITHERIDGE in North Devon , we've scooped a much coveted GOLD AWARD in the Taste of The West Awards in the best restaurant category, Been a FINALIST in the Devon Life Food & Drink Awards 2017 and RUNNER-UP in the 2017 Food & Drink Devon Awards for BEST BISTRO IN DEVON
In 2018 we scooped another Taste of The West Gold Award 2017/18 and Best European Restaurant Award - Devon together with Best Customer Service from LUXE LIFE
Our name translated literally means the ‘small mouthful’ but there is nothing small about La Petite Bouchée. we may be a small brasserie, but our flavours are big and bold, everything is made from scratch using the best ingredients and its all accompanied by delicious Cocktails, Champagne, Wine, Craft Beer and Cider.
All of our ingredients are locally sourced, responsibly sustained and where possible homegrown. We have a varied and seasonal menu which caters for everyone. If you have specific requirements simply let us know when you book your table.
The idea for La Petite Bouchée for La Petite Bouchée happened one early morning in March 2014. Fast forward to August 8th 2014 and a huge rain storm. La Petite Bouchée launched in Sydenham Wells Park, South London, without electricity or running water and the customers loved the concept and within a year we were expanding our offering.
In February 2017 we moved, lock, stock and barrel from London to beautiful WITHERIDGE in rural Devon where we immediately started to build our restaurant business here in Witheridge, North Devon. We opened on May 5th 2017.
Our vision is to create a unique dining experience using big flavours and the best from Devon's Larder.
