We will send you the menu once your booking is confirmed via email and we will ask for a £10 per head deposit to secure your table (This will be taken off your final bill) if you have not eaten with us before or your table is larger than 6 people.
Three days before the date of your booking we will need your menu choices, we have a zero waste policy and only ever order in what we need from our network of suppliers. All of our food is fresh and not frozen... except our homemade ice cream and sorbet !
Payment can be made via debit or credit card or in cash, we do not accept cheques. Vouchers must be declared when booking your table so we can check them against records.
Discounts cannot be given on top of any seasonal offers. Sadly we are unable to offer credit.
All tables are available from 7pm-10pm. We ask guests to be seated by 8pm, however, we are happy to be flexible if you need to arrive slightly later, just let us know in advance and we'll happily accommodate you.

Don't take our word for it, check out our reviews, the good, the bad and the well... other HERE, or on FACEBOOK or TRIPADVISOR We love to hear feedback good or bad, its what keeps us on our toes and wanting to raise the bar higher, so don't hesitate to take the plunge.
We sincerely hope that your experience with us will be a wonderful one, however, sometimes things do go wrong and we need to know when they do. In our very limited experience of this happening we have found that dealing with issues as they arise means we can rectify them, quickly, discreetly and to the satisfaction of everyone concerned. The chef at La Petite Bouchée is also one of the owners and is always in the restaurant, is highly approachable and will able to help instantly. Our front of house team Linzi and Nigel are also completely authorised to deal with any issues which arise. Sadly, we cannot offer refunds if you complain a few days later or as a result of bad reviews online.
We appreciate that things happen and that sometimes life gets in the way. We've all had to cancel reservations, however, we do have a policy and we require at least 48 hours notice if you intend to cancel. As a small business, late cancellations and no shows really hurt us financially. Cancellation outside the deadline or a no show will mean we will sadly not be able to refund your deposit.
Please let us know any special dietary requirements at the time of booking, if you're unsure or have any specific requests please do not hesitate to call us on 01884 860 654 and have a chat. Equally, If you do not like something on the menu we are always happy to discuss alternatives. We want everyone to have the meal they want and pride ourselves on being able to replicate most of our dishes to suit dietary or medical needs - We've catered for all of the following on a very regular basis:
"Fussy Eaters" Your words, not ours
Dysphagia ( difficulty swallowing or chewing)
La Petite Bouchée is all at street level and the entrance has one very small step in. and one step up. There is one step down to the loo's which are all on one level. If we know your needs in advance we can ensure you're seated comfortably. We have ramps and other aids available on request. Just chat to us on 01884 860 654
SMOKING - Is not permitted anywhere in the restaurant or in the immediate vicinity of the restaurant including the courtyard, pathway, the front of the house or near the camper van. If you choose to smoke during your meal please walk over to the other side of the square nearest the Church. There's even a seat, I know how hard it is, I used to smoke 40 a day, trust me some nights, I'll be wishing I was out there with you.
Sadly, dogs are not allowed in the restaurant. WE LOVE DOGS, we have three, but we are mindful of our diners and some don't, some are very allergic. So we err on the side of caution. SERVICE DOGS for the disabled are of course allowed in the restaurant. (Please let us know when you book, so we can ensure we can provide space and water & treats etc)
We're all different, which is what makes us unique. With this in mind we respectfully ask guests to think about the environment around them. We want everyone to have an amazing time here at La Petite Bouchée. We also ask is that you PLEASE leave quietly at the end of your evening and respect that this is a residential area. There are neighbours along the pathway as you come in and go out. We all get on very well and we'd like to keep it like that. *The restaurant needs to be vacated by 10pm
