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. We are now a multi award-winning restaurant with a highly respected brand.
Our vision is to create a unique dining experience which couples big flavours with a relaxed and friendly ambience. We will only us produce which is sourced within a 15 mile radius with much of it homegrown. We cook everything fresh from our scratch kitchen and care deeply about our impact on the planet.

RE-Openining MAY 21st
We are on target to reopen on the weekend immediately after May 17th* and very much look forward to welcoming you back to La Petite Bouchée.
We have a brand spanking new booking system which is easy to use and can be found HERE
We are not sure what the new guidelines will be in the run up to June 21st but for now we're assuming that the rule of six will apply and masks to be worn if you're not sitting at the table etc.
We have also been tasked with ensuring you all check in on arrival. We'll have the new code for you to zap with your phones but fear not. if you've not got a smart phone or the app, we'll do it the old fashioned way and ensure that you fill in our forms on arrival. Sadly, if you don't want to check in you'll not be permitted to stay in the restaurant. These rules come from the government, not from us.
We want you to enjoy your time with us, when we reopened last year our guests felt safe and commended us on our mix of governance and normality.
You can check out what's on the menu right through to July. Don't forget if you're bringing the kids, they either eat half price or free depending on their age.
