When ever I hear the lyrics to this iconic Rogers and Hammerstein song from Carousel, it makes me think of sunshine and smiles.
June is definitely Bustin' Out All Over with flavour here our little French Brasserie, La Petite Bouchée and we're very happy to share our June menu with you.
The menu as always has a fish, meat and vegetarian option. The vegetarian option can be transformed in the blink of an eye into a vegan course and of course if you have any special preferences or allergies, please flag them up. We are delighted to work with you to ensure you have a delicious meal.
