City centre venue dishing up simply prepared and keenly priced bistro classics in a bustling and convivial setting.
Down a few steps in Hanover Street, Chez Jules offers simply prepared and keenly priced bistro classics in a straightforward, hang-onto-your-cutlery-between-courses setting. Snugly set-out tables generate a pleasing buzz across a room of checked tablecloths and candles in wine bottles, lined with movie posters and colourful artwork. Blackboard menus reveal great-value lunch deals – creamy goat’s cheese salad with honey dressing, and rustic terrine with onion chutney, followed by splendid skirt steak in peppercorn sauce. A comprehensive all-day à la carte ticks a lot of familiar boxes, with snails, frog’s legs in garlic and parsley, boudin noir with apple and moules-frîtes with aioli. Sharing dishes include slow-cooked rabbit leg with dijon mustard, alongside a sprinkling of specials and a range of chargrilled steaks matched to marrowbone butter and gratin dauphinoise. Fast paced and friendly, this is a charismatic venue offering generous, honest cuisine.
