C'est bloody magnifique

Another brilliantly named restaurant to tell you about - you don't really get more eye-catching than this in Notting Hill...

Bloody French is, as you can see from the logo, a cantine. Should this not mean anything to you, it is a French bistro, which is typically less expensive than a French restaurant proper, being that it is typically smaller and less formal.

Bloody French makes it even better value, thanks to its BYO (bring your own) policy between Sunday to Tuesday evenings - meaning you can bring your own wine, so you just pay for what you eat (they also have no service charge).

As well as this, the menu, of which there are brunch and dinner options, are regularly changing and of good value - for example, a rib-eye steak and trimmings for less than £14, something you would find difficult to beat in price anywhere, but especially in this part of town.

Special occasions are always a good time to celebrate with French food, and again Bloody French comes up trumps with its set-meals - so Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and the rest need not break your bank anymore.

Though I've concentrated on the value of this bistro, don't think that it means this place is all about cheap. Not at all. In fact, the interior itself is modern and chic, with large tables perfect for sharing. You'll probably enjoy the comfortable surroundings so much you'll end up staying longer than you had planned.

So the next time you feel a little bored of London (as if you would), make your way to Westbourne Grove and grab yourself a seat in Bloody French - you'll soon feel like you've just crossed the Channel - I'll raise a glass to that - Salut!
