All round quality experience. Been to the French many times over the last 10 years and the quality of the dishes, the staff team and the atmosphere of the dining room are exceptional. I usually go to the French with my wife but this time we took my sister who lives in Liverpool for her 70th birthday. She has fine dined all over the country and she said the French is one of the best restaurants she has ever dined in. I think overall we probably enjoyed the duck dish from the initial menu the best, but every course was sensational in their own right. THe matching wine selection was also spot on, as always.

Very attentive and friendly staff. Lovely evening from start to finish excellent food and wine throughout. Left feeling thoroughly satisfied without feeling overfed. The sommelier gave a background to every wine we drank and the chefs presented everything at table with an explanation of each dish.

Amazing experience, really nice setting and decor at the Midland Favourite dishes on the signature menu were the pickled mussels, tater ash and forced Yorkshire rhubarb with baked English custard! Yummy! Thoroughly recommend this great restaurant!

Excellent meal at The French as always. A wonderful hard-working team that always greet you like a returning friend. A number of new dishes since my last visit - the Mussels and Pollock were 2 highlights, yet the welcoming hot broth, sourdough and beef butter is always heaven Many thanks to Kamila for her work as Sommelier - a number of superb wine choices. Great to dine at the Chef’s Counter once again and watch Charles and Luis prep their dishes. Until next time - thank you Adam and team.

Outstanding quality and really enjoyed how Northern it was. You knew you wouldn't get this food anywhere else than the North of England. Let down a bit by the very dated hotel public spaces which are badly in need of a major upgrade.
