Great friendly atmosphere, excellent food and staff. I asked about Gluten free and was handed an almost identical menu but some obvious things not there but mainly just adapted from the main menu. Will def be going back!

We enjoyed a very good supper here pre-theatre, at 5.30pm. We have visited a number of Cotes. They are all good value coupled with consistently good food and good service. We were served our first courses within 3 minutes, and our mains only 10 minutes...More

Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. On the menu, guests will always find brasserie favourites on our a la carte menu such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and tuna Nicoise, for dessert, Cote's creme caramel and creme brulee are much-loved house specialities. Seasonality and Cote's commitment to sourcing high-quality ingredients results in a monthly changing specials menu, ensuring there is always something new to delight regular guests and gastronomes alike, as well as the excellent value set menu. Open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner; Cote's atmosphere is informal and friendly
