Review on Le Bouchon Bordelais

'Un petit peu' of France nestling in the leafy surrounds of Clapham Common, Le Bouchon Bordelais aims to deliver the pure unadulterated French brasserie experience to the denizens of SW11. Inside it is Gallic to the core, with dark wood, red banquettes, black-and-white chequered floors and art deco lights; there's a long pewter bar too, plus a suitably French soundtrack tinkling away in the background.

In true French fashion, the place caters for all appetites, serving everything from petits dejeuners, 'les casses croutes' (croque monsieur and its variants) to a 'farandole' of more than 40 suitably stinky French cheeses. Come for a light breakfast, a boozy lunch or a romantic supper, and pick from a stoically patriotic menu that promises the likes of steak tartare ('spiced to your liking'), daube of beef, confit of duck and Dover sole meunière.

Oysters and crustaceans are a big draw, and grills also do the business (all the beef is grass-fed, 45-day aged Black Angus, Charolais or Limousin). Desserts play true to form, with coupes, chocolate mousse, profiteroles and clafoutis with brandy-soaked prunes. A superb 350-bin list of mainly French wines provides the back up.
