I was very very excited about this place as the menu looks delicious (charcuterie boards, baked Camembert and different cheeses on sour dough) along with champagne. What could be better?

Great selection of champagnes and although expensive I like that they've stuck with it and don't offer beer and wine.
I had their house option (glass for £9) and it was delicious! Served in pretty glasses.
We also ordered a salad with cheese and sausage, baked Camembert with onion chutney and raspberries and a duck confit and cheese tartine. 
Although menu states a 20 min wait for the Camembert it was quite early on a Friday night and everything came in 10/15 minutes.
Camembert was delicious, as was duck and cheese toast however they brought the wrong salad with only some cheese rather than with sausage. They apologised and said they'd bring the right one out but actually just plopped some sausage on and bought our old salad out. Bit put out but ok!
Everything was nice but I just thought as that was their thing they could make it better. Especially presentation - the salad was in a small breakfast bowl which was hard to eat from.
Dessert was ok but small and simple for the £6 price
I was planning on coming back with a friend in the summer but I actually don't think I'll bother coming back
For those who want cheese and champagne i would recommend and say go for it but would recommend lots of other places in the area over this!

Looked way too nice to resist so we popped in. We did exactly as the names suggests and tucked into Champagne and Cheese. Good selection , and wonderful aroma ! Not cheap but an elegant way to spend the evening. The conversation flowed just as well as the Champagne.

Excellent variety of French cheeses and cured meats as well as champagnes. The staff was not very knowledgeable about the drinks though, which is understandable as the oldest was in their early twenties. The quantities of cheese served were tiny, but certainly not the price.
