La Boheme is a well-thought-of, family-run French restaurant near Lymm. The decor and the plating are a bit dated but considering the quality of the food, it offers impeccable value, particularly the lunch and early-evening menus.
Expect old-school French classics cooked with technique and flair. The seasonal menu changes regularly but typical dishes might include frog’s legs on a fricassée of wild mushrooms or a lamb fillet with a pithivier of slow-cooked lamb shoulder.
Desserts are equally classic. A skilled patîsserie produces cherry financiers and choux pastry buns topped with craquelin and filled with a chocolate, hazelnut and pistachio crémeux.
For a small restaurant in the countryside, the wine list is prodigious. The menu and cooking are a reminder of the quality you can find in establishments like this in France.
