Tucked away in the labyrinth of alleyways that connect Thomas Street and Chapel Street, Montpellier's is a Northern Quarter cafe bar spread over two floors, serving a range of home cooked, French inspired dishes alongside a carefully compiled wine list and a range of draught beers.

The Francophile name serves as a hint to what's inside - though Montpellier's is not a Parisian pastiche, but rather a subtle nod to the je ne sais quoi of rustic France. The decor is stripped back and stylish, with pine floors, exposed brickwork, a stunning oak bar and Canadian red wood tables - and plenty of nooks and crannies for intimate date nights or drinks with friends. Downstairs you'll find a cosy basement with space for live events (and a HD screen for live football), while the ground floor lounge bar is light and airy, with plenty of windows and seating in comfortable booths.

With DJs in the evenings at weekends and a relaxed and convivial atmosphere all day, Montpellier's is a most welcome new addition to the Northern Quarter. This plush, rustic style drinking den also do cocktail masterclasses should the evening so take you; just the ticket for birthday shindigs, cocktail crooners and special events alike.

Only been in here for lunch a couple of times - the menus simple but really yummy - great soups and stews style. Bit off the beaten track and a slightly older crowd. Apparently a good place to watch the football - I'd definitely choose here over some places in town!

Top little boozer this. Pretty hard to find but that's good because it keeps the kn*bheads away. Top vibes on a Friday night!
