This is a nice place to stop for a pint and some good pub grub (they even do fish and chips on a Friday!) The staff are all Brits and many don't speak French (my husband is Italian and doesn't speak English and so had some problems). The negative for me (which I know will be a positive for many)... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Office Bar in Argentiere, excellent food with terrific chips and lovely salad. It might make a gourmet eating guide, but don't let that put you off, this is a nice friendly bar/restaurant with excellent service and food... What more do you want?

If you want to visit a friendly English only speaking bar in a French village, then this is the place for you. But it can be nice, when in France, to visit a bar where you have to order your drinks using their language rather than yours.

My wife and I have been coming to The Office Bar for several years on our summer visits to Argentiere. We used it most days last week, either for meals or simply for a drink/coffee. It is best described as an expat oasis in this area and it clearly has a loyal following among the cosmopolitan expat population of the... More

We have been customers of the Office for probably more than 20 years! We were passing through this evening & decided to have dinner there (for old times sake !?) Nowadays we travel as a family, which obviously forces us to economise as much as possible. My 12 yr old son was experiencing a sudden & terrible onslaught of losing... More

The Office has a good atmosphere and seems to be where the ex pats come to drink and do business deals. It is very informal. The beer is good and the food is good with huge portions. We've eaten here a few times and have no complaints. Staff friendly welcoming and helpful.

I'm often here in winter; and the bar always has a great atmosphere, often with live music, and a good mix of visitors and locals (some locals have a bottle of shots mixed for them with their name on it. how cool is that?). In July I visited in summer for lunch. They'd done some work and put a nice... More

The Office Bar might not make it to the Michelin Guide but it is good honest food, well cooked & presented. The wine list is pretty short but the house wines are fine - 4 adults and 2 children ate & drank well for 93 Euros - what's not to like? The service would shame most of the restaurants out... More
