Reasons to go: Old (medieval) coaching inn in the middle of town. Comfortable rooms. About 110 minutes from Calais ferry so a good place to stop to/from the channel crossing. Food is superb with a roast being cooked on an open fire in the restraint. Easy to find taking the "centre ville" exit from the main road and following your... More

The old part is a restaurant of great charm and cobbled floors - unfortunately, the Sunday evening we went there was a loudly crying baby there and it seemed to be a heavily meat based menu, I am a vegetarian....so my Husband decided we should eat in the Bistro part, which has a totally different ambiance. It was our fault... More

The Auberge de Bon Fermier Restaurant This is a dinning experience in originality and quality that I've rarely come across. We were staying in the hotel for two nights and it's my own rule never to eat in the same place twice, however our experience on the first night was so good that I broke my own rule. The chef...

This place is amazing. As Americans, we don't get to see many places with so much history and this place definitely has history. You actually sit in what used to be a barn in the 16th century and has been kept very authentic. The big open hearth was brilliant. This place isn't all looks though. The food was amazing. The...

The restaurant looks very nice with open fire place and candles. The choise of food is mainly heavy meat. We tried to get something lighter and had scrimp salade to start, daily fish and another starter salmon pie for main dish. For desert mousse de chocolat. Everything was quite ok, but nothing special compared to the high price. The wine... More

We drove to Valencienne on a roadtrip and decided to stop at the Auberge for dinner since it had been recommended. The restaurant is really beautiful, in an old cloistered kind of way. Since you sit down you are surrounded by candles, large old wooden planks and a roaring fireplace. You feel you stumbled onto something special. The menu is... More
