What an excellent establishment, good beer and a reasonably priced menu! We regularly eat out in France and the menu is typical of a French country restaurant run by a chef/patron. There is a limited but imaginative fixed price lunch or a more expensive a la carte menu. The portions are typically French so if you are looking for a blow out, go to MacDonalds. We ate from the fixed price menu. The food was freshly prepared and obviously home made. We had a baked pepper and bean soup followed by perfectly cooked calves liver. My wife had plum and root ginger tart which was similar to a bakewell tart but with slithers of plum let into the frangiplan. (I am going to try and make this at home). The wine selection was reasonable with some good lower priced options. The service not too fast so there was time for converstion between courses sitting in front of the log fire. A very pleasant lunchtime experience. There are many pub/restaurants that aspire to this level of quality, few achieve it.
