“We have had a house in this part of Normandy for 40 years.We dine out a great deal in the area ,and are normally full of praise for local restaurants. So is our friend (a former local hotel owner) who had known Le Grand Hard for 20 years and sent many hundreds of her guests to it ;but dinner there last night was a disaster ,from start to finish, for all three of us . Why ?...because the ownership has changed ,and there is a new chef! So forget about all the formerly favourable reviews : on the basis of last night DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT UNTIL THERE ARE DRAMATIC CHANGES ,BOTH FRONT OF HOUSE ,AND IN THE KITCHEN! What happened? First impressions were very favourable: lovely buildings and beautifully kept gardens ; a most agreeable interior ;and immaculate compliance with Covid 19 regulations . Perfectly pleasant welcome . But then..while waiting for our main courses , an ominous amuse - bouche arrived:white foam ,totally without flavour. The house wine ,a cheap and tannic red also arrived ,and was not cheap at 4.50€ either for the quantity or the quality supplied . But the really serious problems were the main courses. Entrecote steaks at € 28.50 were very expensive and ,though tasty enough ,had more gristle and fat than you would ever expect at this price . The Bearnaise sauce was devoid of taste: it could have been anything .The salad was not worthy of the name ,being just a little wet green undressed decoration at the edge of the plate . The chips were worst of all: flaccid and tepid when they should been crisp and hot. When asked ,we said we were not happy with the meal-and asked to see the chef ,as she plainly had no idea how to cook chips,one of the most basic items on a French menu. Though our friend spoke to her in a kindly constructive manner she took it totally unapologetically and plainly resentfully, hands on hips . Our friend had ordered the House hamburger (having enjoyed it here many times before). It arrived barely cooked, almost raw, and slimy. She sent it back to the kitchen to be properly cooked. It was little better on its return ,and overnight ,she suffered a major upset stomach clearly as a direct result of eating grossly under cooked meat The two Bavaroise Cerise (9€!)were bland nothingnesses ,and the coulis de cerise was so minimal, it barely made a difference, it tasted more like something produced in a factory than in a kitchen. We talked the owner about all the problems : he was non committal. Not even a token, thank you for your comments, let alone an apology. We talked to the waitress: she, (outrageously) said no one had ever complained before, ie, we were the problem. We had two 3 course dinners at € 32 euros each (not having taken the starter) = € 64 euros, the burger at € 15 euros plus the 2 glasses of wine at € 4.50 = 9 euro. Total € 88 euros. We were presented with a € 99 bill. We delicately suggested that there must be some reflection of the many problems,in the bill: it was reduced by only 5€! NEVER AGAIN!”

Served by the owner who is also the farmer and raised the beef we ate for dinner. The whole meal was delicious, but dessert was next level. Homemade rubharb ice cream and the BEST creme Brûlée I’ve ever tasted. Highly recommend!

A rustic country hotel that has a good restaurant but the room we had and the housekeeping could best be described as rough around the edges. There were many little issues that I would not expect to find at the prices charged. Breakfast was very poor value for money. Dinner in the restaurant was good with friendly staff, but relatively expensive.

We took a break from touring the battlefields for a nice lunch. The inn was very homey. The service was family oriented. The food was very good as was the wine. The atmosphere is special. It makes us wonder what it might be like to spend a couple of days at the inn. Enjoyable!

What a splendid place to stay, quiet and peaceful, a lovely room in a beautiful building. We had a room on the front(?) of the building, with its own deck to sit outside of an evening. Huge comfortable bed in a very large room and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. Breakfast in the dining room was very good with many types of fresh bread etc. The same room for evening meals (I’ll review the restaurant separately), but suffice to say they were also excellent. A lovely peaceful setting, in an area that has known such a pivotal point in modern history. Very welcoming and helpful owners, who made our stay so good, I wish we had stayed longer.
