Had an amazing fixed menu lunch here. Started with salt cod cream in a light puff pastry. This was followed by roast chicken with hi made tagliatelle and morel mushrooms. The chicken skin was the crispest I've ever tasted - peanut oil, salt and the high heat from a rotisserie is all you need our helpful waiter said. Next up... More

Just be clear- it serves a fixed menu although they will try and be flexible with allergies or vegetarians etc. If you don't like that don't go- however if you like outstanding local homely comfort food done to perfection then go. Atmosphere is stunning, service is exceptional and they greet you warmly and with real charm plus the wine list... More

Although it is a fixed set men( changing Dailey) including wine, they are accommodating if there is something you don't like. The Bresse chicken is one of the best there is

Absolutely fantastic little restaurant serving traditional French food. We went with family who live nearby. The menu is small - just one or two choices for each course which are changed daily. One price for four courses (the cheese selection is particularly good), also including unlimited wine! Incredibly friendly service too. I understand that people travel from all around to... More

There is only one main meal per day but they dont disappoint. The lamb on Wednesdays is sensational - tender, juicy and delicious. For starters in the past, I have had foie gras terrine, grilled eggplant with tomato and... More

We read about this restaurant in the travel section of a newspaper during our trip planning and called for reservations. The restaurant is a beautiful setting on a country road. The menu our night was escargots, chicken with pasta, cheese, and desserts (we had creme brûlée and apple cake). The cheese tray was divine, escargots and bread delicious. The chicken... More
