This was a perfect place to kick off a weekend tour of the battlefields with my father and eldest son as we tried to retrace the steps of my mother's grandfather, who was British soldier. When we couldn't raise a taxi home to our accommodation...More

Looks pretty awful from the outside, but don’t let that put you off. Friendly and buzzing inside, and packed with locals on a Tuesday lunchtime. Four courses, a drink and coffee for 15.5 euros is great value for money. Roast chicken was delicious.

Lovely friendly and welcoming staff in a relaxed atmosphere where the French eat! There was a good choice within each course and there was half a carafe of wine or a beer or soft drink included in the price. Couldn't fault it.

This restaurant is on par with La Tavern de Cochon Sale. From the outside you would not give it a second glance but the food is amazing. I am awestruck that in this little corner of France the food is so well prepared. Well done...More

Its Ok for a quick stop and a snack, tried to go on an evening, and it was closed - but the following day we had a light lunch. It did what was needed.

On the main road between Pozieres and Albert, le Poppy is a fairly uninspiring restaurant of the kind that probably attracts a good lunchtime trade with lorry drivers. In the evening it is perhaps quieter but still offers food of the ‘Menu du Jour’ kind....More
