We stopped off for lunch on the way to catch the Cherbourg ferry having spent 10 days motorbiking round France and we smelled like ripe Camembert but the consummate professional staff welcomed us. They took our jackets, helmets, backpacks and put them into secure storage while we enjoyed our lunch which we chose from the 26 euros menu - it was to be out last meal in France. We were treated to an amuse bouche of a shot glass cucumber 'soup' followed by two massive slices of pate cut at the table from the terrine it which it was cooked and it was the best of the holiday. This was followed by pork in a lavender sauce served with fondant potatoes and then there came the cheese board. We then had the surprise selection of desserts which highlighted all the chefs' fine patisseries skills. We had no room for any coffee and could hardly get back on the bikes again. The restaurant was busy with local people who were welcomed and the service was exceptional. The staff were very gracious in handing over our iffy clothes and we were treated like royalty. It was more up market than we anticipated for a quick stop off and I should have been wearing the family jewels but the meal was one to remember.
