“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

We travelled quite a way to this restaurant which is very conveniently situated in the centre of the town just a few metres from the entrance to the racecourse. We went there on a dismal November French bank holiday and it brightened our day. We were glad we had booked as the place was full, turning away others arriving after us.

The menu was extensive for a restaurant in France and 4 of the party had the 22€ menu whilst 2 had the extra course 30€ menu. All dishes were freshly cooked, evidenced when one of the party, unable to eat cheese asked about the inclusion of cheese in one of the dishes and so this was omitted from the stuffed chicken breast at his request. Everyone enjoyed the food and we followed the recommendation of the house for the wine (a local rosé) and were not disappointed. Service was friendly and nothing was too much trouble and we were not rushed even though we were the last to leave the restaurant after our leisurely lunch spent chatting to firends we had not seen in a while.

We will definitely go again on a race day for lunch before the famed Pompadour Races next summer.

Total cost for 6 was just about 190€ ie which averaged out at a shade over 30€ p/head which, on a bank holiday - for aperatifs, beers, fantastic 3 or 4 course meal, wine & coffees - was good value in my book.

Can't recommend it enough!

“Hospitality at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Eight of us holidayed for two weeks in the area and were recommended to visit 7 by our hosts. We enjoyed our meal so much we went back twice more!

The English owners are welcoming, attentive and keep a good kitchen. The fixed price menus were varied, good value and interesting. The food and drink was all lovely and served with a smile. What more could you ask for?

Thank Steve F

We stayed in France for 2 weeks and were reccommended to try 7, definitely the best place we had found to eat out the whole time we were there! Delicious food, with great staff too. We left each time feeling stuffed and keen to come back again :)

We stayed here for a few days in July 2012, it was one of the nicest B&B i have ever stayed in.
The couple who own it are English and made us feel so welcome, lovely people. The food was excellent and very high standard.
Lovely rooms, next to a lovely Castle and race track and nice big pool across road, and supermarket.
Would definitely advise anyone thinking of staying in Pompadour to stay here
