We travelled to Normandy and Brittany and found the food mediocre and overpriced at all the restaurants we visited on our travels. So back to an old favourite for our last night in France and thank heavens for La Garenne. It was a superb dining experience and as we chose the cheapest set menu and a pitcher of wine, the best value by far of the whole week. Every dish was delicious and the starters even came with edible flower petals. There is a pretty garden and a warm, eccentrically decorated dining room with a wonderful fire (very welcome in the winter). The hosts were charming and the service attentive and friendly. We can certainly recommend this delightful restaurant and will be returning very soon we hope.

I can't praise La Garenne enough, the food was out of this world, (we had the 4 course set menu) and everything was just fantastic, the service was amazing and the food, well we nearly went back the following night as it was so good. We will definitely return. Our dog, Harvey was allowed in (to lie under the table) as in all French restaurants. A welcome approach. Lovely.

La Garenne is a little restaurant just outside Hesdin, tucked away on a side street but serving really excellent food and with a wine list to match. The decor is quirky to say the least, but it adds to the experience and the service is excellent. I would highly recommend making a meal here a key part of any visit to the Seven Valleys region.

This is a fascinating restaurant in Huby St. Leu near Hesdin, Pas de Calais, France. The decor is something else, but it has a warm, homely feel helped along by a very large fire which is used to cook some of the meats. There is a lot of clutter in the main dining room, but it doesn't look out of place here, just adds to the atmosphere. Some rather bad paintings on the walls which I wouldn't give houseroom to. Didn't find out if they were for sale or only for decoration. The hosts, two very nice gentlemen, were charming. While we were there, there were a lot of British people. Although I was able to speak French, some of the other visitors only spoke English and there seemed to be no difficulty in communication. Can't recommend the food highly enough. It was wonderful. On their website you can see the menus listed. The cheese course is the biggest and the best I've come across. Good wine cellar with some bottles at over 1,000 euros a bottle - no, we didn't try that but did have a very nice rosé.
