A lovely location, beside the river, La Tonnellerie is a great place to eat. The set lunch at 13 euros is excellent value for money. Good food, good service, and very friendly waiting staff all make for an enjoyable experience. Our third visit so far, and always a consistently good standard.

Sitting outside on the terrace in summer is a delight.

I notice that one Tripadvisor comment gave La Tonnellerie only 1 star, saying how awful it is. But that person had visited no less than 8 times. So It couldn't have been that bad. Don't believe everything you read on Tripadvisor.

Just check it out for yourselves. A gem in the heart of Charente.

This is a very comfortable restaurant set beside a lock on the Charente River, we arrived by boat and were able to moor right outside. It is located in a historic building full of character and is English run. We had two meals a few days apart in mid September, the food and service are, quite simply, very good, we would rate this as one of the ten best meals we had in many years of visiting France. Cost wise, £65 will buy two people, two good courses and a decent bottle of wine.

Today was the third time we've eaten here over the last 18 months, and once again it did not disappoint. Excellent food from very reasonably priced menu de jour, combined with a lovely setting on a summers day and the right level of service. The high number of French diners also points to a very good dining experience.
