We visited on a Friday lunch-time. It is always wise to book and the dining room was close to full. We dined off the £21.50 for two courses menu, which has four interesting choices for each course. My wife began with a bacon and onion puff-pastry tart, which was very tasty. I chose pan-fried devilled kidneys, which were magnificently tender in a spicy sauce. My wife continued with the fresh fish of the day, on this occasion a chunky gurnard fillet in a cream and wine sauce. I chose the rabbit cassoulet with white beans and Morteau sausage. It was fine, although I would have liked more liquid.
A plate of carrots and green beans accompanied the main course. My wife had a glass of Macon blanc villages, while I had a glass of tannat Madiran. These were both tasty and well served. We ended with a shared portion of crepes Suzette, which were truly delicious. Brought to the table flaming, with an earthy sauce that was in no way over-sweet. Perfect! The room was warmed by a log fire, although my back was somewhat chilly on the table nearest the front door. The proprietor of the restaurant is very knowledgeable on French food and wine and is happy to chat about them, which adds to the overall experience. We greatly enjoyed our lunch.
