My friend and I visited this café bar several times whilst we were staying in the area and enjoyed every minute. The bar is run by Julie and John who are extremely friendly and helpful. Julie told us about several things that were going on in the area and recommend the food market on a Monday night - a must go to, and the music festival. It is not a bar to go to if you want fine dining, but a café with snacks and great coffee, and a brilliant atmosphere. We will be going again next time we visit the area.

we were hoping to have a snack lunch as advertised on the blackboard and after waiting for ages the waitress condescended to come to our table to say there was only croque nmonsieur left! (it was 12 noon) when we showed our surprise she took this for us being hard of hearing idiots and repeated what she had said one word at a time very slowly and finished it by saying 'just as I said before' with a very unpleasant expression. We do not know what we did to offend her but if she hates her job so much maybe she should find another one.

We stopped in en route to meeting a friend and we are glad we did. The café is nice enough but the square it is on is full of olde world charm. You must stop here and wander around as it is so beautifully French.

We went to this bar on the recommendation of a chap we met earlier in the day. When we got there there only a few people outside. The barman was pleasant, friendly and helpful. The draught Guinness was great, often it's not in France, so they clearly sell a fair bit of it, it was poured properly. The barman turned out to be the owner and he chatted about the village, it's market & village life in an easy going manner. If you wanted a chat he'd chat, if not he left you alone. Attententive but not pushy. After a while few more English people came in and it appeared as if the bar has a fair number of regular ex pats as customers but throughout the evening there were French people dropping in who clearly use the place regularly as they had a good rapport with the owner. The owners wife/partner/significant other returned during the evening and helped behind the bar. She is French but spoke English very well. She was pleasant, sharing jokes with customers and was friendly, so I can only assume that the previous reviewer ("no thanks!") got the wrong end of the stick or perhaps the owner has got a new woman! Going to pop back when I'm at the market next Saturday and try the hot chocolate recommended by other reviewer. Saw them being served during the evening to a few people and was tempted but the Guinness won...
