Table d’hôte

Four or five times a week, we invite you to dine with us. Using the best local ingredients – vegetables from an organic farm in the next village, herbs and salads from her own kitchen garden and bread made at home or delivered by the local bakery – Gabrielle will cook you a 4-course dinner with wine. Based on French classics but also influenced by her culinary travels around the world, expect to be pleasantly surprised.

Having been a vegetarian for 20 years, but now a responsible meat-eater, the provenance of our meat and poultry is of the utmost importance to Gabrielle. All our meals are cooked with meat bought direct from farms and artisan butchers within the locality, and all of it is organic or free-range or, in the case of pork, with the Porc de Montagne label.

Auvergne is a green and fertile region, and the locals are justly proud of their reputation for producing some of the finest French produce. From bleu d’Auvergne cheese to Puy lentils, excellent charcuterie to the little know wines of the ancient vineyards of Saint-Pourçain – we aim to take you on a journey of gastronomic discovery. Vegetarians welcome!

Prices

Dinner includes an aperitif, starter, main course, cheese and dessert with wine or beer followed by coffee for 28 € per person.

Dinner is served at a leisurely pace, perhaps too late for young gourmets. So Gabrielle is happy to offer children their own delicious table d’hôte (using the same quality produce as for the grown-ups, of course) earlier in the evening, with our children, Louie and Florence. Nibbles followed by main course and pudding for 10 € per child.

On nights when we are not serving table d’hotes, Gabrielle can offer you a selection of local charcuterie and cheese with a carafe of wine for 16 € per person.

If you want to find out if dinner is being served on your first night with us, or if you want a charcuterie and cheese platter prepared for you, please email or call Gabrielle in advance.
