We gathered there for a lunch hosted by Bob Tickler. Ideally we would have liked to have been in the terrace under a rambling tree looking down over the valley.
However you can hardly complain about sharing a dining room with what must be the finest collection of art owned by any restaurant.
Paintings by them were acquired by the original patron Aime Roux as many of them lived in France before the war and moved south to unoccupied France.
It’s the opposite of a celebrity restaurant as it is discreet and lets the place speak for itself.
The food was excellent.
Most round the table plumped for the 30 dish hors d’oeuvre, as I did, followed in my case by quennelles of salmon.
If you get bored with the company, just look at the pictures!!!
