Historic courtyard terrace
Coaching inn court yard terrace
Relax and enjoy all day long!
Many have described the 17th century court yard terrace of hotel La Croix Blanche as one of the most beautiful in the region. Walk through the historic coaching arch and discover our terrace full of flowers. Soak up the sun or look for shade under the large parasols on warm summer days while enjoying the display of geraniums on the terrace of our inner court yard.
Drinks 10am-10pm non stop (10-22hrs), lunch 12noon-2.30pm (12-14.30hrs), snacks 2.30pm-6pm (14.30-18hrs), dinner 7-9pm (19-21hrs).
Lunch, dinner and snacksLunch and dinner are served on the courtyard terrace every day in summer. Choose from different menus or the à la carte selection of our Le Plantagenêt bistro and restaurant menus.
The summer lunch menu offers a variety of salads, pasta, burger 'maison' and French bistro style dishes. Snacks are served in the afternoon to ensure all day dining. For dinner a more elaborate yet informal menu and an à la carte selection is on offer at excellent value. Restaurant le Plantagenêt has reasonable prices, an informal atmosphere and unique setting.
By the way: we serve a good English ‘cuppa’ of tea with a delicious cake too.
Local wine selectionIn a relaxing atmosphere you can enjoy a large selection of local Loire Valley wines: white, rosé or red wine, a sparkling Crémant de Loire or a glass of beer on tap or a craft beer accompanied by some snacks, 'charcuterie' and nibbles.
