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 local dishes, 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.

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' or nibbles.
