Only open these days on Sundays, the Relais de la Hire retains a very smart dining atmosphere and the food and service are excellent.

The dining room is elegant the tables nicely laid but food very, very poor . Starters dull . The lamb was tough , the monkfish dry and all our main dishes cold . Service unfriendly too . We will not go back.

Outstanding food by a chef who cares passionately about how it is cooked and presented. How do I know? Apart from eating there on a number of occasions, I had the pleasure and honour of training with him. Eat there you won't be disappointed!
