“Last evening in Beussent.”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Four of us booked this pretty restaurant for our last meal. Full of local people, looking contented. Beautiful tasty food if somewhat pricey. Slight misunderstanding with the price of the wine-what we thought as ditto marks beneath the 19E price range, actually meant "any price"!! No intention to mislead but we would pay more attention if we made a further visit. A fine example of rural France cuisine close to Calais.

L'Auberge d'Inxent is a charming wayside inn in the depths of the countryside which was fought over so dearly 100 years ago.

The inn itself is lovely, and the bedrooms did not disappoint our party of three, all separately housed. The welcome was courteous rather than effusive, which is what I prefer. Breakfast was traditional French, with as many pains au chocolat and croissants, together with good French bread and fruit, as you could wish for.

Now we come to the sad bit. Despite all the hype about local produce, dinner was dull, except for the bill. The amuse bouche, a creamy confection involving beetroot, was fine without being startling. The first courses, soup in my case, were adequate. But the mains were disappointing. My duck dish appeared to be an attempt to get into the record books for the number of times a dish could be rechauffee without killing it dead. Well, the limit was reached, and passed.

Sometimes you will meet a woman who had been a great beauty in her youth. Despite the raddled countenance, testament to a surfeit of tobacco and gin, you can still detect, amidst the ruins, a hint of former greatness.

It was not so with my duck casserole. This was no Ozymandias, there were no past glories, it was just just a wreck.

Perhaps we were unlucky. The usual chef might have been away. And it is such a nice place that I would not wish to put people off going there. I would simply warn against unreasonable expectations concerning the food.

This should be in the restaurant section not just hotel (I have never stayed there), and the service is perfect. Superb place - the only one I have found so far and it is right by a trout farm - to have a real truite au bleu with the vivid blue tinge and unique texture of the fish cooked seconds after its demise. Which is why I went there for a third visit. A vivid & delicious green soup started the meal; the fish came cooked to perfection with butter sauce, carrots, greens, turnip and a little couscous tower. Pud was superior hot apple flan and ice cream. Appetiser a tiny cup of hot & delectable alphabet consommé, welcoming on a cold spring day. Coffee came with a yummy Beussent chocolate from the local chocolaterie. Prices v. reasonable.
This is a lovely place, friendly and warm in atmosphere (log fire, the rabbit main course simmering on the range in the entrance hall) and I would go back for that if I could resist the trout! Should have 5/5 for food, 5/5 for ambience.
NB This road is on my "Don't forget the coolbox" trip list, qv.

We stayed for I think our 4th time early October, when the valley was full of mist in the morning, the Auberge covered in geraniums and vine de feu – Virginia Creeper at its flaming best - and the table set outside the front door covered in gourds and pumpkins. This has become our favourite stopover on the way from or to Calais – a very, very French beginning or end to a holiday. If you want TVs in your room, modern decor, busy nightlife or the latest dining sensation, don’t come here. If you'd like honest goodness, locally sourced food that really, really TASTES, attentive and kind service, an old fashioned feel and a totally peaceful, quiet night...this is for you. We’ve stayed in various rooms in the Auberge – all quiet although the place does creak and the walls can be thin. But the water is hot, the towels warm and fluffy, the bedlinen excellent, the bed itself comfortable. We loved the painted lampshades – local since the views are of the Canche Valley. This time we stayed in the new Chambres d’hotes owned by the hotel a minute’s walk down the lane. Our room had windows on two sides, one looking over rooftiles to the river – no sound except for a distant murmur of water. The shower room was brand new – lovely tiles and basin, big showerhead, smashing shower. Dinner and breakfast were in the main building and since it was Sunday night – the French tend to eat on Sunday lunchtime – we were alone. But the room was laid up for us beautifully with candles and flowers on every table, and it was clear we could have whatever we wanted from the menu – the kitchen waited upon us. We opted for the regional menu, with cheese, at 34.50eu. I started with the aperitif maison – well worth having. A cremant with Genièvre and I think redcurrant liqueur. We had an amuse bouche of radishes, tomatoes, a little tart, a fold of an omelette or ficelle, and slices of fennel. The vegetables are so fresh and crisp and have so much taste. We then had a small bowl – another amuse bouche, really – of pumpkin crème, with dish placed prettily on a leaf of vine de feu. We both opted for starter the Legumes de soleil (veg dish of courgettes and mirepoix, pepper stuffed with chevre and basil cream) then Pintade Fermière au Vinaigre de Framboises. Perfectly cooked, wonderful full tastes.The cheese board was exquisite – about a dozen choices, all in prime condition, all local. For pud my husband had tarte au pomme with ice cream and I had Parfait Glacé au Genièvre de Houlle et Pain d'Epice. We finished with excellent coffee – decaff – and I had an eau de framboise. We asked Monsieur Six, who after all used to be a sommelier, to choose the wine and as ever he brought us something delicious and not too expensive – I’ve had brilliant wines on his recommendation before and he always suggests something good, and never breaks the bank. We slept oh so peacefully and came back for breakfast – again, in splendiferous solitude with totally attentive service from Monsieur Six, who is so charming, so helpful. Freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, fresh croissants and baguettes and lovely jam. We could have had cheese and cold meats too if we’d wanted. It’s personal, it’s delightful, it’s ‘France Profound’. I’d highly, highly recommend it if it wasn't for the fact that I'd prefer to keep it secret.

Room Tip: the village is quiet so you don't have to worry about road noise. we've stayed in several ro...

A lovely meal and very reasonably priced.

Traditional regional food, very well cooked and delicious.

Several of us had trout and the proprietor took our kids outside to see them catch the fish from their pond to cook them: that is freshness you do not often get.

The wine list was very comprehensive and very reasonable.

There are some places in France that just do it right: lovely food, nice atmosphere ata resonable price. This is one of them.

(We did not stay but I would like to in future)

We started our weekend break in great style by stopping at this restaurant where the food (locally-sourced) was very good, the service likewise and friendly. A very enjoyable meal in relaxed surroundings - would definitely call again and would be interested in trying the rooms. And very good value for money.
