“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

We had been, very kindly given a “Wonderbox coups de coer Michelin” meal for two. We made a reservation at the renowned Le Petit Coq aux Champs for Saturday 12th May 2012. Unfortunately we were totally disappointed.

We arrived 40 minutes prior to our booking allowing time so that we could enjoy an aperitif in their famously beautiful gardens on what was a beautifully sun early evening , we were told NO to the aperitif in the garden and shown straight to our table. We ordered aperitifs “suggested” by our waiter but not allowed to enjoy them as our “SET MENU” was served almost immediately. The menu was read to us no choices were offered the first course of foie gras was almost raw and swimming in cheap oil NO TASTE , the fish course was overcooked and the sauce a travesty of all that the word offers tasteless.

The veal was good!! The cheese course only confirmed that we were 2nd class clients we were presented with a breakfast bowl of lettuce with a small spoonful some sort of soft cheese, while the table next to us had a choice of 15- 20 cheeses all with an accompanying explanation, the desert consisted of a medley of sweets and a chocolate rock cake!!.

We spent £500.00 travelling to France especially for this meal with ferry and accommodation costs not to mention the 66.00 Euros spent on a taxi to and from the restaurant.

The Michelin organisation should re-visit this establishment on a “Wonderbox Gift Voucher we think Raymond Blanc would laugh once he was over the shock of such a terribly establishment, we’re not quite laughing yet.

To sum this establishment up in one word “TERRIBLE.”

I've never written a review before but enjoyed this hotel so very much that I feel compelled to tell people about it. The owners, Jean Marie and his wife, are incredibly welcoming and seem to be involved in every aspect of this hotel/restaurant. They made sure each person in our party was completely satisfied with their rooms, each charming and traditionally decorated. When we went for dinner, the food was stunning. Jean Marie is also the head chef and treated us to a veritable feast of local flavours, apple, camembert, scallops (cooked simply by placing the scallop on a heated stone, so the heat from the stone cooks the scallop!) and more.
The location is incredibly peaceful and the thatched roof building makes you feel like you are truly experiencing the traditional Norman countryside. Highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates a touch of tradition with delicious food.

This hotel is appropriately named: Surrounded by verdant meadows and fields, it is tucked away at the end of a country road. The thatched Norman houses that make up the hotel and restaurant complex seem from another era altogether. Inside, though, the hotel is modern and the rooms recently refurbished. We enjoyed the peace and quiet while lounging at the good-sized pool. Food at the restaurant was excellent and the creme brulee the best we have ever tasted.

I went there for lunch with family and friends and we were terribly disappointed. This place is hell. After sitting one hour, close to neighbours in a room with no soul, we had finished our first bottle of wine without seeing any other food but cheap butter and pistachio...
After the delay, the worst was to come with our meal. A real disgrace. Nothing was worth a quarter of the price we had to pay. Food had no taste, was dry and we were still hungry after lunch. And needless to say, the service is worst than in a parisian café.
Avoid this place. There are good and honest restaurants around.

We spent a very pleasant night in this small and attractive hotel with large restaurants, bars and sun lounges which look out on a well kept garden. We enjoyed the degustation menu which was competently cooked and served. The patronne was very charming and, when I rang to ask if I had mislaid an earring in the hotel, made great efforts to look for it, even taking the vacuum bag to pieces. She eventually rang and emailed me several days later to say that it had been found.

Our first stay was during "la canicule" of early August 2003.

Beautiful surroundings and brilliant experience - (a swimming pool should be made a legal requirement in such conditions - no enforcement needed here).

Mme. Fabienne Desmonts and M. Jean-Marie Huard were / are fantastic hosts. Mme. Desmonts speaks faultless English and graciously allowed us to try our French (myself, wife and, then, 9 year-old daughter) without any sign of sniggering!

Food was superb using really fresh produce "du terroir". Even our daughter ate dishes that were free of fries or "chicken-based" fried products. On a more liquid front, for me, the zenith was my introduction to "Le Prestige" - if you know, you know!!

What should I say? Tempted to report that it wasn't worth the visit (hopefully to make sure that our favourite room is free for our next stay - not saying when) - but I can't - not sorry. M. KH

Tend to agree with the earlier review.

An idyllic situation and very peaceful. There the pluses tend to dry up.

The room was small with no room for seating and the clothes cupboard smelt of damp. The bathromm had - curiously- two adjacent sinks but no means of inserting two people simultaneously. Common parts in need of a makeover with a depressing indoor garden and dark furniture-some of the armchairs too low to extracty yourself from, once inserted.

Pleasant dining room and OK cooking- though my partner's lamb had to visit the kitchen twice, really undercooked.

A pricey experience for a generally unmemorable night's stay.

  • Liked — peaceful environment
  • Disliked — undercapitalised and tired
