At Le Bignon, our aim is to give you the opportunity to sample the very best food and wine that this marvellous region has to offer. All guests, whether staying in Chambres d'Hotes or in Vine House, are welcome to take Breakfast and Dinner (prior reservation required).

It is easy to see why this region is known as the Garden of France. All around us are fields of vegetables and flowers and our local markets are packed with regional produce that is a joy to buy and cook. We continue to work on expanding our own kitchen garden to bring more and more food straight from the garden to the table. In addition all meat and poultry is locally sourced.

Breakfast is served around 9am. We offer filter coffee, hot chocolate or Twinings teas, freshly pressed orange juice or apple juice from our own orchard, a buffet of cereals, cheese, local farm yoghurt or faiselle, local honey and a selection of fresh fruits with bread, croissants and viennoiserie, home made jams and jellies, such as quince, redcurrant and orange, damson and mulberry.
Dinner is served at 8.00pm with aperitives served in the sitting room around 7.30pm.

A Typical Dinner Menu

Salad of Charentais melon, local goats' cheese, garden tomato and cucumber

Supreme of free-range guinea fowl with a tarragon sauce, spring vegetables
Risotto of Loire asparagus and baby broad beans

White chocolate cheesecake 'maison' with a raspberry coulis

Your three course dinner will reflect the very best produce available and the wine list features local wines from an award winning cooperative plus additional wines from small family domaines a little further to the West.

Although dinner is Table d'Hotes, we will always offer a vegetarian or fish alternative if requested in advance.

Whilst we cannot guarantee to cater for all dietary requirements, please ask when booking and we will advise.
