Sandra and I have had a number of fine, home-cooked meals in the restaurant of the Columbier Hotel, 4, place du Général Leclerc, Ligueil in the South Touraine. If you’ve not been there it’s well worth a visit, especially for lunch where a three course meal sets you back just 10.5 euros…but then there’s the wine of course!
It’s become under new ownership since we last ate there. The atmosphere is just as charmingly french but the restaurant has been spruced up a little ~ as you would expect from new brooms. We both thought the quality of the food had improved. When we ate there this afternoon there were 17 other diners plus two full-on parties of about another 30 people – but nothing was too much trouble for the waiting staff team who, I’m pleased to say, the new owners have kept on.
Anyway, as we left I asked if I could take snaps of the old photos they have in the reception area. I reproduce them below.
