Our unique vintage English tea room is located in the heart of Chabanais, just over the bridge over the Vienne. Nearby you will find the gardens of the Arboretum du Chêne Vert, the Canoe-Kayaks in Exideuil and a little further, Cassinomagus, the Lacs de Charente and the Parc Aventure Massignac. We wanted to offer Chabanais and its visitors something different, so come and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer with your homemade meal. Enjoy our varied selection of hot and cold drinks, light meals and a range of light meals, cakes and sandwiches inside our tea room. We have terraces in front of our tea room and offer free wifi, disabled toilets, with outdoor and nearby parking, as well as a unique loyalty program for our loyal customers. We accept cash, Apple Pay,  alongside credit and debit cards.

Please note that we close on French public holidays and operate a 4 day week and are open from 10.30am to 3.30pm SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY but please check our Facebook, Google or Trip Adviser for holiday updates.

Our traditional menu and our constantly changing blackboard can be eaten or take away, if you are in a hurry. We can also sell a family portion of our dishes if you wish to have a few extra slices at home.

If you miss your British treats, our pantry is open to you and we have a great selection of everyone's favourites and at great prices. So if you need English sauces, hotpot or Indian sauces or Cadbury chocolate, we'll do our best to keep our shelves stocked. We also stock a great selection of Christmas cards and cards for all other occasions.

Reservations are not essential but recommended to avoid disappointment, please contact us by Phone, Messenger or Whatsapp. We also host private functions outside of our normal hours and will do our best to accommodate groups or larger bookings.
