Auberge de Chassignoles

Country village Auberge south of Clermont-Ferrand

Called in for Sunday lunch – their first of the season. The auberge was providing aperitifs for local notables and the army celebrating Armistice Day (on 8 May), hence the rather bizzare table decorations and the crowd in the square outside the auberge.

Great lunch

  • charcuterie – paté, mousse and brawn (fromage de tête)- home made
  • fish soup with garlic mayonnaise
  • roast chicken with baby potatoes and jerusalem artichokes!
  • cheese platter (Fourme d’Ambert, St Nectaire and Berkswell!
  • Pot au chocolat with cream

With superb bread, a glass of wine (I was driving) and 2 cups of decent coffee €28.00! (about £23.50)

Auberge de Chassignolles, Le Bourg, 43440 Chassignolles. Haute Loire. France.
