Family Bar and Restaurant

The owners are very happy to welcome you to the Auberge du Noyer ...

Situated at only 5 minutes from Ruffec, this friendly family-run local bar and restaurant serves traditional French and English dishes. We also provide a bar menu if you're looking for something less formal.

There is a large enclosed terrace in front of the restaurant, and parking at the rear with disabled access.

Live music and special events add to the atmosphere on certain dates.

2017: Please note as of Monday 6th of February we will be operating the following opening hours until the end of april.

We will be open seven days a week for lunch and Friday and Saturday evenings.  The menus on offer will be menu du jour and a la carte Mon - Fri lunch times,  a la carte menu Fri evening,  Saturday lunch and evening,  and finally Sunday lunches will be available from 19th of Feb (as we have our valentines weekend on 11th &  12th).

The only exception to this is that we will be open as usual for our open mic nights (third Monday of the month). 




We took our family here for a meal before they return to the UK, what a fantastic decision we made. The food was absolutely fantastic, the atmosphere was really good and the welcome from the owner and staff was brilliant. We will definitely be going there again and again and again. We highly recommend that you come and visit, you will not be disappointed. Thankyou for a lovely meal to end the family stay here in France. - DLB, July 2014

Excellent food and service in very pleasant surroundings. We knew the auberge when it was a family home. The transformation is amazing! Good luck in your new venture. - KB, July 2014
