Lunches at Lauvitel Lodge

Our garden restaurant is frequently referred to as a little corner of heaven on earth, with an array of colourful flower beds and the soothing sounds of the running fountain.  There is ample sitting in the shade of our three mature lime trees or in the warmth of the sun.  It may be a simple lunch of classic and original salads or nourishing burgers and chips before setting off on the walk to Lauvitel Lake.  Or it may be a more elaborate meal with tasty starters, speciality dishes such as Pierrade or Raclette and delicious desserts, served with quality wine.  Combined with sun loungers, hammock and table tennis, lunchtimes often prolong themselves into a lazy and relaxing afternoon.

Garden Café and Bar

Our Garden Cafe and Bar is a traditional and popular stop off on the way up or way down from Lauvitel Lake, whatever time of day.  And, we are worth a special visit, a detour or even a stop-over if you are looking for speciality cold bear, good coffee, fresh tea, artisanal ice-cream and not forgetting a selection of extremely good homemade cakes.  Whilst we try to make sure we have an ample supply of our famous blueberry tarts we also do great carrot cake, amazing blueberry cheesecake and the best chocolate brownie.
