Brasserie and terrace


Perfect for a casual lunch, get-together with pals or to raise a glass and rub shoulders with the local fisherman and vineyard owner. A chilled glass of Sancerre or local beer on the sun-drenched terrace is heaven on earth.


Our brasserie is open every lunchtime except on Sunday, and on Sunday & Monday evenings.

Hotel de France Terrace bar informal eating male couple and waitress



Discover why the locals want to keep us their best kept secret: the best coffee bar this side of Paris – and the best, quintessentially French bar too. Enjoy a well-earned beer or a cheeky glass of wine while admiring our motoring wall of fame.

Holiday bliss!

Packed lunches


Day out with petrolheads at Le Mans? Chateaux and vineyard tour planned?  Cycling or walking day ahead? The Hotel de France’s famous picnic packs fill tummies par excellence. True legends in their own lunchtime.

Dietary requirements:

An exciting vegetarian menu is available every day. The kitchen can also assist with a range of wider dietary requirements, including gluten-free, dairy-free and allergies (advance notice preferred, but we will do our best to accommodate late notice requests).

Disabled access

Disable guests are welcome in our restaurant or in our brasserie. As we are an old building, please let us know before your visit, so we can prepare everything ready for you. We have several options available depending on specific requirement.
