Gourmet Lunch in France
Hostellerie de la Riviere, Pont de Briques, on the outskirts of Boulogne
Thursday 12 April Wednesday 10 October Thursday 6 December
One of our most popular excursions is to go to France for lunch.
Our gourmet day trip to France begins when you board the coach. Warm pastries and Bucks Fizz are served while we are on our way to the Channel Tunnel. Hostellerie de la Riviere is found on the outskirts of the coastal town of Boulogne and is, therefore, only a short drive away once we emerge from our Eurotunnel crossing. It has been in the same family for over 30 years and has built up an excellent reputation for the standard of its cuisine. We have known the chef and his wife for many years and this is evident in the warm and spontaneous welcome we receive on each and every visit. A glass of champagne is served on arrival with an amuse bouche. In the summer months we are greeted with our glass of champagne in the garden if the weather allows. This is then followed by four courses, each accompanied by a specially selected white or red wine. The leisurely lunch is completed by coffee and petit fours. The food is served in the stylish, light and airy restaurant in the friendly, relaxed manner you look for in French dining and the meal is always a triumph.
After lunch there is normally time to visit the Auchan hypermarket nearby for those uniquely French items of shopping to take home. On the train back to Folkestone we serve a light supper of fresh French bread with cheeses, pate and grapes. No wonder many of our longstanding customers choose to return again and again for an excellent meal and many have come on a Lunch in France to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.
