Square Meal Review of La Poule au Pot ?

This adorably pretty, 50-year-old veteran is like a faded film set – unashamedly romantic and defiantly, almost theatrically French. It’s always a ‘squeeze’ in the cluster of small rooms with their quirkily rustic jumble of lace curtains, scuffed wooden chairs, retro china, flickering candles and baskets of dried flowers, but there’s more space out on the terrace flanked by potted olive trees. The menu, written in French, offers a flavoursome run through the classics of ‘simple country cooking’ – onion tart, cassoulet, rabbit in mustard sauce and, of course, poule au pot continue to work their magic. There are plenty of votes for the surprisingly well-priced wine list, too: the ‘quaffable’ house wine is dispensed in magnums, and you simply pay for what you drink. Twinkly-eyed waiters know how to turn on the charm.

    sexdrugsandbaconrolls :: La Poule au Pot

    This beautiful little French restaurant is nestled within the heart of Belgravia next to the old square in Ebury. It is easy to walk by La Poule au Pot especially in the winter at it is dark inside and has little promotion (it really doesn’t need it). In the summer however they have seats on the path way where people enjoy long afternoons of wine, cheese and friends (that is the life, no?). We walked into this small quaint restaurant and were greeted immediately by the waiter at a small wooden desk, he spoke French and we managed to get by (clearly he spoke English but it was clear it did not come naturally to him). All the waiters for that matter were French and would speak French to you whilst I (true ignorant Brit) would answer in English and point to things; I really didn’t meant to be rude but I have never studied French and to tell the truth even if I did I doubt I would be able to say much as my linguistic skills are lacking to say the least...
