We arrived in Fumel on bikes via the old railway line from Puy l'Eveque. From the site of Fumel station it was quite a push to the town. When we got there the place was closed up and deserted - not unusual at midday in France! Searching for a restaurant we chanced on the Brit Hotel. It looked deserted from outside, but inside it was heaving.
The buffet hors d'ouvres followed by baked perch and then by the buffet desserts was excellent - and at €18 was very good value. (There were other choices and other menus starting from €15.)
The view from the terrace is superb - and not totally unrelated to the climb into town! However, the day we visited it was cool and showery. So everyone was eating indoors - we just had coffee by the infinity pool with the view.
A good find and a great place to eat with the locals!More
