Merry Christmas everyone!

Well we are nearly there and I am so excited – our first Christmas in our own home here in Vouvant. We have spent the last two Christmas and New Year holidays here in Vouvant but this will be the first in our own place – and what a great start to the festive season we have had. They have finally put the Christmas lights up in Vouvant and it looks very festive. We have decorated the cafe and hope it brings some cheer to all our customers.

Last weekend we held our first Quiz Night and we had a great time. Paul’s Boeuf Bourginon went down a storm, as did the mulled wine and the ice cream dessert. The scores in the quiz were very close – the winning team “All the B’s” did very well with a score of 75 out of a possible 82. Team “Vivier” came second with a close 73 and “The Dyslexics” came third with a healthy 71 – well done to everyone who took part. We hope to hold another quiz towards the end of January and will let you know details as soon as they have been arranged.

We now have our Christmas beer on tap; this year the Bierre de Noel is a Leffe beer. It is a lovely golden brown with a Christmas flavour and is available in both 25cl and 33cl measures at 2E50 and 3E00 respectively. Why not pop in and try a glass with us?

We have now planned our Christmas festivities and our calendar looks like this:

Andrew has kindly offered to lead the proceedings.
