London-style pub offers a wide selection of beers, cocktails, soft drinks, coffees and wines. In a warm atmosphere with music, terrace, sport and after work evening. Fabulous local venue just a brief stroll down the road from us. It’s popular with locals as well managed and stunning service. Great wine list, and platters of food to keep you happy for a evening out. A beautifully run business, well thought out and a great addition to the offerings in the heart of Mayenne.

Traditional restaurant nestled on the edge of a lake,  with a panoramic view of a woodland.  Located in Deux-Evailles between Montsûrs and Jublains in the heart of Mayenne.  Perfect for romantic meals with an after-dinner walk. Located in a restored old mill, the chef cooks local seasonal products.  4 starters, and 4 tailor-made mains, that will make your taste buds salivate Reservation is necessary.  

You would expect to pay a lot more for this dining experience.
