Taverne - Saint-Valéry-sur-Somme

Taverne

Fetes Guillaume (2) Medieval Tavern

During the "Fetes", the famous Medieval Taverns settle in the old town, principally aroung the Church. The food is simple (mostly barbecue type) but the atmosphere is fun. You eat on big tables and that's an easy way to start conversation with you table neighbours.
