Hi There A group of lads hit Toulouse every so often and visit a few ex pat bars just to have a decent pint! Usually we go to De Danu, Frog and Roast Beef and the Melting pot but I have just discovered via this site The London Town and the George and Dragon both John Bull pubs has anybody been there or know anything about them? Just wondering if they are worth a diversion on our next trip. Thanks

Hi all, Has anyone tried this wine, it's under the name "Chateau Cotes Veyrac". Is it any good? At 8,49 a bottle it seems cheap for a Grand Cru! I have googled the chateau but no trace for the 2008, the last entry seems to be for 2002. I don't have a lot of cash so don't want to waste it on a dubious wine, it's for Christmas and my wine knowledge is not very good. Thanks if you can help
Hi all. Can you help me please. Can any of you recommend a nice restaurant in Toulouse for a Christmas Eve Lunch for a party of four. We were going to go to Emiles in Place St Georges, but they are shut.. Similar ambience to Emiles would be nice. Thank you
Ever tried this website? If you have, I hope you received your goods. If you haven't steer clear. I ahve used them half a dozen times but over the last year or so, they have become a nightmare. Last order but one ttook six to eight weeks to arrive despite the site saying the goods were in stock. But to my chagrin I was tempted back by a great offer on champagne for a wedding. The order total of €1800 was promptly taken from my account on the day I ordered the wine that was again marked as in stock. I followed the order closely this time and was pleased to see they marked it a few days later as transferred to shipper. After three weeks I started emailing to advise non-delivery. Finally after four weeks I received an email apologising for the delay and saying they were in dispute with the shipper and offering my money back. By now they had radically increased the price of the wine on their site and I suspected this was a ruse not to deliver my order. I didn't want the money, I wanted the wine! Eventually I lost patience went elsewhere and asked for my order to be cancelled and my money returned. Despite being able to take the money the day you order, they said it takes them two weeks to return it. Threats of action were ignored by email and brushed off on the phone. Today I am still waiting for my cash back and getting to the point of claiming against Visa. Avoid the same problem and stay away from ChateauOnline!
Do you live near Maubourguet? Hotel de France has new owners. The chef is from Portugal and very good. But different from the local duck tradition. So very few locals are coming and we are afraid they have to sell up again. Please come for an outstanding meal
