Belves is a beautiful village in The Dordogne and one of our favourite destinations in this part of SW France. The views are spectacular (hence the name) and parking is good and convenient. We easily found P&P, our first visit having watched the Ch 4 A New Life in the Sun programme back in the UK, and popped in for lunch. The setting is lovely and lends itself to conviviality. We were made to feel very welcome and ordered a moyen ( medium) planche of cheese and charcuterie accompanied by glasses of red and rosé. We both have healthy appetites and the quantity of food was spot on. The breads were great and the several items on the planche ( selected by our hosts) were just fantastic. We could have chosen our own items from an extensive list but it would have been a lengthy task as there are so many mouth watering choices. The wines were superb and, again, there is a marvellous selection. The prices are very reasonable and we have booked a lunch next month with friends staying with us from the UK. Damon and Graham have created a real gem and are expanding the business with a wine shop around the corner which opens very soon. We highly recommend P&P and can’t wait to return.

In the bustling street of Belvès, this is a new bar which served an amazing range of wines by the glass (or bottle!) and a delicious selection of local cheeses and charcuterie . The hosts Graham and Damon, are friendly and knowledgeable about the cheeses, wines and area. Such a warm welcome and explanation of the different options, we thought we would pop in for a quick nibble and drinks, and spent a couple of very relaxing hours watching the world go by as we enjoyed the food and wines. An absolute gem, you must visit. We will certainly be back and recommend to all!

We stayed with Graham and Damon for three nights when touring the Dordogne. They were the perfect hosts, our room was very clean and the breakfasts each morning of bread, croissants, jams, yogurt, juices and tea/coffee were just right to fuel our day. Damon cooked some delicious evening meals for us (covid restrictions requiring we ate at the premises) and the one planche of cheeses and charcuterie we indulged in was excellent. Graham provided a blind wine tasting experience for us on one of the evenings which was good fun even though we were poor students! Will definitely return and stay with them again and would highly recommend them and their establishment

We stayed at Planches & Plonk for 5 nights using it as our base to travel to various areas in the Dordogne region. Right from the moment we arrived and being warmly greeted by Damon And Graham, we knew we had made the right choice. Due to unforeseen circumstances we didn't arrive until 11pm and they kindly prepared us one of their delicious cheese and charcuterie planches with the obligatory glass of red (recommended by Graham). We could not have wished to have met two nicer people, they could not have done enough for us and genuinely made us feel at home, so sorry Damon and Graham we WILL be back! John n Kathy Menorca

Visited early evening, 07/07/2021. Asked for advice from Graham,(prop) re food and wine and was very ably assisted with choice of local Chardonnay and red to accompany our assorted meats,cheeses,pickles and pates which were prepared and presented by Damon.(prop). Excellent evening and we left with a bottle of each wine. Saw these guys on Ch 4 show,new life in the sun and were not disappointed. Very nice premises,toilets immaculate and decor great. Well worth a visit. Overall a 5* experience.

We had a fantastic mixed platter of meats and cheeses and these were accompanied with some beautiful tasty wines recommended by the hosts. Belves is a lovely place to visit and to have this marvellous establishment to visit is a recommendation. We also met a lot of ex pats that frequent this cheese and wine bar who were eating at the restaurant next door and they also made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of advise.

We moved here recently and this wonderful wine bar quickly became a firm favourite of ours. The owners, Graham and Damon, are a joy to be around. They have an incredible knowledge of their cheeses, meats and wines and are always on hand to offer suggestions for pairings, etc. Their bar is perfectly situated within the pedestrian streets of medieval Belves. Whether sitting inside or outside, you'll be guaranteed a wonderful experience. Planches and Plonk offer, by far, the best cheese and charcuterie board we have ever tasted. Next month we are looking forward to attending one of their special wine tasting evenings! If you visit Belves you must drop in and discover this gem!

A highlight of our holiday in France. We visited after thinking how nice it would be to visit the restaurant after watching on A New Life in the Sun. Our visit didn't disappoint. We stayed 2 nights here in a well appointed bedroom, great shower, quality toiletries and bedding. Very comfy bed, much appreciated fan in the bedroom. Breakfast was exceptional for France. Everything fresh and good quality. Croissants, bread, choice of 2 butters, fresh juice and coffee. We ate with them on Saturday evening and Sunday lunchtime. Both boards were exceptional and coupled with fantastic wine. On Saturday, we had their suggested board (mixture of cheeses and meats) which was delicious. Initially we were going to have a chablis but Graham suggested a lighter and cheaper option which was an excellent pairing. For Sunday, we let Graham and Damon choose, giving a steer of different from the night before. Again all excellent. We asked Graham to choose 2 glasses of red wine to compliment. Again he came up trumps with an expert match. We also visited their wine shop Plonk & Plus and bought our Christmas wine. Overall we were thoroughly delighted by our visit and stay. Belvès is a beautiful place to amble round, with plenty of places to relax. Damon and Graham are wonderful hosts, set a relaxing tone and are very attentive without fussing. A special word for Malbec, their dog, who is very well behaved and is training Damon and Graham well. We loved our visit and will definitely be back.

Thank you for staying with us, eating with us and stocking up on your wines for Christmas with us! It was a real pleasure to meet you and be able to get to know you. Malbec is continuing to whip us into shape and I am particularly enjoying my new fitness regime... which involves being dragged around the village. All the very best to you both, Graham

We stayed here as well as eating here every evening! Damion and Graham are really lovely hosts. We had a lovely room with super shower. They serve platters of charcuterie and cheese, these are locally sourced and of the best quality. A very good selection of wines and very knowledgeable hosts, happy to recommend a wine to go with your selection. Highly recommend.

This gem of a place and it’s very welcoming professional owners are real delight Absolutely faultless. The knowledge of produce and wines makes it all the more interesting as even if you (like us) know you like wine but are not knowledgeable these guys will make sure you have what suits your taste, they take the time and care to make sure you have exactly what you want without over facing you. It is a really relaxing environment. Nothing is too much trouble, the interior design is really tasteful and the place is immaculate. We were a family aged from 20 to over 80 and everybody had a wonderful experience. The locally sourced foods are absolutely delicious and presented beautifully, it is tastebud heaven in both the food and drinks experience. Pricing is mid range, there is something for every budget. You can’t fail to enjoy this very special place, We can’t wait to return.

We spent four nights In Belves, especially to celebrate my cousins birthday at Planches et Plonk. The first night as a family of 6 we were treated with a warmth and friendly services by our hosts, that we felt as if we had been going there for years. Both our hosts were every in the true professionals with being prickly or snobbish and make the whole experience fun, educational and taste delight. I cannot begin to tell you how much we absolutely loved the evening , but I can only tell you the my husband and myself went and spent the evening there again on our own before we left for home. Simply classy, sophisticated, charming, relaxed and fun. Loved, loved, loved every minute of the time spent with you. We are already planning our next visit with some friends , who are so jealous of our fabulous time spent at Planches et Plonk. Ps, thank you both so much for all your help with the wine selections and the fact that we were able to take several bottle home with us purchased from you fabulous wine shop. See you soon, but not soon enough

We were staying a reasonable drive away, but it was absolutely worth visiting and no better way to celebrate our wedding anniversary and our children were also made to feel very welcome. Our cheese/meat platter was exceptional and so much to enjoy accompanied by some fantastic wines as recommended by Graham. The atmosphere and the weather made the lunch thoroughly enjoyable and when in the area we will definitely look to visit again, although maybe in the evening so we can spend even longer enjoying the cheese, wine and excellent hospitality.

We loved lunch at Planches et Plonk. Great food, great service, a wonderful experience all round. We ordered the grand platter of local cheeses and meats with a variety of bread - it was plenty for the four of us. Along with the food we enjoyed some lovely red and rose wines from Chateau Montdoyen & Domaine de l’Ancienne Cure as recommended from Graham. Sadly it was raining when we visited so we couldn’t sit outside but the wine bar is really nicely decorated. Service from Graham and the team was spot on and it was nice to meet Malbec although I think he was only after our food !! The bill came to 120 euros for the four of us which included service and coffees / teas. A wonderful lunch, it’s just a shame that Planches isn’t based in the UK as we would be there every week.

During our stay in the Dordogne we made a special trip to Belvès to visit Planches & Plonk. The wine and cheese bar is beautifully decorated and the welcome from both Graham and Damon was warm. Their knowledge of wine and cheese is quite exceptional so we left the choices up to them and we weren’t disappointed. Everything was local and absolutely delicious! Such a unique and enjoyable experience in one of France’s most beautiful villages. We wish them every success with their venture and we can’t wait to return.

What an incredible find Planches et Plonk is. A very unique experience. The hosts, Graham and Damon, have a wealth of experience in wine and food which they share with enthusiasm and intention to make your occasion special but without any pomposity whatsoever. The wine and food is all local produce of very high quality leaving the guest feeling spoilt. The accommodation was excellent and our hosts could not have done more. Outstanding value for something really special in the heart of beautiful Belvès. We will most certainly be returning. It is rare to find something as special as this. No wonder TV companies have been back time and time again.
