Delicious local food, good value, very good with children and babies. Although on a main road the garden at the back is delightful. Opens out onto fields where the children could have a run around between courses! Highly recommended.

The road between Castres and Albi (D612) is a quite country road with few signs of places to eat. My wife and I were passing Le Messidor at mid-day on a very hot July day and stopped to look at the menu outside this rustic restaurant. The owner came out and asked if were wanted lunch when we said we did he invited me to park my car at the back of the restaurant under some trees so that it would be in the shade, which was a kind thought. We sat on the terrace and were pleased to see over the next hour more clients turned up, mainly families but some business people as well. We were offered a menu and told that the lunch menu (€11) consisted of salmon terrine followed by cous cous of the region with either fruit salad or panna cotta for dessert. The salmon terrine was delicious, generous and was garnished with melon and tomato from our host’s garden, with an egg from his chickens. The cous cous consisted of a whole braised pigeon (I suspect shot by our host) and ratatouille made from vegetables from the garden. All was wonderfully fresh and well cooked. The whole meal, including a pichet of wine and 2 coffees came to €28. Wonderful traditional food at a traditional price.
