Looks pretty awful from the outside, but don’t let that put you off. Friendly and buzzing inside, and packed with locals on a Tuesday lunchtime. Four courses, a drink and coffee for 15.5 euros is great value for money. Roast chicken was delicious.

Lovely friendly and welcoming staff in a relaxed atmosphere where the French eat! There was a good choice within each course and there was half a carafe of wine or a beer or soft drink included in the price. Couldn't fault it.

On the main road between Pozieres and Albert, le Poppy is a fairly uninspiring restaurant of the kind that probably attracts a good lunchtime trade with lorry drivers. In the evening it is perhaps quieter but still offers food of the ‘Menu du Jour’ kind....More

This is a no-nonsense little restaurant, with kind and helpful staff, and food which is nit brilliant but is acceptable. The 'special' was boeuf bourgignon in beer - unusual but good. We tried the veal head - not too bad. The herring starter was ok,...More

A country styled restaurant offering a simple 4 course limited choice menu (including wine) great value! The staff were welcoming friendly and efficient, I particularly enjoyed the boeuf bourginone and the excellent local cheese. A fantastic glass of Armagnac for just 4 Euros!
