Over the next couple of weeks I will posting some info on bars/restaurants etc which may be of interest to all travelling. There is an Irish Bar - The Quay 200 metres from the hotel which auspiciously is on the way to the ground (1.5kms from hotel). One problem I note is that it only opens daily at 1600 hours according to the online info. I will be making other enquiries.

There is also a Sports Bar nearer the ground - probably 1km from the hotel which appear to be open all day. If anyone has any useful info please share.

Thanks Mark - think it only right that once we reach the hotel you & I, in the interest of the tour party of course, have a little stroll to check it out. Wink

Sports Bar which is open all day is about 500 metres from the hotel & 1200 metres from the ground. Appears to be a good place pre match for drinks/food & watching games on the Sunday. With the Irish Bar opening at 1600 hours til late & nearer the hotel (200m) it could be a good place to end the evening/night.

Our hotel is well situated close to the river Agout with Castres famous for the Goya Museum (close by); cuisine wise the area is famou for roasted camambert & 5 week aged charolaise beef. My personal plan will be to have a walk along the river on Saturday morning to get some coffee/croissants on my way to the Sports Bar for pre game drinks/snack. Probably make my way back to Irish Bar post game for more of the same.

Sunday is similar with further walks along the river but I intend to book a table for lunch at Amelio Melo ( 1200-1330 hours). Rated No 3 restaurant from 127 by Tripadvisor. That should set me up nicely for an afternoon of rugby at the Sports Bar & a final visit to the Irish Bar. One of those two mornings I hope to pay a visit to the Goya Museum. If anyone is interested in joining me for the lunch on Sunday let me know & I will make the booking.

Table for 4 and counting. Interestingly Castres sit joint top of the top 14 after 4 games with 14 points a 3-1 win ratio which includes a win last weekend away to la Rochelle. Tough game if they take the competition seriously.

Le Marseillais was at the match with his eldest son. To say her was completely gobsmacked with Les Rochelais throwing away their big half time lead is an understatement.

Dear Gareth
I have booked flights and hotel for my wife and I some time ago. This is our first away trip and I was unaware of this forum or the organised trip. I think we are on the same flights, and possibly the same hotel! (Renaissance???)
Would it be possible for us to share your transfer to and from Toulouse Airport and Castres? Gordon Lewis  gordonhlewis@yahoo.co.uk
