Year 11 French trip to ‘Les Enfants Terribles’

On Wednesday 11th March 2020 our French class, alongside our teacher Mr Shilliday and Mr Woodward, went to a French restaurant in Weymouth called ‘Les Enfants Terribles’.

To begin, this was our first and last French trip and on behalf of the class, I can say that we all had a lovely time.

We started by walking to the train station in Wareham, where we waited for the train to Weymouth. When the train arrived, we hopped on without hesitation, excited for the journey ahead.

Shortly after, the train conductor came to check our tickets but upon seeing how many of us there were, he trusted that Mr Shilliday had the correct amount. (Most likely because he didn’t have the time or patience to check them all!)

Soon, we arrived at our destination. We were early for our reservation so we took a leisurely stroll across the beach, taking in the stunning views and refreshing sea air. We then walked along the harbour to the restaurant. We took a quick picture outside and then headed on in to greet the owner and staff inside.

They were all very friendly and the owner (and chef) only spoke to us in French! We had to try to understand and reply to everything that he was saying so it was good practice. All of us took a seat and helped ourselves to the juice and delicious fresh prawn starter that had been prepared for us.

The main courses on offer all looked lovely but only some of us were brave enough to try the ‘Cabillaud sur garniture Nicoise avec une sauce beurre blanc’ and the ‘Poulet sauce Chasseur avec pomme puree ‘. I thought that it was great! We then had a choice of three yummy desserts: Almost everyone opted for the crème brûlée, which was scrumptious.

After saying goodbye and thanking everyone at the restaurant for their service and food, we took a short walk through Weymouth town centre (via Poundland and Bubble Tea!) back to the station to catch the train back to Wareham. We then walked through Wareham town back to the school.

Overall, it was a great trip which I really enjoyed!
