Lhe premises do not remain empty for long in the Les Halles district. The Laguilhon boutique – a Béarnaise delicatessen specializing in particular in foie gras – will move into the former premises of the restaurant L’Amateur des thés, at the corner of rue de la République and rue du Docteur Simian. The opening is expected for the end of June.

It is a move because Laguilhon is now installed at 13 rue Léon Daran, opposite the Lycée Louis-Barthou.

Warning, new arrivals. In the Les Halles district, Laguilhon will offer catering at lunchtime, from Tuesday to Sunday. It will also be open on Friday evening. In its new space, Laguilhon will also organize cooking workshops to share its know-how. These activities will be carried out in conjunction with the holding of the traditional shop, which sells products from the South-West.

“We want to anchor our brand in the city center of Pau, develops Éric Laguilhon. In this district, there is a real pole, with a lot of food shops. It’s about showcasing our products. A bit like we do at the Pau fair. »

The team is being recruited for an establishment that could have between three and four employees.


Jean and Éric Laguilhon are at the helm of the family business.

A family matter

Today with around forty employees, the Laguilhon company was founded in 1957 by Pierre Laguilhon. Died in 2015, he had been mayor of Beuste and deputy, elected as an alternate then taking over from a François Bayrou then appointed Minister of National Education.

It is the son Jean and grandson Éric Laguilhon who are today at the helm of the company, whose parent company is located in Bénéjacq. It has a 4,400 m² production unit there. Its flagship products are foie gras and porcini mushrooms.

In the premises at 1 rue de la République, painting work is in progress. They should last a month. The facade will be refreshed but will remain identical. The space offers 140 m² to the public.

The new Laguilhon boutique does not set up just anywhere. The restaurant L’Amateur des thés had closed its doors in June 2021, after ten years of establishment in Pau. Its chef Yuri Nagaya, crowned by the Fooding Guide, had particularly delighted Emmanuel Macron when he came to Pau in 2019. She rebounded at the end of 2021, with a new culinary concept at the Ateliers Hybrides.
