This was our first Brasserie Blanc which opened over 18 years ago when Raymond Blanc was just a boy! Now with a truly beautiful new look, we are open every day from breakfast right through to dinner, and everything in between. We love it here in the heart of the Jericho area of Oxford where we serve real French food in our relaxed and welcoming, light filled space. The restaurant is always buzzing with our many regulars, new faces and the many tourists visiting this charming part of the city. Ask about our private dining room if you have a special occasion in mind or if you want a meeting space with great French coffee on tap.

Lively and tasty food

Group (10) visit to celebrate birthdays, the visit was all and more we could have hoped for. A lively, even noisy, atmosphere with good attentive service without being pushy, this was as positive an evening as I had been disappointed by the Oxford Kitchen two nights earlier. A good compact... read more

I've never had a bad meal at Brasserie Blanc. Whether a la carte or from the set lunch menu, the food is always beautiful, cooked to order, and served by efficient and helpful staff. My mother hates eating out but this is the only restaurant she will go to as she knows the quality of food is always excellent. Every... More

Having resisted visiting this restaurant due to the hype of Raymond Blanc's ubiquity in all things food, my wife and I booked in for a Sunday lunch. The experience exceeded all our expectations. The beef was the tenderest that I can remember eating. The following apple and almond crumble (a bargain at £2.50!) was freshly prepared. The service was exemplary.... More

First visit to this lovely restaurant/brasserie and could not fault it. The food was superb. The attention given from the staff first class, they attended our every need. Understandably on a Saturday night, we were packed in, but we were not rushed and left to eat our meal at our pace. Also, at the end of the evening, we were... More

I am never disappointed whenever we visit BB at any of it's locations but Oxford is my favourite and the recent refurbishment has made it even better. The food was exceptional as always and great value for money. I have been fortunate enough to enjoy the hospitality of Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons and I must admit that I admire... More

Visited for lunch on our one day excursion to Oxford from London. This was an unplanned visit prompted by hunger and a recommendation from our guide book. We were surprised to find a large and welcoming restaurant with a French country flair. The price of the menu fixe was extremely reasonable and we were not disappointed by our choices. We... More

Regulars here and love it. Refurb is tasteful and stylish, but feels less like a bistro/brasserie now and more like a restaurant. Lacks the warmth and comfort of the old look. Set Menu as ever excellent value, but Pork Rib Eye served inconsistently and lacking flavour. Choc Mousse lovely, caramelised banana in the base hideous (3 of party agreed). Still... More
