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.

Good food

I've been here multiple times and the staff are always very kind and the food is very tasty. The only downside is that service can be slow and there isn't a lot of food options

I haven't eaten here for years. I went 3 years ago and hated the food and the service. Went for a friend's birthday due to set menu. The set menu is pants! so opted for a la carte. Steak Tartare brilliant and my pork belly main was divine. Service was good and the wine very pleasant - would go again... More

I booked Brasserie Blanc for a pre wedding celebration dinner for my friends. I booked and picked a table near the window with a view if Jericho. When we got there the table was already taken so they chose another table around the back in the corner for which they didn't seem to mind that this mistake had happened. We... More

The early dinner menu has moved from 7.00 to 6.30. However at 6.20 we had to ask specifically for this menu as it was not offered by the waitress. Starter of spring vegetables with a poached egg couldn't have been better. Lightly crunchy veg. and a soft egg. Main course of Beef Provencale was an utter disappointment. Though nicely presented,...

I ordered fish in a white wine sauce - what came was fish in a cream and white wine sauce - I ask if the sauce could be made with out cream - only to be told the chef can't make a sauce with out cream. Really! I hope your employer is aware of this. We chose to return there... More

We had a large group booking. Nothing the staff couldn't handle. Staff were brilliant and food was delicious. Couldn't fault the evening at all.

Had a wonderful meal here mid-week and the food was to die for. Had the duck special for main which was cooked to perfection and the chocolate souffle was beautiful. Lovely wine to accompany the meal and all in all was a great evening. Would definitely return.

It's hard to choose, but this is probably my favorite restaurant in Oxford. Excellent Brasserie food and a lovely wine list. The staff were very helpful and informative and had no trouble accommodating a celiac diner. The cheese souffle is lovely. They have lots of vegetable side dishes. Not enough places do this. The dining room is lovely and light.
