Lovely Mid-Week Treat

We popped in on our way home from work, being a little undecided on what to eat. The menu drew us in... The staff were uniformly excellent; they couldn't have been more helpful!

So not a complete experience, but we dropped into the Brasserie and enjoyed a very nice French Malbec and an exceptional Peach Bellini. The menu looks great and we took one away, hoping to visit for a meal very soon. Nice ambiance and very nice staff; I'm looking forward to their Espresso Martini .. a rare treat!

Very good meal. Extensive menu. Reasonably priced. Everything was well cooked. Pistachio Soufflé as good as the best ever had. Burger extremely tasty. Drinks and cocktails well priced and good choice. French martini amazing. Service very friendly and prompt for a Saturday night. 5 stars all round.

We went for a family get together. The staff were lovely and friendly and made a big effort with the children. There was a good ambience generally. The food was good but not exceptional and could have done with more gravy for the roast. The creme caramel was very good though.

Expected a lot more from this restaurant, although the service was good if a little OTT for a chain; it was courteous and attentive, even though they were heavily trying to plug a £50 bottle of wine to go with steak and chips. Sorry frites. We had the scallop starter, which to say was disappointing was an understatement. Nicely presented... More

The food was divine the night was wonderful the waiters were kind and the price was brilliant. There was literally nothing wrong with the restaurant only the fact that the food was a little bland. There was very little flavour to any dishes. A little poor coming from one of the top chefs in the world... but there you go.

OK so my headline makes me sound like some kind of diva - however we had booked Brasserie Blanc for a celebratory dinner on Saturday night, so imagine my surprise when ordering a bottle of champagne I was told 'we have no champagne' - what do you mean none? That is correct, zero champagne in the house, not any variant,... More

Visited at lunchtime Wednesday mid-March. Three of us, one elderly and unsteady. The staff could not have been more helpful in getting us to our table, in suggesting appropriate drinks, in guiding us through the menu and in opening up the fire escape afterwards so we could exit to the car park "on the level". Friendly without being obsequious and,... More

A as regular visitor to Brasserie Blanc I was a little disappointed with my last visit. Staff are always a bit 'aloof' but efficient and knowledgeable. Set menu usually good value for money with decent food well prepared and presented. Exception at my last visit was the White Onion Soup which truly had no indentifiable taste whatsoever. Certainly not of... More

My wife and I visited on Sunday morning after my birthday for breakfast. My wife had the delightful Eggs Benidict and I had the full English. It was very nice and I would certainly return although I would ask for the bacon to be cooked a little more as I like it crispy but that's down to me not requesting... More
