Located in an old Georgian building this brasserie boasts a wonderful interior with several levels providing different dining environments overlooking an open, mezzanine kitchen. On arrival you will be greeted by our friendly, knowledgeable team and the lively ambience is complemented by a menu inspired by the simple, hearty dishes of M. Blanc's childhood. Alongside an appetising a la carte menu and carefully selected wine list we offer an excellent value set menu and on Sundays we serve a classic roast with all the trimmings. Younger diners can choose from a special children's menu or order a half sized portion of many of the a la carte dishes on offer.For summer dining our secluded terrace is the ideal escape.

I've been here a number of times and the service and quality of the food have very slowly fallen over the years. Whilst still acceptable mostly, this makes it poorer value for money. On this occasion, we visited on a very quiet Sunday lunchtime. There was a good choice of options, from the main... read more

We called in on a hot summer afternoon and had a lovely lunch. Sit outside or just by the courtyard - either way it's a delightful setting.

Me and my bf have been here twice for lunch. We both had the crêpes. Food was very nice. Spacious restaurant and posh feel to it. Not bad value for money. Would return if in the area!

I had booked a table for Sunday lunch for ten people to celebrate my brother's birthday and really wish we had read the reviews first. Although the restaurant has great decor, the staff pleasant, the whole experience left us numb! We waited so long for our food, the muscadet wine wasn't chilled and the portions very meagre. We even sent... More

We picked Brasserie Blanc to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary as didn't want to go to yet another gastro pub but to have a restaurant meal. It didn't disappoint, on the contrary, we had a really delicious meal. I chose the "coastal cheese souffle" (not sure what the coastal bit was all about but that's irrelevant) and my husband chose...

We have eaten here on a number of occasions and it is a bit hit and miss. We have had good meals and mediocre meals. We decided to give it a last chance with a family meal and sadly it will be our last visit. The food was either under seasoned or over seasoned, the wine was expensive 9.50 a... More

My wife and I visited our local restaurant. We were served by a very enthusiastic waiter, who gave us a wine recommendation. We enjoyed our food very much from the la carte menu. The asparagus was well cooked, and the duck which i had for mains. My wife had crab and avocado and the barnsley chop from the specials menu.... More
