On Thursday July 21st July , I enjoyed a lovely summer lunch with friends . We chose 2 courses from the set Lunch menu, main and dessert. Reasonable cost for freshly cooked food, no loud music, restaurant light and airy and very pleasant staff.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit with us, our air conditioned restaurant is perfect for lunch on these hot summer days, or for those sun-seekers there is always our sun-trap terrace. Don't forget our Set Menu changes on the first Thursday of each month, so there is always a great and varied selection of great value dishes to chose from. More

We were never really huge fans of this place when it was Brasserie Blanc - I can't even tell you why, I just never really found things on the menu I liked and it was a bit lacking in atmosphere. We decided to give it a go on Friday night on a whim and we were welcomed with a big... More

Had an absolutely amazing meal at The Highwayman - everything from the beautifully presented starter of ginger and chilli squid with coriander, grilled aubergine and courgette in a red pepper and paprika dressing, to the main of perfectly cooked grilled cod fillet with summer vegetables and finally the absolutely amazing pistachio souffle - one of the best and most memorable...

This is the first time that we had eaten here since it had changed to a pub themed eatery. Previously the restaurant wasn't grea, a bit hit and miss. However, we had the most lovely experience yesterday. We sat out on the terrace in the warm sun to be treated to an excellent, value for money, lunch experience. The fixed... More

Nice bar for a quick drink or snack but a brasserie further in for more. Great for a weekend afternoon in Berko - dogs seem welcome too.

We are regular visitors to the Highwayman. We like the atmosphere (it's half pub half restaurant, and works really well as that), and service is always excellent with the right balance of attention without being too much. Lovely food, at reasonable prices - have tried most of the regular dishes now and can honestly say we have never been disappointed... More

The food was up to the usual Highwayman / Raymond Blanc standard. However a table of 4 sitting next to us found it necessary to go out and smoke between courses and leave the garden door open, allowing their foul smelling cigarette smoke to waft back into the restaurant. Not content with this they made a spectacle of themselves by... More

Description
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.
