There are some fine eateries in Berkhamsted so when going out to eat expectations are high, sadly for us on our first visit here the Highwayman disappointed us. We were a group of 6 with a one year old baby going out on a Sunday lunchtime to celebrate my daughter,'s birthday. In fairness I phoned the restaurant first to see... More

We have eaten here several times previously and were anxious its standards might have slipped following the refurbishment. we need not have worried - the atmosphere was great and there was an improved selection of beer. The food was simply delicious, the fish special (hake with mussels in saffron sauce) was outstanding. We will certainly return and will recommend it... More

This pub/restaurant is part of the Raymond Blanc group and provides a gastro pub experience with a french twist. Well worth a visit.

Saturday late afternoon and you're not in the mood for a restaurant nor a pub, then head out to the Highway men on the High Street in Berkhamtead. You would be pleasantly surprised. As soon as you walk in, staff clock you and greet you warmly, not just one but literally all. The attention was lovely and comforting. They make... More

Fillet steak medium rare, perfect in every way. Normally disappointed with steaks, but the highwayman was recommended by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Ate in the bar relaxed atmosphere, with drinks. Staff attentive and friendly. Good job all round.

Opted for here with my husband this morning. Pretty quiet so we had to sit in the bar area, which is nicely decorated. Ordered the full English at £7.50. We were both very impressed, the flavours were stunning for a breakfast, best we've had in a while! Service was good, coffee was good. Would definitely go again when in the... More

Sounds like the team really helped to get your day off to a good start! We do normally tend to serve breakfasts in the bar, the more relaxed feel seems to be preferred by most, however if would would prefer a table in the restaurant on your next visit, please just let us know and that will be absolutely fine.

Enjoyed a relaxed birthday lunch with family. Good selection of food on the menu including choice of gluten free dishes.

A lot of time has been put into ensuring that a large majority of our menu either is, or can be, Gluten Free and so it is wonderful to hear that people feel that the range of choices is good. I am glad that we could help to enhance your birthday. More

I have eaten here in the past and been impressed by the food and service but not this time. We booked Sunday lunch and chose from the main menu. The portions were small which for the price does not represent value for money. The fish pie had barely 3 small bits of fish in it and was accompanied by a... More

Thank you for the feedback from your visit with us on Sunday, I am sorry that you did not feel our food was good value on this occasion and that the portion sizes seemed inadequate. It is unfortunate that we were unaware of these issues at the time, as we would have made every effort to resolve them and ensure... More

Have visited this establishment previously when it was a Braserie Blanc and was far from impressed. The new make over has been a benefit, everything has improved from the ambience, food and staff. We went on a busy Saturday night had a really good meal and could not fault any part of it. Happily would go again.

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.
