Brasserie Blanc
Location: The Friary Building, Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3DF [map]
Phone: 01179 102 410
Open: Mon-Sun from 10am

Raymond Blanc’s brasseries bring regional French cuisine to the fore, at prices that will have you visiting on a regular basis. Brasserie Blanc’s Georgian home in Bristol’s Quakers Friars exudes understated grandeur, and the additional medieval halls to the rear offer exciting dining possibilities.

Inspired by the food of his childhood – Raymond grew up in Besançon in Eastern France – his Brasserie Blanc focuses on the simple pleasure of relaxed dining. The menu is all about the produce – fresh, local (where possible), seasonal and tasty. To start, choose that classic of French cuisine, snails in garlic herb butter. To follow, a fish dish such as Loch Duart salmon or smoked haddock fishcake with a butter sauce may tempt, while meat enthusiasts will rejoice in the selection of steak cuts. Desserts combine the likes of classic Gallic deep apple tart with an irresistible range of ice creams and sorbets. Don’t forget the delicious Dine With Wine Menu, offering two or three courses and a glass of wine for £13.45 and £15.40 respectively at lunchtime, and £16.45 and £18.90 in the evening.

As you would expect, the wine list is an extensive tour through regional France, with a sparkling selection of Champagnes. So, spend a leisurely evening with friends over good wine, or hold your wedding or private event in either the Bakers or Cutlers Hall (email [email protected]).
