Starters and mains (not en­trees and plats) de­signed by Mon­sieur Blanc

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

THE new White Brasserie gas­tro pub planned for the Vil­lage Hall is de­scribed as a mix­ture of tra­di­tional English Pub and French Brasserie.

It will be owned and op­er­ated by the same com­pany as the Brasserie Blanc chain how­ever White Brasserie venues are de­scribed by the com­pany as hav­ing ‘a more English touch, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on the qual­ity of food’, with the menu still be­ing de­signed by celebrity chef Ray­mond Blanc.

An ex­am­ple of the dif­fer­ence in style is seen straight away when com­par­ing the menus. There are starters and mains at White Brasserie, rather than en­trees and plats at Brasserie Blanc.

The White Brasserie menu will fea­ture some French clas­sics how­ever, such as boeuf Bourgignon and steak frites, whilst the more Bri­tish meals on of­fer in­clude Seared Shet­land Isles sal­mon fil­let and Mrs Keen’s gam­mon steak. Prices for mains vary from around £12 to £20 pounds, not too dis­sim­i­lar to prices at Brasserie Blanc out­lets.

Beers on tap in­clude Fuller’s Lon­don Pride, Guin­ness, Am­s­tel and Sy­monds Founders Re­serve Cider, while the se­lec­tion of liqueurs, brandies, whiskies and bour­bon along with non­al­co­holic drinks is var­ied and plen­ti­ful.

The near­est White Brasseries cur­rently are The High­way­man in Berkham­sted or The White Bear in Ruis­lip.

There is a Brasserie Blanc in Bea­cons­field, which has a four star rating on Trip Ad­vi­sor and is ranked as the sec­ond best restau­rant in Bea­con­field, with 835 cus­tomer re­views, just be­hind an­other gas­tro pub, The Royal Stan­dard of Eng­land.
