La Brasserie

Whilst retaining the charm and ambience that have made it so popular with our customers, La Brasserie has undergone a reconfiguration that includes the creation of an inspired cocktail bar and the addition of a Josper. Burning Tregothnan Kentish estate, sustainable coppice wood, the Josper is in layman's terms the hottest indoor barbeque in town, producing food superior both in taste and quality. La Brasserie has comfortable, black leather sofas and chairs, and the sleek granite tabletops help to create a relaxed, Parisian style ambience. One of the restaurant's hallmarks is a hand-painted glass skylight, which adds to the feeling of French sophistication. La Brasserie is the perfect place for a cocktail, a quick coffee or a leisurely meal.
