The brasserie that Raymond Blanc originally used as the template for his national roll-out sits in the attractive Jericho site where Blanc made his name before scaling up to the magnificent Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons. The food is generally rated as “reliable”, but there are enough concerns (“bit of a ‘chain’ feel”, “trying too hard”, “slightly glum”) to preclude an enthusiastic recommendation.

A fixture in pretty Jericho for two decades, Raymond Blanc’s brasserie (on the site where he first made his name) is the template for the twenty branches he has rolled out across the country. Regulars reckon it’s “the original and the best” and certainly consistently reviewed as a “reliable” and “good value” option.

“Reliable and very reasonable value for the main part” – fans of Raymond Blanc’s original city-centre brasserie say it’s “underrated compared to other chains in Oxford”. Even these supporters tend to be fairly measured in their praise, but in this culinary “wasteland” of a city it’s a venue that’s worth remembering especially for “the splendid breakfast and first class Sunday lunch”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
