On Easter Sunday we went to Brasserie Blanc and on arrival very friendly staff. Took our order, forgot one of the starters and then the main course came without one of the ingredients, so not great. The manager was brilliant and really tried to rectify the situation. Overall the food was OK, but the service from the manager really helped turn it around

Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Karthik and his team, especially Henry, went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, our guests were well looked after, we as Bride and Groom, relaxed, enjoyed the food and the amazing service/atmosphere - and all in all made it an amazing experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend the restaurant and particularly upstairs for a private function. Thank you again for such a memorable day.

First time in Winchester and the first time in a Brasserie Blanc. We are enjoying Winchester and loved Brasserie Blanc. I'm always a bit cautious about celebrity chef restaurants but this lived up to the chef's reputation. Not cheap but not unreasonable for what you get. The service was brilliant and the food wonderful. We had a nice bottle of Cotes de Rhone Villages with our meal which was sensibly priced and we will be on the look out for other rested from this chain.

First time visiting, won’t be rushing back. Slow and inattentive service. Starters were good, but 3 out of 4 mains were cold and one was very undercooked which we sent back.
Plenty of alternative places to eat in and around Winchester with a comparable or better dining experience.

I just love the food there.
Being French myself, I feel well placed to comment on how great my food was.
I started with escargots and ended up saucing the whole garlic butter with bread.. as you do in France !
And then I had the moules frites. I chose the curry and cream one for a change and it was delicately flavoured. Of course, I sauced the whole lot away despite being full. As you can see from the 2 pics, it was all gone !
It was just great and the service was friendly and efficient . I will go back
