About Us

At Our Heart

We are an award winning group of 18 pubs and 14 brasseries serving classic French brasserie food created, cooked and brought to the table by people who genuinely care.

At the heart of every one of our pubs and brasseries is a feeling of family, a home from home, both for our guests and for the people who work here.

This is your chance to be part of our family – we are diverse, we come from many different countries and many different backgrounds but the one thing that binds us together is our belief in being the best – from the front of house to the heat of the kitchen.

So, if you’re determined to use every ounce of your talent and passion to build a real career in hospitality, join our family.

A little history

Our founder Raymond Blanc, one of the UK’s most highly respected chefs, opened his first brasserie in Oxford in 1990. In doing so, he fulfilled his ambition to make fresh seasonal French food accessible to everyone. Since then, we have taken his passion as our blueprint to grow our collection of White Brasserie pubs and Blanc Brasseries.

Alongside Raymond on this journey have been a highly experienced senior team including: Mark Derry, our Executive Chairman, one of the most experienced operators in the restaurant sector and Clive Fretwell, Raymond’s protégé, the creative genius behind our amazing food.

The passion of our senior team radiates to every part of our business – from sourcing the best ingredients, to hiring the best people and setting the benchmark for real excellence in the sector.
