The Brasserie Bar & Restaurant

Promotional Feature

With a fresh new look*, the Brasserie bar and restaurant at Wivenhoe House hotel is building on its established reputation for high quality food and drink, served by a professional, friendly team.

Exposed brickwork and light wood tables light up the dining room where the food emphasis is on uncomplicated dishes prepared using regionally sourced ingredients. The comprehensive wine list includes a fine selection of wine by the glass.

Regular customers will still see firm favourites, such as our famous burgers on the menu with the option now to build your own. There is now a lunchtime express menu for diners in a hurry and a range of bar food for guests looking for a lighter meal.

A private dining area for groups of up to 24 leads off from the main dining room and couples looking for a romantic dining experience can reserve the secluded corner banquette table.

On the first Friday of every month the chefs prepare for our sellout Fish Friday and

family and friends will enjoy the award-winning Sunday roast lunch. The bar area is now a relaxed, comfortable area where diners looking for a quick meal in convivial surroundings can choose from the specials menu. The well-stocked bar offers a wide range of bottled beers, including some from Essex and Suffolk and the cocktail list changes regularly.

In the warmer months there is the option to dine outside, making the most of our parkland surroundings.

*Refurbishment of the brasserie and the updated menus will be available from November 2017. The brasserie will be open up to and including this date.
