Raymond Blanc brings the sort of French elan that makes his Oxfordshire hotel and restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons' so magical to his group of affordable city centre brasseries. Set in a handsome Georgian building, the dining area is spread over several levels offering a choice of environments; there's even a patio for al fresco dining.
Where is The Highwayman located?
Situated just minutes from the historic Grand Union Canal and the Berkhamsted Castle, there is plenty for history buffs to take in whilst the town-centre location means you the restaurant is perfect for a post-work pint or quick lunch whilst shopping. A little further, you can cycle or walk around the beautiful Chilterns before resting your weary feet in front of the roaring fire at The Highwayman.
What cuisine is on offer at The Highwayman?
You can watch the chefs preparing your hot smoked salmon with cucumber salad and horseradish cream or french classics like steak tartare in the open mezzanine kitchen. But if you're after something more straightforward, there's a generously sized steak with your name on it. The wine list is very competitively priced but you can splash out on good Burgundy too if the occasion demands. Kids eat well here, from their own menu or a choice of some half-sized dishes from the a la carte.
What makes a meal at The Highwayman unique?
The Highwayman change their menus seasonally because they want to ensure that their menus are using the freshest and most sustainable ingredients wherever possible during the every changing seasons.
