What was Brasserie Roux has been given an opulent facelift & re-emerged as The Balcon – an all-day venue in the grand Gallic style. Modelled on Coco Chanel’s Parisian apartment, the opulent double-height space is now awash with period detailing, from huge arched windows & grand columns to a pair of spiral staircases leading up to a Champagne gallery – complete with an ‘angel’ to pour your chosen fizz. Down below, there’s a dedicated Anglo-French charcuterie bar, while the menu is full of Gallic nuances (underpinned by a trolley-load of British produce): a tartine of veal tongue comes with Montgomery Cheddar & Bramley apple chutney, while Herefordshire snails sit alongside parsnip purée, Mas air-dried ham & croûtons. Otherwise, expect anything from a brioche ‘toad-in-the-hole’ with lyonnaise pistachio sausage to a beef & foie-gras ‘cottage pie’ with chanterelles. Around 20 wines are offered by the glass or carafe.
