SquareMeal Review of Brasserie Vacherin

Chef-proprietor Malcolm John has been in the restaurant trade long enough to know which buttons to push, & has put his experience to good use in this bright all-day brasserie in Sutton. The menu, a mix of French top hits, offers breakfasts of croissants or eggs Benedict, plus full meals of moules marinières, duck confit with lentils, or sea bream with green beans & saffron sauce. A French-based wine list provides ample accompaniment. Quick lunchers are served by a short, inexpensive list of speedy dishes including salads, omelettes & steak baguette; there’s a set menu for those who have more time. Service is slick, the room chic without being chi-chi, & the cooking absolutely comme il faut. The local competition has been put to shame.

Lucky old Sutton to have this little treasure in its midst. This is a proper, fine dining establishment which would be a lot more expensive if it was in the West End.

Greeted well on arrival – we were the only ones in the restaurant at 12 noon on Sunday. Table was booked – after a 15 minute wait in the reception area I had to ask to be shown to our table. Three course set menu took 2 hours 35 minutes. We waited at least ten minutes for each course to be served, then another 10 minutes for next course to arrive after the plates were cleared. We waited 15 minutes and no one bothered to take our desert order – I had find the manager to ask her to take it. The music was dreadful. I asked three times for it to be turned down – it was, but after a few minutes it was turned up again. I refused to pay the discretionary service charge that was added to the bill. I complained to the manager and was told the slow service was because everything was cooked fresh – they had time to go out & pick the apples for the apple crumble – 15 minutes from ordering to arrival. I will not go there again. The food was very average and served on cold plates.

“Sutton its only 30 minutes on a train to some of the best restaurants in the world!” and until this restaurant opened that would have been Suttons only gastranomic claim to fame. But when Malcolm John opened up Brasserie Vacherin in November last year that all changed. Think Cote with a wider menu and you're on the right lines, very good french brasserie. The lunch at just under £15 for three courses is staggeringly good value. All the right touches, freshly baked bread on arrival served with heavenly anchovy butter, tap water in jugs. Service is friendly, well informed and attentive enough. I have been here more times in the last three months then anywhere else. Fabulous local restaurant that almost makes you wish you were local!
