Dear diners, please note the restaurant is hosting a ‘Seafood Dinner & Jazz’ event on April 26. You can find information below. Thank you!
This outpost of award-winning chef Malcolm John’s Brasserie Vacherin brand offers a superlative French dining and bar au vin experience in the heart of Sutton. Located right by the station on the High Street, Brasserie Vacherin Sutton joins its sibling in Croydon to bring Greater London the best of Paris – in food, drink, atmosphere. There’s plenty of space for spectacular private dining events, but whether you’re looking to host a gathering here or just want to book a table for you and yours, it’s best to remember that Brasserie Vacherin is a seasonal, gourmet French restaurant; be sure to check back for their regular menu updates.
Malcolm John’s family of French brasserie have gone from strength to strength on the back of a reputation for fine dining, superlative service, a plethora of seasonal dishes reflecting the best the continent has to offer – and all at prices that are far more accessible than those commonly found in other French restaurants in London and the wider London region. Open seven days a week for breakfast, prix fixe lunch and dinner, and evening dining a la carte, Brasserie Vacherin introduces the renowned brand to Sutton locals from premises centrally located along the High Street. Remember to check out the great deals on offer, including The Steak Out, exclusive to Quandoo bookings and offering steak, fries and a glass of wine. The Steak Out is available from Monday to Sunday, noon to 7pm – just make your request in the reservation comments when you book. Another great offer is The Lobster Deal, whole grilled lobster and chips, available seven days a week (while livestock lasts and up to a maximum of five diners).
Brasserie Vacherin Sutton’s a la carte menu is perhaps the best representation of the French cuisine on offer. Start with aperitifs such as Champagne cocktails and Bellini, small plates of piquant mixed olives and marinated anchovies on toast, then turn to the house specials – the stunning Chateaubriand steak with roast bone marrow, mushrooms, pommes frites and béarnaise sauce is fit for two and comes highly recommended. Shellfish are also a specialty of this Greater London French restaurant, with fresh Maldon rock oysters, Atlantic prawns and Palourde clams topping the bill. The fixed price menu offers two- or three-course meals covering dishes such as Shallot & Gruyère cheese tart, poached pear salad, risotto primavera, and several premium cuts of beef sourced from Aberdeen and Hereford farms. A popular spot along Sutton’s High Street, book early to avoid disappointment.

Excellent food and service: this restaurant has really come into its own. We couldn’t have felt more welcome and we look forward to our next visit.
I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. I had an amazing time the food was really delicious and the atmosphere was amazing. I has a really nice time.
All the party of four commented about how good the food was. Two of our friends from Battersea loved the onion soup. All of us loved the cod tempura. What had all been cooked was very pleasing. The staff who serve at our table were both attentive and friendly and provided prompt service. Three of us who drink red wine were mildly surprised that bottles which we have first ordered were out of stock. But what was our third bottle was a delightful Cabernet Sauvignon from Sicily. After coffee we chatted amicably and only left the restaurant after three hours in enjoyable company. Thank you. What I spent on the whole bill was money well earned by your restaurant including staff. We shall come again.
A welcome return to form of this restaurant that we have been using for a few years but has gradually deteriorated over the years. This meal, however , was excellent with very good service with a new menu, bringing back some of their previous good offerings. I had a very authentic and good duck rillette as a starter whereas my wife had the tuna tartare that she absolutely adores. Thereafter the lobster of my wife was perfectly cooked whereas my Boeuf Bourginione was delicious and just as in France. For the dessert, a shared crepe sussette ( on as a special for the day) completed an excellent meal, finally rounded off by an espresso coffee and a mint tea.
The food was excellent but expensive. I would return when the fixe prix menu is available. The service was over attentive - we were constantly being asked if everything was ok - one person was enough not 3 or 4 within seconds of each other. The first waitress did not speak particularly good English and she was unable to clearly tell us what the specials were so we didn't bother with them. I have scored high because the quality of the food was amazing and the environment very pleasing but it was an expensive Friday night out with friends!
We've eaten at Brasserie Vacherin before and always had a good experience - last night was not one of them. The restaurant was extremely busy but service was generally poor, although our waiter did try her best. It took a long time for our Aperol spritzers to arrive, even longer to take out order and 45 minutes after that for our starters. We were told they had a new barman who didn't know his drinks, which seems bad planning on a busy night.(which were fine) In all, we were served our mains 2 over 2 hours after arriving in the restaurant, by which time we had rather lost our appetites. My salmon was off the menu, so I changed my order to steak - the mushrooms I ordered didn't arrive - neither did my friend's mash. Her pork belly was cold - they did take it away, but when brought back the crackling was burnt. I also noticed that the food quality, although not bad, was not up to the usual standards. The steaks were quite gristly and the lobster linguine was not quite right - I think possibly the sauce was overcooked. They did remove the service charge from the bill, to be fair, but this restaurant is not cheap and I feel they could have looked after us a bit more. Not sure whether I will return
The place is clean, staff are very polite and welcoming. Went for the lunch with work colleagues. We had the Christmas meal. All three courses were very good. I had salmon for starter, sea bream for main, my colleagues had turkey & steak. Presentation was of a good standard. Desert was a pear tart. This is the best desert l have ever had. I thoroughly enjoyed the food. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.
Our food order was soft crab with allioli. instead I received tartar sauce, not as per menu. my wife had mussels for her starter, and sea bream with clams for her main course, she got 3 clams, and the rest of the sea food with her sea bream was mussels, which she had for her starter, I was also under the impression that the loyalty card gave me a discount off of the final bill, this did not happen. We did not want to spoil the evening by constant complaining, but overall, the small things that were wrong, were not as ordered, a great shame.
