La Barbe in Reigate has been serving the Francophiles of Surrey for more than 35 years.
Our new head chef Patrick Brandao hails from Biarritz in South West France.
Having worked with celebrated chefs such as Alain Ducasse and Pierre Gagnaire at L’Ecole Hoteliere de Biarritz, he spent two years in Switzerland at acclaimed restaurant Auberge Aux 2 Sapins in Montricher.
Within 10 months of becoming pastry chef and then sous chef at new restaurant L’Impertinent in Biarritz, the establishment achieved their first Michelin Star. This was his last post before La Barbe.
He promises exquisite French flavour in the relaxed and welcoming setting of La Barbe.
