We first opened a bistro on this site in 1999 called Pastiche Bistro but after selling it in 2005 we bought it back in November 2008 and opened in December of that year as 1709 the brasserie.
Our menu is simple and stylish with the emphasis on locally sourced and homemade produce to deliver fantastic fresh food at great value. Our Director Head Chef Mark Medley heads the kitchen assisted by Sous chef, Jake Read & Chef de partie, Spencer Plumb. Our Lunch & Dinner menus change every 4-6 weeks to ensure there is always something new to try while our Sunday lunch menu changes weekly. The restaurant mixes the old traditional timber with modern twists, such as steel chandeliers.

Our manager, Jonathan Dale, heads the front of house assisted by supervisors, Megan Joyce and Sean Pates.
