Brasserie Blanc to open in Marriott Hotel Manchester Airport

On 16 July, Brasserie Blanc, the French restaurant group led by acclaimed chef Raymond Blanc, will open its second Marriott hotel venue at major transport hub Manchester Airport.

The newest addition to the group’s portfolio will be located within the newly-refurbished four-star Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel in Hale Barns, just minutes from the terminal.

The classic and contemporary space will offer 120 covers across the restaurant, a spacious 100 cover bar and an additional 50 covers on the terrace.

Open seven days a week from 6am – 10.30pm (11pm on Saturdays and 10pm on Sundays), the brasserie will provide breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, in addition to offering room service for guests of the Marriott Hotel.

The menu will offer an exciting combination of authentic French dishes alongside international menu items inspired by the tastes and textures of Raymond Blanc’s travels.

The space will include reclaimed oak parquet floors, bespoke velvet and leather banquettes, art deco-style lighting; deep buttoned sofas; and plenty of natural daylight from the atrium roof overhead.

Mark Derry, CEO of Brasserie Blanc, commented, “We are delighted to be opening our second site within a Marriott Hotel. This is part of an exciting new phase for Brasserie Blanc’s development.

'We’ve seen success from our existing sites that operate within or in association with hotels in Cheltenham, Bath and Bournemouth and are excited to be expanding this side of the business.

'The bar, brasserie and terrace will be absolutely stunning and we hope it will be a destination for local residents as well as those travelling for business or pleasure.”
