Raymond Blanc is opening a new White Brasserie in Cheltenham

Raymond Blanc’s The White Brasserie Company will launch new pub The King's Arms in Prestbury, near Cheltenham, in mid-December 2019.

Raymond Blanc has confirmed that his White Brasserie Company chain will open new pub, The King’s Arms in Prestbury, on the outskirts of Cheltenham – with bookings being taken for lunch and dinner from Monday 16 December 2019.

The King’s Arms will be the 20th site in the UK for the famous chef’s pub chain, offering a British pub atmosphere with a ‘French brasserie twist.’

The Grade II listed building in Prestbury has undergone a huge renovation and refurbishment, led by The White Brasserie Company’s award-winning head of design, Inge Watrobski, with the outside space being designed by local designer, Dee Campling.


The King’s Arms will feature a ‘traditional bar area’ with space for just over 100 people to eat. There will also be a garden with quirky potting sheds, each seating up to six people to dine alfresco, surrounded by atmospheric lighting.


Despite Crown Carveries, the former owners of the Prestbury pub, previously denying to SoGlos that Raymond Blanc was taking over back in 2018, it appears that the rumours were true, and the new venue will open its doors on Monday 16 December 2019, a week later than previously announced.

Dishes at Raymond Blanc’s new Cheltenham pub venue will include smoked pork belly with apple and crackling; paella valenciana with red mullet; as well as seasonal dishes such as British roast pheasant; all cooked using sustainably sourced ingredients.

For more information, see The King’s Arms Prestbury or call (01242) 520012.
