This was originally the Fish and Grill (Malcolm John) but changed to Brasserie Vacherin. The menu changes with adequate frequency. Get on the mailing list for good deals and money off. Never had a bad meal there and great for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

Chateaubriand was good, nothing special but expect rations for sides. Came with one portobello mushroom. Asked for more and it was about £3 per mushroom. Just expected a little more.

This was the first year hat Malcolm John, Chef/ Proprietor of the Brasserie Vacherin, Croydon held a St. Patricks Day dinner, I took a party of five who all agreed that it was excellent. He did an excellent job with both pre-dinner drinks and the dinner itself. We started with a Chowder, the best I have tasted and this is... More

Went out for an unplanned meal on a Saturday night. We each had starters and went for the surf and turf mains with a couple of sides to share. The starters were nice and the mains were lovely. Steak was cooked perfectly. Finished off with a desert. Brownie tasted delicious and my friend had the cheese board. The waitress asked... More

We met a friend here for Saturday Brunch & were pleasantly surprised by the very good service (only 2 waitresses) & excellent food. We were so pleased to find such a lovely restaurant in Croydon. We lasted visited it when it was Fish & Grill, now it is so much better.

We have been meaning to visit Brasserie Vacherin for years and never got around to it until last night and my only regret is waiting so long to do it! The place has a great feel to it, its lighting is perfect, seating comfortable and the music was just a constant stream of songs you says I love this one!... More

I did come here a while ago and couldn't help but notice that the whole place seemed to have a rather hostile and unwelcoming vibe, which was portrayed even further by the aggressive language coming from the kitchens..

To brasserie vacherin for Sunday lunch. My wife and I arrived early and had drinks in the bar area whilst waiting for our guests. Bar area is not manned so every time we wanted anything it was a case of finding a member of staff. We all elected to have the Prix Fixe brunch menu. Two of the party ordered... More
