The White Brasserie Company could be up and running in little more than a month’s time at The Black Horse, West Street, Reigate.
The company, a sister firm to Brasserie Blanc, bought the pub earlier this year from Time Well Spent.
The pub’s last day of operation under the previous owner was Mother’s Day, 26 March. It then closed to allow White Brasserie to carry out refurbishment.
Last week a White Brasserie spokesperson said of the re-opening:
“At the moment we’re aiming for mid-June, assuming that all continues to progress smoothly with the refurbishment programme.”
White Brasserie is headed up by Michelin-starred chefs Raymond Blanc and Clive Fretwell, and describes itself as “a family of British pubs with a French brasserie twist”.
A licensing application has also been filed. Among the details, proposed hours are no later than previously allowed: midnight on Monday – Wednesday, half-past-midnight on Thursday – Saturday, and 10.30pm on Sundays.
